You cannot go wrong with Luxman nor Marantz.
@tim_p hi, have you compared both? I mena the rubi vs the D 07x? Would be interested to know. Maybe some insights about the Luxman D05u ? Im considering some of this:
Marantz saki ruby
Denon dcd 110
A used Esoteric is tremendous value. There is a used Esoteric X-03 on A’gon right now for $3,500:
I tested its DAC against my Denafrips Venus II. The Venus had a slight edge over the DV-50S. But it was very close.
Denon dcd-a110 110th anniversary edition sacd player is awesome. Built like a tank. The Redbook playback is detailed, slightly warm timbre which creates a big soundstage. The SACD is excellent.
