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 2.5mm 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.
