Denon Pro Dual-Disc CD Recorder Meets Demand

The Denon Electronics DN-C550R dual-drive combination CD player/CD-R/CD-RW recorder shown at the 11th AES convention was developed by the company in response to the rising popularity of dubbing and recording CDs. The DN-C550R makes it simple to create CDs in one, all-inclusive unit.
Professional features include balanced XLR inputs and coaxial S/PDIF inputs (SCMS defeatable), as well as a second drive for pro dubbing and playback of CDs.
Drive 1 can be used as a dedicated playback deck and accepts both pro and consumer CDs, CDRs and CD-RWs. It also supports playback of HDCD encoded discs with a built-in HDCD decoder.
Drive 2 can be used as either a CD-R/CD-RW recorder or as a second playback drive, with the same playback functions as Drive 1.
Both drives are PC/data disc-compatible and the analog and digital inputs of Drive 2 are SCMS defeatable. The analog XLR inputs feature 24-bit A/D conversion. Digital coaxial or optical inputs are included. Using the internal digital sampling frequency converter lets the DN-C550R convert 32 kHz and 48 kHz rates to CD-standard 44.1 kHz. A text input feature allows disc and track names to be entered for display on the unit's easy-to-read front panel.
The DN-C550R is housed in an aluminum-faced 2 RU rack-mountable housing. Price: $850.
