More Features:

CD Recorder That Meets the Demands of Professionals

Independent input trim controls for Left and Right and Digital Input Trim

Both the left and right analog inputs have their own analog input gain controls. In addition, the digital input can be controlled for optimal recording levels from a digital source.

Selectable Track Division Functions

The CD-RW900SX has a variety of track division functions.

- Automatic Track Division:
DD(digital direct)
Detects a track boundary and divides the track when recording digitally from MC or CD.
Time (Time track increment)
Time-based track creation can be set every 1-10 minutes. This method is preferred in some applications like conference recording, or when there is no gap between segments such as recording music.
A track marker can be created based on the input level, adding a new track when the input falls below a specified level (from -24 to -72dB).

- Manual Track Division:
A new track can be written manually by pressing the RECORD key while the unit is in record mode.

Various Other Functions for More Versatility

SRC (sampling rate converter) accepts different incoming frequencies from the coaxial and optical inputs.
Synchronized recording will begin automatically when a signal is received and will stop when the signal ends. The rec mute function allows instant cut-off the input signal and records four seconds of silence on the disc.
Fade-in and fade-out recording and other various useful functions have been added to the CD-RW900SX for more versatility.

Comprehensive Playback Features Create the Ideal Professional CD Player

In addition to recording, the CD-RW900SX is a full-featured and industrial grade CD player. Functions including auto-cue, auto-ready, pitch and key control, power-on playback, repeat function including A-B repeat and single/program/random playback.

Transport Control via P/S2 Keyboard

It is also possible to control the transport via a P/S2 keyboard (sold separately).

Shockproof Memory Prevents Skipping Due to Vibration

A RAM buffer stores audio data in memory to ensure smooth playback, even if a shock or vibration lasts for up to four seconds.

Equipped for audio use CD transport with specially-designed firmware

Slot-loading Transport With Gapless Continuous Recording

The new transport was designed for audio use – not a re-packaged computer drive.
Improved firmware allows the transport to write track markers without a gap, for seamless continuous live recordings.

Disc Forced Ejection (emergency) Function

If pressing the EJECT key does not eject the disc because the CD is defective, there is a key hole to force the disc to eject.

A Selection of Inputs and Outputs to Fit Any System Design


Unbalanced analog and S/PDIF coaxial and optical connections are provided for connection flexibility.
