Luxman D-06u or Esoteric K-05Xs CD / SACD player?

Which of these CD / SACD players sounds the best? A luxman D-06u or a Esoteric K-05Xs? They are both around $8500 and they are both made in Japan. Any opinions.

There is no simple "better".  They will sound different.  The Luxman will be more relaxed and "musical", the Esoteric more detailed and "accurate".
