    Functionally very similar. Hardware for the various SPDIF outputs are totally different.

    Re: Esoteric New Product Launch

    11k for a network streamer seems pretty excessive when a Aurender N10 is 60% of that.

    Esoteric makes amazing products, but there is too much overlap between their lines. Also they put out products so quickly it makes it hard to justify the cost of the upper end of their line if they’re just going to trickle down the same chips to a less expensive model a year later.

    Re: Esoteric New Product Launch

    When are we likely to see the next release of new Esoteric products? Is P-02X likely to be replaced by a new model? I guess D1 will be replaced soon?
    I'm contemplating whether to buy a P-02X or wait it out until its replacement. Is P-02X likely to sound much better than P-05X when connected via AES/EBU to N-01?

    Re: Esoteric New Product Launch

    Esoteric is at the Tokyo show next week (room G602)...I'm salivating at the prospect of some new product announcements. Anybody going to the show?

    The DEC ...
    https://www.akm.com/akm/en/product/d...artno=AK4497EQ

    Some top digital audio gurus (builders) use that DAC in their digital audio masterpieces.

    I was wondering why not the top ESS DAC, but after exploring the digital territory of DACs and their implementation I highly respect Esoteric's choice.

    Re: Esoteric New Product Launch

    What should I do....buy D1X and forgo disc spinning capability, or buy P1X and spin it to my N-01?

    Buying both is unlikely at this point because I just bought Magico M3.

    Re: Esoteric New Product Launch

    Can the Esoteric dealers that monitor this channel reach out to their Esoteric contacts and find out anything more on D1X and P1X as per announced at Tokyo Audio Show last month. Particularly when production stock might find their way to the various export markets.
