High performance range that builds on the success elements of the X-01/UX-1.
- High precision VRDS-NEO mechanism.
- High precision turntable rotation system.
- Advanced pick up sled servo section equipped with a hall element sensing-type three-phase brushless motor.
- Analog output terminals are specialized for 2-channel use, i.LINK interface for multi-channel digital output.
The "Special Edition" incorporates enhancements found in ESOTERIC's flags hip series, the "P-01/D-01" separate component system.
- Audio output terminals (L/R) and digital audio output terminals are upgraded to WBT "Nextgen" connectors for higher quality signal transmission.
- Main internal wiring has evolved to 6N copper class, providing a more natural audio signal path.
- X-01 / UX-1 style thick aluminum side and top panels providing a more rigid and attractive cabinet.
- An exquisitely engraved "ESOTERIC" logo and the "Special Edition" gold emblems are found on the top panel indicating these enhancements.

Main internal wiring has been upgraded to "6N copper class," providing a highly accurate signal path for enhanced audio reproduction!

By upgrading to high purity 6N copper class wire, X-03 audio resolution characteristics and "acoustic texturing" improves. This wiring was jointly developed with Mitsubishi Cable Industries, Ltd. and Acro Japan Ltd. Other improvements include internal connections and power cables, adopted from the ESOTERIC P-01/D-01 "flagship" system.

Upgraded audio output circuits influence&improve performance of the D to A signal converter.

Through the use of upgraded capacitors and resistors, like those used in the P-01/D-01 system design, ESOTERIC has enhanced both DAC and analog output stage audio performance. This provides superior ambience and "presence," creating more of an "open air" listening experience. These improvements allow a more "natural impact," and perceived depth of field is improved.

Audio output terminals (L/R) and digital audio output terminals are upgraded to RCA "NextGen" terminal connectors, as provided by Germany's WBT Company.

These two special edition models feature X-01 / UX-1 style thick aluminum side / top panels. An "ESOTERIC" logo is exquisitely engraved on the top panel and the " Special Edition" gold emblem on the top panel indicates that these two models are truly a special evolution from the X-03 and UX-3.
