You wouldn't accept that in a product costing £200, even less so with an amplifier of that price.

 

Return to seller for an exchange or else ask for a refund and choose something that doesn't hum would be my advise. -

Also the motorized volume takes some time to get used to since it has a safety feature

Didn't realize that.  Just thought it was just a bit slow. I assume the Caspian and K2 both have this feature.

RE: Roksan Caspian M2 integrated amplifier hum

Another K2 amplifier owner here with rubbish, unresponsive remote. Not very happy but will live with it. Seems the norm rather than the exception..

Best wishes to the OP in getting a speedy replacement amp.

Roksan Caspian M2 Amp

I've read this thread with interest as I have have had intermittent problems with my Caspian amp since purchase in May 2013. Symptoms are loud hum from both speakers, even with volume turned right down, and weird 'electronic' noises rising and falling - very strange! Sent back to Roksan under warranty recently,  but returned 'no fault found'. Is this the amp or some external interference? Comments gratefully received.

Take it back to the shop from where you purchased it, and ask them to listen to it, with you, and another one for comparison. If it's different then you can take this up with Roksan. IME the latter are extremely helpful and flexible with their warranty, so I'd be surprised if it was faulty, unless it's obviously been abused / damaged.
