    Re: Esoteric N-01XD

    Yes, I think so with N01XD. N01XD has the new Grandioso Custom VCXO II high-precision clock. You really need a G1X or the top Cybershaft and a top spec clock cable to make it worth the effort, and...

    Re: Streaming guidance needed

    This is what I would do.
    Buy a new Kaleidescape K-system 120 on eBay for $449 and import your whole CD collection. The Kaleidescape ecosystem does impressive stuff with seamlessly managing your...

    Re: Esoteric Grandioso T1

    I'd like to know if many Grandioso stack owners also own a turntable. I suspect many of the Grandioso digital crowd wouldn't have much interest in turntables. I can see Esoteric selling T1 to...

    Very odd that YG demo does not feature YG racks.

    Re: Esoteric S-05 Class A amp

    Minimalist Hi-end Style. Exactly. I'd be happy with that. Although my M3's are inseparable and would be connected to the S-05. Maybe room for a master clock? Other than that, simplicity is bliss.

    Re: Cybershaft Owners

    Lucky you. I paid full retail for mine. After rave reviews on this forum I bought a Sigma v1 to compare against my Mexcel 7N-DA6100v3. The Sigma v1 was clearly better so I sold the Mexcel and bought...

    Re: Esoteric Grandioso T1

    I have no intention of ever owning a turntable, but if I did, this one would be it.

    I'm pleased to see the production model has evolved its Grandioso shape from the initial pre-production...

    Re: Magico A5ís Arrive!!!!

    There is a lot of weight suspended on that flimsy looking contraption. But if it can hang 1000lbs of M9 I'm sure A5 would be no problem at all.

    Re: Esoteric Grandioso T1

    Why is rotational speed of a turntable so critical? If they are syncing the turntable speed to a master clock signal for nth degree precision of rotational speed, the playback gear speed is probably...

    Re: Esoteric Grandioso T1

    A turntable with a 10 Mhz clock input. This must be why Esoteric did G1X with 5 clock outputs.
  14. Re: Esoteric P-05 connect to new Esoteric DAC

    N-01 doesn't support ES-LINK. Connect an Esoteric SACD transport to N-01 via XLR does support DSD playback.

    Re: Cybershaft Owners

    Yes, that's right. The choice between G1X and the top Cybershaft probably comes down to the casework and not the performance. If money is no object and you're an Esoteric owner then G1X. I can't...

    Re: Cybershaft Owners

    M300 does not support USB playback.
    I was using Kaleidescape M700 connected via 12m toslink to the N-01 but it doesn't sound very good on this interface.
    So I bought the M300 which sits on top of...

    My opinion of EtherRegen was not positive. Pakedge SX series switch is better.

    Re: Cybershaft Owners

    I clocked a EtherRegen with G-02X and Sigma v1 50 Ohm to N-01. I sent EtherRegen back to dealer, went back to using Pakedge SX series switch.

    The network module firmware update is done via the SoundStream App. The only choice you have with that is the latest version, there is no provision in the App to roll back to the earlier firmware....

    Re: *NEW* Esoteric N-05XD

    Have you tried the factory reset procedure (page 33 of the OM)? Failing that it seems you've tried everything else. Maybe it's time to involve the dealer.

    Re: Esoteric XD Series

    The clock cable is also critical. So much so, the clock is almost pointless without a good clock cable.

    Re: *NEW* Esoteric N-05XD

    Yeah. What he says. The price point of N05XD is very odd. It should have been priced much closer to N01XD.

    Re: Grandioso C1X

    New C1X firmware v1.11d has been released. It's interesting how firmware can be tweaked to vary the feel of the volume knob and the remote control volume key.
