The ESOTERIC-QVCS attenuator system achieves operability and sound quality
The ESOTERIC-QVCS attenuator system establishes L/R and positive/negative independence refined by ESOTERIC's successive preamplifiers and integrated amplifiers while expressing the passion for music regardless of volume level.
The ESOTERIC-HCLD buffer circuit delivers every single allurement of music
Employing the ESOTERIC-HCLD circuit as an output buffer circuit that pursues the current transmission capacity and speed, crucial for analog output circuits. These high-speed elements with 2,000V/μs of response speed in through rate achieve the dynamism of music with breathtaking reality.
Balanced Headphone outputs
A 4-pin XLR connector for balanced headphones
Accommodating an L/R independent and fully balanced headphone amplifier with an exclusive ESOTERIC-HCLD buffer circuit that firmly grips high-end headphones with 600Ω impedance.
External Clock sync function
Allowing the N-05XD to synchronize with high precision 10MHz Master Clock.
Large capacity power supply units build the ESOTERIC sound
Accommodating dedicated toroidal-core power transformers including 4-inch diameter one employed on the N-01XD for Network section and DAC/Audio section. And, an extra power supply for Control/Display sections consolidates independence from audio processing.
Robust and flexible chassis construction that manages vibrations
Semi-floating top panel
Slits processed on the bottom chassis
ESOTERIC pin-point feet
