Very good small CD-player, with MP3, WMA playing feature. Plays not only CD and MP3, WMA discs, but pendrives also. The only problem with USB playing is the following: when you browse folders on a pendrive, the player sometimes disconnects it, and displays â€žnot connectedâ€ then loads it again. That's pretty annoying. But this never happens when it's only playing and you are not browsing folders.
It has all usual features (random play, direct track play, A-B playback, repeat, programmed playback from CD) AND it has the following special features:
- plays programmed from USB also (my Marantz CD6003 doesn't play programmed from USB)
- fast forward WITH sound (doesn't mute like other models, for example my Marantz CD6003 )
- you may open the CD tray while it plays a pendrive, and it doesn't stop playing.
It displays all file texts â€“ file name, track title, artist, album, comments- during playback.
This player has no headphone output, but it is not a big problem for me.
There is a multifunctional Toshiba TC94A70FG chip as MP3/WMA-decoder and as D/A converter inside. The player uses high slew rate (45V/ms) NJM2137 opamps as output analog amplifier. The main printed circuit board has SMD layout, it's difficult to repair.
The sound is relaxed, there are no extra boosts or cuts. I feel very little cut around 150 Hz, but perhaps the sound of Marantz CD6003 is very vivid, and that's why I feel some lack at this frequency range comparing to the CD6003. I recommend to pair PD-H380 with something dynamic sounding amplifier. I have choosed Yamaha AX-496.
