    Re: Eosteric N-05

    Neither N-01 nor N-05 is MQA certified at this moment, but I hope to see N-01 achieve certification soon.

    When certified they will be able to perform full MQA decoding.

    Re: Eosteric N-05

    I was speaking with an ex-esoteric dealer today and he mentioned that "the N-05 is a rebadged Lumin". Is the main board inside the N-05 manufactured by Lumin? If so, which Lumin is the N-05 most similar to, D2, A1, T1? Are all internals of the N-05 made by Lumin, or just the digital section?

    Esoteric N-01 / N-05 are not rebadged Lumin. No Lumin hardware use AK DAC chips. Esoteric uses AK DAC chips exclusively. So they sound different, but they operate in exactly the same way. Although I cannot tell specifics, to give you a hint - look at the photos of the internals of K-05X and N-05.

    Hopefully that means they will release it for the N-05 soon.

    Re: Eosteric N-05

    Heard from Esoteric today regarding Roon - “Hi Stephen. Esoteric Japan has informed us that the N-05 is in the certification process with Roon to become Roon Ready. It needed to complete MQA certification before Roon certification began.”
