Adding Esoteric G-03X Clock to X03-SE cd player


I've got an Esoteric X03-SE cd player and am considering getting the G-03X master clock. Has anyone heard this combo, and can you tell me what improvements you heard?
Power cords and isolation are separate issues.

Your contention, and this is where we disagree, is you've stated that an Esoteric cd player should not be purchased without external clocking.

You are just plain incorrect.

The number of Esoteric cd player owners who purchased an external clock with their player represents a very very small percentage of total sales.

Please don't mislead the readers with opinions.

The facts speak for themselves.

Uhrn.... All, I know this is August... weather is hot, and we all tend to be just a little short tempered... Heck, I happily chewed up a colleague of mine just a couple of days ago... Yet, may I gently recommend everyone to cool thy horses, be constructive, and to post messages that, in some small way, may have a technical usefulness for everyone, beyond this fun-filled and fizzing flame-war?

There are at least 2 general opinions on the topic at hand:

A. External clocks always make a significant difference/improvements.

B. External clocks can make a significant difference on some multi-box players.

My admittedly limited experience is suggestive to "B".
Guidocorona ,IMO this portion of this site is a guide,a reference, a tool (whatever ya want to call it)for users to ask and get informed. When a user gives info which is totally untrue in every sense of the word it needs to be pointed out.Its hard enough to find the way in audio reproduction and when a user like Fafafion gives information thats bogus it helps no one and should be pointed the guys an idiot with his audio system that worth more than my house and car together,lol...
Toetapfactor, I agree completely about the laudable goal of being informative and constructive on the fora.

On the other hand, while I deem the electronic bed-side manners of some users rather appalling, and I may recommend them a prompt remedial and mayhaps yearly reading of the old book by Dale carnegie, I should also urge everyone to avoid any form of posts "ad hominem".

Bringing the discourse back to the technical side, It would be extremely interesting to hear more opinions about the effect of external clocks on single box players, and on X-03 in particular.

By the way, it is quite possible that in some geographies there may be a much more common coupling of G0x clocks to all TEAC Esoteric [please note no final "S" Fafafion] players, regardless of single/multi box format. This may be reflective of a TEAC marketing strategy that has established a unique regional purchasing style/trend.


Hi, I have heard the G-03X and the G-0Rb master clocks in the same system ( X-03Se with Nagra tube Amps , all Synergistic R. cables) . The G-03x was't that much of an upgrade in compare with the standard clock in the X-03 integrated player. Waiste of money I think.
Don't forget a good set of digital ic aren't cheap + good ac cable.
Put the Harmonix 666 Million tuning feet under your X-03se and you have a better result for the price of 1000 USD.
If you want the real deal go for the G-0Rb. That clock has blown me out of my chair ! This is 10 levels closer to the audio nirvana.
I play for the moment the Wadia 861Se ....I know what I want next :-)
