The TASCAM CD-601mkII is a fully-redesigned version of the radio-standard CD player. With its comprehensive remote control and flexible monitoring and playback options, the CD-601mkII goes far beyond the capabilities of traditional CD players for broadcast. The radio presenter can select between online play (on the air) and monitor play (pre-listen), controlling whether CD playback reaches the on-air mixer or the monitoring device.
The optional RC-601mkII remote control allows frame-accurate search using the jog wheel, direct location using numerical keys, index searches or flash starts. In addition, the CD-601mkII can save up to 10 cue points per CD, controlled directly using the Flash Start function. Many other features like pitch control, auto cue with five threshold levels, Auto Read and CD Text are all designed to reduce stress before the program goes on the air.
