    Re: Esoteric N-03T Network Transport

    This should’ve been released instead of the N05 & N01. Esoteric’s line seems to get more and more fragmented all the time.

    Huh? It’s like an Aurender? Network music player? Transport to me says “CD”!

    It is a network streamer functionally similar to Lumin U1 (without DAC).

    12k is a hefty price for a network streamer. I can’t see them moving many units when the Aurender N10 is 60% of the cost and is a damn good unit

    N-03T is Roon Ready now.

    Note that it requires two firmwares, the network firmware (updated by the Esoteric Sound Stream app), and the base firmware to be downloaded from this page:
