High Quality CD Performance at a Remarkable Price

E. Rosenberg, Amazon
28 December 2014
  • Summary: I was made aware of this excellent player on the Steve Hoffman Music Forum when it was selling for $139. Many forum members purchased it at the time and seem quite happy. It's a solidly built, nicely designed unit that does the one thing it's designed to do well. The sound quality is wonderful, very nuanced and natural thanks to it's built in Wolfson DAC. I've been enjoying listening to many favorites on this player and hearing detail I hadn't before.

Decent sonic quality, with details not heard on my previous portable Panasonic SL-MP70 CD/MP3 player.

  • Summary: Decent sonic quality, with details not heard on my previous portable Panasonic SL-MP70 CD/MP3 player. The unit plays mostly Beethoven, Sting, Dire Straits, Billy Joel, and, Broadway musicals at my office, using my headphone (skull candy earbuds or Koss TD65). On this player, demanding Beethoven compositions such as 9th symphony comes alive and gives me a good lift.

Wonderful deal

Kyle E., Newegg
27 November 2014
  • Summary: I bought the C-7030 elsewhere, but Newegg seems to have better pricing which is why I thought I'd write a review. I'd consider myself a budget audiophile, and in my pursuit of increased enjoyment from my music I recently ventured back into cd's. I hadn't used any since iPods became popular, but every self respecting audio magazine used them for all of their tests.
  • Pros: Sounds great, looks good, works well, and priced exceptionally.
  • Cons: Some people might find it larger than expected, considering it's a single tray player.

CD PLAYER THAT LOOKS AND PLAYS WELL ABOVE THE COMPETITION IN PRICE AND PERFORMANCE! LOOKS LIKE $500.00 +

MARK B., Amazon
24 July 2014
  • Summary: Don't listen to those who have criticized this unit and said unfair things about it. This player cost a pathetic $140.00 and performs two to four times that price hands down. The unit looks like a high-end cd player without unnecessary buttons and each button feels incredible considering the price. The cd drawer opens quietly and at a steady pace. The headphone amp sounds awesome and makes my ears hear detail and analog warmth.

A great low cost CD only player!

Greg Horn "guildx700", Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: First off, Original list price WAS $249,but Onkyo now lists it at only $199. (Amazon needs to update their MSRP). That being said regardless, at the current sale price of $139 it is a STEAL! IMO there is not a single new player out there in the under $350 price point that can match up to this unit. It looks great, is very quiet in operation, and has a build quality that is pretty outstanding at this price point.

It looks like CD player

voycieck, ABT Electronics
9 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Listen to CD's and it sounds great on my vaccuum tube stereo. Very simple and easy to operate. Headphone volume is a bit low and extra 3 dB would help. Overal, it is very good and nicely build product.
  • Pros: Doesn't Skip, Durable, Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
  • Cons: None

Excellent value

Adorama
25 March 2014
  • 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.
