    To be on the S.A. Part of the world has some adavntages, and disadvantages as well; over here on most any gig that you provide sounds, stage, lights, and video you'll encounter some awkard and rare stuff while the event its starting and in progress; over here we have a lot of singers who always come at the last moment to do rare request like the ones that i would mention: the worst that i had is a request to connect via usb a hard disk drive that one of the singers of that particular event had with it, he saw that i had my laptop(wich handles only the lighting stuff) near my pa and asked for it to install over here wich of course i said No, and i explained to him why the laptop was over there and the use that it was taking for; so after that soon he comes back and request some usb port to plug his thumbdrive on wich he had his songs that he would sing; other "singers" come with their cell phones so via headphone i have to connect over the mixers and so on; some of them comes with dvd disc, and others with a normal cd; the awkard was a guy who came and request if i have an sd card player, cause he just had their music right into an sd card; so i was looking for a proper media player over my market and i havent found anything of the above in one single player; so i bought a lg portable dvd player that comes with usb port, sd, mmc reader, it reads dvd disc, cd disc, and mp3 players and its doing its job well; but i would like to change it over a more pro player regarding that portable looks that it has; has anyone over come across of somehting that can read all of the above on a1 or 2 space rack mount? Any hints on it? Thabks

    Often, unreasonable last minute requests are better handled with a single work that is the same in both Spanish and English... NO

    The portable dvd its working fine regarding the handle of usb, thumbdrives, an sd cards, but i want a more professional look, like some cd player that could be rackmountable and would accept besides the mp3, wav, a usb drive, and some sd card like the oprtable dvd one; djs over here use laptops, but i dont want to do that, so i'm looking for a device that have this kind of things, besides reading cds

      Invest in a $2000.00 DJ mixer with all those interfaces. Done.

    I can't think of anything in a rack mount configuration for $100... but you an find used laptops on line for about that much that should be able to handle most of what you need.

        Look for something like that. Search "rack CD player" on eBay maybe

              I bought a Teac CD200i a while ago, suggest looking at some others in this line. Mine has everything you are looking for except for the card reader but they do make a model with it; or you could get an external reader that interfaces with your iPod and transfer it to the there first. I picked up the Teac for $219 on eBay, the ones with the SD option weren't that much more but I had no use for one.


              I would stay away from Gemini, everything I have seen from them is crap.

            Thanks for the tip Rob_H, I'll check the teac website to see what they are offering

              Note that Teac just got purchased by Gibson for I think $52 million, I expect to see the good products discontinued and some look-alike products emerge. They also own either all of or a major stake in Onkyo.
