X is the unknown

"X" in a model name symbolizes the ultimate advancements of technology, craftsmanship and creative commitment. The K-01 and K-03 have won high acclaim as leaders of Esoteric's line of all-in-one Super Audio CD players, and their extraordinary ability to reproduce the essential qualities of a musical performance continues to enthrall listeners to this day. Now, a new "X" inherits that solid pedigree and further refines these qualities in the new K-01X and K-03X Super Audio CD players. Concentrated beauty in an all-in-one form is a hallmark of Esoteric's flagship Grandioso models. The philosophy and technologies found in these high-end digital players reveal a new dimension of sound appreciation unlike anything you have ever experienced before。

Four years after the release of the K-01-the world's leading all-in-one digital player-the new K-01X debuts as a more compact version of Esoteric's flagship Grandioso model. Utilizing the same type of highly rigid chassis construction as the Grandioso and a similar four-transformer power supply, it integrates the Grandioso P1's high-precision VRDS-NEO "VMK-3.5-20S" turntable with two independent monaural DAC units derived from the Grandioso D1 design, each configured with a parallel array of 8 individual converters, which are summed to optimize linearity and minimize noise.

Electronic circuitry has also been further improved with the latest technologies, including a new AK4495S DAC IC, an advanced 35-bit D/A processing algorithm, an HCLD buffer amp, a DSD-compatible USB interface, and a large, low phase noise clock, all ensuring the K-01X achieves the absolute pinnacle of sound quality.

The Limited Edition Black models are works of art that represent the excellence of contemporary Japanese audio technology and rich heritage of Japanese craftsmanship. The series is in stylish black, fitted with ornaments coated with Japanese lacquer, a very special painting method originates in traditional Japanese arts and crafts.
