AES06SF: Tascam CD And Cassette Players Updated
CD-160mkII now plays MP3s as well as CDs

One of the industry's most popular and reliable CD players, the CD-160mkII from Tascam has now been updated to include MP3 playback. The latest CD-160mkII, while still retaining many features that made the original a mainstay for installed systems, now supports a new look and MP3 playback and comes equipped with both optical and coaxial digital outputs, 40-second anti-shock memory, single, all, and folder repeat (REPEAT ALBUM) for MP3 CDs.
Systems Contracting Channel Manager Patti Gunnell told us, "The CD-160 has been one of our most-popular, affordable CD players; the updated version CD-160mkII is everything contractors have come to expect from Tascam. It will no doubt become the first choice for playback system bids."

202mkIV - analogue technology survives into the digital age
Meanwhile, the 202mkIII, which Tascam say is a cost effective, rugged dual-well cassette deck designed to offer reliability, simplicity and audio quality, has been updated to the 202mkIV.
Along with many of the features which has made this deck a standard the new 202mkIV now provides dual auto reverse, 12% +/- pitch control on deck one, a front microphone input with level control, Dolby B noise reduction, and Power on Play.
Patti Gunnell had this to say, "It's not over 'til it's over. As long as the demand exists for the format we'll continue to improve our existing cassette based products."
