    Upgrade kit SE is under discussion. I hope Esoteric will decide to release this kit. it would be a form of respect towards customers who have recently purchased the normal version.

    Maybe Japan only, like the VUK G1X upgrade. But I don't know, just a hunch.

    Reading around web I understood SE will be more dynamic and clear sound. It would be interesting to try before buy. We will see. First delivery of SE in Europe will be in a month.

    They had the new unit at Axpona paired with the F-02 in a good, not uber expensive system, and it was clear the new unit was contributing extensively to the quality of that room's sound.

    I want to upgrade my D1X to SE but it can't be done locally here yet. I wonder if SE upgrades (of the Grandioso) can be done in the US?

    Yes, that’s the plan. Right now the focus is getting the new SE’s out the door. Then I think they will formulate the upgrade program. But the plan is for it to be done in-house in the USA.

    Esoteric sure is busy! SE models and tone arm boards for the T1 are keeping them hopping!

    Re: Esoteric announce new model N-01XD SE

    I guess the priority is to get the flurry of new SE units out to customers and then take care of the previous model SE upgrades. Seems to be happening that way here also.
