CD Players Buyer’s Guide

If you keep the before points in mind, you can easily go out to the market and buy cd players, right? No!

Onkyo C-7030

If you want a CD player that delivers good sound at a hard-to-resist price, the Onkyo C-7030 is your best bet. Reviewers say its sound is detailed and well-balanced, and the player doesn’t produce a lot of mechanical noise to get in the way. It can play all basic disc formats, though it doesn’t have the USB input found on the pricier Marantz CD600It also has easy-to-use controls, a remote, and a one-year warranty.

Oppo UDP-205

The Oppo UDP-20is a universal disc player that truly does it all – and does it well. It can play just about any disc you throw at it, including UHD (4K) Blu-rays and audiophile discs such as SACD and DVD-A. It can also play back files from a computer through its USB connection, and file format support is comprehensive. Reviewers say that the video performance is outstanding, the sound performance is audiophile grade, and the build quality is substantial.

Onkyo DX-C390

The Onkyo DX-C390 gives you just what you want from a CD changer: good sound quality plus the convenience of long-running play. While most multi-disc players can hold only five CDs, this one takes up to six, keeping the music running longer. It recognizes all basic disc formats and can play them back in numerous modes: one disk, all disks, shuffle, or memory. Owners say it delivers full, clear sound and is easy to operate.

Video Performance

Most DVD players have excellent video performance, if you compare them to the legacy capabilities of a VCR or cable TV. There are, however not-so-subtle differences between players to the trained eye, which should be noticeable enough to prefer one brand over the other (if you don’t know what to look for count yourself blessed!) One common occurrence of some of the 1st generation players was the presence of scan lines and / or black vertical bars faintly present in the background while viewing the DVD. When comparing DVD players, one important video characteristic to note is the deinterlacing capability of the player.

To determine this you can either use a test disc like AVIA or HQV’s Benchmark DVD, or you can queue up movies that have scenes with the following characteristics:

Tightly woven parrallel lines, as in a wide swath of steps or the close-up texture of a knit shirt.

Color accuracy and richness are also important characteristics of video quality. Pay careful attention to the realism of color and how detailed the picture is when switching between different players.

Operational Performance

While almost all DVD players have excellent audio and video performance, some players suffer from various electromechanical problems. There are players on the market that skip or pixelate very easily when the DVD disc is slightly soiled. A great test in determining a DVD players tracking capabilities is to play a DVD soiled in fingerprints on each player and watch for tracking problems. If you come across a problem disc – keep it around – they make for interesting test material.

Appearence

Nowadays, a radio not only has to sound good but it can look good too, enhancing your environment with some serious eye-candy. Recently we’ve seen a rise in the availability and popularity of retro radio cd players, combining classic good looks with a high quality sound, providing the ultimate in music enjoyment.

If that appeals to you, you will be pleased to find that there is a stunning range of classic designs available on the market today. But don’t make the mistake of thinking that a old-fashioned design means lack of quality or choice, these modern-day classics feature everything from radio CD players, to MPcompatibility, USB ports and even bluetooth options.

You have more choice than ever before, so whether you are looking for an ultra modern slimline design or a classic 1950’s rock ’n roll radio, the world is your oyster.

Radio Options

Far from a thing of the past, radio is more popular than ever. Gone are the days where you had to listen to your favourite shows through a mess of static interference, today’s tuners are easy to operate and feature multiple auto-tuner options.

Of course we are no longer limited to local radio stations either, so take some time to think about the music that you want to listen to, maybe it’s an internet only channel? Maybe the station you love to wake up to is available on DAB radio? Or maybe you are just happy with basic AM/FM channels.

Presets

With a wide range of different radio stations, one-click station presets are incredibly useful as it allows you to quickly tune to your favourite stations without searching for them.

Essentially, the more presets a radio CD player has, the more stations you can save for later access. You can spend your precious time listening to music, not trying to find it.

Some CD players have DAB radio, which offers more radio programmes and better quality audio and signal strength.

DAB Radio

DAB radios pick up a digital radio signal, offering you a much higher quality that your usual FM channels, to put it in context, it’s rather like moving from an analogue to a digital tv signal.

Not all radio stations are available on DAB, although there are also some that are DAB only too but this does vary from area to area, so take a few minutes to see if your personal preferences are available.

There’s nothing worse than bringing your shiny new DAB radio home and realising that you can’t connect to your favourite station.

Internet radio offers a fantastically clear sound and connects via your home wifi connection, so while it may trump the rest with quality and a massive choice of radio stations from all over the world, you are limited to where you can use it and it certainly adds quite a lot to the price of the unit.

USB Port

MP3’s are the most widely used digital forms of music available today and many of us love nothing more than the ability to listen our own tunes. Some of the best radio CD players will likely have a USB port. If so, you can pop your songs directly onto a USB stick, plug it in and listen to them.

If you enjoy burning your own music cd’s you should also check the supported formats of any CD player you might be considering, as not all of them, even in today’s market will be compatible with the MPformat.

Wireless Bluetooth

Bluetooth is another little ray-of-sunshine in ever increasing ways to enjoy music. Chances are, if you enjoy your music and you have a smartphone, you’ve played around and connected it to a portable bluetooth device at some time.

Bluetooth connectivity is wireless, it provides the means for your smartphone or tablet to connect and pair with your radio, allowing you to stream your favourite songs, by directing the audio directly to your new bluetooth unit.

Wireless NFC

NFC (near field communication) is another name you may see mentioned. This is quite similar to bluetooth and can offer a much faster connection from one NFC chip-enabled device to another but if you like to wander round the house while belting out your favourite tunes, it’s not for you.

NFC has a very short distance imitation and is often used more for data transfer than playing music.

The best radio cd player on the market will be no good to you at all if you like to lock yourself away from the world and unwind at the end of the day, but find your beloved pair of headphones have nowhere to connect.

Whether you want a closer listening experience or you simply don’t want to disturb anyone else at night, you’d need a 3.5mm headphone jack to plug in your earphones or headphones.

An Auxiliary (AUX) or Line-In port also allows you to connect other audio devices including speakers and amplifiers. Some radio CD players even have two seperate ports for headphones and another audio device.

Clock Radios

This isn’t a term you hear as much of nowadays but there is still no shortage of people that like to wake up to the sounds of their tried and tested breakfast radio presenter and of course, a bedside radio is of little use without a reliable and clear clock face.

Again some units have these and some don’t; whether you want one is down to you but there are many options available, from a traditional ticking time face to a glowing digital display that lights up the entire room.

If you struggle to drag yourself out of bed in the mornings, you might also need one that features a full-blown alarm, loud enough to wake the dead, so have a look around and find one that works for you.

Theres nothing worse than glancing over to see the time and finding it isn’t there and a radio without an alarm may just be your worst nightmare!
