TASCAM CD500B COMPACT DISC PLAYER

TASCAM’s best-selling line of single-rackspace CD players has been updated with the CD-500B. The CD-500B is a slot-loading CD player with a new transport, featuring brushless motors and an edge-grabbing mechanism to prevent disc damage. A front-panel 10-key pad is available for instant access to CD tracks, and flash start is available for instant playback.

The CD-500B supports MP3 and WAV file playback from CD-ROM as well as traditional audio CDs. The TASCAM CD-500B includes 16% pitch control for CD playback speed. Other features include incremental play, fader start, Call/return to last play point, fade in/out, power on play and more.

A variety of control and interface ports are found onto the rear panel. Both RCA unbalanced and XLR balanced analog outputs are provided, as well as S/PDIF and AES/EBU digital outputs. The CD-500B can be controlled through RS-232C, Parallel, wireless remote control or an optional RC-3F footswitch.

The reliable CD-500B is a perfect solution for installation, touring, house of worship and anywhere else rackspace is at a premium.

Available at a lower price point than the CD-500B, the CD-500 does not include the XLR balanced outputs, AES/EBU digital I/O or parallel control.

A useful CD player to have around due to the balanced outputs and 1U space requirement. Can take quite a bit of vibration whilst playing. The analogue sound quality is not so hot, it sounds harsh like CD players did in the 1980's.
