It was explained to me that it is for a more accurate single clock, and this more accurate clock sync bypasses the internal clock of the G02X and is distributed to its outputs. In other words, the G02X is just behaving as a switch to the more accurate external reference clock.

    I can assure you I didn't pay anywhere near that number for my N01 (mine was not purchased in the US market).

    Re: Esoteric N-01

    MSRP and street prices are different.

    MSRP for different markets are also different.

    Re: Esoteric N-01

    For sure....but I didn't bargain on the price I paid for my N01. I just paid the first number they threw at me when I asked them the question. They didn't even have one in stock to show me (actually, none had arrived in my market by late last week when I ordered the N01 sight unseen).

    Re: Esoteric N-01

    Based on some telephone enquiries to the Esoteric dealer in Singapore, the prices for the N1 (not in stock yet) and N5 are WAY lower than what seems to be on offer in Japan and the US. So much lower that I find it hard to believe, so I am going to visit the store to be sure.

    Most kit in Singapore does seem to be cheaper than the US, Japan and Australia. Australia I can understand (further away, smaller market, VAT/GST etc).
