The CD-6010 offers top-of-the-line CD playback for any scenario. Designed with the Broadcast market in mind, this CD-player utilizes a tray-loading design, safety features and an emergency release function to accommodate all situations. By employing the CD-5010B drive, rated highly among audiophiles, the CD-6010 offers high-quality sound that is rarely matched in rack-mounted players. With CD’s still so widely used in the Broadcast, Installation, and Touring markets, the CD-6010 is specified.

Another unique feature of the CD-6010 is a monitoring speaker on the front of the unit – perfect for cuing-up tracks straight from the unit if installed in a remote area or closet. The CD-6010 also has 20 points of cue memory, 20 tracks of flash start, and supports Auto Cue, Auto Ready and Incremental Play. Furthermore, it features ±16% pitch control for CD playback speed and up to 100 discs of program memory.

A complete compliment of interface ports are found on the rear panel. Both XLR balanced outputs and RCA unbalanced analogue outputs are provided, as well as SPDIF and AES/EBU digital outputs. The CD-6010 can be controlled through RS-232C, parallel control, or an optional RC-3F footswitch.

With its variety of ease-of-use, safety and bonus features, the CD-6010 is a prime 2U rack-mountable CD player for any professional application.
