Bottom Line:   
You know sometimes you buy an amp, and realise it really is NOT going to do the job?

Yeah... that was me. I had the Kandy III CD Player - and loved it. A great piece of kit. So when a Kandy III amp came up, I jumped at the chance. It arrived, I hooked it up to some Troels Gravesen TJL 3w speakers and...

Damn.

It is a far from fatigue-free listening experience.

Best described as a "nasty squeaky piece of crap" by a fellow sufferer. To get the best out of this amp, I'd match it with some laid-back speakers, Ruark for instance.

Bottom Line:   
This is a stunning product !! Power and finesse with a smooth overall presentation. For example my a bit weak Naim could not drive my pair of PMC DB1+. I was so disspointed with the result that I nearly was selling the speakers. Then a blind purchase: the Roksan Kandy Mk III. Wow !! The speakers are living. Soundstage and powerful sound without any harshness. I am now a PMC fan so you can imagine how good the amp must be. Did not try the phono section but a german review attests them an above average performance. Not surprising becaus Roksan achieved their breakthrough in the analog world with their turntables and phono pres.

Bottom Line:   
This amp is accurate, dynamic and very detailed without being bright. Power is available at any moment, the bass is tight, and the mid is pleasant. Sound stage is about laid back (but may be it is more the nature of my speakers). Didn't find anything better at this price level.

Bottom Line:   
I bought the K-1 MKIII about six months ago. On the used market for under $600 with the right equipment synergy you'd be hard pressed to beat the sound. With clean electric coming in and decent associated equipment this amp will not disappoint. It is fast, dynamic, with good prat, detail and extension on both ends. Late at night with good clean power this unit sounds very good. Only issue I have is the original remote didn't come with it and my Logitech Harmony doesn't always work. Does not affect the sound though. Does sound better being left on 24/7.

Strengths: Power, good finese, dynamics and top to bottom coherrency.

Weakness: Remote issues only on my unit.

Bottom Line:   
Bought the amp way back in 2003. After some long hours of break-in, the amp finally sound pleasant with sweetness especially in female vocals. It is a great entry level integrated amp. With its 120wpc, it can drive many a speakers. It is built to bi-amp especially with its own products too.
