I'm offering the Esoteric K-01X for sale.
If you're browsing this, you know the K-01X's reputation as being one of the finest single box SACD/CD/DAC players ever made. It retailed for $20,000. I am rating it 8/10 conservatively, because it is used. Cosmetically, it looks virtually as it did, new. I don't see any scratches. Please review the photos to see the excellent condition of the player. There are stellar reviews you can read in The Absolute Sound, Dagogo, and Positive Feedback, among others, to learn about the technology and sublime sound of the Esoteric K-01X.
I am the original owner and purchased the K-01X from an authorized dealer. It has resided in my smoke free, pet free, and child free, home. Circumstances made it necessary for me to travel for work and personal matters, this year, so the player has had light use. This K-01X is still under factory warranty, as well, although warranty transfer to a new owner is not offered by Esoteric, as I understand it.
Some of the many features of the K-01X are USB Support for 2.5/5.6 MHz DSD, 384 kHz/32-bit PCM, and Asynchronous Transmission, the use of the VRDS-NEO “VMK-3.5-20S” transport mechanism, VS-DD* Spindle Servo Driver and Proprietary Toroidal Power Supply, and Grandioso D1 Lineage Dual Mono D/A Converters with Separate Left and Right Channel Power Supplies.
The player works perfectly and sounds wonderful. I have the original remote, power cable, literature, warranty card, letter from Esoteric USA confirming I registered it, and all the rest of the packaging. Esoteric triple boxes this player and in my pictures you can see the Esoteric triple box on top of a generic outer shipping box - so the player gets 4 boxes of protection. It can be shipped UPS or I can strap it to a pallet and ship via freight, if the purchaser prefers. I would prefer the extra peace of mind using a pallet but I'll leave it up to the purchaser. Estimate $175-$275 for UPS shipping declared at the full value, with freight modestly more. Serious buyers should get in touch with me to discuss their preferred shipping options and prices. Package dimensions and weight have been added, above, if you'd like to compare shipping options from your preferred carrier. If a pallet is used, its dimensions are 37.5 x 37.5 x 5 and its weight is 33 pounds.
Payment by wire transfer, PayPal (3% in the USA, 4.5% Internationally), as well as checks at my discretion.
