Esoteric K-05XD

Any experience with this new model? How does it compare to other similarly priced CD-players?


Never have been a big fan of Esoteric players.Have owned several and in my system they never did measure up to the my standard of excellence.

As I'm sure you know, Esoteric has redesigned their DAC, so the XD series players are quite different from older models.  I haven't heard the K-05 XD, but from what I read the Esoteric players sound very good and are competitive at their price points.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.
