New Roksan Attessa Series Available Now!
Posted on October 25 2021
Sound this pure has never been this simple
Developed and engineered in the UK, the comprehensive Attessa range consists of a streaming amplifier featuring the proven, high resolution BluOS technology, an integrated amplifier, a turntable with proprietary tone arm and CD transport.
Attessa combines the audio performance Roksan has spent almost four decades perfecting, exquisite industrial design that will complement any interior design and a level of convenience that will introduce a whole new audience to the inimitable Roksan sound.
"...the Roksan Attessa Turntable is an impressive piece of engineering and a thoroughly absorbing listen."
"Detail both broad and fine is available in spades, and there’s a directness and immediacy about the way voices are delivered that makes the Roksan among the more eloquent and convincing turntables £1000 can buy."
• Simon Lucas, Trusted Reviews, October 2021
The design is approachable and friendly and the materials are of outstanding quality. Ergonomics, whether it’s minimal fascia controls or the comprehensive MaestroUnite control app, are thoughtful and flawlessly implemented.
Performance and value, well… if you’re familiar with Roksan you will not be disappointed, and if you’re not familiar with Roksan you’ll be surprised, delighted and in for a real treat.

Attessa Series at a glance
Attessa Streaming Amplifier
With the powerful BluOS multi-room streaming platform integrated, the Attessa Streaming Amplifier is compatible with every one of the world’s leading streaming services. It’s able to stream wirelessly and with class-leading audio quality to other BluOS equipment in up to 64 zones.
It has a wealth of digital inputs (all capable of handling high-resolution digital audio), analogue inputs including a phono stage and aptX Bluetooth wireless connectivity. And with audio performance guaranteed by the latest implementation of Roksan’s class-leasing amplification circuitry, up to 130 watts of power is available. So either Attessa amplifier is compatible with pretty much any of your favourite loudspeakers.
Attessa Integrated Amplifier
The Attessa Integrated Amplifier goes without the streaming functionality of the streaming amplifier, but in every other respect is just as good-looking, just as usable and just as thrilling to listen to. It too has a selection of digital and analogue inputs, a high-resolution, high-performance Burr Brown 24bit/192kHz DAC, great-sounding aptX Bluetooth connectivity and the same impressive amount of power.
Attessa CD Transport
The CD Transport does exactly what you’d expect - connects via a digital cable to either Attessa amplifier and transmits the audio information from the disc to the DAC on board the amplifier. Using the MaestroUnite app means an Attessa amplifier and Attessa CD Transport combine into a single system after set-up and the UK-designed custom firmware on board the disc transport ensures accurate playback.
The turntable has the purity of purpose that all Roksan turntables have enjoyed. It comes complete with a proprietary unipivot tonearm, a built in switchable phono stage (which makes it compatible with any amplifier or powered loudspeakers) and comes equipped with the high performance Roksan Dana Cartridge.
And 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 aluminum edge dampener. The chassis design, complete with feet that isolate the turntable from external vibration, is directly influenced by Xerxes, Roksan’s legendary (and very first) turntable.
