Affordable CD Player Features New Transport
Montebello, CA (June 1, 2009): TASCAM's best-selling CD-160 CD player has been updated to the new CD-200. The new player uses a brand new transport, the TEAC CD-5020A. The new transport is custom designed for audio playback with a smooth loading drawer and low clamping noise. The internal clock has been improved for a smoother sound and decreased jitter.
"Like most manufacturers, TASCAM has had difficulty finding CD transports that can record and play CDs at audio speed," said Kenji Matsu, International Business Manager for TASCAM. "Fortunately, TASCAM's parent company, TEAC, is one of the premier drive manufacturers in the world. We worked with TEAC to create a new drive mechanism that could be used in future CD products, the first being the CD-200."
Like the CD-160, the CD-200 has unbalanced phono outputs and S/PDIF digital out on coaxial and optical jacks. MP3 and WAV file playback is supported, and front-panel Folder navigation buttons are provided. A wireless remote control with numerical track select buttons is also included.
TASCAM is the professional audio division of TEAC Corporation and produces the most comprehensive line of audio recorders, mixers and related equipment in the pro audio industry. TASCAM has offices in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Latin America. For additional information, contact:
