Esoteric K-03 X - mechanical problems w tray

...just bought a brand new Esoteric K-03X player and have only 14 hours on it and the tray is jammed and the disc is stuck inside. Real nice for this price will see I had the Esoteric P-05 and the D-05 for almost 8 years which I sold here on Audiogon and NEVER had one problem with those pieces. I think I read where others owners were having the same issue...if this is the case not a happy owner. Not to mention the box weighs almost 100 lbs and who is going to pay for shipping and the hassle of boxing it etc. After 40 years with this hobby .....more of a headache anymore than fun !
So great to read that you are back in the world of listening to music- Gary.

Another thought on cables/cords to match your Esoteric spinner- Silent Source and Wireworld 7 series.
There are probably more wonderful cabling suggestions, I can only recommend the ones by my ears.

I have posted a query about other Esoteric players, asking
the difference(s) between DV-50/60, SA-50/60 and the X-03, X-03SE ?
.....Jafant - I can't understand it but the Cardas Clear Interconnects are really good in my system. I like them more than the Purist 20th Anniversary's ......I paid $5,000 - $6,000 for the Purist and the Cardas are what $2,500 ! This is going between the Esoteric K-03x and my Esoteric C-03 pre-amp. Like we all have said here on Audiogon- the price mark-up on cables are huge ...and the price to materials that are used sometimes is a joke ....and it all comes down to what works in your system and what YOU like. But...we have been programmed to think the more expensive the better the cable / sound .....I am looking and listening to that thought right now
Evening Gary!
Just fell into this post while looking through a list for another Esoteric question...
I just purchased an Esoteric K-01X...YIKES!...:-)
I notice that you have always been very helpful to us here on the forums and feel bad you had to experience this...
I too owned a PO-1,DO-1 and G-orb and had always a noisy grinding sound that the transport made but it was not loud enough to disturb the beautiful music the three pieces produced.
I have also heard and commented here that since the Gibson buyout Teac's products are not subject to the same " customer service" as Esoteric because that is now an independent entity who has bet the farm on the super expensive Grandioso line while also experiencing many faulty units at the initial run!!
I am keeping my fingers crossed:-)

which cables/power cords are you using with your Esoteric spinners? I am always curious to learn about new spinner/cabling combos! Keep me posted & Happy Listening!
