Default CD9SE to Grandioso K1X

Some changes upcoming to my primary system (DAW to Alexia V) and reevaluating all components. Considering new digital front end, one box. Contenders are K1X and Rossini APEX player. I have a K03XD that I acquired second hand. Build quality superb, but sonically not superior to my 9SE by my ears. Seeking opinions from K1X owners in general and in particular owners who may have previous ARC a/o DCS experience. Thanks in advance.

Possibly interested in SACD. Few SACDs I have did not sound strikingly better than Redbook on my K03XD but there are titles available not on Redbook.
