Its difficult to imagine how you could improve the humble CD player, but Onkyos engineering team had plenty of inspiration. For 2011, the C-7070 is an extremely versatile and sophisticated piece of audio equipment. The unit is strengthened with vibration-damping machined-brass legs, a 1/16" (1.6 mm) thick flat-base chassis, an aluminum CD tray with silent mechanism, a full-floating circuit board, and a handsome aluminum front panel. In addition, the electrical system benefits from a precision clock, a pair of Wolfson® 192 kHz/24-bit DACs one for each channel?and Onkyos DIDRC (Dynamic Inter-modulation Distortion Reduction Circuitry). These improvements all but eliminate noise from the source, meaning your music will sound clearer than ever. Naturally, the C-7070 plays audio discs or CD-R/CD-RWs and your favorite MP3/WMA compilation CDs. It also connects to your iPod®/iPhone® via the USB port, and plays music straight off a USB thumb drive. The three-stage dimmer function, gold-plated audio terminals, and headphone amplifier differential circuitry offer further evidence of Onkyos attention to detail. All this adds up to a player that, like your CD collection, will be around for a long time to come.Precision Clock
Silent Disc Mechanism With Die-Cast Tray
- The C-7070 boasts a precise clocking mechanism that controls and coordinates the timing of all digital signal processes—rather like how a conductor directs and coordinates the individual instruments of an orchestra. The C-7070 uses a state-of-the-art crystal oscillator that achieves a frequency deviation of ±10 ppm—much lower than with a conventional oscillator.
Floating Circuit Board Construction
- Affixed to four supports made of rigid machined brass, the C-7070’s CD drive provides excellent resistance to internal vibrations. Furthermore, the disc tray is precisionengineered from high-rigidity, die-cast aluminum. Thanks to these advanced design features, the disc mechanism offers smooth and silent operation.
- Rather than being directly connected to the chassis, the main circuit board inside the C-7070 is now “floating” to protect it from sources of vibration. This method of construction prevents vibration from the chassis and CD drive mechanism from adversely affecting the circuit boards or creating signal interference. Which adds up to longer life and cleaner audio.
