Esoteric – P-03 Transport & D-03 DAC

$26,400.00 $6,600.00

The P-03 and D-03 are big, gleaming pieces of audio treasure that are packed with well-considered design and user features, including industrial-strength upsampling, PCM-to-DSD and DSD-to-PCM conversion, a low-jitter connection scheme, and the ability to synchronize to a single word clock. But the P-03 and D-03 do not simply blind with science. Look past their technology and what you’re left with is playback that conveys the distinctiveness of each CD or SACD in a composed, confident way. The sound of the P-03 and D-03 belies that of digital’s past, and clearly betters much of its present. Esoteric has released a string of impressive digital players and separates since 2002, but, to my ears, none is as significant as the P-03 and D-03. They are arguably the most technologically advanced and best-sounding Esoteric products yet, which should elevate them to the top of any well-heeled audiophile’s short list. One owner.
