Thanks for a great read on a great product. I have the X 03 SE and just enjoyed reading about the 05.
I do have a few questions about your time with the CD player, if you don't mind.
How was break in? Did it take a very long time?
Did you listen through balanced or single ended outputs?
Did you use any isolation devices in lieu of te three feet and, if so, what did you use? Did you remove the feet?
Did you use an aftermarket power cord?
Appreciate the input. I am in process of recommending one for a buddy but would like to know the fine details.
Thanks! And keep up the great work.
