Very good sound and easy to operate. Received very promptly
from Presque Isle, Maine
The CD player works well- excellent sound very easy to set and begin to use. The only reason for the 4 stars not 5 was the first unit that was shipped was defective. Fortunately Crutchfield staff was very helpful and immediately sent out the second unit which is working very well.
The best cd player I have owned
An excellent carousel CD changer from Onkyo.
from Los Angeles, CA
At a time when carousel-style CD changers are seemingly becoming something of an "endangered species" in the world of consumer A/V equipment, it's both nice and comforting to see that a company like Onkyo still makes CD changers. To my knowledge, Onkyo is the only manufacturer making a 6-disc CD changer (Denon, Sony, Yamaha and other brands still make 5-disc changers) and it's a company with very good pedigree. The Onkyo DX-C390 is a solidly and sturdily built, elegant-looking CD changer. Its sound quality is just as good (if not better than) the Denon 5-CD changer it replaced. The front panel display is very bright, with the green numbers and characters very easy to read and see at distances where doing so would be impossible with other units that have less bright displays. I also like the fluorescent green "moon" just below the front panel display as this adds an interesting "look" that I've yet to see in another CD changer. While I would not go as far as comparing the Onkyo DX-C390 to high-end single CD players costing three or four times as the DX-C390, I will say that if you are looking for a carousel-style CD changer costing less than $250.00 the DX-C390 is an excellent value for your money--especially when considering just how good its sound quality is.
Onkyo DX -C390
Power goes on without warning. CD player stops playing. changed Disc to see if problem not a chance. This unit has a design defect. No one should buy this brand. Others have reported this problem too. I only had unit 3 years with not playing it that often.
