  • Excerpt: After going back to vinyl for that better analog sound, I deceided to check out some of the newer DACs. After reading around, came to the conclsuion that a newer, upgraded CD player might help. Chose the Onkyo C7070 from various reviews and specialist sites. Seemed like the best value in the price range. did not want to spend $5K!!!Very pleased with the sound. Makes our old CD collection come alive again.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Doesn't Skip, Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound, Sound Quality, Usb Port
  • Cons: None

STUNNING CD PLAYBACK PARALLELS VINYL LPs

INROCK, B&H Photo
13 November 2013
  • Excerpt: In a word, I find commercial Redbook CD playback on the Onkyo C-7070 "stunning". Using both Axiom M80 tower speakers and Sennheiser HD 448 headphones, rock, pop, show tune, and instrumental selections are clear, accurate and very musical. Playback using "direct" setting parallels warmth of my first love, vinyl LPs, which allows me to hear the music as the artist and recording engineer intended.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Durable, Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound

Better than the CD 7030

Walter B, Crutchfield
31 July 2013
  • Summary: The C- 7070 was an improvement over my CD7030 on the top end of the music, it opened up well with little if any distortion but it took some of the base away which I liked with the C-7030 to me it was no gain on my stereo system, others may have different results, hope so. I sent the C-7070 back to Crutchfield, tried a Marantz CD 6004 played which worked out a lot better in my system.
  • Pros: Well built, was quite, mechanically sound, good remote.
  • Cons: Not as musical in my system as I had hoped.

STUNNING CD PLAYBACK PARALLELING VINYL LP QUALITIES

INROCK, Crutchfield
22 March 2013
  • Summary: In a word, commercial Redbook CD playback on the Onkyo C-7070 is "stunning". Using both Axiom M80 tower speakers and Sennheiser HD 448 headphones, rock, pop, show tune, and instrumental selections are clear, accurate and very musical. Playback using "direct" setting parallels warmth of my first love, vinyl LPs, which allows me to hear the music as the artist and recording engineer intended.
  • Pros: Clear, accurate and very musical; USB port plays WMA files and is NOT confined to Apple/I-POD construct. Heavy duty build; Intuitive controls; Whisper quiet transport. Digital status display is clear and large, with 3 brightness settings. Teamed with Onkyo A-9070 amplifier, RCA connected analog, coaxial, or TOSLINK all produce breathtaking CD results -- even for "first generation" commercial discs!
  • Cons: If you have been prone to abusing your CDs, resulting in scratches, mars, unidentified sticky substances, and smudges on the playing surface, this unit may not be your best choice. For me, I have little problem with the C-7070's penchant for cleanliness. Based on the C-7070 Instruction Manual warnings and my experience in playing some previously owned CDs, be forewarned that the unit may balk at errant particles on the shiny surface.

Onkyo 7070

Mark M., Crutchfield
15 March 2013
  • Summary: The Onkyo 7070 delivers clear quiet sound to head phones on its own or speakers through an amp. I was amazed at how realistic the voices sound and all the instruments. I played a badly scratched cd on it before I bought a new one and I couldn't tell the difference. Solid unit, well built,and should last a long time. Mine was open box and to me it looked and played like new.
  • Pros: Solid unit, well built, and delivers as promised.
  • Cons: none at this time.

If you love music,this player's for you.

  • Excerpt: You can easily tell where the extra money goes into this mammoth cd player. I was skepitcal myself, until I popped in a disc. You will hear sounds you will never hear on other players. If Onkyo could make this in a six disc changer, it would be perfect, but overall a great buy.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Durable, Great Sound

C-7070 is what Onkyo say it is

  • Excerpt: The C-7070 has very good sounding DACs that good for quality sounding speakers and headphones listening. The unit USB link add to how you can play your favorite music sources like Apple I devices or USBs. I like using my iPod on this player, MP3s running into its quality DACs give it a good CD quality sound.

Veelzijdige CD speler

F.C. Boddeman, foka.nl
25 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Vorig jaar kocht ik een Onkyo receiver en blu-ray speler BD-SP809 die ook audio CD’s kan afspelen. Echter als CD speler schoot de BD-SP809 ernstig tekort. Niet voor wat betreft de geluidskwaliteit, maar vanwege het ontbreken van een goede displayfunctie op de speler zelf. Het opzoeken van een track of het skippen gebeurt volledig ‘in the blind’ tenzij je de op de receiver aangesloten televisie inschakelt. Maar dat zou voor het afspelen van een CD niet nodig moeten zijn.

Das zweite Gerät war ok

Wolfgang B., HIFI-REGLER
1 June 2013
  • Summary: Ich haben einen uralten Onkyo Verstärker und Tuner, an denen ich aus emotionalen Gründen hänge. Da der ebenfalls uralte Onkyo-CD-Player nach 20 Jahren den Dienst verweigerte (kann man wohl nicht meckern), sollte es wieder ein Onkyo CD-Player sein. Die Wartezeit bei Hifi-Regler auf den ersten Onkyo C 7070 war mit mehreren Wochen zu lang. Das erste Gerät kam dann defekt an (CDs wurden nicht erkannt). Es wurde von Hifi-Regler aber anstandslos und schnell ausgetauscht.

Wenn er jetzt noch lange hält, ist alles prima!

Christian B., HIFI-REGLER
25 May 2013
  • Summary: Anfangs war ich etwas skeptisch, da der CD-Player fast mehr nach Computer als nach CD Player aussah (USB, MP3). Nach einigen Tagen bin ich bis jetzt sehr zufrieden: Gerät ist einwandfrei verarbeitet und macht einen sehr guten und wertigen Eindruck, nur die Fernbedienung dürfte etwas nobler sein. Keinerlei Brummgeräusche, sehr leises Laufwerk sowohl im Betrieb als auch auf Pause und eine solide wirkende Schublade. Und der Klang? Hervorragend.
