Roksan Blak integrated amplifier
Roksan's Blak integrated amplifier is a fully featured all-rounder that works across a wide range of systems and all types of musical genres.
The sound is powerful and energetic, but also subtle and refined. Apart from a few operational oddities, it's an excellent stereo amp.

Monitor Audio Silver 200 AV12
We liked Monitor Audio's Silver 200 speakers, now we get a chance to see them again in the Silver 200 speaker package.
And our opinion hasn't changed. The 5.1 speaker package proves to be just as talented, with a clear, balanced sound that's expressive and fun.
If this is what we can expect from the next generation of Silver speakers, we're looking forward to hearing them.
