LUXMAN D-03X CD Player / DAC
Timeless design meets cutting edge technology
Now a single digital player embodies the most advanced digital decoding along with the most enduring approaches to design and engineering.
LUXMAN’s new D-03X combines traditional red-book CD playback with an advanced hi-res DAC circuit featuring MQA full decoding.
Of crucial importance, the D-03X inherits the philosophy and experience of successive LUXMAN digital players and remains true to timeless LUXMAN design principles, including rugged chassis, oversized power supply and meticulous circuit selection. The result: reproduction of effortless musicality.
Rugged CD transport with steel top plate
The CD transport mechanism achieves uncommonly stable playback with a steel top plate, an 8mm thick solid aluminum base, a shielded box sub-chassis, and a loop-less structure. Undoubtedly expensive, these advances achieve uncommonly smooth, accurate, and quiet disc read.
Oversized power supply
For superbly stable voltage, the incorporates a massive power transformer, independent regulators for each circuit and large capacity filter capacitors. To mini mize even subtle effects from magnetic fields, ground impedance and digital noise, the chassis is loop-less and shielded.
Engineered in every aspect
The D-03X is thoroughly engineered with symmetric mechanical layout, we the CD drive at the left – ideal for signal flow, resonance control and weight balance. Our robust box chassis frame shields the CD transport’s delicate circuitry from external vibrations and noise. F
LUXMAN Original playback software
For playing back music from a personal computer, we recommend our LUXMAN Audio Player application. Available for Windows and Mac systems, the software enables superlative USB output of FLAC, ALAC, WAV, AIFF, MP3 and DSF/DSDIFF files. (from the official LUXMAN website.)
Full compliment of input and outputs
To support the widest range of associated equipment, the D-03X provides 18mm pitch gold-plated RCA outputs and high-end Neutr- ik balanaced XLR outputs. The USB input supports DSD and PCM signals, while the player offers and outputs.
Highly advanced digital decoding
The D-03X can reveal new subtleties in even the most familiar music. MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The player includes MQA technology, which enables you to play back MQA-CDs as well as MQA audio files up to 24-bit transferred via USB, optical and coaxial inputs.
Dual monaural D-to-A Converters
LUXMAN engineers selected the Texas Instruments 32-bit PCM1795 D-to-A converters to process digial signals with remarable precision. Seperate Right and Left channel conversion helps reveal the subtlest micro-dynamics.
Aluminum Remote Control
The supplied aluminum remote control has the same blasted white finishes the front panel. You can use the numeric keypad, transport controls and display dimmer with out moving from the ideal listening position.
Display with zoom mode
LUXMAN’s zoom mode makes the fluores cent display easy to see from a distance. In addition, a multi-colored LED indicates MQA decode status (blue for Studio, green for Authentic, and purple/red for Renderer).

Accuracy, sensitivity, musicality
Welcome to the ultimate expression of musicality. Our flagship SACD/CD player, the D-10X builds on the brilliant heritage of our acclaimed D-08u, adding more playback capabilities, the latest conver sion technology, a robustly reinforced mechanism and a refined analog output stage.

Introducing ODNF-u – Only Distortion Negative Feedback (ultimate) – in a fully balanced output amplifier.
Well-grounded in fundamental principles and endowed with the most advanced mechanical, digital and analog technology, the LUXMAN D-10X opens the curtain on the ultimate soundstage.
Latest LxDTM-i transport
To minimize even the slightest distortions triggered by vibration and resonance, we upgraded the disc drive, creating the LxDTM-i – LUXMAN original Disc Transport Mechanism. We enclose the drive in 8 mm thick aluminum sides that extend to the front and rear panels, plus a 5 mm thick steel top plate. The physical mounting system forms an integrated structure that supports the side frame to improved disc reading mechanism.
Substancial power supply
To provide highly abundant, highly stable power, we increased the power transformer capacity by 27% compared to our previous flagship. We also provide independent regulators for each circuit along with formidable filter capacitors for the ultimate stability.
Unique LUXMAN PCB layout
Dielectric effects, unwanted resistance and stray capacitance in printed circuit board patterns can all degrade the audio signal. LUXMAN suppresses these effects with generously thick 100 pm copper foil, gold-plated connections and peel coat removal of the solder mask. In addition, our gently curved wiring pattern delivers smooth signal flow.
Versatile digital inputs
To complement advanced audio systems, we provide one coaxial and two optical inputs, plus a USB input that supports both DSD and PCM. In addition to isochronous transfer, the USB supports four modes of Bulk Pet® transfer that optimise the processor load between the source and the D-10X for improved transparency.
