    I have K-03X and K-03XS at home...
    The differencies are impercebtible.
    Perhaps a little more bass and better medium...But I'm not sure...

    The problem is not the transport but the CD player lens. All dealer in France has received a letter in this direction.
    There is no lens for this CD player in the future.

    'Lens'? What is it actually? Part of laser assembly? Does it fail often? If they already know there are/will be no replacement parts available, they should probably withdraw the product from marketing. What does the letter say exactly? This sounds like it might be a hoax?

    The letter is for the dealers.
    I don't think it is a hoax.
    Let see in the future.

    T+A, Luxman, among others, make fine CD/SACD players thank you very much.

    Glad to hear that they aren’t abandoning physical media and compact discs.

    Look forward to reading about these new players.
