    Interesting cosmetic change. If this is the new look then I expect the m900 and c900 to be updated shortly as well.

    Also interesting that this unit does not have the "ultimate" designation

    Yet it went from an “8” to a “10.”

    Think we should wait for the Ultimate 11?

    Every aspects (chassis, transport mechanism, internal clock, analog section, powersupply section ... etc) of D-10X have been improved and should surpass the D-08u for sure.

    However the most interesting new feature is that it employs a new dac chip : the ROHM MUS-IC BD34301EKV :

    For the new dac chip ROHM BD34301EKV, it's said that it surpasses the other brands such as ESS90x8, particularly in terms of richness and musicality.

    Thanks for posting this. I've been wondering what this DAC is about since I read about this new Luxman.

    I own a Luxman D-08u. It is absolutely AMAZING. So, I can only imagine what a D-10X sounds like. Congrats on what I'm sure is an excellent DAC and SACD player.

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

    I’m truly looking forward to seeing/hearing this new d-10x.

    I really want a new dac but still have a bunch of CDs. It looks like the dac function could be wonderful.

    I've secured one - delivering in August! I was flip flopping between this and the Esoteric K-01XD and the MQA feature tipped the scale. Thanks Mike for answering all my questions on Roon via USB, hard wired vs Roon Ready/Roon Tested. Cheers!

    Jerry, I'm in the same boat as you. These are my two top contenders for my final player end point. I am currently using a ModWright Marantz player which is very good, but the new Luxman has me wondering. Please keep us posted on your thoughts moving forward.

    A comparison between D-10X vs D-08U on a Japanese hifi blog !

    front : D-08U ; back : D-10X





    Please read with google translate.
    It's a pity that the comments are so short.

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

    Musicaly fast dynamic natural, incredible details and 3D black background - all in.

    Housing is a tank. My dealer got one of the first.

    Never expected this result.

    I believe that to be a very quick and excited assessment, unless of course you work for that Dealer or spend hours every week in there listening to associated gear. We all know that you don't truly know anything about a piece until you've lived with it for a while and even compared it side by side with what you currently have and enjoy. Different sound very rarely translates to better. Its very easy to convince yourself that your new component is better when you actually just spent 100% more on it than what you previously had.

    “Better” is completely subjective. So I dont know... but at the same time I also never stated that it wont sound better. Im simply very skeptical of any one with a 3 minute audition, in some place and with some accompanying equipment jumping to a glorified assessment.

    ďBetterĒ is completely subjective. So I dont know... but at the same time I also never stated that it wont sound better. Im simply very skeptical of any one with a 3 minute audition, in some place and with some accompanying equipment jumping to a glorified assessment.

    Plugged this guy in today and WOW - it is sounding superb. I've only tried the usb input so far, and no hint of digital-ness straight out of the box. A very full sound - kind of like going from solid state to high quality tube amp. Instruments have a natural decay that sounds very characteristic of actual instruments heard live. Unfortunately, i'm not qualified to compare with the d-08u but I think the d-10x is definitely something to consider for anyone wanting their digital 0's & 1's to sound musical/analog. I could perhaps see myself moving on from the 900 combo at some point to try something else like tubes maybe - but the d-10x is staying - it's a genuine keeper, guys.

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

    Envy! So envy. Was just informed that mine will be delayed till end August and earliest would be first week of September. At the same time I was told, If Iím interested - the CL-1000 & MQ300 would only make it to this shore earliest end Dec or even Jan 2021. Well, thatís good news to me cause my itch for them would be cured (or died) by then, I hope! Meanwhile, Iíve to keep salivating and read up your posts! Sigh! Congratulation!!!

    Thanks Jerry. I think it will be well worth the wait - something to look forward to indeed. And, if it makes you feel better, we've been having storms come through all night and later today affecting the power grid - so I've had to unplug my system. Forecast not looking great.

    Itís identical to Anniversary Edition. Only P3 and C7 get some upgrades with XD. P3 gets the most. 30, SHL5+ and 40 remain identical to anniversary edition.

    I was kind of bummed. I had a long talk with the distributor who gave me all the poop. Was hoping for more internal changes. He did say the P3ESR anniversary to P3XD was ďincredibleĒ.

    Jerry, sounds like it was a great demo - I'm curious, what amp was paired with the 40.3's? By the way - I think the d10x is going to sound glorious through your AG's. Now I'm super-envious!!!

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

    Yup! And it was driven by an all Benchmark combo, not the super duper stuff youíve got! And know what? Itís as glorious - thatís why after an hour, I left very impressed - cause imagine with your Lux combo, itís got to be a killer. Iím not used or the Anniversary sound at all, so canít comment if itís any better or the same. But itís one great sounding pair of speakers! The midrange, vocals is such a killer! As to my Lux D-1x, I suppose Iím going thru withdrawal symptoms now. Itch like hell, yet can scratch at all. Sigh! September first week better be good! Arrgghhhhj!
