Roksan Xerxes + Vertere...this Changes Everything

This all started when a customer brought in an original Roksan Xerxes turntable to be serviced by Derek Jenkins. As always Derek worked his magic and when we sat down to listen to the deck my jaw just hit the ground. This thing just timed like no other turntable I'd ever heard and this was a 30 year old example with a fairly middle of the range arm and cartridge. With my appetite now firmly whetted, further experience with a current Xerxes 20 Plus confirmed exactly why the Xerxes was the only deck to challenge the LP 12 back in the Flat Earth days. It transpires that Derek has been working on these since those early days and is a huge fan himself.

Touraj offers a rewiring service for Roksan decks and arms which simply takes them to another level, Vertere have also recently launched a new Reference tonearm which I've also now had the pleasure of hearing.  Suffice to say that this takes analogue replay to a breathtaking new level of performance.
