Product Description

The CDR500 offers stand-alone recording from any analog or digital source while also being able to perform high speed (2x) duplication for the internal CD player. A dual playback mode is available, which allows simultaneous playback of both the recording and playback drives to separate outputs.

The CDR500 is compatible with pro and consumer CD-R and CD-RW discs. Track titles can be saved and edited in CD-TEXT format that can be read on CD-TEXT compatible CD players. Its Memory buffer prevents the beginning of tracks from getting cut off and it also provides digital and analog record level and balance control. Other features include menu-selectable SCMS copy protection, balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) analog inputs, coaxial and optical digital inputs, and unbalanced (RCA) analog and coaxial digital outputs, including coaxial loop-out for unprocessed connection to other digital equipment. IR remote control included.

Stand-Alone Duplication
Make perfect digital copies of CDs and CD-R/CD-RW discs without resampling through A/D converters.

CD-Text Generation
Create and edit track and disc titles with simple input controls. These titles are saved as CD-Text that can be viewed on CD players and recorders that support the CD-Text format (such as Marantz Professional's PMD330/331/340 CD players).

Accepts Multiple Disc Formats
The CDR500 accepts CD-R and CD-RW discs, including 1X-speed discs for computer use. This wider choice in media offers greater flexibility and additional cost savings.

Record Level and Balance Control
The CDR500 offers both digital and analog record level and balance controls. This lets you easily control any input source and ensure that tracks on music compiliation discs share the same volume levels.

Selectable Copy Protection
Bypass SCMS copy protection when duplicating a disc. Or set your own copy protection at the level you decide.

Professional Inputs
Includes balanced (XLR) analog inputs with trim adjustment, unbalanced (RCA) analog inputs, and coaxial and optical digital inputs.

Other Features
Sync mode for automatically duplicating CDs, MiniDiscs, and DATs

Automatic sample rate conversion handles any source from 11 kHz to 56 kHz and converts it to the CD standard 44.1 kHz. (44.1 kHz Sources bypass the sample rate converter)

Memory buffer that prevents the beginning of tracks from getting cut off

Auto Stop Control that allows dynamic sources such as classical music to be recorded effectively

2x speed disc finalization

Program up to 99 tracks to play in any desired sequence

Coaxial digital input includes loop-out for unprocessed connection to other digital equipment

RC5 remote control input for installed (AMX/Crestron compatible) controllers

Recommended CD-R Media
When selecting a disc for use with your CDR500, the general rule is that any disc manufactured to industry specifications (data disk included) will work with the burner. However, there are many discs that are either borderline or out of spec. In this instance, you may experience higher failure rates during the initialization, record, or finalize process. Marantz has tested and recommends medium grade and premium grade discs from the following brands:

Maxell
TDK
Sony
Mitsu
Taiyo Yuden

These discs will typically cost between 50 to 75 cents per disc and are readily available from major retail outlets.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
