@jafant its tough to say because I was not able to do a direct comparison between the Luxman, Cary, and Esoteric. Many years (and pieces of equipment) passed between me owning all of those cdp. I will say I had both the Cary 303 and 306 and sold those pretty quickly. I can say for sure I was not highly impressed with those. I really really liked my Luxman which is why I kept it for so long just as a DAC even though it was lacking features basic DACs nowadays have. I would love to compare the Luxman to the Esoteric P3/D3 I had. My feeling is that the Luxman is a bit warmer, thicker than the Esoteric. At the moment, with my speakers and system, the sound with the Luxman may be just a touch too warm. That being said, if I was to ever purchase a cdp again the only two brands I would look at are Luxman and Esoteric.
