Arguably the best sounding CD/DAC combo for the up to $30,000 category. At this level, competition is few and far between (we are talking about the top of the reference ladder) with perhaps dCS’s own Paganini combo (which cost a lot more) the more worthy challenger. The pair you see here is in near mint condition and is the driving force behind an Audio Research pre/power combo and Wilson Audio WATT Puppy 8 speakers. The Esoteric combo can deliver one of the most precised, detailed and transparent sound found in any CD/DAC combination. Definitely well deserving of the many international accolades it has won over the years. Built to the highest standards, this is one combo that will keep you happy for years to come. If you want to raise this combo another level up (which the previous owner did), add the $16,000 G-Orb Rubidium Master Clock Generator that we have for sale at $3,995 in a separate listing.
We have the original boxes, manual and remote and will securely pack them for safe shipping.
