The Attessa turntable has the purity of purpose that all Roksan turntables have enjoyed. It was developed and assembled in the UK, and comes complete with unipivot tonearm, a high-quality pre-fitted Roksan Dana cartridge and switchable phono stage (which makes it compatible with any amplifier you like). Just like the rest of the Attessa range, this turntable is built to uncompromising standards using premium materials - the platter, for example, is high-mass weighted glass with a bonded aluminium edge dampener. The chassis design, with its feet designed to isolate it from external vibration, is directly influenced by Xerxes, Roksan’s legendary (and very first) turntable.
Plug and play. Then play it again and again. The Attessa Turntable features a Unipivot tonearm, created with computer-aided modelling – all to make your life simpler. No complex multi-axis design. No set-up issues. No hassle, just Hi-Fi.
The Attessa turntable is our newest spin on one of the oldest Hi-Fi technologies. The Unipivot tonearm is lighter and simpler to use, thanks to a composite construction and glass jewel pivot. With turntable speed controlled down to the microsecond by smart new technology, playback is true to the original. Switchable phono stage lets you plug and play, whatever kit you have, while the isolated plinth design and decoupled feet protect against unwanted vibrations. All in a compact footprint that fits seamlessly with the rest of the Attessa range.

There’s no doubt that the Roksan Attessa turntable is an excellent value package. However the motor unit and arm are solidly implemented and, with a little effort and careful cartridge choice, really do turn in a rewarding performance. more...
This is a handsome, well specified and deeply capable bit of kit that takes on the big names at the price and keeps them honest. It has sonic characteristics that, if they gel with your own preferences, are very hard to find elsewhere at the price. more...
