As to my Lux D-1x, I suppose I’m going thru withdrawal symptoms now. Itch like hell, yet can scratch at all. Sigh! September first week better be good! Arrgghhhhj!
    September will be here very soon my friend - looking forward to your impressions!

    I wouldn't say ugly but It doesn't have the refined look of the D-08u for sure with its slightly rounded quality and sensuality... Too bad since my guess is the next c900u preamp will also probably have this more squarish look that is less appealing (to me at least).

    Again, not ugly per see but doesn't have that flawless perfect look Luxman usually have.

    Also, isn't weird that the tray doesn't open more than that?

    Hmmmmm. I’d love to compare the D10x sound to the MSB Discrete dac. I know apples and oranges but I still have a lot of cds that I would not mind playing directly.

    Can’t wait for you guys to start getting your players up and running.

    Re: New Luxman d-10x sacd/cd-player

    According to a guy on the Steve Hoffman site who has both new players (Esoteric 1x and Lux D10) they still retain the same "house sound" as earlier models. Luxman still has the laid back presentation with great detail.

    Obviously, the Drive they use/manufacture isn't as custom as it should be for this application. In order to facilitate it hiding inside the body of the player it should also be an inch longer so it could fully extend out. Simply a big oversight and probably a limitation of the internal space as well

    I don't think its an oversight, I don't think Luxman oversight anything... I don't think oversight is a word in japanese!

    Turns out the big Esoteric doesn't completely opens up either...

    So... if everybody makes the same mistake or cuts similar corners this is now considered the norm or acceptable? Both of these players should fully expose the disk loading area... the Luxman does not becuase the drawer is mounted deeper within the player, the Esoteric does it because it has a super thick, protruding faceplate. Both should have their trays adapted.

    Or maybe they do this to achieve greater overall structural integrity. I agree with Simon; this was not an oversight by either manufacturer.

    Lets agree to call it an operational design flaw. There should be no physical obstruction impeding you from placing or removing a disk.

    Re: New Luxman d-10x sacd/cd-player

    Iím not sure why Luxman did this, but in the D08u the tray just barely comes all the way out for laying a CD in it. It is exceptionally stable. You may desire to write Luxman ...

    What a beauty! It does look better than the new D-10x in my opinion...

    Regardless of the opening of the tray I am sure it sounds wonderful and so will the new D-10x too!

    Luxman said itís done for rigidity and dust protection, but Iím sure armchair engineers know more than their team.

    It looks odd but will be way less prone to damage as the thinner one that comes out further. Since they give you enough room to place and lift the disk, I could get used to it.
