Roksan vs. Primare vs. MF / replacement for Primare I30?
I'm currently in the market for a new amp in the £1,000-2,000 range. Current candidates are i) Roksan Caspian Integrated; ii) Primare I30; and iii) Musical Fidelity A5.5. Likely to be paired with a pair of B&W CM7s. Current front-runner is the Primare. Source will be my existing Marantz 6000OSE KI CD player until I upgrade, plus an Apple TV via. MF V-DAC.
I'm struggling to audition them all side-by-side which makes things tricky, as always. I'd appreciate any thoughts you have on the kit mentioned above, and the pairing - pluses, minuses, observations all welcome.
Also, I note that the Primare has been around for a few years and was wondering if anyone knew of a replacement in the works which might be worth holding out for.
