Former store demonstrator Esoteric P-01
CD/SACD transport in excellent operating condition and good condition cosmetically. The Esoteric P-01 is built around the most advanced transport ever designed, the VRDS-NEO with “Vibration-free Rigid Disc-clamping System”. The Esoteric sled assembly and straight-on optical pickup implementation was developed for the VRDS. No off axis tracking can occur; therefore no off axis error correction is required. The result is lower jitter and than any other transport. This is an essential fundamental of disk media playback. A 1/2 thick solid shaved aluminum base provides the mounting base for the precision mechanism and minimizes any resonance created by the mechanism, disk media, and environmental influences. A 10 pound/10mm thick steel bottom frame provides an ultra rigid and stable base for optimal data retrieval. Four patent pending pinpoint feet provide mechanical isolation from the furniture on which the transport is placed. A separate power supply provides three high performance transformers. One for the mechanism motors, one for the signal processor/up converters, and a third for the digital processing (clock circuit.) This level of ultra high power supply design provides very stable supply voltages while completely isolating the player from any noise in the power conversion process. Digtial input/outputs: Two IEEE1394 for Esoteric's proprietary DSD transfer; Five AES/EBU, XLR, 110 ohm digital outputs for multi-channel playback; Three coax S/PDIF RCA outputs: One 75 Ohm BNC clock input. Internal D/D converter converts signal up to 192khz.. Original Retail Price Range: $25,000, rising to $35,000. Shipping weight: 98 lbs. Mass. residents add 6.25% Sales Tax.
