Tascam RC-20 now shipping
Japanese manufacturer Tascam is now shipping the RC-20 Direct Play Remote, offering instant playback through flash start to the CD-500 or CD-500B – the only CD players available with flash start capability.
A set of 20 push buttons on the remote play the first 20 tracks of a CD when plugged into the remote jack on the CD-500 or 500B. The remote includes space to label each track to help locate the target material, whilst a stop/load button is also available for preloading tracks and stopping playback. Housed in a remote 205mm width unit, the RC-20 has been designed for use in theatres, broadcasting and PA applications and other installations.
