Excerpt: I moved last year and finally unpacked my CD's and bought this CD player to go with a Yamaha receiver. My funds were limited so I couldn't afford a higher end player. I chose this one based on price and reviews (tech and customers). Very happy with it! Very simple set up, Great Sound!
Pros: Attractive Design, Doesn't Skip, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
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).
Summary: I have had the player for about 3 weeks now. Really enjoy that it plays my MP3 CDs and has no trouble reading them. The sound quality from this player is great. Love all the functions, easy to use remote and the simplicity of the player. Great quality CD player for the price.
Pros: Plays MP3 CDs no problem, great sound quality, great price and seems to be very well built.
Summary: An ear doctor was quite astounded by my hearing one time.if there's something bad in music I hear it and this unit is clean.close to pristine I'd say.wow what a difference from my old junk.signal to noise is excellent.clarity is awesome.bass is flawless.quite pleased.thank you onkyo for not selling...
Summary: I bought this to replace my old single-CD Sony unit from 1989. It appears to play whatever I throw at it, whether store-bought CDs, CD-Rs (recorded by me), or MP3 CDs. Does a good job, far better than the cheaper Teac CD-P1260 unit I previously bought from Amazon that refused to play any of my...
Great player for the money, but quality control is questionable.

Summary: I had to re-write this review and give everyone the straight facts about this player and all I have been through to get a working unit. First off I'll tell you the positive aspects of this player. Of course the price is outstanding at $179 with a retail price of $250.
Summary: As the owner of a sizeable CD collection, and having witnessed the slow demise of a Kenwood 5 disc player, which was older than I can remember, I needed a replacement. I liked the description and reviews on the Crutchfield website of the Onkyo C-7030 single disc player, and as I was already using an...
Pros: Quality unit, immediately synched with my Onkyo receiver. The quality of the sound reproduction was well worth the trade off of a multi disc player.
Cons: Trivial lack of a full disc "read" display of all tracks and count down features as noted in other reviews.
Summary: Great single disc player for the price! Use mine in a home office setting, so perfect if like me you are looking to use with just headphones as it has a phones level/volume control just for the phones jack - no need for a receiver.
Summary: The days of the mp3 have come... and passed. Remind me why we decided that lower sound-quality was better? Yes, the file size is smaller. But if you're paying for your music that shouldn't matter (it might but it shouldn't).
Pros: Excellent sound reproduction without having to spend thousands.
Cons: I'm sure it could be better, but is it worth the extra thousands of dollars?
