Stanton a leading manufacturer of professional DJ equipment, has introduced two new models of rack-mountable dual CD players for DJs. The C.500 and C.501 will be available from authorized Stanton retailers this summer.
“The C.500 and C.501 are excellent examples of the depth of Stanton’s product line,” says Henri Cohen, Stanton’s Worldwide Director of Sales & Marketing. “While the C.500 provides an affordable, high-quality solution in dual CD players, the C.501 adds the capability of playing MP3s, making it a powerful addition for any mobile/club DJ, bar, restaurant, or musician/producer.”
The new C.500 is Stanton’s most affordable dual CD player, created for anyone requiring a simple, easy-to-use rackmount system. The C.500 offers easy jogwheel control over pitch bend/frame search. Club DJs will appreciate its ability to scan tracks quickly with +10 Track skip search. Pitch adjustment is offered in versatile +/- 4, 8 or 16% increments, while Auto Cue, Fader Start, and Relay Play capabilities lend a high degree of control for an affordable playback tool. For digital audio mixers and recording systems, a S/PDIF digital output is included.
Stanton’s C.501 takes the rugged design of the C.500 and adds some key features to dramatically increase its flexibility for pro DJs. In addition to standard audio CDs and CD-Rs, the C.501 plays back MP3 discs, allowing DJs to burn files of legally downloaded music and play them back anytime and anywhere they want. A 20-second anti-shock buffer prevents CD “skips” on the C.501, which offers the same jogwheel control over pitch bend/frame search as the C.500. Similarly, the unit also has +10 Track skip search, versatile pitch adjustment, Auto Cue, Fader Start, and Relay Play functions ,plus a S/PDIF digital output for connecting to digital systems.
