Those looking for the ultimate in CD playback from an audiophile-grade component will be impressed with Onkyo DX-C390 high-precision, multi-bit D/A converter and 128 x oversampling. Others looking for convenience will thrill at the sight of 6-disc capability, 6 repeat modes, 40 track programming—and no worries about interruptions to your music, with the ability to change 5 discs while the last one is still playing. All will marvel at the crystal-clear playback, enhanced by our exclusive VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry), for a smoother sounding audio signal. Just as crucial to your sonic enjoyment is Direct Digital Path, a heavily shielded, high-quality cable that protects the delicate audio signal from noise emitted by the surrounding circuits. Housed in a sturdy chassis graced with a brushed aluminum front panel, the Onkyo DX-C390 is ready to provide hours of uninterrupted music—for the soundtrack to your life.
The Onkyo DX-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.
Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC)
The Onkyo DX-C390 uses Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry to remove stray pulse noise for a smoother, richer analog output signal.
Direct Digital Path
Direct Digital Path signal routing provides a shorter, cleaner path from the signal processing PC board to the digital outputs than typically found on other players. This direct signal path routing is used to prevent corruption of the signal by noise from the ICs and power supply.
This Onkyo DX-C390 unit will play MP3 files recorded onto CD-R, and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660 level 1/level 2, Romeo, or Joliet formats. MP3 files with a sampling rate of 8-48 kHz and a bit-rate of 8-320 kbps are supported. Fixed bit-rate MP3 files are recommended, however, variable bit-rate MP3 files are supported. Each disc can have a maximum of 499 files and 99 folders.
You can exchange up to 5 discs while playing a sixth; once the drawer is open, 2 CDs can be changed, then you must use the Disc Skip button to remove the remaining three.
This feature allows you to choose the next track, folder, or disc for playback, without interrupting the current song playing.
RI remote control input and output mini-jacks allow you to transmit remote codes from a compatible Onkyo unit to this unit.
