Replaced my 20 year old cd player with this and am wondering why I waited so long! Easy to set up with my new Yamaha RS700 Receiver and I'm really enjoying the sound.

Do to limited space in cabinet, needed to go with single disc player. This was a goof fit, and I'm glad I went with Yamaha. Sound is great, and easy to play Ipod thru usb port.
Bought the CD-S300 to replace a 24 year old Yamaha CDC-615. Wish I had purchased sooner. The sound is incredible. So much easier playing from USB flash drive too.
When my old Toshiba unit that finally died in September, 2014, I bought the Yamaha CD-S300 to replace it. I use it about 1-2 hours a day in a total Yamaha system (NS670 speakers, CR420 receiver, and Goertz silver interconnects and copper speaker cables). The burn-in took until late December 2014 to "settle-in". It was worth the wait. The sound is very revealing of the CD recording quality and what is on the CD. While the increased detail exposes more of why they are poor recordings, somehow the unit manages to make them more enjoyable than before. Well recorded CDs can be simply superb. Instruments sound like they should. Trombones sound like trombones, symbols will shimmer, and violins are sweet or aggressive as the music dictates. Voices are more real and nuanced. This allows the Yamaha system to excel at hard rock, classical, Blues, Country and Western, and other types of music. I highly recommend the Yamaha CD-S300.
Use this product on a new yamaha 2040 AV receiver it is a great match. Along with paradigm 100 speakers. Would buy this product again.
I need to write down the CD song number before turning off the player. As the player automatically plays the first song when turned-on. My Yamaha DVD S1600 remembers the last song played and starts with the next song when turned-on.
I have had at least 7 higher end CD players in the $1500.00 range and this unit has blown them away for sound quality and the DAC is amazing. This is a no bells or whistles unit it does two things, it plays cds and it plays digital music very well. You wont be dissapointed.
I was looking for a single tray player without breaking the bank,after reviewing other brands and having Yamaha equipment in the past I decided to go with Yamaha again.i have to say the build quality is a lot better than there older stuff and the player sounds the best,better than cd players that cost twice as much.im very happy with it Yamaha stands by quality and there products if you are looking for a great single tray cd player without spending $700.00 or more this is the one to buy.
Bought on line from retailer. CD Player better then I expected. Very easy to operate and sounds great.
This unit is value for money, sleekly laid out and simple to operate. The overall sound is not too colored and I like the Pure Direct button. I wish my personal player would connect successfully to it, though. Not sure where the problem lies....
VERY SIMPLISTIC UNIT. NOT COMPLICATED AT ALL, NICE SOUNDâ€¦WOULD LIKE TO SEE A 1.5mm PORT FOR MY ANDROID PHONEâ€¦.
