Dear Mr Harley
I am upgrading my front end. I would like to know that of all the best CD players/DAC that you praised so much,
The Esoteric pairs, Meridian 808.2, Berkley Alpha and Spectral.
1. Is Esoteric still competitive the the last three player/DAC that you've reviewed ?
2. Can Esoteric D03 accept hi-res file from HRX just like Alpha DAC does ?
3. While you wrote P03/D03 was so good in one issue. You also wrote as if it was not very good without G0Rb clock
( TAS180). Please clarify these. Is it competitive without that expensive ext clock ?
4. Do you have any idea how long this pair of Esoteric will be in production ? as they were introduced for quite a long time.
Actually I am also interested in DCS Puccini that JV loved so much, But DCS is less flexible. It doesnt have XLR digital out, its
digital input doesn have XLR and doesnt accept 24/192 too.
Thank you very much.
