I guess there's a mini-jack for the headphones?

There are two, a mini and a 1/4" jack - both work with either input.

By any chance did you demo the model's below/above (325is/RS1i) before your purchase? If so IYO how/how much did they differ and how did you come to the decision of the RS2i?

Also why did you upgrade from the 125i? Just interested IYO. Thank's, I'm only asking because I upgraded from the SR80i to the MS2i then switched  to the 325is recently.

Who's the newest RS1 owner? Meeeeee!

Upgrading from the 80i's...have had them 3 years now. Thanks to a fellow head-fi user, they're a used 1999 pre-serial model, white drivers, look and smell great lol.

Nice budget CD player. The Grados I've had for a while, though.

Congrats!! Great avatar, too...I miss Axl and the boys! One of the greatest revelations with my Grados has been how amazing my GnR Live disc sounds all of a sudden. Brings those tracks to life!

I now that this is not the ''music'' thread, but if some of you know and like Ennio Morricone's ''Once upon a time in the west'' check this out, i'm still shivering!

Is that an Onkyo? (flash obscures a bit of the model # on the front)

Yeah, onkyo c-7030. Pretty nice for my first CD player.

And I just realized I posted it in the wrong thread. redface.gif I meant to post that pic in significant purchases, but hey, it's here already, I'll leave it.

It's a good picture. smily_headphones1.gif

How do you like that CDP? I've seen them mentioned a few times in the past, but my only experience with Onkyo has been their shelf systems and AVRs (neither of which have impressed me much, but I have this feeling that Onkyo is like Toyota - they have a lot of economy models that will "get you there" but there's also Lexus sitting in the background to show the world what billions of dollars of R&D can accomplish).

I can't comment on how it compares to other CD players; I haven't heard any. What I can tell you is that it's a huge step up from my laptop souncard. From what I've read online while looking for a good player to buy, it's a steal at its $200 price tag. Anywhere I go that has discussed ~$200 players, the C-7030 is recommended or listed as one of the best in its price range. So I thought what the hell. I got it and I'm not regretting it one bit.

Plus now, without that nasty computer monitor in the way, I can finally focus on the music. smily_headphones1.gif

I can tell you this, if you are looking for a very good, well built, sounding cd player, the vintage sony cdp-c601/701/801, as well as the 67/77/87ES model's sound beutiful and you can pick them up on ebay at time's for 100$U.S.give or take a couple of dollar's
