Description
 
Network × DAC × Preamplifier

Starting new audio style with network,
with the Master Sound Discrete DAC that invites you to a new digital audio world,
an attenuator system that maximizes potential of your speakers and power amplifier,
digital and analog inputs, and preamplifier that settles in the middle of the system.

A network circuit that audio manufacturer designs, exclusive for music playback

Accommodating a linear-power driven network circuit that is employed on the N-01XD, expressing more musical detail on network sources with natural power supply regulated by dedicated power transformers, supporting various Internet streaming services:
TIDAL, SPOTIFY, QOBUZ

* Roon will be available with a future firmware upgrade.

Employing a newly developed Master Sound Discrete DAC

A newly developed DAC that succeeds the philosophy of the Grandioso D1X's Master Sound Discrete DAC that reached the summit.

* The Master Sound Discrete DAC is a fully in-house designed discrete DAC designed by ESOTERIC with the goal of achieving original master recording sound quality.

The ESOTERIC-QVCS attenuator system achieves operability and sound quality

The ESOTERIC-QVCS attenuator system establishes L/R and positive/negative independence refined by ESOTERIC's current preamplifiers and integrated amplifiers, while expressing passion of music regardless of volume level.

The ESOTERIC-HCLD buffer circuit delivers every single allurement of music

Employing the ESOTERIC-HCLD circuit as an output buffer circuit that pursues the current transmission capacity and speed, crucial for analog output circuits. These high-speed elements with 2,000V/μs of response speed in through rate achieve the dynamism of music with breathtaking reality.

ES-LINK Analog input/output that enable unique current transmission

Balanced Headphone outputs

A 4-pin XLR connector for balanced headphones

Accommodating an L/R independent and fully balanced headphone amplifier with exclusive ESOTERIC-HCLD buffer circuit that firmly grips and easily drives high-end headphones with 600Ω impedance.

External Clock sync function

Allowing the N-05XD to synchronize with high precision 10MHz Master Clock.

Large capacity power supply units build the ESOTERIC sound

Accommodating dedicated toroidal-core power transformers including 4-inch diameter one employed on the N-01XD for Network section and DAC/Audio section. And, an extra power sypply for Control/Display sections consolidates independency from audio processing.

Robust and flexible chassis construction that manages vibrations

Semi-floating top panel
Slits processed on the bottom chassis
ESOTERIC pin-point feet

Complementary network audio app with look-and-feel user interface, the ESOTERIC Sound Stream

(for iOS/Android)

Built-in Bluetooth® receiver
