The MD-CD1 combines CD playback and MiniDisc recording in a single rackmount unit. Each component has its own analogue and digital outputs so that both sources can be used independently, and there is also a combined output for continuous playback over both decks. It has a host of professional features, such as pitch control, MP3 CD playback with ID3 tag display, a computer keyboard connector for title editing and transport control, RS-232 control and an optional analogue balanced I/O board that allows it to be specified into a wide variety of applications. CDs can be played back at up to 16% faster or slower, and can even be played back faster without changing the pitch. Discs can be duplicated from CD to MiniDisc at up to 4x speed, and a wireless IR remote is included.
