Disc Compatibility: The Onkyo C-7070 single-disc CD player will play
Audio CDs and CD-R/CD-RW discs (12cm/8cm). It will also supports playback of MP3
(32-320kbps; 32/44.1/48 kHz) and WMA (32-192kbps; 32/44.1/48kHz) files recorded onto CD-R/RW discs
in ISO9660 Level 2. The CD player can recognize up to 99 folders and up to 499
files per MP3/WMA disc.
Silent Disc Mechanism w/ Die Cast Tray: 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 precision engineered from
high-rigidity, die-cast aluminum. Thanks to these advanced design features, the
disc mechanism offers smooth and silent operation.
High-Rigidity, Anti-Resonant Chassis: Build quality of the Onkyo C-7070 starts from the ground up with a highly rigid, 1.6mm thick, fully flat chassis
and solid aluminum front-panel that provides excellent protection against shelf-borne vibrations.
Floating Circuit Board Construction: Rather than being directly
connected to the chassis, the main circuit board inside the C-7070 is "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
VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry): In conventional digital-to-analog conversion methods, it's impossible to completely remove noise. This noise taints the analog signal and ultimately degrades the sound emitted from your speakers. With Onkyo's VLSC, though, data is continuously sampled between two discrete points
(via a signal comparison generator) and the difference is joined with analog vectors in real time to produce a smooth output waveform. The VLSC digital-to-analog conversion method results in an accurate, virtually pulse noise-free audio signal that faithfully reproduces the acoustic detail and subtle nuances of all your audio sources, and breathes life into digital media.
Dual Wolfson 24-bit/192kHz DACs: High-quality Wolfson
digital-to-analog converters work to optimize analog audio performance on the
C-7070. The player incorporates two 24-bit/192kHz WM8742 DACs. Although these
DACs can process two-channel audio on a single chip, Onkyo employs separate
chips for each stereo channel, to ensure the most accurate digital-to-analog
DIDRC (Dynamic Intermodulation Distortion Reduction Circuitry): Since
the advent of digital audio, signal-to-noise ratios have improved dramatically.
However, the S/N ratio reflects static noise only, and takes no account of
another type of noise that occurs as the byproduct of sound reproduction;
dynamic noise. To reduce this type of noise, Onkyo has developed DIDRC
technology for use in their hi-fi components. Despite being beyond the normal
range of human hearing, frequencies above 100 kHz are susceptible to clock pulse
and other forms of distortion from digital devices. Such distortion in the
super-high-frequency range can generate "beat interference", which in turn
affects the character of the original sound. By improving linearity and reducing
distortion in the super-high-frequency range, Onkyo's DIDRC technology
effectively reduces perceptible noise and delivers clearer audio.
Precision Clock (+/-10ppm): The C-7070 boasts a precise clocking mechanism that controls and coordinates the timing of all digital signal processes
(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.
Custom-Designed Massive EI Transformer: Powering the CD Player, is a
massive, custom-built transformer that provides a clean and stable power supply.
Front-Panel LCD: The Onkyo C-7070 features a front-panel LCD which can
display the following disc information - Time Elapsed/Remaining, File/Folder
Name, Song Title, Artist Name, Album Name, and Sampling-/Bit-rate. You can
adjust the brightness of the display from Normal, Dim, Dimmer.
Remote Control: The Onkyo C-7070 single-disc CD player includes an IR
remote control for wireless operation of the player and basic playback functions
of a connected USB memory device or Apple iPod/iPhone. There are also basic playback controls
located on the player's front-panel.
Direct Track Access: The numeric keypad (0-9, >10) of the remote
control can be used to directly access a track or file on a disc.
File/Folder Mode: During MP3/WMA playback, you can choose to search
for files (songs) within a folder or on an entire disc.
25-Track Memory Playback: You can create a playlist of up to 25
tracks/files per disc.
Random Playback: In Random playback mode, all of the files on a disc
are played back in random order.
Repeat Playback: In Repeat playback mode, you can playback an entire
disc repeatedly, play one track/file repeatedly, combine it with memory playback
to play a playlist repeatedly, or combine it with random playback to play all
tracks on a disc in random order repeatedly.
Audio Filter: You can select what type of digital filter is applied to
the PCM data prior to D/A conversion for analog input output; this will switch
the response inside and outside the audible bandwidth. You can choose from
Standard (uncolored sound with good overall balance) or Soft (Mellow attack with
Auto Standby Function: If the CD player is left stopped for
approximately 30 minutes, the power will automatically turn off, placing the
unit in Standby mode. If playback is simply pause, the power will remain on even
after 30 minutes have elapsed.
Analog Audio Output: The Onkyo C-7070 single-disc CD player is fitted
with a set of stereo RCA analog audio outputs to connect to your home receiver.
Digital Audio Outputs: The Onkyo C-7070 features two digital audio
outputs; one optical (toslink) and one coaxial (RCA). The player's digital
outputs support 16-bit/44.1kHz PCM (2ch).
1/4" Headphone Jack: The Onkyo CD Player features its own
built-in headphone amp with a front-panel 1/4" headphone jack and independent
volume control. Connecting a set of headphones to the front-panel 1/4" jack does
not mute the player's audio outputs (you will need to turn down the volume
on your receiver).
USB Port (iPod compatible): The unit's front-panel USB
(type-A) port allows you to connect a USB Mass Storage Class (MSC) compliant
device; such as your Android smartphone, portable digital audio player, or USB
thumbdrive. Your USB MSC device must be formatted in FAT16/FAT32 and
contain MP3 (8-320kbps), WMA (5-384kbps), or AAC (8-320kbps) music files; the
unit will recognize up to 499 folders and 499 filers per folder. You can
also use the unit's front-panel USB (type-A) port to connect your Apple
iPod/iPhone. Simply connect your iPod/iPhone to the unit's front-panel USB port
via the cable that comes with your Apple device. The USB port enables audio
playback & control of audio files stored on portable USB memory device or Apple
iPod/iPhone. Basic playback functions include; Play/Pause, File/Folder Search, Fast Forward/Rewind,
Previous/Next Track, and Random/Repeat. Advanced music navigation with Playlist,
Genre, Song, Artist search is available for iPod/iPhone. The CD player will also
display metadata information from your connected USB or Apple device. USB portable audio players and iPod/iPhone
devices that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the unit's
USB port. The Onkyo C-7070 supports the following models of iPod, iPhones, and
iPads (as of 1/8/2013).
