Tascam CD-500B is a slot-loading CD player with a new transport, featuring brushless motors and an edge-grabbing mech to prevent disc damage. A front-panel 10-key pad means instant access to CD tracks, and flash start is available for instant playback.




Perfect for installation, touring, house of worship and anywhere else rackspace is limited

 

The CD-500B is an extremely compact CD player available as a professional version. The slimline housing comprises a slot-loading drive with reliable brushless motor as well as a full set of functions ideal for small broadcast or recording studios, theatres, touring sound companies, fitness studios or any permanent installation.

Alongside the typical play and repeat modes, the player offers many functions for professional use, such as flash start, auto cue (search for beginning of track), auto ready (automatic pause at the end of a track), call (jump to the position at which playback was last started), pitch control (±16%) including the opportunity to alter the tempo while retaining the key, intro-check or fade-in/fade-out. In order to be able to integrate into media control devices and into permanent installations, there is a relay play function, fader start or event start capability, EOM signal and a serial port. Furthermore, the device can resume playback after being switched on again and can remember a variety of operating conditions after being switched off.

The CD-500B has balanced and unbalanced analogue outputs as well as optical, coaxial and AES/EBU digital outputs as well as a parallel port.


An edge-grabbing loading drive prevents disc from damage

An edge-grabbing slot-in loading mechanism is employed as part of the disk loading method. This mechanism inserts CDs by holding the circumferential area of the disc, protecting the disc surface from damage.
A front-panel 10-key pad enables you to select a track while the flash start playback feature will instantly play the selected track the moment you push the button.


A professional-grade player with a rich variety of audio control I/O

For audio input and output, analogue unbalanced RCA input and COAXIAL and OPTICAL digital outputs are available.
The external control method includes a Parallel I/O, an RS-232C serial control and a separately-sold RC-3F foot switch.
Other additional features include an anti-shock memory that realizes stable playback, a panel lock function, and an eject-block function during playback.
These thorough features play a key role in crafting a highly reliable facility and transmission systems.

 

Relay playback on two or more units

By connecting two or more CD-500 units with 3.5mm remote cables, automatic continuous playback one after another and alternating playback between two units are supported.

 

Versatile CD player for all kinds of situations

The CD-500 that simultaneously establishes a high level of reliability and rich variety of functions is a standardized CD player model that can be used in a wide variety of purposes, including wedding ceremonies, event halls, fitness clubs, minute taking in meetings, PA/SR sites, and recording studios.
