Yamaha CD-N301 Compact Disc Player – : Brilliant CD player. Brilliant Streamer.

The best upgrade my hifi has ever had. Everything works perfectly, straight out of the box. Cds sound better than ever before, my denon amp sounds better. My elderly eltax speakers have more life in them than i imagined. Spotify premium, with the highest quality music selected produces the best mp3 sound i have heard.

Extremely easy to set up and start using (ethernet in. Extremely easy to set up and start using (ethernet in, digital out to my tv’s soundbar and sub) – i was listening to the vast flac library stored on my nas within minutes, which is exactly what i wanted to do. Only problem is that navigating such a large music library is somewhat cumbersome, as the companion app is a bit slowstill, great piece of kit and i am extremely happy with it.

Absolutely fantastic sound from streaming and the cd player, really smooth sound. Used to use a usb dac from computer but this sounds so much better and so easy to use.

Replacement for my nad and the mp3 compatibility is great. Good sound reproduction, very happy with it.

The music detail and sound quality from whatever source is amazing of this player. I bought it primarily for streaming, and it handles spotify brilliantly with an ethernet connection. Build quality is superb, including button/control operation and cd tray movement. The only gripe is the size as the depth is not deep enough to place on a standard amplifier without looking odd. Overall, a truly great purchase.

Yamaha CD-N301 Compact Disc Player – Silver : Very good player but yamaha app is very poor.

I’m really pleased with this. I bought it to replace a 12 year old yamaha cdx-493 which was refusing to play half my cds. Firstly it sounds noticeably a lot better than my old player, which i wasn’t expecting. The cd drawer mechanism is deliciously smooth and quiet. If you close the tray with a gentle push it will begin playback straight away. The uncharacteristically flimsy (for yamaha) ‘select’ button can be used to quickly select a track. Secondly it streams from itunes effortlessly from my imac or phone via its wireless airplay receiver. Simple and terrificthirdly i’m really enjoying stations like radio caroline 259 gold broadcasting at 320kps quality.

If only build quality was as good as the sound quality. . I got this for the internet radio function as well as the cd player. The ( jazz ) radio stations are also searchable by country but you have to go online with a computer to enable bookmarking of stations (strange) but once found they sound terrificbuild quality could be better especially the selector control. I was scared of breaking it off. Thank goodness you can do all of the selecting and entering via the remote control which is very nicely made. I’m really surprised at the lack of sturdiness of the selector control given the robustness of the volume and selector controls on the a-s701 amplifier i got at the same time as this.

It got lost but amazon protected my purchase and guaranteed a super fast redispastch. Would suggest such a device to listen to clasical music mostly. . As i think it lacks some brio in some passages of pop & rock music or in general faster music.

Konig Portable CD/Radio : Good sound, lovely item.

If you’re looking for something loud or stylish, this is not. This is just a basic player without any levels of playing modes& wish i had returned it. For that price, i thinkit is too expensive.

Have been looking around for a decent stereo for my wife, we were looking for someting small but with great sound. When this system arrived she was so impressed, the sound quality is great for such a small system, the sd and usb slots work really well. Having looked at so many you will go a long way to find a system like this with all the functions for under £100. Once again really impressed with this product and really happy with amazon, best site on the internet.

A bit on the small side but works well.

Konig portable cd/radio with usb port and sd card slot. I bought this because it has usb and sd card slots as i prefer to listen to my music this way. Good wee machine though personally i would have preferred a bit more volume but other than that i’m happy with my purchase.

A tad complicated instructions. I bought this to use for dance classes but still can’t figure out how to use the sd card slot and the remote control is not the most efficient. Good sound though and for a players size puts out a fair bit of volume.

Great little piece of kit. . I bought this for my wife to replace a much larger, multi disc unit in which the cd player failed. My wife loves the size, design and performance. It looks really neat as it sits on the kitchen counter and she says that it is really easy to operate.

My 4 year old has been using this item. It is simple enough for him to use, sturdy enough to resist clumsy little hands (although i should say that he is very careful with his things for a 4 year old) and provides a very good sound output. We used it in the garden during his birthday party and even outdoor the sound was powerful enough. Really a decent item in this price range, would recommend.

My son was delighted with this, it came quickly and was very well packaged. It was just what he wanted, usually listening to it when i ring him. Thank you for this lovely item.

The only drawback is the power lead which, contrary to eu rules is three-pin instead of two pin required for delivery to spain. . O/w great value for the price.

A bit on the small side but works well.

No complaints with any of the functions. For those using theusb or mp3 to read a book please bear in mind that when switched off there is nobookmark. As usual good service from amazon.

Very nice addition to an establisned hi-fi system. Excellent bit of kit, very easy to set up. Using it on a wired lan so have solid and steady connection for internet radio. The reason i am not giving it 5 stars is due to the rather primitive app needed to use it with remote commands e. You cannot create radio station favourites through the app or directly on the device [using the supplied remote control – you have to create an online account on the radio station portal site and create favourites there. Using this with a iphone 5s to run the app, streaming a lot from amazon music using airplay. I only noticed this model by chance while looking for an internet enabled receiver, pretty expensive items really. ]

Cd player and internet radio tuner in one. . When i decided to purchase this player, i wasn’t really paying attention to it’s networking capability. But it turned to be as important feature as playing discs itself. The internet radio allows me using this player instead of my analog tuner with ease and perfect sound quality. The rotary selector knob allows browsing easily bookmarked stations. Access is almost instant upon it’s press. I am using it with wired ethernet connection and it’s perfrct. The player completes the look of yamaha set along with a-s501 amplifier. I also have t500 tuner but since this player purchase i use it rarely. The player can search and play also any music files in your home network including looseless compression flac files.

. No issues with vinyls either as a penny can be placed on top of the stylus to increase weight.

Looks great and the sound quality from the inbuilt speekers is plenty loud enough. Plays old and new vinyls without a hitch.

Does exactly what it says on the tin, and looks brilliant.

Sound is great comparing to in-box speakers.

In depth review but just wanted to say how happy i am with this. I received this today so very early for an in depth review but just wanted to say how happy i am with this. After reading the reviews i was worried about ordering, but this was the only unit that had all 7 functions so i took a chance. Firstly it arrived one day early so a good start. It sounds really good considering the in built speakers, it takes seconds to switch between records and bluetooth streaming, my new favourite toy :-).

Worried after i read the reviews but couldn’t be happier. I was worried after i read the reviews but couldn’t be happier. Perfect gift, everything working fine and sound is good. I had a very happy boyfriend.

Great sound quality, looks fantastic and can play so many different formats that there’s something for every body and every occasion.

Vinyl, cassettes everything.

I can with great confidence say, having put this product through it’s paces, that it is excellent in all respects. The sound for built in speakers is not bad at all. The record deck is also very good. The radio, which i thought might present problems with reception in my area proved to be perfect. I coiled the aerial wire around a graphite pencil this helped me get more stations on the dial that were free of hiss. Of course the cd and tape worked without problem. The design of the case is not too flashy i think this makes the system look like a quality item and is reminiscent of bush,marconi,philips,and pye of the forties and fifties. I should know i was a service engineer in those days and worked on them. The trouble is, because people know what can be achieved they expect the very best forgetting in the process that to obtain the best you have to spend a lot of money.

Onkyo d-c390s 6 disc cd changer and tuner/receiver in silver. . I’ve been looking for a multi disc player for ages and had near given up hope. It all seems to be one disc only which doesn’t in my opinion give you the choice and selection to play what you want. I knew that if i wanted something that would play more than one disc i would go back to the separate idea of having a tuner/receiver, cd player, etc. So that was my plan, finding was actually more difficult. I had been so used to sony but their range has narrowed in fact i have found that in general if you want listen to your music it’s all about the i docking system this and that. Well that’s alright but a lot of outlets solely cater for just that. Not very open market choice orientated is it?. But finally i managed to find a set, because i needed a tuner/receiver as well as the multi cd player, and i’ve been able to used my wharfdale speakers for the first time. Absolutely wonderful, i’m chuffed to bits, the range in what i can play is there, the ability to tune my bass, treble with a bit more precision is there.

Disappointing pre-christmas experience. Having had an onkyo hi-fi cassette player in the past this seemed a good choice to replace a panasonic sa-pm28 5 cd player that had been an excellent servant and which had begun to show signs of malfunction. Multi-cd disc players seem hard to find these days and the onkyo looked an impressive bit of kit once taken out of its box; sadly it did not live up to first impressions and would not perform when set-up and connected to my hi-fi system. The unit failed to recognize any discs that were placed in its carousel and because of that it would not play. Item return to supplier under complaint with the agreement of a replacement just prior to christmas. This morning, 29th december, they have told me they have no further stock. Surely they knew the state of their stock when offering to replace it. Not impressed and wondering what to do next.

I bought this for my disabled mother so she wouldn’t have to keep getting up to change the cd, she loves it.

Onkyo DX-C390S 6 Disc CD Changer – Silver : Works well and i think a good buy.

I’ve been using this player for half a year now and must say i’m pretty satisfied. Sound is good, changing discs isn’t nearly as loud as some reviews led me to believe, and well, it simply does its job very well. As with all electronic devices, there are some minor quibbles that could be addressed, see for yourself how relevant they are to you. * biggest criticism is one time the disc changer failed and a cd got stuck inside the machine, forcing me to screw the thing open. However: it happened just once, and it occurred with a cd-r which had a cheap sort of label/sticker stuck onto it. Never any problem occurred with ‘proper’ cd’s or cd-r’s without such label-thingies on top of them. * the device screen doesn’t display how many tracks there are on a disc – so the machine doesn’t tell you how long before the cd is over. * it isn’t the fastest cd-reader on the planet; takes a few seconds before playback begins. Not nearly long enough to bother me though. * obviously, the 6-disc changer is physically deeper than most regular receivers/amplifiers/cd/tape-players, which means you need space or stereo furniture with appropriate dimensions. It measures about the same surface as my turntable and could theoretically fit underneath it. * there’s a typical, small red light when the machine is in stand-by mode.

I’ve had this for over six months and all is well. Good build quality and good sound reproduction through my old marantz amp. My only (personal) gripe is that the cd-changer won’t play continuously when new discs are inserted during playback. It stops after six cds have been played.

Nice but poor radio reception. The aerial isn’t up to much so my daughter can’t really get any radio stations at all and she doesn’t have a large cd collection so only giving it 3 unfortunately as it’s a lovely little hifi.

Denon Design Series DCD-50 CD Player – Great space saving and neat-looking compact disc player

Adequate but not huge value for money. . This replaced two successive marantz cd players, the second of which only lasted two years. It’s less powerful than its predecessors and so at high volume the sound is a bit coarser, and i wish i could afford something further up the range. Its design is neat and appealing (and small). So overall: it does the job but is a little lacking in oomph.

Whilst i stream a lot of music these days and i’ve ripped my cd’s to my nas drive to play through my speakers, i still like to play my cd’s but didn’t want to go for a large player. This denon fits the bill well as i use it vertically and has the ‘form factor’ in my living room alongside my amp and tt. Sound quality is excellent and i’m enjoying playing my old cd’s again.

This is another piece of very high quality kit from denon. Build quality is excellent – and the sound, as you’d expect, pretty awesome. Clever design too, with either horizontal or vertical placement possible. I have it paired with a denon pma-50 amp and q acoustics 3020i speakers. And that combination sounds exceptional, especially considering that they are all ‘compact’ components.

Marantz CD6006 CD Player : Easy to work with. Came packaged nice. Highly recommend.

Just replaced my cd player with a marantz cd6006the clarity and sharpness of sound is excellent and so much better than my old cd player. Good in upper and lower frequencies. I haven’t checked out all the features yet, but as i use it mainly to play classical and jazz cd’s i don’t need to programme track sequences or play random tracks, but understand this is all possible. The usb connection for playing music from ipods and smart phones gives an amazing enhancement to the sound. My old cd’s have come to life – i’m a happy bunny.

I’m not an audiophile, therefore i’m not the best person to givean opinion, i can only say that the quality of this player is verygood, obviously there are better cd players, but they costthousands of £. I have a pioneer amplifier (a-209r), a bit old but i can’t complainand castle acoustics speakers (made in england)the quality of the sound is quite good. The only thing they could do better is they could put an ejectbutton on the remote.

The guy who gave this a two star rating is not worth listening to – he is comparing this to an arcam alpha 9 cd player which was about £1200 in its day. This cd player gives a cd player twice its price a run for its money however and i believe it was rated by a top hifi mag here in the uk as being the best buy under £500 last year. I replaced an aging nad cd – then top of the nad range – and it was like a veil had been lifted on my music. It is a piece of very acceptable entry-level hifi kit and i am very pleased with mine and will not be changing it anytime soon as i haven’t got 1000’s of quid for hifi gear. It is useable with cd-rs, no problems. There is a usb connection at the front which accepts mp3, wav (max 16-bit – 🙁 ) plus a couple of other formats (not flac though). It is compatible with iphone and ipod. There is a digital output for anyone with their own dac.

Very havy for cd,makes music not just sound, looks good, plasic in front edge, cd door start no to close and open after 3 weeks and nedd help to close.

I review this in conjuction the marantz pm6006, as i am using the two devices together, which i am playing through tannoy eclipse 3 floorstanding speakers (which i already owned and i am very pleased with. )there is no doubt that, in some ways, the pm6006 and cd6006 represent a step up from the denon dm40 which they are intended to replace. There is greater range and detail and some pieces of music sound fantastic. Synthesizers particularly so. There is something clinical and metallic about their combined sound which suits the synth. Other pieces of music, however, sound strident and lacking in warmth – and hard to listen to, despite attempting to make appropriate adjustments to the tone. And so i am in the strange situation of playing some cds through my denon (which is a third of the price) which is easier on the ear. I know i should have listened to this set up before i handed over my readies, and i urge you to do so, lest you end up in the same position.

Marantz CD6006 CD Player : Quality as always from marantz, heavy, well made and works. A little heavy on the bass and lacks a little lustre in the overall sound (hence the 4 stars not 5) but as i am using a valve amp i can rectify this by swapping out the valves and having a tinker with the innards of the cd player itself helping to put the spark back into this machine. . Overall the marantz spins up quickly and reads discs with no problems so far. I have no real need for the front usb for ipods etc as most of my music is held on a laptop which i play through a cambridge dac magic with amazing results.

Just replaced my cd player with a marantz cd6006the clarity and sharpness of sound is excellent and so much better than my old cd player. Good in upper and lower frequencies. I haven’t checked out all the features yet, but as i use it mainly to play classical and jazz cd’s i don’t need to programme track sequences or play random tracks, but understand this is all possible. The usb connection for playing music from ipods and smart phones gives an amazing enhancement to the sound. My old cd’s have come to life – i’m a happy bunny.

Wonderfully full, sharp sound with all detail evident (didn’t realise quite how much guitar strings squeaked).

This marantz replaced a very aged one the new 6006 is as near perfect as i require the power and definition is superb nothing to fault so very well pleased and the price for a product of this performance is very good value so well done marantz againused the 6006 for a week now and its really superb in every way the definition seems to dig out every detail of a recording but it will show up less good recordings the power and fidelity is astonishing and as fat as looks go its top drawer elegant but robust —.

A solid player – recommended. Only 4 stars is because i still think all manufacturers are making too much profit on cd players. They say the price is paid for sturdy box, quality components and circuitry inside, but this is no groundbreaking new technology, does only 1 job (albeit now with usb input), why does it still cost so much?in summary, if you are in the market for a simple but quality cd player to go with the rest of your system without spending silly money, and the rest of your system/ recording is not extremely high-end to be able to tell much difference, this is it.

For the price this is an amazing amp. Lots of connectivity and good sound output to the right speakers. Returning to vinyl has been a joy with this unit. A good deck plugged into this unit brings alive the sound of vinyl.

Buy with confidence, built to last although sounds a tad thin, still the best sub £500 player available. . No doubt this cd player on paper has a excellent tech spec sheet. I have heard the player but i find it rather thin compared to the original marantz cd6000 series. Signature is stunning, i have had to spend £3000 to get a better sounding player, the marantz cd6000 ose k. Signature really is that good if, you can get a second hand one ”you will be overjoyed” but most people tend to keep them. The cyrus logic chipsets and noise shaping chips in the marantz cd6006 do not do the 6006 any favours by sounding so thin compared to the original philips chipset cd6000 series. The philips chipsets in use in the original 6000 series were perfect from day one and i can never understand why philips pulled out of making dac chips, they really were perfect from day one even if the original 16 bit cds were not. In the cd6006 player you have a very well made machine that in itself sounds more akin to the cd63 series of players from the end of the 1990s, i can only assume this is to brighten up dull recorded cds or mp3 and and other lossy computer files played via the 24bit-192khz usb input at the rear, lets face it a lot of these players will be used to play mp3 files stored on a home pc or on a usb stick or burnt onto blank cd media. If you are looking for a cd player that will last you years that is very well built and looks this good then buy one of these but you will be looking to upgrade as the rather thin sounding chipset gets tiresome, still its the best sub £500 player at the moment.

I used the ultimate hifi test for this player. . I spent ages trying to justify this purchase. I already own a marantz cd50 se and it still sounds pretty good after 28 years service. I have a hearing defect, my hearing is far from perfect unfortunately so i tend to be influenced by what i read in hifi magazines and often go along with their advice and award winning components. After months of deliberation i have taken the plunge. My amplifier developed a fault and i purchased the marantz pm6006. Knowing the cd6006 is a perfect partner for this amp i eventually bought it. I read previous reviews, one of which stated you hear instruments on tracks that you have never heard before. I also find this to be true. Rag n bone man’s ‘skin’ i could hear drum sticks and plucked guitar strings as well as being amazed by the deep silences between rory’s breaths.

I’m not an audiophile, therefore i’m not the best person to givean opinion, i can only say that the quality of this player is verygood, obviously there are better cd players, but they costthousands of £. I have a pioneer amplifier (a-209r), a bit old but i can’t complainand castle acoustics speakers (made in england)the quality of the sound is quite good. The only thing they could do better is they could put an ejectbutton on the remote.

Brilliant – no other choice. Bought the cd player and matching 6006 amplifier to replace an old arcam set, of which the cd player was no longer reading discs. I thought i would replace both cd and amp as i always think that it is better to have matching units which are designed to work together, although in theory there was nothing ‘wrong’ with the arcam amp. I have to say i wish i had ‘upgraded’ soonerthis marantz combination is superb. It ‘feels’ robust and the casings and control knobs have a nice solid feel and finish to them. The remote working both cd and amp is a treat. I know it is not the most expensive ‘fidelity’ you can buy but, quite frankly, i doubt you would get much better than this without paying a huge amount more. Clarity of sound is brilliant, deep base, lots of mid range and crystal clear to range. I use bose acoustimass 5 system and the sound from the marantz is big, big; much more so than from the arcam which seemed a bit ‘thin’ in comparison.

They worked and are beautiful.A perfect item i ever bought. It appears like it will meet our needs well. I couldn’t find another product that with a better quality. Also, i like its price, cheap. Other places are selling for double the price.

Marantz CD5005 CD Player – – Another excellent CD player from

Extremely excellent sounding cd player at a acceptable price.

Very good,close in sound to the cd 6005.

What do you want for £170 just changed arcam alpha 7 which i have experienced because commencing of time even now performing good just required a take care of. New marantz about £400 this is a deal. Can’tell distinction in seem. Substitute arcam about £700 excellent invest in.

Pretty depends on your cd disks recording qualities and stereo audio equipment. Here are the audible variances( sound usually taken from rca audio line out, and hardly ever headphone output )of the marantz cd 6005, vs the different marantz cd 5000 collection versions. Ifone makes use of the stax srs 2170 program on the backs of these cd machines,even with that simple headphone program,one notes that, the 5000series have additional quantity of bass, as wellas decrease midrange, than the 6005. The 6005 loses the bass, and lessen midrange, butit has a lot more treble electrical power,and more resolution throughout all frequencies. Ifone makes use of a 2 channel stereo amp, and spkrs, then all bets are off. Each method will be different. But if you decide on to capitalize the better resolution,and want reality of seem , and audio, then use the cd 6005with a decent 2 channel stereo marantz amp,and stick in the martin logan electromotion esl electrostatic spkrs. Even the 5000series cd will function with these higher resolving spkrs. These are alongside the lines of stax headphones. If a single has time, and fun and revenue,purchase both cd 6005 and a series 5000 machine.

Runs beautifully and very happy with the quality.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great CD player.
  • quite depends on your cd disks recording qualities and stereo audio gear
  • Great player, makes Marantz accessible without compromising on quality

Excellent cd player for the revenue. They say you get what you spend for in this circumstance you get alot of cd player for your funds. . Happy listerning for you buy just one.

Terrific player, can make marantz available devoid of compromising on high quality. Excellent player, makes marantz obtainable without the need of compromising on top quality. The only problem i experienced was two of the command buttons on the entrance panel were stuck and out of motion absolutely with the initially unit i been given. I experienced to get a alternative get, but so much this one is great. The quality of these very little buttons (eject, enjoy, end, etc) on the device is the only detail that does not experience robust and substantial high quality in this unit. If not an excellent selection.

Top quality sound reproduction.

Another fantastic cd player from marantz. No change between the 6005 and5005 except for the usb which i dont consider it matters as the value distinction is almost £100. I strongly endorse the 5005.

Excellent cd player for the revenue. They say you get what you spend for in this circumstance you get alot of cd player for your funds. . Happy listerning for you buy just one.
