"There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance—that principle is contempt prior to investigation."  
Esoteric Grandioso P1/D1
I don’t believe you can use the X03SE as a transport for a pair of D1 monoblock DACs as the X03SE does not offer dual-AES outputs. You could connect to one of the D1s using S/PDIF coaxial but not the other. If you looked at an D02X Esoteric DAC, y... 
Buzzing just won't quit: Can someone please help?
What else is on this circuit? Do you by any chance have fluorescent lighting or LED lighting with one or more transformers on the same circuit?  Computer power supplies?  Have you checked to see if the circuit is wired correctly from outlets back ...

Esoteric Grandioso P1/D1

Roger Waters-Amused to Death
Stunning SACD, one of the most impressive on my shelves in all 3 dimensions.  I had a similar experience the dogs barking 10-12' to right of speakers, down the hall and behind the wall in the yard and the radio broadcast similarly impressive to th... 
Move to tubes: Ayon Crossfire or Triton, various
@atmasphere : Great feedback, thank you very much.  I agree the NL 12.1, NL Ref, etc...were amazingly musical and did not have the typical solid state side effects; they were also (at least to my ears) dead neutral and injected no color or warmt... 
Move to tubes: Ayon Crossfire or Triton, various
Thank you both for your suggestions.  I've actually moved past this question for my setup for now and decided to stay solid-state for the foreseeable future.  I find that S/N ratio, THD and Damping Factor (the higher the better, my current amp is ... 
Chester Bennington passes...
I love their music and their weaving in of highly relevant issues and events from society and human issues into their lyrics. It's a tragedy he chose to end his life; a very selfish move. My heart goes out to his family including six (6) children,...

Esoteric C-02x and the Luxaman c-900u pre-amps - your thoughts
Hello! It's great to hear from you again; I am glad all is well for you.  If the stars align (or lottery tickets come in LOL), my ultimate target is a Grandioso C1 some day however that will take a lot of resources to go after.  In the meantime, I... 
Who thinks $5K speaker cable really better than generic 14AWG cable?
I've been reading this thread almost daily and can appreciate everyone's points of view.  Unlike some though, I do see value in ctsooner's and others' more recent posts as well.  I've posted my views previously on my own experience trying a lot of...
