TASCAM Professional Combination CD Player and MiniDisc Recorder

TASCAM’s MD-CD1mkIII is the only combination CD and MiniDisc solution for contractors, broadcast and other installations requiring MD-format compatibility. Based on the bestselling MD-CD1, the new model adds new digital I/O, additional file playback from CD, an expanded pitch range for CD playback and more. For space-challenged jobs that need a variety of playback options, the MD-CD1mkIII is the perfect choice.

The CD player on the MD-CD1mkIII supports MP3 and WAV file playback in addition to standard CD or CD-TEXT discs. The MiniDisc can play or record in all major formats: SP, MONO, LP2, and LP4. Discs can be dubbed from CD to MiniDisc at up to 4x speed, and continuous playback can cycle from one transport to the other. Both the CD and MiniDisc include Auto Cue and Auto Ready functions.

On the rear panel, each transport has its own set of unbalanced outputs, plus coaxial and optical S/PDIF digital outs. The MiniDisc section has unbalanced inputs, coaxial and optical digital inputs as well. An optional balancing kit, the LA-MC1, adds XLR balanced I/O to the MD-CD1mkIII. It can be controlled using RS-232C, wireless remote control, or a PS/2 keyboard.

Packing hours of playback in only two rack spaces, the MD-CD1mkIII is the ultimate solution for cramped installations requiring the flexibility of MiniDisc.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. This warranty is only valid within the country the unit was originally purchased.

Except as specified below, this warranty covers all defects in material and workmanship in this product. The following are not covered by the warranty:

  • Damage to or deterioration of the external cabinet.
  • Damage resulting from accident, misuse, abuse, or neglect.
  • Damage resulting from failure to perform basic daily maintenance and/or calibration, or otherwise resulting from failure to follow instructions contained in your owner's manual.
  • Damage occurring during shipment of the product (claims must be presented by the carrier).
  • Damage resulting from repair or attempted repair by anyone other than TEAC or an authorized TASCAM service station.
  • Damage resulting from causes other than product defects, including lack of technical skill, competence, or experience of the user.
  • Damage to any unit which has been altered or on which the serial number has been defaced, modified, or removed.

This warranty may be enforced only by the original purchaser.

All parts except heads and disk drives are warranted for one (1) year from the date of original purchase for products not used for commercial purposes. For products used commercially, the warranty is ninety (90) days for magnetic heads & optical pickups, one (1) year for other parts, & ninety (90) days for labor.

TASCAM will pay all labor and material expenses for items covered by the warranty. Payment of shipping charges is discussed in the next section of this warranty.

Your unit must be serviced by an authorized TASCAM service station in the United States. (This warranty is not enforceable outside the U.S.) If you are unable to locate an authorized TASCAM service station in your area, please contact TASCAM. TASCAM either will refer you to an authorized service station or instruct you to return the unit to the factory.

Whenever warranty service is required, you must present both the original dated sales receipt and this warranty statement as proof of warranty coverage.

You must pay any shipping charges if it is necessary top ship the product for service. However, if the necessary repairs are covered by the warranty, we will pay return surface shipping charges to any destination within the United States.

Any implied warranties, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are limited in duration to the length of this warranty.

  • Damages bases upon inconvenience, loss of use of the product, loss of time, interrupted operation or commercial loss
  • Any other damages, whether incidental, consequential or otherwise

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts and/or do not allow the exclusion or limitations of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you.
