Summary: Here's my story. Stick with me. I purchased the Marantz PM6004 amp earlier this year after Marantz discontinued it and the price was lowered. The next step in reacquainting myself with a 2-channel home hi-fi system was to obtain a new cd player. I had already heard that some serious advancements had been made in cd players that went for $500 or less in the last year or two. My first choice would have been to get the discontinued Marantz CD6004.
Summary: Very good quality. Playback of both CD & USB modes excellent. My only complaint is that CD's recorded from the unit to flash drives do not show song, artist & album information of each track. This is a minor inconvenience and is overcome by recording tracks from my computer to the flash drives, then all of the information is there and is displayed when played back on the H750B. This is also a faster method to recording MP3's to the flash drive.
Summary: I was very impressed with the overall quality. Also, love its relatively compact size which fits so nicely on my bedside table. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who was seeking a high quality multi-source player at an amazing price. BUT, I found it totally unacceptable for use with headphones. The sound lacks warmth and depth in the low register. The mid-range and upper ranges are too "bright" and harsh and downright grating to listen to.
Pros: High quality. Nice size. Great controls and remote
Summary: I bought this to use as a transport for both CDs and my iPod. It's great. I'm running it into a Bel Canto C5i with a Nordost Valhalla digital cable. Running it this way outperforms both running its analog out s(via Nordost Heimdall) directly into the Bel Canto and running it into a PS Audio DL3 with Heimdall back to the Bel Canto (still using the Valhalla for the digital out from the CD player mind you).
Summary: I did a side by side comparison of the teac H750 and Marantz 6004 models becauce it was difficult to find many reviews on the teac. The marantz is considered a premium player in many audio file magazines a new model has replace the 6004 its called a 6005 I don't know what the differences are but I judge equipment by its sound and feel and operation and features.
Summary: Well, I have been listening to the Teac CD-H750 I purchased from Amazon for several months. Read the review from Bononon...? That review read like a brochure for high-end audio gear! Geesh, you'd think this CD player should sell for over 2k. Now, some down to earth thoughts. Like my other reviews I just call 'em as I hear 'em. So far, the 750 has functioned without any problems. I haven't owned this piece for very long so I cannot judge it on reliability (yet).
Summary: I bought this TEAC CD player because I wanted a very good CD player and I got a very good CD player. This TEAC is with a Moon Audio 340i amp. so the result is great. I had this unit only for about a month so far very satisfied and I hope it will last. Now like many review I read from specialized Hi Fi magazine its worth the price. Words could never explain how much my CD's sounded better. I highly recommend this TEAC CD-H750B.
For quiet audio quality--this one performs well and attracts no undue attention to itself.

Summary: Near the top of Teac's line of consumer products and below its more costly audiophile equipment is the Reference Series. The CD-H750B (for black) CD Player along with the NP-H750 Integrated Amplifier and Streaming Network Player are two excellent examples of this series. The CD-H750 may be a longer-lasting and better built "transport system" for CDs than some listeners think they need, but it includes a good quality digital-to-analog converter and performs without a...
Summary: This player reveals more detail than my California Audio Lab Aria MKIII! It's not as warm, but it's got more depth and articulation. The CAL sounds muddy by comparison. I'm sure once it burns in, the Teac will sound a little bit less strident and will sound even better. Buy it now while it's on sale, you won't find a better deal under a grand! And with an Audioquest Cinammon USB cable, the iPhone sounds amazing!
Pros: Clarity, depth, big soundstage, iPhone friendly, great price
