I am sorry for not being able to answer for so long.
Thank you for your reply and for your help.
Sorry I did not think about the sites that are blocked in China.
I have attached the pictures that you couldn't see - if it is still inetersting for you.
Anyway, I am happy that your opinion of Onkyo is quite positive, as I like it very much too :) ..and will hopefully buy it soon.

I hope I did not offend you :)
But again, I couldn't find any photos I am interested in. That's why I've made such an assumption.
I would go for Marantz (by the way, is there any difference between CD5004 and CD6004 apart from USB input?), if it wasn't a bit out of my budget.
Speaking about DSD, they (audio engineers, probably?) shift the noise generated because of the use of Sigma-Delta modulation to the higher frequensies (higher than 20kHz), so that the noise wouldn't be audible?
I would, but Claritas is right - I can't buy several audio gear components to review them and then make a decision..
I agree with you, however, Onkyo states that it is just "Wolfson® 192 kHz/24-Bit D/A Converter" and doesn't add anything else.
The more expensive model, C-7070, has "two 24-bit WM8742 DACs.", but they don't say if the C-7030 has one WM8742 or some different Wolfson chip..
Regarding the power supply and output stage I again agree with you, but we need internal pictures for that, as there is not so much information in the official user manuals.
I like Onkyo more (than TEAC), to be honest, I don't know why, but I have more trust in that company.
You are right :)
You see, I am intending to buy CD player via US Amazon (as you have the lowest prices there on the audio components) and ship it with the help of third party (Shipito). The shipping expenses are quite high (about 50% of the equipment price, in my case), so I would waste my time, money and nerves if I rely on the return policy too much :(
