Upgraded CD player/cassette recorder for the discerning audiophile.
TASCAM has updated its best-selling combination CD players/cassette recorders by creating the CD-A550. Like TASCAM's CD-200, this model uses TEAC's CD-5020A drive mechanism, designed for audio playback with a smooth loading drawer and low clamping noise. New features include MP3 and WAV file playback, CD Text display, Auto Cue and Auto Ready. Also new is the digital output and pitch control for both the CD and cassette mechanisms.
Other features of the CD-A550 include unbalanced phono inputs and outputs. Contractor-specific features such as power-on play, a wired remote control, rackmountable design and CD shock memory to ensure reliable performance.
