Numark, the world's leading manufacturer of products for the DJ market, proudly announces the new MP302 rackmount CD player. Designed expressly for mobile DJs and club owners in search of a compact, rackmountable solution to a wide variety of music playback requirements, the new MP302 plays both standard CD audio and MP3 CDs, provides buffered Anti-Shock™ memory protection, delivers seamless looping, pitch control with a pitch bend wheel, balanced and unbalanced outputs, plus a digital output among its wealth of features.
With the ability to play both standard audio CDs and MP3 CDs, the new MP302 provides outstanding versatility. With support for the MP3 media format, DJs can now fit substantially more music onto a single CD; dramatically reducing the volume/weight of the music library they transport and making their work easier. The MP302 also features buffered Anti-Shock memory protection—ensuring the music will play exactly as it should, even when the dance floor is packed. And DJs will appreciate the ability to create seamless loops—for both CD audio and MP3 files as well as true buffered instant start and stutter start capability with settable stutter points.
Featuring separate "engine" and controller sections, the MP302's controller features an inviting user interface. Among its key attributes, the unit features twin, large, easy-to-read, backlit LCDs that include text display for identifying song names, BPM counters, and other pertinent information. The user-friendly MP302 also provides ± 8/16% pitch bend capability via its pitch bend/jog wheel. For programming one's music sets, the MP302 supports true continuous playback and is also track sequence programmable. And with support for both folders and ID3 tags, locating and identifying tracks is easy.
The new MP302 provides balanced and unbalanced output capability, plus a digital output for interfacing with external digital equipment. And with its fader start capability, the MP302 is a versatile player for a wide range of music environments.
With a suggested retail price of $699, Numark's new MP302 rackmountable CD player is an exciting tool for DJs who demand portability and MP3 file compatibility. The MP302 will be available Q1 of 2006.
