The D-05X uncompromisingly inherits the DAC design philosophy of the Grandioso D1 flagship device and updates all the circuit components from the original D-05 model to obtain sound quality that should be considered the standard for ultra-high end devices. It includes a large capacitance power supply with two large toroidal transformers at the core for independent left and right channels. The circuit size of the DAC has been doubled to have four differential circuits per channel. In terms of functionality, the D-05X features ES-LINK4 digital transmission, 34-bit D/A processing, the well-received ESOTERIC-HCLD line buffer from the Grandioso C1 preamp, and the unique ES-LINK Analog line transmission for high audio quality. It also supports playback at high resolutions such as DSD 22.5 MHz to obtain even more outstanding audio playback overall.
