Often we find that our clients will consider purchasing hifi components seperately, based on reviews while being unaware of how they will sound together. Unless you're blessed with working in a hi-fi store, it's often hard to know what combinations will work well together.
As we demonstrate hundreds of systems every year, we find certain combinations that stand out and provide the wow factor giving value for money that's greater than the sum of the individual components.
The Silver 300 package is a combination of performance and price, that's very difficult to go past. Roksan are now a part of Monitor Audio and it's a match made in audio heaven. It makes sense that having the R&D teams working so closely would produce such well matched equipment and that's certainly the case here.
The Roksan K3 is the recipient of numerous industry awards and is loaded with features that would suggest a much higher price. Features that don't come at the expense of sound quality either, as the reviews will attest to. Bluetooth connectivity means all of your streaming sources are just a click away, and five line-level inputs plus a moving magnet connection for your turntable means that this is one capable and flexible integrated amplifier.
Monitor Audio has a 40+ year history of producing speakers that are well suited to music listening or home theatre use and the Silver 300's are no exception. Noted for having very few weak areas, they're an exceptionally good speaker for the price, and when packaged with the Roksan K3 the value here is unbeatable.
To ensure you extract maximum performance from these already outstanding products, we've also included a pair of 2 metre Kimber 4TC speaker cables. A very high quality braided speaker cable that will ensure a solid connection between amp and speakers.
The Roksan K3 offers plenty of input options should you require them. The onboard Bluetooth is the quickest way to get your system up and running, but there are several other options you can take advantage of that will also give you much better sound quality.
Roksan K3 CD Player
Add CD playback with the Roksan K3 CD Player which is a fully featured smooth and detailed performer offering a peerless high-end experience. The K3 CD Player connects easily to the K3 Amplifier to provide a beautifully matched combination.
The K3 CD Player is the latest of many award-winning CD players from Roksan and offers a smooth open sound full of detail. Vocals are clean and lyrical, rhythms are solid and tight. The K3 CD Player delivers an involving musical performance ensuring maximum enjoyment from every disc played.
Opera Consonance WAX Engine turntable
Add vinyl playback to the system with the Opera Consonance WAX Engine turntable which provides outstanding value, providing features you'd expect on something much more expensive. Low noise and high stability are two such features that make this a great way to add vinyl playback to the Silver 300 package.
This option also comes complete with a TLC phono cartridge from Well Tempered Labs. The TLC is a cartridge that retains all of the remarkable natural features of the Nagoaka MP-150 that it's based on, whilst exhibiting a smooth extended treble response.
The WAX Engine turntable connects directly to the Phono input of the Roksan K3 Amplifer with no other parts required.
