Hey guys,

i hate the Esoteric drives, they are extremely noisy. Used to own a MPS-5 and it was so awful: brilliant DAC, terrible transport implementation. K1 was better, but still felt like something an engineer would design.

Accuphase DP700 was magnificient, a real peace of art: transport as quiet as can be and build quality close to perfect. But synergy with my amp didnt cut it.

For you having owned a Luxman, how's their transport ? Expecially the D08.

Cheers
Xavier

There is a Luxman D-08 for sale now in Switzerland. 3 years old - 5000€.
Quite a good deal I think.
