Product Description

Reborn with a new ‘X’ designation, the Esoteric K-05X and K-07X command central roles in Esoteric’s superb lineup of Super Audio CD players, and should really be considered ‘all-new,’ having been infused with the very essence of the flagship Grandioso models.

 These new players achieve the very tenets of Esoteric’s design philosophy, conveying to the listener all the emotional expression of music without a hint of stress. With totally revamped audio electronic circuitry, these two new ‘X’ models eschew all compromise, and renew the lineage of the K Series.

Employing a 34-bit D/A processing algorithm with an encoding resolution that is an astounding 1,024 times greater than that of 24-bit encoding, multiple 32-bit DAC devices were combined to convert the high-resolution 34-bit PCM signal to analog. In the digital range, full advantage is taken of high-bit data gradation to minimize calculation errors and provide faithful conversion to analog, thereby attaining outstanding powers of expression with even extremely small music signals.

 

34-Bit D/A Processing Achieves

Comprehensive D/D Conversion Compatible With Wide Range of Sources 

In addition to playback at the original sampling frequency, 2X, 4X and 8X up-conversion of the PCM digital signal is also provided. A range of D/D conversion modes are also available for the PCM format, such as PCM-to-DSD conversion.

Four Digital Filters Plus Filter OFF Mode 

Four types of digital filter are available for PCM signal processing. Besides two FIR (Finite Impulse Response) digital filters, which have an established reputation for outstanding sound quality, two types of short delay digital filters are also included for a more precise and natural sound. A Digital Filter OFF mode permits both PCM and DSD digital filters to be bypassed if desired. 

Digital Inputs Support DSD and High-Res PCM 

Three digital inputs (USB, coaxial, and optical) enable connection to a wide range of systems. These inputs support 2.8MHz DSD and up to 192kHz/24-bit high-resolution PCM. 

USB Support for 2.8/5.6/11.2MHz DSD, 384kHz/32-bit PCM and Asynchronous Transmission  

In addition to playback at the original sampling frequency, 2X, 4X and 8X up-conversion of the PCM digital signal is also provided. A range of D/D conversion modes are also available for the PCM format, such as PCM-to-DSD conversion.

    Looking for a new SACD/DAC Player? The level of performance the K-05X has delivered to my system is quite phenomenal; the K-05X will tick every box you can think of and deliver so much more. If you do an addition of the value of your CD/SACD collection the value of investing in an Esoteric K-05X does make sense. If you want to hear how each disc in your collection "really" sounds you need to hear what this player can do. Enough said!
