Denon's newest CD Player/Recorder is packed with many features allowing it to interface with the various playback and recording needs of many compact disc formats available today.  Drive 1 can be used for either standard CD playback or playback of HDCD discs via the built-in HDCD decoder.  Drive 2 can function as either a

CD-R/CD-RW recorder or a standard CD player.  The analog inputs of the CDR-W1500P feature full 24-bit A/D conversion for highly accurate recordings of analog sources with increased dynamic range.  Direct digital signal may also be used via the digital coaxial or optical inputs and, with the internal digital sampling frequency converter, can convert both 32 kHz and 48 kHz rates to the CD standard 44.1 kHz.  Furthermore, a special text input feature allows discs and track names to be entered for display on the units' easy-to-read front panel, allowing for instant recognition and simple documentation of discs.

Both decks of the CDR-W1500P feature a set of digital coaxial, digital optical and standard analog outputs featuring 24 bit Analog Devices D/A converters, allowing for a variety of recording and playback options.  Dubbing can be done in either real-time or at double speed, allowing for fast and seamless duplication made possible by the 44.1 kHz Direct Digital Dubbing feature (HDCD dubbing compatible).  Several different recording modes are also available to suit the users needs.  Scan Rec Dubbing Mode allows selection of specific tracks for recording, while Disc Dubbing Mode directly records all information, including HDCD data and user-input text, from one disc to the other.  A Synchronized Recording Function can be used to begin recording as soon as signal is seen by the unit.

A wide variety of playback modes are also incorporated into the CDR-W1500P.  A Repeat mode lets the user select one or all tracks from drive A and/or B for repetitious playback.  The Relay Play mode gives automatic, continuous play from drive A to drive B.  The Mix Program Play mode supports programmed playback of one or both discs, as the Mix Random Play mode plays random selections from drive A and/or B.

For unprecedented reliability and stability, the CDR-1500P features a linear-type transformer in the power section for optimum power calibration during use.  The unit comes housed in an attractive aluminum faced housing.  A 2U rack-mount kit is also included.

The CDR-W1500P is available immediately for the suggested list price of $749.00.
