l've got the X-03se and not only does it sound great but it's built like a tank, that's one of the reasons why my next disc player will be the K-01, l guess the XDS1 might sound as good as the K-01, but IMO l don't believe it's in the same league as the K-01's build quality, plus l think the K-01 is some looker.
It is indeed a tank. With 41 kg with box and more than 35 kg without, I had some hard time moving it up on my SolidSteel 6.2 Hifi rack. It's aesthetics may not appeal to all and a bit cold on first encounter, but when it sits on my rack I simply can't resist looking at it from time to time when I am listening to music.
Hi googleli, l hope you're enjoying your K-01, it'll be next year before l can get hold of mine, the audio shop l got my X-03se from is going to be the same place l'm getting the K-01, because l'm excited at the thought of getting the K-01 l sent an email to Jack the shop owner and told him of my plans to get the K-01, he said that he owns one and that l wouldn't be disappointed, l've just sent another email to Jack asking when l visit his shop to listen to the K-01, whether l can listen to it with the G-0Rb connected to it.
P.S. googleli, How do you rate the sound quality from the K-01, compared to other disc players you've heard.
