Onkyo's DX-C390 offers an unbeatable combination of audiophile construction, playback versatility, and great convenience features. With exclusive Onkyo technologies like the AccuPulse Quartz System and Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry, the 'C390 virtually eliminates vibration-induced jitter and stray pulse noise. The ear-pleasing result is better stereo imaging, tighter bass, and cleaner sound from all your CDs. The brushed aluminum front panel and anti-resonant chassis serve as further assurance of rock-solid performance.
The 'C390 not only plays regular CDs, but also your home-burned CD-Rs and CD-RWs, and even long-playing MP3 discs! This changer also sports a unique 6-disc carousel design that lets you change five discs while the sixth keeps playing. Next Selection lets you "cue up" the next song you want to hear without interrupting the song that's currently playing. And the remote gives you easy control of your music from across the room — its direct disc and track access lets you quickly locate exactly the track you want to hear.

Excellent and as described. No problems with cds so far... long term use will determine true quality.... only had a week or so at time of this review...
Works as expected, but takes 15 sec, to switch discs.
Simple to operate yet full featured! Flawless operation and great audio. As usual customer service was top notch!! Thanks again Crutchfield.
5 Stars for Onkyo - 6 Stars for Crutchfield :-) The Onkyo DX-C390 appears to be well built, feels good from weight and stability. While moving through the carousel, the unit is pretty quiet and shouldn't be a disturbance to a relaxing evening of listening. Sound quality using the digital output is better than my ears can hear. Analog outputs were not tested. The only drawback to this unit that I can see is the lack of a headphone jack - this shouldn't be a big deal because most people have this connected to a reciever which should provide a headphone resource.
Pros: Build Quality Sound Quality
Cons: No Headphone Jack
CD changer works like a dream an sounds great. Very easy setup. Will not be disappointed.
Pros: Great dollar value! Works flawlessly. Easy setup.
It's a cheap disc changer that hasn't given me any issues after 3 weeks of heavy use. Considering there aren't many options out there for a multi disc changer for a decent price, you really can't go wrong with this one.
Pros: Cheap. Can cycle all discs with tray open and cd playing.
This CD player was precisely what I was looking for. Easy to set up. And the sound is great.
I am very pleased with the product. I own a five disc that has a mind of it's own. Purchasing this 6 disc CD changer is a life changing experience. It offers much more than expected.
Pros: Easy to set up, great sound. Able to play CD' s immediately.
Cons: Larger than standard size. Takes a while to learn how to navigate the system.
Real nice cd player, easy to use, nice lighting, great feature as you can change CD's and keep playing
Pros: easy to use, great lighting
Cons: pretty big unit
The product arrived a day earlier than we expected (Hooray) and the product is exactly what we hoped it would be. Enjoying playing 6 discs now instead of four. It was a pleasure doing business with Crutchfield.
Very happy with the quality of music I am hearing. Having the possibility of 6 CD's for continuous sound is great! Highly recommend!
Pros: Holds 6 CD's Continuous Sound Random Option Works great with an older Onkyo receiver
Cons: Check size if you have a stereo cabinet, little larger than my last CD player, mine just fit!
Does all I needed and more
fantastic. I like that you can load 6 cds. Also you can change 5 cds while playing one.
Would diffinately buy again. Great CD changer.
Pros: Great sound. Easy to operate.
Cons: Cd's sometimes slide out of place if player rerepositioned
Great price for quality unit.
It plays CDR's which was a must for me. It's easy to operate and does the job. Great product and Crutchfield is a great company.
Easy to order. Fast, free shipping delivery. Only had the CD player for a week, but the setup, easy to follow instructions and the sound quality meet and/or exceed my expectations.
Call me old fashion, but I still like to have my CDs. This CD player allows me to load six discs and listen to hours of music. The sound quality is very good and I would certainly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a CD only player.
Pros: Great sound and large capacity.
Used just a few times, but Onkyo has always been a great product line for me. I love being able to play 6 disks rather than one.
Pros: holds 6 CDs
I got this about 2 weeks ago. I love it so far
Thank you for great and fast service and expertise, Cody was very helpful. My son turned me to Crutchfield "singing " only superlatives about company. It's working well with my old entertainment unit, my old Yamaha changer quit.
Very well pleased. Sounds better than old Sony CD player. Very fast shipping .
Replaced an 18 year old Sony 6 disc turntable CD player with the Onkyo. Both had about the same features, the Sony had more on the remote though. The laser in the Sony may have been dirty or something but it really seems as if the Onkyo's sound is crisper and richer. I think the price was really good. I saw the same item on a web sit close to the same price but I have purchased electronics from them before and I really think that theirs was refurbished. No problem like that with Cruthfield. So far very happy.
Surprised it was delivered one day earlier than promised in excellent condition. Great service and great price from Crutchfield. Easy setup with optical digital cable to Yamaha amp and easy to use. Met my expectations and would buy again.
Pros: 6 CD changer
Cons: After turn on, doesn't resume where it played last track. Plays from first track.
As Advertised......Just Great
I've only had this CD changer for a few weeks, but so far, so good! The service at Crutchfield was second to none. Thanks
Pros: Easy to set up and operate; attractive unit (we like the green light); has worked perfectly; very good sound; quiet disc changing mechanism; flexible; works well on "random." Cons: Very deep in dimensions - may need to alter your arrangement of components; linked-in "RI" remote function does not work with our Onkyo TX-8511 stereo receiver; otherwise, none so far.
Nice but huge. May not fit on a normal shelf.
This replaces my 23 year old Onkyo CD player that served up thousands of rounds of flawless play. The new player has the same simple and smooth operation, quiet mechanicals, and clear sound reproduction with a noticeable upgrade in sleek cabinetry.
Pros: Attractive appearance, simple set up and operation, crisp and clear sound production, 6-disc convenience
We like it, it's just kind of big.... doesn't really fit in the entertainment center. Check the specs before ordering...
AS described and it works well. Better than my broken Sony. Shipment arrived quicker than promised
Very good CD player and the only multi disk player I found on the site. It is very basic with no frills but that's what I was looking for. I'm setting up my first ever stereo system (analog and digital) and don't have thousands to spend. I'm doing this on a budget and everything that I have purchased from Crutchfield is fantastic! If the low end stuff is this good then I can't wait to be able to afford higher end equipment. However, I would still keep this player, I really like it and have had no issues at all.
Pros: Very good reproduction without skips, not overly sensitive to slightly used disks, great price, multi disk table.
Cons: Nothing so far!!
I replaced a c380 with this cd player and like the improvements it has. The sound is really good for a lesser expensive unit and it is easy to use.
Pros: Sound is better than the c380 and I think this model is easier to use.
It holds 6 disk and just plug it in and live with it! Easy and fun
Just installed the Onkyo a few days ago. Good looking player. Love the 6 CD capacity. Easy to install and operate. It's playing great. What a deal for the price. Even though that's the MSRP, you're getting a lot of player for the money. Excellent deal from a fantastic seller, Crutchfield. I highly recommend the Onkyo DX- C390
Pros: - Good looking player - Great price point - Easy to setup - Easy to operate - Excellent sound - Love the 6 CD capacity
Cons: None at this time
Bought this unit after my old Sony Multi CD player started acting up. I would rather listen to CD's with quality headphones but none of the new players(very few multi CD/random players remain) that have a phone jack that has a volume control. This player has an optical output so I purchased an optical converter to headphone adapter with volume control. This player does the job with this addition. With the six CD play it is a fairly large unit so it is a hard unit to install in a component cabinet but I managed. Quality is good , can find no fault. Delivery was quick and in good shape. Very pleased with purchase.
It operates very smoothly, I love the 6 disc capacity and it is easy to use.
Very easy install, works beautifully and the price was quite reasonable!
I found this product to be perfect for my application in every way. The order was processed quickly, delivered on time, and the setup was very simple. The quality of the play is excellent as well. It fit perfectly with my existing equipment.
Very easy to install and operate.
No worries so far.Sound compares well to my single draw Onkyo C-7030 I like putting 6 CDS in and playing them randomly.Looks great with my other components.Great buy!
Pros: Plays well,sounds fine
Bullet proof, accurate sound, for the money delivers quality this is the second one I own and the first is 8 yrs old and reliable and great sound.
Pros: Cost, options and reliability
Provides great sound. Like the feature of providing six DVD storage. Great price for the features it provides.
A great CD player for the price.
Pros: Great price Great sound
Great Product,6 disc capacity
Pros: 6 disc capacity, can add or remove cd's when playing a cd easy hook up
Cons: Doesn't show total number of tracks on cd need more visible cd id numbers on carousal
Great purchase very good sound quality on my cd's . 4 stars !!
Pros: Great sound quality , being able to listen to all my music uninterrupted .
Better than I anticipated
The six cd changer is great. The random play does stop regularly. I think it would add more wear on the disc changer, so probably won't use it anymore. It's a great value.
Pros: 6 cd changer
Cons: Random play stops working
good price easy to set up just didn't realize how big it was
Pros: east to set up remote works well
Cons: the size it is very large
I have reviewed another CD player recently purchased that was posted in which a foretold this one coming. I bought this CD player to have ongoing music being played when I have company or when I am doing house chores etc. i still have CD's and I wanted to have a carousel to play MY CD's; my recorded music. That includes mixes that I put together. Random play sometimes employed; sometimes not. So - basically - this fits the bill well enough and some. The play is not seamless or close to it and I did not expect that having owned carousels is the past. The remedy to this was having my own mixes (as mentioned). I did not expect the fidelity and sound to be great as with the individually playing CD players. Ok - having said that- this CD does not have the quality of a DAC in Onkyo's single CD player. However, compared to other carousels this player sounds fantastic! My previous carousel was a Technics (died). This has nice clean separation and fidelity, but not with the same warmth and depth the single player. But what IS THERE sounds good. i still think it is worth owning. I am not able to yet comment on the longevity factor as I only recently purchased it. I think 4 stars is a fair appraisal, as subjective as this or any review is. Service from Crutchfield as usual was superb (5 Stars +)- Thank you guys and gals!
Easy install great sound to 11 speakers. My Harmon Kardon was great until it died but Onkyo matches up with great sound.
So far, very pleased! After considerable research, bought the Onkyo DX-C390 to replace a 30-year old single-disc CD player. Really like that I can load up six CDs for many hours of listening. Other components in my system are high-end: Jungson JA-88E amp and B&W speakers. The sound quality is as good or better than with my old CD player.
Out.of the box and playing cd's with great sound in under tem minutes Great buy!
Very nice system works perfectly.
I like the features such as MP3 play as well as digital and optical outputs.
Hard to find a good multi disc player...but here it is.Quiet and fast changer.Great price.Display dimmer.
Pros: See review
Best deal possible sorry I didn't get it $89.
This receiver was purchased to update equipment in a whole house sound system. Tied to a Russound distribution hub, the system works and sounds great. the Ethernet plug in tied into our router and to our listening pleasure, internet radio.
great product. I like that it can hold six disks. That's convenient!
very fast delivery easy to install sounds good I like the 6 disc option
Bought this changer to replace an old Sony 400 disc player. The Onkyo is quicker and quieter when changing discs. Sounds great! Unit arrived in 2 days. Crutchfield's service is always fantastic.
Pros: Great sound
Very quiet operation, clear sound and not much heat. Reliable remote and very clean lines. Highly recommended.
Pros: Technically and and visually perfect.
Cons: None so far
Top notch machine.
Pros: Tracks well. Excellent sound quality
Cons: Little switching tracks when in random mode.
I got one of these for a relative last year. I liked it enough to get one for myself. I'm really tired of the the lousy sound of MP3's and wanted to hear CD quality sound again. Very happy with purchase.
Pros: 6 disc capacity, change 5 while 6th one plays. Good random play option.
Cons: None so far
The 6 cd changer is awesome. It give all new meaning to random. Thanks
simple to set up--easy to use --works well with Sony amp we also purchased. The real plus was the excellent service extended by Marshall.
Great CD player!!
My feed back is about the same as the other low reviews. After a period of time, the device started turning on spontaneously. I called Onkyo who recommended I got through an arcane reset process. I did and it worked for a while. Then standby light started going on no matter what I did and most recently it began stopping mid song and turning on playing randomly. This went on for over a day. I've unplugged the possessed thing and ordered a Yamaha.
Pros: Actually sounds good and is easy to operate when it is working.
Cons: Turning on and playing randomly, stopping arbitrarily. Infuriating!
Hard to find a CD changer these days. This one works fine and sounds good.
easy to hook up and use.....my cds are spinning again!!
Pros: Crutchfield comes through again with a quality product at a great price. Too easy to purchase, receive and get set up!
Cons: Wasted time on other sites looking for a multi disc cd player.
Is an excellent product, the functios and the sound are more than I expected.
I bought the Onkyo after talking to Crutchfield about the compatibility with my Denon AVR. After receiving the Onkyo, I couldn't figure how to integrate the cd player with the Denon AVR. A call to Crutchfield resolved the problem. The cd player, the AVR and my Bose speakers produce sound superior to bluetooth from my iPhone or wi-fi from my MacBook Pro.
Pros: Almost plug and play, with Crutchfield help.
Cons: The system probably is not at audiophile level, bur it's affordable. The Onkyo is a one CD player, not six, OK with me, a lover of classical music. CDs will, I understand, will sooner or later become obsolete, another reason to go with this affordable model.
So far it works excellent,better sound than the one it replaced.
Pros: Easy hookup and easy to use nice remote.
Cons: None son far.
easy to install. sound very good. easy to use. used chat in order to choose and they were very helpful
Pros: see review
Cons: haven't come across any yet
It works well and love the convenience having of 6 CDs play one right after the other. The only thing I didn't like is after the 6 CDs it stops and you have to start it again. I had one years ago that would just keep on playing until I stopped it. This is great when working around the house and it's not real important to change the 6 Cds.
I have used this changer for about a month and I am glad that I bought it. Mechanically it is smooth and quiet. I find no faults with the sound quality. In fact it is motivation for cleaning up some of my old cabling. I have found most of the features that I will regularly use. Some features have not been tested yet, MP3 playback being a major one. Relies on use of the remote for some features as all electronics of this type seem to these days but the front panel gives you pretty good control. it is a little larger (inch or two inches) than the 5 disc changer it replaced but it is pretty compact for holding the extra disc .... just check its measurements against your available space before buying. I use CDs two or three hours a day so I am hoping it holds up, I can't speak to its reliability yet. I have another location where I listen to CDs on an old changer no longer produced. The old changer is rejecting some CDs now that play well enough on this new one and cleaning hasn't helped. I am thinking of ordering another of these Onkyos for that second location.
Pros: seems to be as advertised after one month and as far as I have tested it
Cons: none so far
The player has performed perfectly so far. The sound quality is very good, but I did upgrade the RCA cable from what was provided with the player. The instructions and controls are simple to understand and use. My last player lasted over 15 years...I hope this Onkyo unit lasts as long.
So far its been great. I've only had it a couple of weeks. Sound reproduction is a lot "clearer" than my old Sony it is replacing.
Pros: Very good customer service
Cons: none so far
So far so good, no problems. very good sound.
Pros: It was very easy to set up.
Cons: The size, it's deep.
This CD player is unreliable. After one month it would turn on randomly and shuffle on its own as well. Made in China is likely all you need to know.
Just what we wanted to replace same product
The product functions as advertised which means that it is performing at a high level of excellence. Musician friends of mine tell me that they are hearing things on their own CDs that they did not hear when listening through headphones attached to their own CD players -- quite high praise, I think.
The CD player reproduces excellent sound. One CD I've heard in the past was played resulting in new sounds on the song. I was surprised and impressed. The Kenwood 550 watt receiver helps, yet the CD player pulled the full music range off the CD. Excellent CD player.
Pros: Reproduces excellent sound and music.
I love it works very well with my system and my new Shaker 10 speakers I just bought, no hesitation in cd change quiet rotation quality is excellent shipping was fast and product was well protected.
Pros: This piece of equipment is a great piece of machinery that works very well.
Cons: No cons it's great
The Player works well (so far) and is a replacement for a retired player. I use the optical output to connect to an updated DAC. I am still a CD person and the Onkyo does what I need at a very low price.
This 6 disc player works well...Onkyo replaces the Sony 5 disc player which did not function at all...Now just waiting for my refund to be applied to the purchase of my new CD player...
Pros: so far great
Cons: no cons
Arrived lickety split and functions very well.
Pros: Simple to use, plays 6 discs without changing music every CD.
It serves our household very well. We just had a party and the music kept everything on track. I did not experience any lag and funny noises associated with a multiple disc player that is in the random mode. The sound reproduction is commendable.
Pros: 6 cds fill a great of time and can also fill a great deal musical variation. It moves smoothly between tracks and has some user friendly features for selecting discs etc.
Cons: I haven't found one yet.
So far so good. Nice sound, no difficulties so far.
Pros: Easy set up.
Replaced my Sony 5 disc carousel I had for many years. This was seamless in fitting right in with my Onkyo receiver. I look forward to many yeaars with this one
My Pioneer 6 CD Cartridge changer finally died after 25 years. I wanted a CD changer and this was the one that I found that I liked the best. I bought a Onkyo Receiver 3 years ago and have not problems with so now my system is starting to match again.
Pros: Easy to use and install unit
Cons: Bigger then my cabinet - I had to modify my cabinet to fit it in
I like the convenience of a multi-disc changer and am very pleased with this addition to my system. It was easily added to my existing mini system and I think the sound quality is excellent.
Pros: Multi disc system, ease of set-up
Cons: A bit large. This is a full size multi disc changer. I was more in the market for a mini system changer to add to my system. Not a negative comment, because I just set the mini single disc player, which has a FM tuner included, on top of the Onkyo. I am happy.
Just got the Cd player today, nicely pack. Great unit. Looks nice, Thank you God for this blessing.
Pros: Nicely pack, everything included in the box.
Excellent player! ONKYO delivers only excellence- very happy with this CD player.
Pros: Easy to use!!
Good fidelity and sound.
Pros: Ease of set up, ease of use.
Cons: Amount of time it takes to begin playing on random and the amount of time between each song on Random
This 5 disc changer is a great item. Easy to set up and use with great sound AND the price can't be beat (along with FREE SHIPPING!!!)
Pros: Ease of use Great Sound
This is much better than my 5 cd Sony changer that had become unreliable. The Sony clunked loudly every time it changed CD's. I don't even notice this one. I know it's better to use a single CD reader but when we have company over or when I'm working in the yard I want hours of music of my choice.
Pros: 6 CD changer that is very quiet. Has all the controls I need.
Cons: Because it's a 6 CD changer it is deep so notice the dimensions before buying. Where I'm using it this isn't a problem.
Thank You Crutchfield, Nice piece of equipment I took it to my work place and all of our clients have been enjoying all the music that's being played, daily or weekly our guest asked "what station is this?" or what cd is all the music on! I put on six cd's and hit random and the music is playing all day long and it's easy to change cd's while music is playing. So I can change the tempo throughout the day and pull in my guest to relax or feel up tempo through lunch and finish off the day with something smooth and mellow. The fact that guest are asking for the disc and where they can get it makes me smile from ear to ear! Thanks again guys!!
After searching for over a year for a CD player that would hold more than one disc at a time, I finally found what I was looking for in the Onkyo DX-C390. I listen to a lot of jazz, so it is really nice to be able to load more than one cd at a time. This enables me to enjoy several hours of music without having to stop to pop in another cd. The most gratifying thing this multiple disc player, is the beautiful sound quality that the unit puts out. Thank you so much for making my music much more enjoyable.
Pros: Very easy hook-up with other stereo equipment. Great piece of equipment to own, especially if you like to entertain.
Cons: Don't wait so long next time to buy.
I haven't had any problems with it so far. It does everything it says it suppose to do. It has nice smooth CD tray that stops on CD disk number 1 when the drawer is opened, which is a nice switch from my last CD changer where I had to hunt for CD disk number 1 all the time. It does take some getting used to, finding all the right buttons in the beginning - the Play, the Stop, etc.
Cons: It does have a wide tray that moves in and out and those folks who are planning to purchase this machine should be aware that on the left side in particular, it does not have a lot of clearance. In other words, I have my Onkyo unit in a cabinet and the CD tray almost cannot open and close on the left side due to the size and location of the tray drawer.
As always Crutchfield shipping time and product description were excellent. This is first Onyko audio device I have owned. It has excellent fidelity and operating features at a very reasonable price.
Pros: Operating instructions very easy to understand. Has everything we wanted in a multi CD player.
Very good sound and easy to operate. Received very promptly
Pros: 6 CD's, Onkyo quality, easy to connect
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.
Pros: Easy to set up and run. Very good quality sound. High quality. Case very nicely built.
The best cd player I have owned
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.
Pros: Excellent sound quality, elegant looks, ergonomic but sleek and sophisticated design.
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.
The CD player sound would periodically waver. CD's were very clean. Could not play a complete CD without at least one of the tracks wavering. Returned the unit and a replacement was shipped that initially was fine but soon resulted in the same perfomance as the 1st unit. I tried 3 different CD lens cleaners with little success. Even tried new cables.
Pros: Good sound when it works correctly. Easy to operate. Like the blue lighting. Excellent customer service.
Cons: Doesn't play music for very long before the tracks start skipping or the volume oscillates for a few seconds even with brand new CD's. Drives me nuts!! I'd rather read a book than listen to music that isn't clean.
After about a year this unit is toast. Too many other choices to recomend this product. Just not worth it.
Pros: Easy to load, can exchange disks while in use. Good display lighting.
Cons: Numbers on the carosel can't be seen, the light for low light visability is useless, died a premature death
I had problems only after about a month. Thinking it was an isolated problem, I got a replacement for it. Same problems after about 2 years even though I hardly used it. The power would turn on by itself, could not open/close, and the cd's would skip and change in middle of playing. Like a phantom player. I would never buy this brand of CD changer EVER again.
Our ONKYO CD changer that we used extensively for 12 plus years recently needed to be replaced. On a recent Thursday evening I went on Crutchfield's website and ordered a DX-C390. It was shipped the next day and was on our doorstep the following Monday. That evening I unpacked and installed it and we have been enjoying our CD's since. Great experience.
Ladies and Gentlemen, This is the SECOND Onkyo DX C390 that I have purchased from you. I have one in my home and that I have been using for the last 2 years. It runs and runs. The unit that i just purchased I installed in my finished garage where I do automotive work about 2days a week. My music is playing all of the time. I am an "Old school" component stereo Guy who likes to rig up his own sound systems. Crutchfield allows me to put my own stuff together. Speakers, Crossovers7 stuff like that. Thanks for the Great Products at reasonable prices.... Regards, Harry
I purchased this for Christmas (2) years ago. Hadn't used it for a while and thought I'd try it. The standby light is on, but I can't get it to come on. Since it's off warranty I contacted the authorized service center. It will cost me minimum of $75 to get it looked at, plus shipping both ways. Think I'll trash this one and buy a Sony or other reputable brand for less money than this one cost. Overall very disappointed with this product. I should have paid attention to the reviews. People, do yourself a favor and buy a different brand.
Pros: Plays (6) CDs. Nice appearance. Moonlight in front is pretty cool. Links well with the Onkyo receiver.
Cons: Large unit that takes up a lot of space.
I had this player for three years and and used all of about 20 times for about 30 hours. Went to use it after it had not been used for about a year, and it started to have an issue where it would play the first 20 seconds of a song repeatedly. Called Onkyo and was given the information to hard reset thet system. After resetting the system the player worked for 10 minutes and then just died. After speaking with Onkyo again, they wanted me to send the player to them for repair for an estimated cost of $300 according to he CS rep. After digging around on the internet, I found that the problem is a fuse that blew and that this is a very common issue with the Onkyo DX-C390. I then called onkyo again to try and purchase the part to fix it myself and to get the schematic to fix it, I was then quoted a price of $300 for the part and the schematic. Moral to this story, is to stay away from any Onkyo item that does not carry a warranty longer than 1 year.
I purchased this player to replace my Yamaha CDC-705 which lasted me almost 20 years. For its replacement, I wanted to go with a good brand name in an economical range. This player was a great bargain witha great brand name. I had this unit for 18 months with very few hours of playing time and it stopped playing. I did not buy the extended warranty with it being Onkyo. This player was out of warranty (1 year) and I was left with a player to put in the garbage. I've replaced it with another Yamaha and would never buy an Onkyo again. Even if it is on the lower end of their price range, if it is an inferior manufactured product, Onkyo shouldn't want their name associated with this product. If you still want to purchase this unit, defininitely get the extended warranty and keep the box it came in handy.
I've had one of these players for over 7 years and I have never had an ounce of trouble out of it. This is the only player I've had that doesn't skip at high volume. It is located about a foot away from my speakers that are bi-amped and produce chest pounding bass. I believe this is due to its solid construction. The sound is excellent. The only thing I don't like is the remote. You must point it pretty straight at the player to have it work. I have an Onkyo/Integra receiver that is linked to it so the receiver remote works it. Otherwise nothing bad to say about it. I may buy an extra one just incase I need to replace it as CD changers are getting very hard to find. I must have bought this when it was first introduced because I paid $100 more for it. Can't beat it for performance at this price.
So far, after several weeks of daily use, the product is working flawlessly. The sound quality is excellent and it works well with my Onkyo TX-SR706 Receiver. It is an excellent quality product for a relatively low price.
Big problems with this receiver. After 1 1/2 year, it sponatneously powers on. No cause. Now it starts to skip tracks, stops playing in the middle of a song, refuses to shut down when the Stop buttone or even the Power button is pressed-have to pull the plug!!. Have Googled and found many other with identical issues with this CD changer. Sad because Onyko used to be highly regard. Their Service Dept refuses any service since warranty only 1 year. Will no longer buy Onyko
This is actually the second of these players that I have had, with the same result. I have had this one for about a year the first only abut six months. It started out with waking up in the morning finding the unit running. Now it won't play at all will not even power on. I keep all of my electronics plugged into a power conditioning UPS system so when they tell me it must be a power flaw or surge problem it doesn't set well with me. I have a great Onkyo receiver Tx-SR806 and absolutely love it and haven't had a single problem with the receiver. So I still believe in their products, just not this one. Crutchfield did replace the first unit with great service after I paid for the replacement until they received the problem child then they credited my account.
Great piece of equipment. Easy to use tray open button and tray rotate button could be a little larger but with the remote it doesn't matter that much. Hooked it up to an Onkyo 7.1 110-w receiver and got excellant sound. Good buy for the money
This is definitely a great choice when it comes to purchasing a CD changer. Easy to use, easy to set up, and it sounds great. There isn't much noise that comes from the machine as it changes disc either. The Onkyo link is a nice feature, basically when you turn the CD player on it will turn your Onkyo reciever on as well. The machine is a bit bulky, but other than this CD player is perfect.
I purchased this changer to replace an older Onkyo Integra DX-C909 that had seen better days. Let me just say, even though the specs are slightly different in favor of the integra, the DX-C390 sounds just as incredible if not better! You can't beat the sound and build quality for the price. My old Integra was double the cost of the DX C390 and this changer is just as good! I've even noticed much more bass response and similar sound seperation and staging compared to the Integra while running through RCA analog connections. The only drawback is that it does not have a music calendar to show the unplayed songs in shuffle mode, but I'd rather have the audio quality. I have excellent quality equipment and cables being the audio freak that I am and the DX C390 goes great with my system! Take it from this audiophile, if you are looking to not break the bank and get a good quality changer, get the DX C390!
I purchased the player as I had an old Onkyo 828 receiver that lastest over ten years with great performance. The player was easy to install up as it supports all the hookups. The sound quality is suitable as well for a midrange product. The Marantz CD player was a little out of my budget. The remote is small and compact which I prefer compared to some of the clunky remotes I have. I did have a scare the other night when I only put in two CD's. When changing between the CD's one seemed to skid off to the back of the player. I was able to correct after some frustration and fright that I would damage the player and the CD. Hopefully a one time occurance. After 30 days so far so good
My Sony CDP-C79ES finally gave in after 17 years of abuse and good quality music playback. I needed an Onkyo product to go with my Onkyo TS- RX605 Receiver for remote control purposes, so I chose the DX-C390. It is very easy to use and sounds great! It plays pre-recorded discs, CD-Rs, CD- Rws, and MP3 discs flawlessly. It will show the artist/track name when playing your own DATA(MP3) discs. If features digital optical, coaxial and analog RCA outputs for compatibility with any system, and the cosmetics of the front of the unit are very pleasing. It doesnt have a huge amout of buttons on the front, just the ones for basic operation, adding to its ease of use. Bottom line, fantastic player for a low price!
I only got to use the player for about 2 months before the first problems started showing up. First the player would continually "skip" and play a very loud "pop" noise sometimes or just hang up and keeps skipping for a few seconds. At first I just thought this was a dirty disc, but soon all CD started doing it. The problem went away for a while after giving the unit the old snack treatment so I thought I must have dislodged some dust. Next the player would not read any of my discs. It would hang up for a while and then so 99 tracks and a dash for track time. It also had trouble picking up and replacing the discs on the carousel, where discs wouldn't sit right when ejected. At this time I sent the unit out for repair and no more than a few hours after getting it back did it have trouble reading discs again. Unplugging the unit helped but 2 weeks later it died again and currently it is out for it's second repair. I have an Onkyo Receiver and I absolutely love it, which is why I got the CD player but now I'm wishing I'd saved up for the Marantz.
I'm very happy with the Sound Quality of this unit combined with the Onkyo Amplifier/Receiver. The interaction between both units create a quailty listening experience.
I bought this brand because I have an Onkyo home theater receiver already. Setup was easy and I connected a toslink optical cable for digital quality audio. This is my first CD Changer and it's nice to be able to listen to multi-disc albums like Pink Floyd and Bee Gees right thru my work at home. 6-8 hours of music is good for the 'soul', if you ask me. It's an excellent 'bang for the buck' and Crutchfield is top notch, also. I only gave it four stars because I haven't had it but a few weeks.
Sound Quality is better than expected at this price point. Continuous Play CD feature is cool because you can load your music and let it run. Good value for the money.
I have owned DX-C390 CD player for about 5 years now and it has never refused to play anything I have placed into it. The sound today is just a clean and rich as the day I took it out of the box. Let me tell you this unit is well built. I have moved 4 times locally and each time I repack the player in the original box. Survived everytime. The DX-C390 is worth every penny it costs. Every brand has bad units here and there and I feel it is unfair to condemn this beautiful player on that basis.
The DX-C390 is my second Onkyo CD player. The first worked for 3-years. The DX-C390 worked well for about 1 year. The transition on random play was slow from the start, now it does not work at all. The player does not advance to another CD and the player often does not recognize CDs. The DX-C390 is one of the most disappointing pieces of electronics that I have ever purchased.
I purchased this CD player in October of 2005 and for a year or so it played fine. The problem with it now is the music will stop for a moment then start again. <BR> If you are looking for a good player for just one year, then this is the player you've been looking for!
I used to be in love with this player. Good looks and it played perfectly until about two weeks ago. Now it inexplicably stops playing standard discs. It doesn't matter if the disc is flawless. Once it stops playing the rest of the controls work only spradically--it won't even turn off. Of course it is out of warranty so I'll send it in for repair if the cost is reasonable. I'll post a follow up review when I get it back from repair.
I bought this specifically to be able to use CD-RW CDROMS in order to take more of my 1200 CD collection onto a disc. Thought it would be cool for xmas music - just have a huge amount of MP3s and then go!<BR><BR>tried 5 different brands of CDRW, and 2 of CD-R. This unit could not read most of the formats. <BR><BR>If you're looking for a CD player for your regular collection - decent player. If you are planning on using CDRW or CD-R, it will be a challenge, and you may want to look elsewhere.
Unbelievable! Fantastic sound quality for the price. I would recommend this unit to anyone.
I agree with the other positive reviews with two exceptions.<BR>1.) The "random" function is awful if you have more than two mp3 discs in the player. The lag time between songs is a disappointing 15-30 seconds!<BR>2.) I connected this component to my Onkyo receiver/ home entertainment system, and I was expecting more functionality and synergy with the remote control connection cable that allows you to use one remote for both units.<BR>Otherwise, I think this is a great value and the sound produced is awesome.
Would not play or recognize any CDs. I tried standard music CD, MP3s, CDs recorded at home and would not play any of them.
I've had this player for 1 week now. One word describes this unit, Awesome! I've owned models from Sony and Pioneer Elite. The Onkyo beats them all. Whether listening to Lenny Kravitz, Jewel or The Lord of the Rings Soundtracks, the highs sound natural, mids are warm and the lows are incredible. Voices are natural and clear. The unit is quiet when changing discs. If you need a stand alone cd player, this is the one to bye.
I bought this unit recently because I was looking for a dedicated CD player for my home system. They are certainly a lot harder to find these days, even vs. three to four years ago. I read up on this CD player and loved its features (multi-disc, quality construction, good brand, digital outputs, multi-format capability, etc.). I ended up choosing it over some of the low-end Sonys, the new ES Sony CD/SACD changer, and several home CD recorders, mainly because of the quality to price ratio.<BR><BR>Let me say, I love this unit! It functions smoothly and flawlessly right out of the box. When coupled with my Denon AVR-3805 receiver through the digital coaxial out, the sound is tight and true to the source material. It is a big step up from the previous CD recorder/player I had (a Phillips). I have had no problems with CD recognition or playback, and the overall aesthetics of the unit (aluminum face, display, dimmer, etc.) are outstanding. For the money, you would be hard pressed to find its equal on the market today. It lacks some minor convenience features (such as CD text display, headphone output, etc.), but makes up for it in clean lines and excellent sound.<BR><BR>I highly recommend this unit to anyone out there who is looking for a true CD player, not simply a DVD player that "by the way" plays CDs, too. It is worth the investment to get the most from your pure audio sources, in my opinion.

They will be able to help determine the differences between the models and help you make the best choice for your system.[ Kenny Jul 08, 2016 ] Staff
Yes, you need an amplifier. The specs listed on the Onkyo website for this model don't actually give the output levels, but it is clear that this player must feed its output to an amplifier to which speakers are attached. Of course, if you use self-powered speakers, they have the amplifier built in, so that would work as well.[ David Jul 10, 2016 ]
You need a receiver. Any cheap receiver will do. Or a universal device that includes a receiver, with audio inputs, such as a Bose Soundwave. But... I bought this Onkyo and it broke within 20 hours of use. It won't load or play CDs properly. I'd buy a cheap Sony or Kenwood (if available) model instead.[ Benjamin Jul 09, 2016 ]
you need a receiver or amplifier[ Kathryn Jul 08, 2016 ]
According to the Onkyo DX-C390 owner's manual, the unit's dimensions are 17-1/8"W x 5-3/16"H x 17"D. That's one and a quarter inches less in depth compared to the dimensions listed in the Overview text.[ Martin Nov 22, 2016 ]
Thanks for your question. The manufacturer lists the dimensions as: 17-1/8"W x 5-3/16"H x 18-1/4"D. This information is kind of hidden. On the product page overview, click "Read More". Hope this information helps.[ Kenny Jul 08, 2016 ] Staff
Thanks for your question. There is one digital optical output and there is no cable included. You can find this information on the product page under the details tab, with the subheadings "what's in the box", and "outputs". Hope that helps.[ Kenny Apr 18, 2016 ] Staff
Do you mean for amplification purposes? If so, the answer is no. The Onkyo doesn't have any input jacks; only output jacks -- so you wouldn't be able to plug the tuner into the Onkyo.[ PHILIP S Mar 11, 2016 ]
I had a Sony receiver in place when I replaced my previous CD changer with the DX390. I had no issues integrating it into my system. I can't imagine that it would not be compatible to another Onkyo product, but again, I cannot speak from experience.[ Ray Mar 11, 2016 ]
Thanks for your question. No there is no radio tuner built into this item. It would need to be connected to a separate receiver for playback. Hope that helps.[ Kenny Feb 22, 2016 ] Staff
I replaced a brand new SONY with the Onkyo TX830 and I'm really glad I did. Sound quality and reliability are excellent. - Ray[ RAY Feb 09, 2016 ]

CRUTCHFIELD HAS NEVER LEAD ME ASTRAY,,,, EXCELLENT AFTER MARKET SUPPORT.... THANKX CRUTCHFIELD....REGARDS,,,,DAVID R[ DAVID R Feb 09, 2016 ]
I'm not a good person to ask this question to. I've never been able to get mine hooked up and running, even my husband was unable to get it up and running, so it just sits and collects dust[ ANN Feb 09, 2016 ]
If you are asking, "Is the Onkyo carousel CD player compatible with the TX380 receiver?" the answer is yes: totally compatible.[ PHILIP S Feb 09, 2016 ]
Yes it is. It's compatible with most receivers[ john Feb 08, 2016 ]
Yes it will, this unit has RCA, or digital coaxial and optical outputs. For connection to your Kenwood would just use the standard analog RCA (red/white) cables. This is a new unit.[ Kenny Dec 23, 2015 ] Staff
Sorry - don't know answer. Happy with performance of unit domestically[ REY T Nov 25, 2015 ]
No I don't believe so.[ john Nov 24, 2015 ]
You can get a universal remote that will control the player (and many other devices) but if you want the Onkyo RC-777C remote that came packaged with the player, you may be able to get one from their parts department. You can reach their parts department directly by dialing : 201-785-2600 I hope that helps![ Ryan Nov 06, 2015 ] Staff
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone or online chat to discuss compatibility with your current system. They will be able to pull up your gear and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.[ Jeff Jan 10, 2014 ] Staff
