    They constantly strove for greater heights, pouring passion into every step of the way. At Esoteric, we have taken that spirit of creation to heart, bringing the skill and passion of those old masters to the next evolution of our Super Audio CD player. The K-05Xs, the third incarnation of the K-05, heralds a new renaissance in playback as an art form.

    The K-05 Super Audio CD player is the core model in the K series, following the legendary K-01 and K-03 players. The first version of the K-05 was launched in 2011, and in 2015 this evolved into the K-05X. The K-05X instantly became a top seller because of features such as the VRDS-NEO Super Audio CD transport mechanism. This mechanism uses a unique construction that enables it to provide an outstanding level of musical performance, which is why it was adopted by a number of other world-famous high-end audio makers. In its third generation form, the K-05Xs, incorporates the best qualities of Esoteric's flagship model, the Grandioso K1. It combines established class-leading features, such as the VRDS-NEO (VMK-5) mechanism and a high-rigidity aluminum chassis, with the latest K1 DAC platform employing a new dual-mono D/A converter, high current output buffer amplifiers and a new power supply.
