Summary: Beyond my expectations. I am so pleased. I get quality sound at a fraction of what I could have paid. Running this through two channel Sony receiver (old but great) and my Definitive Technology speakers and sub. I did purchase high quality connection cables and so glad I did.
Summary: This CD player is one of the few affordable stand alone CD players on the market these days. Furthermore, it seems to be the only affordable, dedicated single disc player out there. That said, there is nothing cheap feeling about this player.
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.
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.
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.
Great for standard audio CDs and MP3s burned to CD disks

Summary: Elegant design, first-rate audio qualities that allow you to play standard audio CDs that you purchase retail OR burn (record) from your own music files, such as MP3 downloads. A writable CD that you burn (record to) can hold about 135 music files, for hours of non-stop enjoyment on one disk.
CD PLAYER THAT LOOKS AND PLAYS WELL ABOVE THE COMPETITION IN PRICE AND PERFORMANCE! LOOKS LIKE $500.00 +
MARK B., Amazon

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.
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.
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
