Features

The latest VRDS mechanism for Super Audio CD

(Specially developed ball bearings for the optimum VRDS mechanism.)

The VRDS mechanism securely clamps the disc to the turntable whose diameter is exactly the same as that of the disc. This system completely eliminates vibration inherent to removable media and unwanted vibrations generated by the mechanical systems. Also, this mechanism clamps the disc at a slight inclination so as to compensate for warping or deformation improving the accuracy of the optical axes of both the laser pickup and the pit surface of the disc. This is effective in reducing errors in reading the disc data as well as in preventing timing errors from erratic data acquisition timing.

To achieve the high-speed rotation with superior stability that is required of a Super Audio CD player, the P-03 is equipped with a duralumin turntable. A specially developed processing technology was used to enable high-precision forming of this lightweight material normally used in building aircraft.

In a joint development project with NSK Ltd., we developed proprietary, highly precise ball bearings for the VRDS mechanism. Rolling elements made from precisely machined ceramic balls provide ultra smooth rotation. The application of a pre-load to the ball bearing pair ensures a high rigidity and precise rotation not present in conventional bearings but necessary for handling the wide rotational range from normal CD to Super Audio CD playback.

A massive 20mm-thick, SS400 steel bridge supports the mechanism to control vibrations produced by turntable rotation.

Coreless motor employing neodymium magnet

Esoteric has developed a new, life-long three-phase brushless spindle motor for high-speed rotation of the large diameter turntable. Combined with the high-precision ball bearings that firmly hold the turntable in place, this motor helps to further minimize rotation irregularities and vibrations. The magnetic field of the neodymium magnet has been optimized through magnetic field analysis to minimize fluctuations in motor drive current and reduce the impact on audio circuits.

A pickup designed to prevent tilting of the laser optical axis and speed feedback-controlled sled transport

The pickup of the P-03 has a highly rigid sliding-shaft structure that prevents the lens from tilting and the laser optical axis is kept precisely aligned with the media’s bit track. The sled moving mechanism uses a proprietary Hall element sensing-type, three-phase brushless motor while powerful electronic speed feedback circuits control this sled mechanism for quick access, thereby ensuring smooth, continuous movement with superior response.

Shutter isolates the mechanism from external influences

The tray opening and closing mechanism is equipped with a shutter for greater precision and to eliminate adverse effects from external sound pressure and vibrations on mechanical units. When closed, the shutter mechanism is mechanically secured to the front panel to prevent it from moving.

Power supply housed in separate chassis

The P-03 shares the dual block structure concept introduced in the P-01 where the power supply and the VRDS mechanism are housed in independent blocks.

The enclosure provides a high degree of isolation yet high capacity in a compact design.

The power supply consists of two transformers, one for the mechanism and the servo drive and the other for processing digital signals. The WB transformer for the mechanism and the servo drive ensures low current loss and quick response.

Esoteric P-03 User Manual (6)

Highly rigid chassis completely eliminates internal and external vibrations preventing sound quality deterioration

The bottom plate of the chassis that supports the mechanisms is 5 mm thick and weighs 6 kg. Thick aluminum is used in the top, side, bottom and front panels. Esoteric-exclusive pinpoint feet (patent pending) made of quenched steel support the chassis. Every possible effort has been accorded to precision in the mounting of mechanical parts, the rigidity of the housing and eliminating sympathetic vibration. The thick, brushed-aluminum front, top, bottom and side panels contribute to a sense of quality and elegance found only in high-end Super Audio CD/CD units.

Upward conversion on CD playback

The upward conversion feature can output a maximum fs 176.4 kHz when playing back CDs. A high-precision crystal oscillator precise to ±3ppm (temperature characteristics included) minimizes jitter. During Super Audio CD playback, the DSD signal (1-bit, 64 fs) is output directly without further processing. A mode for converting the CD PCM signal to DSD has also been added. This gives the P-03 accurate control over signal differences for optimal expression of tonal texture required by each signal type. It is thus possible to select the audio format (PCM or DSD) that best suits the music genre played back or the amplifier and speaker combinations used to provide a musical experience that only Esoteric is capable of.

Digital audio output

The output terminals include two XLR jacks (in ES-LINK and Dual AES output modes, both jacks are used), one RCA jack and one i.LINK jack. The RCA jacks do not output sound from Super Audio CDs.

ES-LINK, an Esoteric-exclusive format for Super Audio CD digital output

Super Audio CD output is output in the Esoteric-exclusive ES-LINK format from the XLR jacks or the i.LINK (AUDIO) jacks. When a Super Audio CD is played back and XLR DUAL is selected, the output is automatically output in the ES-LINK format. Currently, only the D-03 and D-01 Esoteric D/A converters support ES-LINK.

WORD SYNC

The word sync feature allows this unit to synchronize with an external word clock. The input frequency can be switched between 44.1, 88.2, 176.4 and 100 kHz. The P-03 is designed so that the phase shift between the word clock and output sampling frequency is kept within 10 degrees when there is no discrepancy between the two.

High-quality wires for maximum performance

High purity 6N copper wires are used for most internal wiring that affect sound quality to improve purity and sound texture resolution. Polyolefin, a non-PVC material was used for the insulating sheath out of consideration for the environment as well as for sound quality. PVC is not used for wire insulation. The high purity 6N copper cable is developed with the help of Acro Japan Ltd. who also developed the highly acclaimed Esoteric MEXCEL interconnection cable and high-purity 8N copper cable.

Play Area button on front panel

The front panel now has a PLAY AREA button to enable selection of play area for hybrid Super Audio CDs also on the front panel.
