Tascam CD-A580 V2

The Tascam CD-A580 V2 makes the most of two highly popular consumer audio formats, audio cassette and audio CD, by combining them with a USB memory recorder/player into an attractive package that delivers both functionality and value. You can use either source for playback, record to cassette or USB memory, or take advantage of dubbing features to create copies from CD or cassette.

The unit has unbalanced RCA inputs and outputs and a headphones output with level control. It is perfect for installations in halls, hotels and restaurants, for DJs, band rehearsals, dance/sports facilities and more. Wireless remote control is also included.
