TASCAM introduced a pair of CD Players at this year's Winter NAMM show, based on a two-piece design.

The CD-X1500 is a CD player for mobile DJs, offering up features like scratch, brake, filter effect, 100% tempo range, tap BPM and more. The CD-X1700 adds features like MP3 CD playback with scratch and pitch bend, multiple hot starts, reverse playback, and much more. Both models are compatible with the new TT-M1, the "Turntable Magic" controller that allows DJs to control CD playback from their vinyl turntables.

The CD-X1500 has features for DJs like seamless looping, key original/master tempo, 3 hot start cue points and anti-shock buffer. It also includes a BPM count with TAP key, digital output, +/- 8, 16, 32 and 100% pitch control and a filter effect. The CD-X1700 adds a larger jog wheel, reverse playback, onboard multieffects, a +/- 100% tempo slider and a dedicated 10-second sampler on each side of the controller. The CD-X1700 plays back MP3-encoded CDs with the ability to scratch, pitch bend and change tempo.
