Tascam’s Versatile Media Player Hits the Mark for Audio Professionals

CD 400UDAB

Tascam, long known for their versatile recorders and players for the professional integrator and pro audio markets, have introduced their CD-400UDAB media player. Combining a slot-loading CD player, FM/DAB+ tuner, SD/USB player and Bluetooth wireless connectivity, the CD-400UDAB offers audio playback from many sources. A 3.5-mm auxiliary input admits additional audio from external sources such as MP3 players or smartphones and tablet computers without Bluetooth. Morover, the unit can record: from CD or the FM/DAB+ tuner to CD or to USB media.

The CD-400UDAB provides professional-class XLR balanced outputs, RCA unbalanced main outputs, and a second set of RCA unbalanced outputs dedicated to the tuner. A high-quality 6.3-mm stereo headphones output enables quick and easy silent monitoring and confirmation of operation. A two-line backlit LCD displays the settings for easy programming and operation.

The CD-400UDAB can be controlled remotely by RS-232C or the included infrared remote control. An optional Ethernet card (IF-E100) is going to provide control over Ethernet in a future release. Once configured, a panel lock function can disable the front buttons to avoid unauthorized operation or programming. And a power-on play function automatically starts playback as soon as mains power comes up. These features combine to ensure tamper-proof, foolproof, automatic operation.

Tascam have managed to concentrate all of these media sources, recording features, and professional connectivity in a space-saving 1U rack design with an understated black facade. Its combination of form, features, and easy, reliable operation makes the CD-400UDAB a terrific choice for institutions, retail, schools, music venues, restaurants, and many more.
