Expert review by:

Roksan Kandy K2 TR5 review

 

This petite Kandy pitches above its station, thanks to the credentials of its much larger Caspian FR-5 brother

Beautiful cabinetwork ; Good imaging and a sweet top end

Lacks basic neutrality, so results can be difficult to predict

Expert review by:

Roksan Kandy K2 CD Player

 

The Roksan Kandy K2 system delivers musical delicacy and drama in flawlessly balanced proportion

Delightfully balanced performance ; Relatively inexpensive ; Reek of high-end class

With this sort of highly capable and enjoyable performance on offer at this price it would honestly be churlish to pick fault

The Radiohead CD, which brims with potentially distracting elements that can cause a disjointed presentation, comes across with agreeable cogency and a thoroughly natural flow with all the detail tightly knitted into the music's structure

Roksan Kandy K2 TR-5 - £895

 

This petite Kandy pitches above its station, thanks to the credentials of its much larger Caspian FR-5 brother

Beautiful cabinet-work, good imaging and a sweet top end

Lacks basic neutrality, so results can be difficult to predict

Delivers a sweet top end from its ribbon tweeter, but overall tonal balance is rather uneven

Expert review by:

Roksan Kandy K2 - £899

 

With a highly competitive price tag, Roksan pushes all the right buttons on this fine player

Rhythmically top-notch and generally full of life and verve

Just a shade light in the lower midrange and bass could be better controlled

An excellent all-rounder, this player makes the most of any music

Expert review by:

Roksan Kandy K2 TR-5

 

Stunning speakers that deserve to be labeled as serious contenders for class-leading status

Lively, entertaining and hugely enjoyable sound ; breathtaking detail in the treble ; tight, punchy bass ; excellent integration

You might want a smidgen more bass

Expert review by:

Roksan Kandy K2 amp

 

Arguably the best all-rounder we've heard below the grand mark

Brilliant all-round sound ; unfussy with partnering equipment and music ; great build

The distinctive new look means it won't be a good visual match with third-party components

Expert review by:

Roksan Kandy K2 speakers

 

The last piece of the Kandy puzzle is here, and these K2 speakers are absolute stunners

Produce sound with stunning integrity, honesty and excitement ; great looks and build ; wonderful flexibility

Some may hanker for a bit more bass ; is it really necessary to have two logos

Expert review by:

Roksan Kandy K2

 

The Kandy K2 is well worth a listen, but competition is tough

Refined sound ; good detail, timing and dynamics ; well made ; fine remote

Quality of competition ; cluttered display ; cramped controls

Expert review by:

Roksan Kandy K2 BT

 

A delivery packed with power and punch, but some of the heart and soul is missing

Powerful and punchy ; Delivers big dynamics ; Loads of detail ; Integrated Bluetooth

Lacks a little subtlety ; Imperfect timing

In fact, “strong” is a good word to use in relation to the Kandy K2 BT. The amount of power it has got and the way it uses that to create punch and massive dynamic shifts are very rare at this price, and there are some who will love the amp just for that.
