Product Description

For music lovers who enjoy the tangible experience of playing a physical format, the CD retains its enduring appeal. The pleasure comes not just from browsing a collection of discs and reading the liner notes. It also comes from enjoying your music in superior fidelity. By combining high-quality components and decades of Onkyo audio know-how, the C-7030 CD player delivers a superb playback experience. The key lies in keeping the audio signal clean and free from interference, all the way to the output stage. To achieve this, we employ a new high-precision clock to dramatically reduce timing errors, along with our original VLSC to reduce pulse noise. Driving the system is a massive, custom-built transformer that provides a clean and stable power supply. Given how affordable the C-7030 is, build quality is exceptional. A 1/16? (1.6 mm)-thick flat chassis base helps reduce unwanted vibrations, while the sleek aluminum front panel provides an elegant finish.

I found nary a decent review on this model... in fact the ONLY thing I found on the c7030 was the same regurgitated marketing copy re-pasted on differant websites. Annoying. One thing that stood out about this unit's specs besides its budget pricetag was its weight. To me that meant a decent power supply and good build quality (it is fairly heavy for a cd player). So because of this, along with its other intersting features (for the price) I decided to order it.

Connected to my budget HK3490 it has an unbudget sound. Clear highs. Smooth mids. Tight bass. Realistic soundstage. Uncolored. Listening to Nora Jones as I write this and she sounds like shes in the room with me. I initially had my sights on the HD990 to match my receiver but they recently upped the price on that unit and I was left with the distinct impression that there were skipping/build quality issues from some reviews despite the audiophile sound quality specified in most reviews.

Aesthetically, the c7030 looks more expensive that it is. In fact, I could mistaken this cd player for something built by Arcam, and the remote looks like something made by B&O. Good tactile feel for buttons on both the player and remote. What more can I say? Another for-the-price-it-cant-be-beat purchase.

I was looking for a quality single drawer cd player and ran across the C-7030. Simple controls, single play drawer, sounds great and reasonably priced. I now hear background music and vocals on cd's I've had for years that I hadn't heard before. This cd player looks great, is simple to use and is great addition to my system. Having used a DVD player for years to play my cd's I can safely say a dedicated cd player is worth investing in.

I'm an amateur audiophile and have listened to many (many) CD players of all stripes. I know what music is supposed to sound like and I've never thought that CDs did a good job of recreating the musical experience. My primary rig is a dedicated Rotel transport with a Musical Fidelity A3-24 DAC (not a cheap combo) with JPSLabs wiring, etc. Even with that setup, I still thought my system sounded better via my modest VPI turntable. Well, that was until I took a listen to this inexpensive Onkyo unit to replace a secondary CD player. Onkyo has nailed it: Spacious, sparking highs without any "tizzy" stuff, incredible low-level detail; real bass; unit is absolutely quiet. Hey, this sounds like music! I hear that Onkyo is coming out with a much higher-end C-7070 dedicated CD player (prob $700), but for $200, this unit is an amazing bargain. I'm listening to the Onkyo directly through the headphone jack and, as said, I'm blown away. BTW, you'll need at least 48 hrs of continuous playing to break in the unit (put a CD on repeat and leave it running). I suppose it's possible the unit will sound different via the rear audio outs...I'll find out soon and will report back (but I'm assuming the same audio signal that's reaching my headphones will also be output via the audio outs).

What are the downsides? Well, the tray looks / sounds cheap when it opens/closes. On the black units, the front-plate lettering is really subtle and you need lots of light to see which button you are pressing. However, the remote is very clearly labeled and doesn't have any legibility issues. No HDCD decoding.

Upsides: Incredible audible experience. Fatigue-free listening. Solid unit (and not too huge either). Nice headphone jack (but you'll need an efficient set of "cans" to enjoy). Display dims. Flexible audio outputs.

Get one before they're sold out or Onkyo realizes they have underpriced this unit and either changes something or reprices.

Managed to snare a unit of this hard-to-get player!

Connected to my HK 3490 receiver using digital coax with no problem whatsoever.

#1 impression of the unit is silence. Silent operation. No background noise. Blessed quiet.

Quality of reproduction is excellent. Piano sounds like piano. Horns like horns. Voices totally nuanced.

Before making this purchase, I considered cd players in all price ranges. Made this selection after digesting the reviews here and elsewhere.

It was totally the right choice.

This unit replaces a 12-or-so year old Kenwood 5-disk changer. It is a wonderful upgrade and is bringing me back to my cd collection big time.

So far, Ive been listening to vocal jazz (Ella, Etta, Dinah, Sarah, Nancy, Peggy, Norah); Elton Johns #1s; western swing. Moving next to classics and soul.

The unit brings out the sensuality of great music.

But one idiosyncrasy uncovered.

My unit must be powered down -- unplugged from the wall after use -- or else when turned on again it will not recognize a disk has been placed in the tray. It's like it has to reboot. Turning off the on-off button on the unit or remote is not enough. Unless it is unplugged, it sends a "no disk" message when a disk is placed in the tray upon restart. That's weird. I'm working with Onkyo tech service to see whether they can reproduce the problem. Could be a firmware problem -- could be isolated for some reason to my player.

So for now, until this is solved (and not for performance reasons which are brilliant), it goes to ***.

Highly highly recommended except for the glitch.

**UPDATE** Onkyo contacted me and said my unit is defective and should be returned to my seller. Major Bummer! No inventory around to replace it. Will have to wait.
