It blew my mind!

dlipscombe, Ebay
9 July 2013
  • Summary: I am very very happy with my Yamaha Natural Sound CD player. I can't believe the difference between the sound of my old CD player and the new one. A huge difference! I listened to a song that I knew well on my old CD player and then played it on the CD-S700.

Wow, What a Player!

GlenT, Crutchfield
28 March 2013
  • Summary: The title above says it all. I have been an audiophile for over 20 years, and this is the best player I have owned--and I have had many. The build quality is superb: a very quiet transport, no goofy "bells and whistles" (except for the USB connection I will never use), solid, well-spaced output...
  • Pros: reasonable price very solid build excellent sound quality detachable power cable display dimmer pure direct mode no headphone amp that I will never use not made in China
  • Cons: none

OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE

Prime_o_life, Crutchfield
9 March 2012
  • Summary: I am stunned by the quality of the sound this unit produces when playing regular cds. I run this through an Anthem 225 amp attached to 2 MartinLogan Motion 12 speakers. This is my first high end cd player, and it's been a real eye-opening experience (maybe it's not even considered a high end player,...
  • Pros: The separation of instruments and imaging is outstanding. It rivals the performance of my pro-ject turntable, and that's saying something.
  • Cons: none whatsoever

excellent machine--but----

Paul M, Crutchfield
9 July 2009
  • Summary: I hate to undermine the previous reviewers, but I can't say I'm as impressed as they are. It works fine, but it is not three times better than $300 Marantz I was using, nor the Sony ES machine this replaces. The Sony had an "index" feature that I miss.
  • Pros: Very quiet and uncluttered.
  • Cons: Probably more expensivethan should be.

Gary D., Crutchfield
9 July 2009
  • Summary: The Yamaha CD-700 has outstanding sound. The disk tray is quiet, no noise what so ever. The PURE DIRECT mode eliminates any internal interference and is a nice feature. I also like the USB port for connecting a memory stick to play my mp3 music.
  • Pros: Excellent sound and features. Quality constuction
  • Cons: Expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Quality product from a quality company

Mr. C., Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this from Amazon over 12 months ago together with a Yamaha RS700 amplifier with built-in tuner (also from Amazon but not available from amazon.co.uk). The sound, while not overly exciting, is clean, natural and with sufficient detail.

cds-700 cd player

C. P "the samba man", Amazon
28 December 2009
  • Summary: This player has a natural sound and is great for classical and acoustic based music.Vocals are upfront and expressive especially with the likes of Diana Krall.Some of the hifi mags say its not a good long term listen,with a warmish sounding amp (ie the rotel rao4)it sounds great.

Never mind the slick CD drawer listen to the sound

Jurusz, Amazon
28 December 2009
  • Summary: I think the slick opening of the CD drawer is a little over-rated and it is just as well to remember that this unit is designed for European ears rather than those of elsewhere, as another reviewer pointed out.
