The Media Operator from American Audio is an ideal solution for controlling MP3 tracks in retail locations, buildings, restaurants, basically any installation where an easy, reliable way to manage digital music is needed. It's great for mobile entertainers too, with full playback control similar to most professional CD players. Its pro features include Seamless Loop, Tempo Lock, Pitch Control (±4%, ±8%, ±16%), Pitch Bend, Repeat Mode, and an Auto BPM Counter.

This all-in-one, simple-to-operate professional MP3 player is equipped with both an SD Card slot and a USB 2.0 slot. The SD slot is designed to read SD cards up to 4GB and does not accept SDHC cards (SDHC cards can be read via the USB reader). With a 1GB SD Card having the capacity to store up to 1000 MP3 tracks, the Media Operator makes it possible to play and manage a vast library of digital music from one compact, simple-to-use rackmountable unit.

Folder and track search knobs make it quick and easy to find the MP3 track you're looking for. A bright, user-friendly LCD display on the front of the unit shows MP3 track listings, as well as Single/Continue and Time viewing. The Media Operator also features American Audio's Advanced Cueing, with track searching done by the frame rather than by the second for greater pinpoint accuracy.

The Media Operator includes Master Volume Control, as well as a microphone input (XLR / 1/4" combo). Additionally there are two line out options, XLR and RCA. This allows you to plug the unit directly into powered speakers or an amplifier through the balanced XLR outs, or go to a preamp mixer using the RCA outputs.

Nice product, works just as advertised...

By Paul D

Comments about American Audio Media Operator USB & SD Card Player:

Offers some significant pluses over the company's earlier SDJ-1, in the form of mike input, volume control, and USB port for use with hard drives. Also has separate knobs for selecting folders and individual tracks within the folders, a big improvement. It's also smaller. Very easy to use; no boot up time, handles up to a 32gb SD card with no trouble, and I've been using a 16gb flash drive as well with no problems. Only thing that could improve it would be keyboard searchability, but for what this device does, it's definitely worth the money.

Better Than Anticipated

By DJ Kenz

from Gastonia, N.C.

Comments about American Audio Media Operator USB & SD Card Player:

Have had the American Audio Media Operator for about 2 weeks and have had no trouble so far. I was a little worried on how this piece of equipment would operate and if it would be dependable. I bought this as a backup and possibly using for ceremony music for weddings. I have been pleased so far and have no issues. The only thing is you will need to use the cheaper SD cards like 2gb. and 4gb. It will not work with the SCSD cards correctly. I have found that you can plug your external hard drive and it will read that with no problems. Like I said this is not for a Club DJ or even your main setup, but it can be a excellent choice for a easy to set up backup. Great for restaurants or bars to program music without the use of a DJ.
