I don’t think the warranty is transferable. Very few companies will do that I’m afraid. As far as the noise goes ... I’ve owned a K-01x and now P-02x and zero noise while it’s playing. You may be left with a hefty repair bill if it comes to that.

Non-transferable Warranty. I currently own 8 Esoteric players/transports, all dead silent when playing.

Furthermore, I have sold literally hundreds of units over the last decade; all with Zero noise.

gotcha Ivan, well if that's the only issue I suppose I could have him return it under warranty if I decide to buy it.

Default K-03x question

I wouldn’t buy it if you hear any noise. Why deal with his headache? The ONLY sound I ever hear that’s different than music on my K-01X is when I open the tray to change discs.

Dave - if you decide to purchase after it is repaired you might want to make part of the deal that the seller will return for any warranty repairs for the balance of the warranty period.

Glenn, as it turns out the seller was not the original owner, even though it's only a year old. I had assumed wrong ! So, once he gets it back he said we can talk then, I suspect it could be expensive, heck the shipping alone won't be cheap !
