Just slide across horizontally and don't forget to keep it closed when not in use to prevent dust build up. Be aware that dust can build up quickly on the exposed lens.

Do you mean to tell me that on such an expensive cd player, you have to manually slide the cover closed? My very old Sony SCD 777ES sacd player does it automatically. Then again, they use their own transport, not some cheap Phillips pro plastic transport. IMHO, a player that expensive, should use a better transport like one of the Esoteric's.
I meant to ask if you're supposed to lift the sliding cover handle a tiny bit towards the end of travel, when sliding horizontally to the left.
In my case, if I slide the cover horizontally without pulling up the handle a bit towards the end of sliding, the cover won't close completely. There is a kind of bump blocking the action. Any issue with it? Any adjustments need to be done?
Thanks for your help.
Gregf1, thanks a lot for your post.
Actually, I was able to figure it out last night myself. Now it slides very smoothly. CD7 is such a nicely designed and built player. Very solid and heavy-duty.
I was looking at the Marantz SA7-S1 but changed my heart for the ARC CD7. Well, the SA7-S1 is a good player but the CD7 is much more involving and emotional, thanks to the use of 6 tubes (mine was upgraded by ARC to have the 5881 tube, which replaced two 6H30 tubes).
CD7 presents a bigger and deeper soundstage, more air, more layers and better separations. These are my initial impressions after a very short audition.
BTW, I wonder if there's a dimming functing for the LCD display on the CD7. I read it some where either CD8 or CD7 has this feature (4 step dimming). But it doesn't show in the instruction manual.
Thanks again, everyone.
