Roksan launched it's first product in 1985 with the Xerxes turntable, which quickly gained public and press acclaim for it's excellent sound and build quality. Electronics products followed this initial launch, and it became apparent that Roksan looked at design problems with innovation and unique solutions, rather than tried and tested methods. This philosophy has paid off over the years, with superb products such as Roksan Radius 5 turntable, Kandy K2 amplifier and CD player, and the stunning Roksan M2 series.

In addition to building renowned, premium-level turntable models, Roksan also design and engineer turntable components such as cartridges and tonearms. This means that your system can be upgraded with ease and gradually as and when you see fit. 

The Shiraz Moving Coil cartridge from Roksan utilises a superior design construction, implemented under the design philosophy of building the best possible cartridge for the price point. In order to retrieve the finest microdynamics from deep within a vinyl groove, the turntable features an advanced profile Gyger II diamont stylus made in Switzerland mated to a low mass aluminium cantilever, this cartridge makes music of amazing clarity and depth.

The aluminium alloy body is in perfect alignment to the generator system and tonearm headshell mounting point, making the cartridge able to retrieve the finest musical detail from the record groove. With a higher than average output voltage, the cartridge is a very accommodating design which will fit a wide range of tonearms.
