A formidable demonstration of Esoteric know-how in integrated digital reading sources, the K-01XD is the most advanced version of the K-01, which was released in 2010, four years later it was updated into the form of the K-01X and in 2018 it was the subject of further refinements embodied in the K-01Xs. In this fourth generation, two substantial improvements have been incorporated (the VRDS-ATLAS transport block and the Master Sound Discrete DAC digital processing circuitry), based on design elements from Esoteric's current absolute reference range, the fabulous Grandioso, to take music reproduction to new heights of realism thanks to the drastic improvement of critical parameters such as dynamic range and resolution.
