Sampling audio signals at a rate 64 times higher than CD, Super Audio CD gives you the closest possible approximation of being in the same room as the musicians. Little wonder, then, that it has established itself as the audiophiles’ format of choice. Now, with the C-S5VL, Onkyo makes quality audio more accessible than ever. The C-S5VL is a stellar playback solution for Super Audio CD—as well as regular CDs and WMA- or MP3-encoded discs—and makes an ideal partner for Onkyo’s slimline A-5VL integrated amplifier. The C-S5VL incorporates Onkyo’s VLSC™ technology, along with high-end Wolfson DACs, to ensure a pristine conversion of the audio signal from digital to analog. Meanwhile, a high-precision crystal oscillator and jitter-cleaner device work together to stabilize the clock frequency. You get meticulous timing for all digital signals and hence beautifully clear separation of musical instruments. So, if you want to get serious about digital audio playback, open your ears to the C-S5VL.

One thing though even though I am very satisfied with the players performance I took a peak inside the player and noticed that some of the capacitors were diferrent from what I had seen in the photos of the interior of the player on amazons listing.I have to wonder if the manufacturer is trying to save some money by substituting some inexpensive capacitors to cut manufacturing costs.I emailed onkyo about the different parts and never received a reply.
That said I am still very satisfied with the performance that the onkyo is giving me.The player is an amazing bargain I have seen some players that have just recently been introduced in 2011/2012 that are use the wolfson 9742 chip and they all are more expensive.This player has been around for at least a couple of years.It is to my knowledge the only player that was using this excellent dac chip.Bravo to onkyo.
Update 2012: My unit purchased in 2010 continues to work well. It is clear however that there was a loss in quality control in subsequent models. Appears production has been discontinued.
Receiver for many years. That Sharp Cd player began to have trouble
playing MP3'S so the search began. The local stores in my area no longer carried CD player's that required a receiver. They had one but I was not impressed with it.
Amazon was the ticket. I don't own any SACD'S but I still gave the Onkyo C-S5VL SACD a try. As this Player also played other formats such as regular CD'S, MP3'S, CDR Disc's as well as the SACD format.
I was extremely impressed with the sound quality I heard. My Cd's
sounded as tho the performances were being played live! I heard sounds that I did'nt even know existed on the discs.
The player was very easy to hook up right out of the box. I found that when I started listening to Cd's I had that I was unable to stop listening for a long time due to the wonderful sound quality that kept me in a musical bliss. Onkyo has produced an excellent product here. For those looking for a new CD Player with excellent sound quality The Onkyo C-S5VL certainly fits the bill.
