Versatile TASCAM CD-400U Media Player Hits the Mark for Audio Professionals


 Montebello, CA - December 2017... Long known for its versatile professional media players for the professional integrator and pro audio markets, TASCAM has introduced its CD-400U media player.


Combining a slot-loading CD player, AM/FM tuner, stereo SD recorder, and Bluetooth wireless and USB connectivity, the CD-400U offers audio playback in real time or from reliable fixed media. The unit also can record from CD or the AM/FM source to CD or to USB media.

The CD-400U provides professional-class XLR balanced outputs, RCA unbalanced main outputs, and a second set of RCA unbalanced outputs dedicated to the AM/FM source. An 1/8-inch auxiliary input admits audio from a variety of external sources, combining with the Bluetooth wireless input to accept sources such as smartphones, tablets, and more. A high-quality ¼-inch stereo headphone output enables quick and easy silent monitoring and confirmation of operation.

Once configured, a Panel Lock function can disable the panel buttons to avoid unauthorized operation or programming. A Power on Play function automatically starts playback upon power-up. These features combine to ensure tamper-proof, foolproof, automatic operation.

A standard RS-232C terminal enables external remote control. An optional IF-E100 Ethernet card will provide IP control over Ethernet in a future release. A two-line backlit LCD displays the settings for easy programming and operation.

TASCAM has 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-400U a terrific choice for institutions, music venues, retail, schools, restaurants, and more.
