Xerxes 20 Plus Turntable

About this product

The original Xerxes launched in 1985 was one of the most important turntables of the eighties. With advanced engineering techniques and radical solutions to address the inherent problems suffered by other turntables, the Xerxes offered a more enjoyable and accurate presentation of music.

Xerxes 20 Plus is the result of over 20 years of research and development and refinement of the Xerxes.20 based on Roksan’s most advanced record player, the TMS 3.
