Esoteric X-05 or Classe CDP-202

Ok, help me out here please. I need an affordable one box cd player and have an opportunity to get one of these at a nice price BUT must buy "blind". Can anyone tell me the differences I might hear or is anyone familiar enough with them to be able to tell me if the X-05 is more fleshed out than the X-01 LE I previously owned and if the CDP-202 is too soft or light in the low end. Have a great day and thanks!!

Read the thread about older Esoteric SACD players and run to anything else.  So in your case...Classe
