By PSW Staff • July 9, 2009 The new TASCAM CD-200 player TASCAM’s popular CD-160 CD player has been updated to the new CD-200, which usas a brand new transport, the TEAC CD-5020A. The new transport is custom designed for audio playback with a smooth loading drawer and low clamping noise. The internal clock has been improved for a smoother sound and decreased jitter. “Like most manufacturers, TASCAM has had difficulty finding CD transports that can record and play CDs at audio speed,” said Kenji Matsu, International Business Manager for TASCAM. “Fortunately, TASCAM’s parent company, TEAC, is one of the premier drive manufacturers in the world. We worked with TEAC to create a new drive mechanism that could be used in future CD products, the first being the CD-200.” Like the CD-160, the CD-200 has unbalanced phono outputs and S/PDIF digital out on coaxial and optical jacks. MP3 and WAV file playback is supported, and front-panel Folder navigation buttons are provided. A wireless remote control with numerical track select buttons is also included.
