Luxman has announced the release of a new CD player, the D-03X. This model inherits the essential configuration of the D-05u CD/SACD player. It is Luxmans latest digital media player that supports MQA (MQA-CD/MQA files), a format which has seen an increasing number of titles released in recent years

The CD playback system benefits from their latest design and specifications, with a new steel top-plate and highly reliable, dedicated CD transport mechanism, consisting of an extremely thick aluminium mechanical base and a shielded box chassis, with a loopless structure, to improve accuracy and reduce noise when reading discs.


The D/A converter circuitry features dual Texas Instruments PCM1795 chips to handle high-resolution files.The D-03X represents Luxman’s ideal digital disc player, maintaining accuracy when converting digital signals to high-quality analogue signals, using independent left and right monaural mode DACs and high-quality output amplification via fully balanced output circuitry


The USB input supports PCM data up to 384kHz/32bit and DSD files up to 5.64MHz/1bit (the maximum sampling frequency is still being verified). The S/PDIF input supports up to 192kHz/24bit digital signals.


MQA-CD/MQA full decoding and file playback is supported. Decoding status (Studio/Blue, Authentic/Green, Renderer/Red Purple) is clearly shown by three different coloured LED indicators on the display.
