I suppose it may be higher for the rest of the world...
Ok... Thanks to Google Translator I had understood that the reviewer likes K1 Grandioso over all. Did you understand the same?

And second thought:
The web of Esoteric says (cut and paste)

In its third generation form, the K-05Xs, incorporates the best qualities of Esoteric's flagship model, the Grandioso K1. It combines established class-leading features, such as the VRDS-NEO (VMK-5) mechanism and a high-rigidity aluminum chassis, with the latest K1 DAC platform employing a new dual-mono D/A converter, high current output buffer amplifiers and a new power supply.

So.. is the 5Xs a like a used/new K1? Has anyone compared it with more Esoteric?
Yesterday I compared it with Marantz Ruby and it was humiliating for the Ruby.

Thanks!
