I was using X-03SE and G-03X before, my experience told me that depends on what music and recording of the CD, my G-03X can add better CD dimension and more focus sound stage on some CD only. I would say maybe only about 40% of my CD can get benefit through this external master clock. Also, it really depends on your environment , if you have a short distance from your speaker and you, then you may not hear very clear the difference.
May people add a 10M rubidium audio clock with their G-03/ G-02/ other master clock, I’ve a chance listen to similar components in a friend’s home, it really help (more significant of 3D soundstage), and it also increase the width of the soundstage a little bit. Of-course this is an addition cost have to pay. If decide to buy a Esoteric master clock, go to get G-02 but not G-03X, will get better result on G-02.
I just sold these items and got a new K-03X last week, I was very happy with this new CDP, it sound better than my X-03SE even without an external clock.Enter your text ...
