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
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
pure direct mode
no headphone amp that I will never use
not made in China
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.
Summary: Having heard the CD S300 and been quite impressed I decided to do a bit of research online about both the CD S300 and its big brother, the CD S700. Sadly, there's not too much info and not too many reviews out there to shed much light on either product.
Player is great - watch out for dimensions if upgrading existing kit
22 April 2009
Summary: I used the dimensions as listed in the details supplied - but this didn't allow for an extra 2" required at the back of the player to accommodate the power cable and output plugs. Had to do some wood work to my cabinet. Player is excellent however.
Excerpt: En fremragende afspiller til den, der vil have lidt mere end bare en almindelig gennemsnitsafspiller. Og jeg har absolut heller intet at klage over med hensyn til pris og levering fra Elgiganten.
Summary: Ein sehr schöner CD-Player mit hochwertiger Haptik. Eine "Standby"-Funktion sucht man genau so vergeblich, wie die Möglichkeit, den Titel des gerade laufenden Titels im Display zu lesen. Aber diesen Humbug brauche ich auch nicht.
Summary: Auf Grund der nicht sonderlich guten Bewertungen, habe ich lange gezögert, den Kauf zu tätigen. Ich bin jetzt froh, diesen CD-Player gekauft zu haben. Hervoragende Qualität, super Sound, einfache Bedienung. Ich würde den Player wieder kaufen. Klare Kaufempfehlung!!!!!
