Excellent value

  • Excerpt: I am not an expert of music but I do enjoy listening to a variety of genres. This player is a great value, the audio is clear, accurate and pleasant. Currently it is connected to an Onkyo TX NR515 AV receiver as I search for an integrated audio amplifier. In the meantime, I enjoy listening to Rosanne Cash, Paul Simon and classical music by London Philarmonic Orchestra.
  • Pros: Great Sound

Pure MAGIC! An audiophile BARGAIN!

CQ DX, Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: I've been a longtime audiophile, having had my first taste for better sounding hi-fi equipment listening to a classic FISHER 500C tubed receiver/amplifier with highly acclaimed German Telefunken tubes (circa 1965). This was my father's sacred stereo, and as a curious teen back in the 70's, I would sneak a few listens when he was away at work (since I wasn't supposed to touch/use his equipment)! The mold was set.

Wow..

  • Summary: I love this thing..I was using a Sony CE275 5 disc that made so much noise when the music was not playing but sounded good otherwise.. Also used a Panasonic SA PM19 Micro System with 5 disc which actually sounded better than the Sony.. I researched the heck out of CD players wanting to find a really good one without having to spend a stupid amount.. All searches took me back to this model.. The only thing I had reservations about was it being a single disc..

The Best For The Money...

  • Summary: The Onkyo C7030 is possibly the biggest bargain in audio today. Combining Wolfson DAC's and a quality of build that belies the modest price of the player, you've got a unit that should cost hundreds more. Don't look for any sonic embellishments from this player. It sounds true to the source material. If your disc is well recorded you'll hear all the nuances embedded in the music. The 7030 will also expose poorly recorded discs for the mud that they are.

Too susceptible to bumps

Amazon user, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: This player works OK. It is just a CD player with zero special features. It sounded OK through the built in DAC which is supposed to be something special. However it sounded a lot better through a couple of external DACs I tried, which is the reason I tried it. The deal breaker, and why I returned it, is because it just cannot handle any bumps from the floor. It will hop, skip and jump as you walk in the room.

Thanks to all Onkyo 7030 reviewers!

Nohope, Amazon
23 December 2013
  • Summary: Finally, smart CD reviews! I just want to thank all of you who reviewed the Onkyo 7030. It is such a relief to read reviews written by people still purchasing both CD's and single disc CD players. I cannot tell you how much time I've wasted reading reviews of either carousel changers or players that play a gazillion formats in addition to CD.
