Roksan is a British designer & manufacturer of Hi-Fi turntables, audio and vinyl electronics, ranging from tonearms, cartridges, amplifiers and CD players.
The standard for high-end music reproduction
Roksan was founded in 1985 by Tufan Hashemi and Touraj Moghaddam, graduates of the University of London, Imperial College London and Queen Mary College. The name Roksan itself is derived from the name of Roxana, daughter of the Persian King Darius. This closely reflects the Persian heritage and roots of both Hashemi and Moghaddam. Not surprisingly many of Roksan's product names have references to names of cities, places and famous people of Persia.
The concept stunned the trade when it was demonstrated at the 1985 hi-fi show where the Xerxes Turntable was launched. Soon after, Roksan’s expertise was poured into amplification and digital sources. These designs continue to set the standard for high-end music reproduction. Roksan also remain a true innovator and developer of high-end vinyl replay. The combination of innovation, sound quality and reliability has given Roksan an enviable reputation since day one.
