36 Bit Stereo D/A Convertor

Featuring a total redesign of all its circuit components, the new D-02X compresses the monoblock design concept of Esoteric's premier Grandioso D1 into a single-unit dual mono D/A converter without compromise. Retaining the D-02's original configuration of four independent toroidal power supply circuits (for the digital circuitry, clock circuit, and left and right channel analog circuits), all components and patterns in each circuit have been significantly upgraded.

Notably, the D/A circuitry that lies at the heart of this advanced unit now boasts 16 differential circuits per channel (32 outputs), double that of its earlier configuration, while maintaining the same grand sense of scale as the D1. Other features include new ES-LINK4 signal inputs, 36-bit D/A processing and the same Esoteric HCLD line buffer technology that has won accolades for the Grandioso C1 preamplifier. Extensive efforts have also been made to provide support for high-resolution playback, including the 11.2MHz DSD file format, for ever more penetrating musical playback capability.
