Music Lovers Rejoice!
Those looking for the ultimate in CD playback from an audiophile-grade component will be impressed with a 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 an 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 DX-C390 is ready to provide hours of uninterrupted music for the soundtrack to your life. Just hook it up to a receiver and some speakers (or skip the receiver and go right to powered speakers) and you're good to go.

- Single-Bit DAC: Multi
- 6-disc Changer: Carousel
- Number of Repeat Modes: 6
- Random Track Memory: 40
- Direct Track Access: by remote
- Digital Output (Optical/Coaxial): 1 Optical/1 Coaxial
Unique Design Concept
Change up to 5 discs while one is still playing with the DX-C390’s exclusive 6-disc carousel design. Also, an elegant light is conveniently located above the loading mechanism for easy disc recognition when changing in the dark. And when you open the tray to put in your favorite music, you’ll be amazed at the lack of sound with its exclusive ultra-quiet loading mechanism.
Exclusive Direct Digital Path
Unlike other CD players that use PC-board copper traces to transfer the digital audio signal, the DX-C390 employs a high-purity, heavy-gauge, shielded cable to directly output the digital bitstream straight from the disc to the back panel. The result is a noise-free digital audio signal that is less susceptible to flux.
VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry)
Conventional D/A conversion methods reduce digital pulse noise at the conversion stage but can’t remove it completely. Previously only available on Onkyo’s high-end components, VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) employs a unique D/A conversion circuit to overcome this problem. Data is converted between the sampling points and these discrete sampling points are joined with analog vectors in real-time to produce a smooth output waveform. The result—a noiseless, smooth analog signal based on the digital source.
Instead of using your small computer speakers, you can play your MP3 files via the DX-C390—up to 10 hours or more of music on a single disc, depending on the bit rate of the MP3 files. Play these back with Onkyo’s exclusive VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) to bring out the nuances and clarity you would have never thought possible.
