Hello All, I have spent the last couple of years perfecting my current system and I am now selling all of my surplus equipment. I was going to have my audio dealer sell all of the equipment for me but they wanted 25% and they wanted me to take pics and ship the items from my location. So here is how I priced these items so it is a win for both of us. I discounted the items 10% from sale prices I could find and then will ship free to the lower 48 and no PayPal fees. So this gives you a 15% reduction from normal selling prices and I will get 10% more than letting the dealer handle this for me.
This pair is a very pleasant sounding Transport and DAC that you can listen to for hours on end without any fatigue. The reason I am selling these is that I upgraded to a K-01. These are still under warranty to me as I bought them new from a dealer. I sent the P-05 in after I got the K-01 because when I put a disc in the tray and pushed the play button I would get a disc error. If I let the disc load normally everything worked fine. Esoteric had trouble diagnosing the problem so they ended up replacing the main board and that fixed the problem. Cosmetically these are in excellent shape and both work as new. I put the condition as 8/10 just in case there is someone who is pickier than I am ! Returns will be accepted for 7 days but only if the equipment is DOA or not operating as new.
