Since my wife's back surgery which substantially limited her movement especially any bending over, this 6-disc player has been a tremendous choice. We can load it or change discs once a day for her and she's set for all day while the kids are at school and I'm at work. All the features she wants, great playback and an even better deal for less than $200! Liked it so much we bought a second one.

Nice looking, feels like quality. I have hooked to 40" Samsung HDTV with HDMI (only supports 1080i) and picture is not great. Think my old Sony with s-video was better. Looking forward to recabling with component video cables to support 1080p and hoping for the best. Audio is outstanding on CD's!

Comments about Onkyo DV-CP706B 6-Disc Carousel DVD Player (Black):

I replaced a failed unit with this one. Very simple and effective way to provide hours of entertainment with uninterupted play of the carousel design. No one else makes these anymore. I wish it would play BluRay too.

    Comments about Onkyo DV-CP706B 6-Disc Carousel DVD Player (Black):

    I received my unit yesterday, and set it up this afternoon. So far I am very impressed. It's easy to use, easy to set up, and it is pretty much the only DVD changer that's still available, other than the Sony megachanger. I love Sony electronics, and my house is filled with them, but Sony has a disadvantage for me: their North American units will not play PAL format discs at all. I researched the features of this Onkyo unit before I bought it, and was uncertain about whether it would play PAL discs or not, though I suspected that the North American model would actually play both NTSC and PAL, but the video output would be NTSC. In other words you can't use it with a PAL TV, but who in the US has one of those anyway? I have a number of PAL DVDs, and I popped one of them in as soon as the unit was set up. It played the disc without a hitch! The unit is solidly built: it looks and feels substantial. I'm interested to see if it holds up over the long haul, but so far I am very happy!

      Comments about Onkyo DV-CP706B 6-Disc Carousel DVD Player (Black):

      I also own a Sony 5Disk Player, but it seems that no is making a multi disk Player in Blue Ray or Regular Player except Onkyo & it took me several weeks to find it. I have a regular Sony 5 Disk Player which works well but parts like a remote are no longer available and I am so disgusted with Sony that I don't think I will ever buy their products again.The only problematic thing about the Onkyo Player was the instruction was not very clear regarding how one would be able to intermix CD's & DVD's & get the Player to continuously play them?
      After some time the Onkyo Tech. Advisor was able to solve the problem, so the Player does work well now.

      Comments about Onkyo DV-CP706B 6-Disc Carousel DVD Player (Black):

      I love this player because I can fill it with 6 kid DVDs and not have to worry about changing it every 30-45 minutes. It goes for hours. If you have someone who is ill, this can carry them through a day once it's loaded. Then there's me who can sit on the couch and not have to move for hours.

        This DVD player is so much fun because you can load a whole season of your favorite tv show or spend the afternoon watching old movies that you can't find on television.
        You won't be sorry you made this purchase.

            Bought this to replace a no longer made Sony DVD multi player. Works like a champ. Like the remote and the tray light. Six disk capability is super. Easy to hookup and operate. Will definitly buy another one when my other players wear out.

            Not sure how to set the player for continuous play of DVD's. When starting the DVD player we encounter a need to "start" each DVD if it is to be played, thus negating the reason for purchasing a continuous play set. It may work differently with CD's as they do not require a play prompt.

                    One of the few multi-disc DVD players out there; I was glad to find it. I'm using it in our bedroom, where the tv is awkardly placed and it's hard to take discs in and out all the time. I've loaded it up with a variety of DVDs so I can just push a button and watch something quickly, when I'm sleepy or not feeling well. It's hooked up to an older TV with RCA cables and works fine that way; it will use HDMI but don't worry if your TV is not so equipped. The only minor problem I've had so far is that the sensor for the remote seems to be below the level of the disc tray. When the tray is open, you have to point the remote below it for it to work. If you have it on a low shelf it can be tricky.

                    I purchased this unit to replace a older Sony DVD carousel that got fried by a thunderstorm. I use it for music 99% of the time so I can't comment on it's video qualities. Sound is very good and operation is easy. The unit is attractive and the mechanicals sound pretty smooth.
                    The remote is a little cheap and too many functions are only on the on screen menu. Feature wise it falls short of my Sony but was half the price.
                    All in all a good value for the money.

                      I like the fact that you can load the carousel with six DVDs. I often have four discs in the tray, two movies and probably a Three Stooges DVD where I will watch one short in between movies.

                      This player does something different than others in that you can open the tray while watching a movie. Different, huh?

                          Love that this product will hold 6 discs. Holds whole season of a TV series - - or lots of CD's if I want to listen instead of watch. Loads discs quickly, & has a great picture on 1080 (we're using S-video cable). One rather annoying thing: too much on the display -- hard to differentiate the numbers quickly.

                              I was very relieved and happy to find a 6 disc player. Most players are either 1 disc or 400. I wanted neither. I was not sure about Onkyo but decided to take a chance as this was the only 6 disc carousel player I could find. We love it! [...] easy to install and it has great features especialy the "Party Mode" which allows you to hear all of your tunes in a random fashion. We definitely reccommend this dealer and product!

                                  Thanks so much for offering this product. I work in an airport where we have an Aviation Museum/Observation Room. As part of customers visiting the museum, we like to show aviation related documentations or movies as an added amentity during wait times. 6-disc DVD players are almost obsolete, so thanks again for offering this product.

                                    I am very satisfied overall with all features and design. Honestly never thought I would pay over $200 for a DVD player but I am hoping this model will last longer then the last two Sony's I had. The remote control is weight balanced and buttons are a good size, and the locations are fine. Display button shows lots of info, more than needed.
