Numark unveils the HDCD1, a rack-mountable dual CD player with built-in hard drive. The HDCD1 can store an entire DJ collection for the ultimate in portability, organization, and convenience. MP3s and uncompressed audio files can be ripped from either of the built-in CD players, transferred from computer over USB, and even recorded from turntables and other sources through analog inputs.

Two jumbo displays with dedicated controls allow easy navigation for quick creation of playlists of entire music sets. A keyboard connection facilitates searching, and songs and playlists can be searched by title, artist, album, or genre. Complete song information is immediately available through the internal CDDB™ database, which is updateable via the internet. Included software allows file transfers between the HDCD1 and a computer for upload and back-up download, the ability to edit song and playlist data, and internet CDDB™ data searches for new files lacking information. Song lists may also be exported as text.
