Roksan's fine reputation has been built largely off the back of its fine turntables and electronics, though several interesting loudspeaker designs have also put in an occasional appearance. The fine floorstanding Caspian FR-5 was very well received when it arrived in 2006 and the obvious question for this review is whether this Kandy K2 TR-5 can repeat the same trick. The K2 Kandys are Roksan's recently introduced and least costly range of components, and while the official price of this TR-5 varies from £895 (high-gloss black) to £945 (the beautifully finished satin rosewood of our samples), substantial discounts are available if other Kandy K2 electronics are purchased at the same time. Besides those two options, the speaker is available in silver, maple and metallic black. This small, two-way standmount uses a rear-port-loaded 130- millimetre bass/mid driver with a 100mm doped paper cone and a concave dust cover. The tweeter, unusually, is a ribbon device – a type of transducer where the 'voice coil' is replaced by a vertical 1x5-centimtere conductive strip (the ribbon) operating in a powerful magnetic field, so that the 'voice coil' and diaphragm are one and the same. This ribbon diaphragm is well protected behind moulded strips and set down a shallow waveguide.
