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.

One, the player is extremely sensitive to floor vibrations. True, we have old wooden floors in our house, but our Blurry player right next to it and the Cambridge Audio player that it replaced had no issues with it. But the Onkyo skips if you just walk past it. I have placed in on vibration dampening pads, but there are still issues
Two, the player takes extremely long to get started up if you turn on the power. It feels like an eternity until you can open the disk drawer, and then another lifetime until the CD starts to play (time units are subjective). I am seriously considering getting another player just because of these annoyances
I called Onyko to place a warranty claim a process which which entailed a long wait. First, the number given in the product manual was wrong. Then, in order to get the unit repaired, I had to take to a center -- a horrible 1 1/2 hour killer traffic drive away -- or send it there at my expense, about $30 - $35 and the hassle. It goes to a place called Norm's in Duluth (Atlanta), Georgia, who take forever to fix anything based on two past experiences.
I don't see why I should pay anything to fix a defective player still under warranty and be without it for months.

Into the trash it goes.
Priced at $180 it's by far the best cost Vs. performance deals that you will ever come across.
This player can handle ( . Flac files -Wav files-MP3 files- and regular CDs ) It's a newer design than the Yamaha S-300 and yet cost $120 less. With a 11.7 LB weight it's built really well. It's center mounted transport is well above average for such a low cost player.
Has a nice aluminum front panel with a ergonomic button layout that's easy to get used to and a nice brushed aluminum remote control.
With the Wolfson DAC this Onkyo player has the same DAC as many of the $500 and up players being sold. It's power transformer is
huge and adds to the weight and sound playback of this excellent sounding player.
Sure there are better CD players on the market but at the $180 price point this sells at it's worth a listen as it compares with the other Wolfson DAC players like the Cambridge Audio 640c V2 that retails for about $600.
I had a issue with quality control as I received several defective players in a row that needed to be sent back to Amazon but the returns cost me nothing and I finally got a working player. From what I could tell A****** received some bad units mixed within a few pallets, which was not A***** fault.
I also had a laser failure after 3 years of using this player almost everyday. So I spent $60 to buy a entirely new transport that included a new laser and the player now works like new again. Probably not on Onkyo as lasers usually last over 20 years.
As far as I'm concerned your better of buying a player like this brand new than a used NAD or Cambridge Audio player from 2000 or 2005
Technology has been improving and since CD players are based on good modern electronics buying a new one is always in your best interest.
I recently had my Onkyo C-7030 converted into a CD player with a twin tube buffer with a X10-D Music Fidelity clone for $170.
It has the buffer added into the main enclosure that's nice and roomy for the extra board and transformer. See Photo's
Absolutely incredible sound from this low cost CD player!
So now my Onkyo C-7030 is a C-7030 T and wow what a difference in it's sound output!
So for those looking for a expensive tube buffered Cd player this one can easily be modified by someone that really knows his electronics.
At this players current price point of $180 the up-grade for most people would cost about $300. So for under $500 you can own a Tube Buffer Cd player which is a great price
Just go on Ebay and look up Tube Buffer Cd players and you will see how expensive they all are. Even the Carver Tube Buffer player from 1990 still sells for $750 or more.
Great sounding player that's built like a tank and has plenty of internal room for the tube buffer up-grade.
Woflson DAC- .flac file capable, .wav file capable and MP3 capable with any CD-R media that's burnt to properly.
I used Winamp's freeware to take downloaded .flac and reconvert them to new .flac or .wav in the 16 bit 44.1k Redbook standard and they worked perfectly
This Onkyo is a very good CD only player that can handle every type of music file you can ask minus SA-CDs. So for $200 or less it's the best CD player I have heard and it has the specs to back that up.
Specs are not super important but the basic specs should all be nearly the same with CD players below the $500 barrier.
This players specs:
S.T.N.R. at 106 DB, D.R. 100 DB, T.H.D. .0028% overall frequency response of + or - .25 DB 20 to 20.
To use as comparison: The 2 Teac players sold below the price of the Onkyo both have the same specs:
S.T.N.R. at 100 DB, D.R. 96 DB, T.H.D. .003%, and most importantly + or - (2 DB), Yes a full 2 DB from 20/20. This huge amount of play across the audible frequency range is more what you would expect from a good pair of speakers, and not from a source input CD player.
I'm not a Teac hater, but there 2 cheapest players sold here have this horrible range during playback that cam actually be heard!
