Tascam CD-RW901MKII CD RECORDER
A Professional CD Recorder/Player with proprietary TEAC Tray-loading Transport
The CD-RW901MKII is a professional CD recorder that replace the best-selling CD-RW901SL. An AKM AK4528VM is employed for AD/DA conversion for clean and clear sound quality, while a new tray-loading transport manufactured by TEAC ensures years of reliable operation in the most demanding installations, allowing gapless recording that conventional PC drives can't. More recording features like Auto Track Creation help the operator create polished recordings without constant supervision.
With the CD-RW901MKII, balanced analog input/output jacks and external control terminals are included. Additionally, long-run continuous recording (and overlap recording) is possible by connecting multiple CD-RW901MKIIs with an accessory cable. An ISRC/RID code can be displayed to check the recording in a mastering studio. Whether used for PA/Sound Reinforcement playback, studio, mastering, or broadcast, the CD-RW901MKII is a TASCAM's latest generation of reliable CD recording and playback.
TEAC-made CD drive with customized firmware

Long-run continuous recording (overlap recording) is now available by connecting multiple CD-RW901MKIIs, while the ISRC/RID code display function allows the CD-RW901MKII to be used as a recorder/player for checking in a mastering studio.
The CD-RW901MKII is also perfect for professional acoustic settings such as PA and sound reinforcement, and the CD-RW901MKII is an optimal device to be used within professional acoustic settings like mastering studios and broadcasting stations.
The CD-RW901MKII could be enjoyed for many years in the respective environment.
