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

    What were the manufacture dates of the players you had?

    I have one of these on order and that would be disappointing

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

    I feel for you! 3 out of my last 4 ~$7K SACD players were defective! (Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista, Ayre, Marantz SA-10.) Letting defective units ship should be unacceptable for a $2K player, much less a $7K or especially an $18K player. And for it to happen twice in a row? That's just irresponsible. I have been lusting after a D-10X, although it's really out of my current price range. Now I feel a tad less envy! Good luck!

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

    If the timing works out, I plan a shoot out between my SA-10 and the D-10x.

    I expect the Marantz to fare quite well in a comparison. I would still buy the SA-10 again. I'm just changing it up for the heck of it and I have some of the MQA cds that the Luxman will be convenient to spin them on as opposed to ripping and playing on my Lumin. I hope the Luxman is outstanding and I haven't read about anyone else experiencing problems with the player but 2 in a row is certainly a red flag if it can be attributed to defective players

    I look forward to seeing the results of your comparison!

    Ditto, the anticipation between the SA-10 and D-10x. Both are on my radar!

    Wow that's disappointing, 2 units have failed on you, my D-10X hasn't missed a beat, perfect operation evertime

    So bloody disappointed.
    Are you in communication with Luxman America? They should be all over this! Two defective Luxman units in a row to the same person has to be quite an anomaly.

    Yes we are in contact with them and the seller. They are scratching their heads over this. Unfortunately there is also a question over the age of the unit and I am still awaiting word on the changes made between Rev 1 and Rev 2 machines. My original was a Rev 2 but the replacement is a Rev 1. It is hugely disappointing especially given the fact that it sounds so good when it works and I had this pegged as my DAC for discs and streaming via a Lumin U1. I will see what they come back with as an explanation and solution. They are all being very helpful so I know there will be a positive outcome eventually. Just might not entail a 10X sitting in my rack

    BTW...this is in no means a slam on Luxman, my retailer or the player for that matter. Shit happens and these issues can be multi faceted. So I will see what they come back with and take it from there. Luxman are still tops for me.

    mauideejay....Sorry to hear about your misfortune with your two D-10X units. Hope it gets sorted out quickly. What do you mean by Rev 1 & Rev 2? I was not aware of any version changes or updates. What is the difference between 1 & 2? What manufacture dates were your two units? When did the change from Rev 1 to Rev 2 take place?

    It is not uncommon for Dealers and Manufacturers to keep issues like this under wraps. I have been openly asked not to disclose or post my experience by 2 Dealers and 1 Manufacturer.

    Stuff breaks. We spend far too much time dealing with it to be honest, especially when those people bought from another dealer. New Luxman d-10x sacd/cd-player

    Just yesterday, two guys with SimAudio CD players and the drawer wouldn’t open. One bought from us, one didn’t. Sim will fix it. They’re great. Like I said, stuff breaks, especially stuff that’s moving.

    Daily, we get calls like “my 1985 Luxman amp isn’t working.” New Luxman d-10x sacd/cd-player

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

    As an update to my story. I have a new D-10X shipping directly from Luxman and they will send mine back to Japan for evaluation. They even bought all the same SACD's that were causing issues so they can do some forensic work on it. That's service! I am sure the new one will be the machine i hoped it would be. Meanwhile I have decided to order an X1 which i will use stand alone and as a streamer into the 10X so as to compare the 2 DAC's. I believe the U1 price just went up quite a bit and the difference is much less between it and the X1, so why not?
