Overview: The TASCAM CD-200BT is a rack-mountable professional CD
player with built-in Bluetooth 3.0 technology, allowing you to wirelessly
control and play audio from a computer or portable device that supports
Bluetooth streaming. In addition, a front panel 3.5mm minijack Aux Input is
provided for connecting a device that does not have Bluetooth. The player comes with a
wireless remote control, and with rack-mount ears installed. There are multiple
outputs to choose from, including analog RCA connections, as
well as optical and coaxial digital outs. The unit also has a 1/4" headphone
output with a level control.

the pitch by operating the pitch control buttons on the front panel or the
remote control. Each press of the Plus or Minus button will raise or lower the

has a 10-second memory buffer.
Bluetooth: The CD-200BT's built-in Bluetooth receiver allows
audio playback from a variety of Bluetooth-compatible devices, such as laptops,

control over the portable device.
