We at Phonic FM are in the process of replacing some of our more elderly kit. In particular, our Tascam CD-01 CD players. Does anyone in the community have recommendations for new machines? What do you use? They’ll need to…
- Be robust, able to cope with the rough and tumble of 80+ people using them every month (the slot loading Tascams have always been a little delcate in this respect)
- Able to happily play audio burnt to CD-Rs (something the Tascam’s are quite fussy about)
- Countdown and pause at the end of each track
- Support fader/event start (ie, allow us to play/pause from the mixing desk)
Ideally they’d be 1u rack-mounted, but we’d consider table-top CDJ machines too.
