Just picked one of these up for the garage system. My old player died so I needed something cheap. I picked up the Onkyo for $159. shipped. Just the price I was looking for. I really didn't want to spend $300 for a cd player. The Onkyo is a nice sounding cd player that easily out performed my Oppo 970 for about the same price. Sure, the Onkyo doesn't do DVD or SACD, but I don't need that for the garage system. If you are looking for a cd player in this price range I can easily recommend the Onkyo 7030. I am very happy this unit was available especially since Oppo is not making $150. units anymore.
