HHB Communications has debuted the CDP-88, a 1 RU rackmount CD player that includes instant start RAM, shock protection and a digital output attenuator.
Discs are tray-loaded instead of via a front-panel slot, as the company says this can lead to disc scratching and dust contamination. It is compatible with 8 and 12 cm discs, and plays CD and MP3-CD from CD, CD-R and CD-RW discs. Facilities are included that allow the playing of un-finalized CD-R/RW discs and indicate error rates by way of the front-panel display. It uses 24-bit Delta Sigma D/A converters and analog and digital connectivity. Additionally, the CDP-88 syncs to Word Clock at any frequency from 32 to 96 kHz.
Analog outputs include balanced XLR and unbalanced phono connectors; digital outputs are AES/EBU and optical/coaxial S/PDIF. Remote-control facilities feature RS-232 and parallel remote connections; an infrared remote control comes standard and can be converted into a wired remote for single player control in multiple player systems.
Highlights include a fader start interface, track intro and outro display modes, frame-accurate cueing with jog sound, +/- 12.5 percent varispeed and displays for elapsed time, track time remaining and disc time remaining.
