    With the majority of investments in various retirement accounts market fluctuations are just paper losses and largely unrealized. True audiophiles can't let such swings impact their system upgrades!

    For those of us who have already retired, the recent market fluctuations are not simply “paper losses”.

    +1 Got out of the "Rat Race" over a decade ago at 45. 200K out the door in a few months hurts!! LOL Hope for a rapid recovery so I can buy some new toys from Mike like a D-08U and be on my way to becoming a "true audiophile".

    For those who missed it....."Yeah, you'd think a flagship level Luxman would trump a 5th level Esoteric."

    So let me get this straight....My K-01X at the time of purchase was a 5th Level Esoteric disc spinner?? Can you enlighten me on the 4 players above it. I can only think of 2 at the time.

    No, the post said K-03X....
    1st: K1
    2nd: K-01Xs
    3rd:K-01X
    4th: K-03Xs
    5th: K-03X
    Hence, what I said, you'd think a flagship Luxman (of today) would trump a 5th level Esoteric.

    The difference between The XS and X is a $29 Dac Chip. Not sure I would classify that as another level of performance but that's just me.

    AK4497EQ vs AK4495S is clearly a different level of performance, whatever the minimal price difference between the chips.

    They've stopped using it in the new model flagship units, but there has been no announcement that they will stop using it in the lower level models.
