Hi folks, looks like upgraditis has hit. While I'm pretty satisfied, very in fact, with the rest of my system, I feel that my Esoteric X-03 SE is letting me down somewhat, as good as it is.
So I would like some recommendations on any electronics out there that would provide me with a significant sonic improvement to the X-03 SE. Is this possible? Or is the X-03 SE as good as it gets in terms of real-world applications and as far as CD/SACD players are concerned? And would I be severely disappointed should I trade in my X-03 SE for a player double its price due to the law of diminishing returns? Hence the title of this thread - can I expect a disc player that's twice the price of my X-03 SE be a worthy upgrade given the excellent engineering that's gone into the X-03 SE.
I do have a couple of players in mind, but I will not state them out here so as not to influence your recommendations. Looking forward to your replies based on the merits of the recommended disc-player alone. Thanks!
