New Top-of-the-line "Network x DAC" from Esoteric brand for even higher sound quality

 

The N-01XD is equipped with a Master Sound Discrete DAC, developed entirely in-house to achieve the original master sound, and a high-quality network module that delivers a three-dimensional sound as if you were listening to a vinyl recording. The N-01XD is now even more advanced as an SE model with further sound quality updates. Indulge in exquisite auditory experiences with our N-01XD SE model. Revel in a dynamic and immersive soundscape, boasting a Master Sound Discrete DAC and a high quality network module. These features, expertly developed in-house, deliver unparalleled sound quality, evoking the richness and warmth of vinyl recordings.

Since its inception in 1987, Esoteric has been at the forefront of innovation as a high-end audio brand from Japan, continually pushing the boundaries of high quality sound reproduction. The Esoteric brand is known for its outstanding acoustic engineering that has sustained its reputation and prestige, its massive investment without regard to cost, its “museum quality” craftsmanship, and its beautiful designs worthy of music reproduction.

The legendary VRDS-ATLAS Super Audio CD transport mechanism, Master Sound Discrete DAC and Master Sound Discrete Clock with proprietary discrete circuits, and the most advanced network audio playback technology utilizing a unique linear power supply system provide Esoteric's hallmark sound that is reminiscent of vinyl sound.
It is no exaggeration to say that Esoteric's history is synonymous with digital playback innovation in high-end audio.

Finally, the SE version of the N-01XD is now available with new discrete clock technology and improved analog circuitry in the DAC. We are proud of our brand and always strive for the best sound.
The SE model we are releasing this time reflects every conceivable technological accumulation from the time the original model was launched to the present. Enjoy the enhanced presence, dynamics, and beautifully organic and musical textures of the new SE model.
