A Multitalented Unit, that can playback or copy LP’s, Cassettes and Radio Programs to CD
LP’s or 45-singles covered by dust sitting in a corner of the basement? Treasured recordings on audio cassettes in a shoe box somewhere that hasn’t been heard since years? Those days are gone! PC freaks have been recording their analog audio music in digital formats and “burning” CDs since years. But for all those who don’t want to have to become a PC freak but still get the task accomplished, TEAC has manufactured the LP-R500. This unique model is a 3-speed turntable (33, 45 and 78rpm), a cassette playback deck, an AM/FM radio and a CD Recorder/Player all in one, classic wooden console.
The LP-R500 is the ideal piece of audio equipment for anyone who would like to preserve all his old vinyl records by recording them once again using modern digital technology and transferring the music to a CD which can be played in any CD player anywhere at any time. Just put on a record or insert a cassette, cue it to where playback should start, insert a blank, recordable CD into the CD-Recorder and press the record button … that’s all there is too it.
Record the whole album or select individual songs using the pause control. The recording level and track numbers can both be individually set automatically or manually and appear in the display. Off air CD recording from the built-in radio is easily possible. Connect any other external analog source to the AUX inputs on the rear panel and record the content onto a recordable CD. LP-R500 is completely remote controllable and can also be simply used as a multitalented playback artist for all its integrated sources as it also contains its own stereo amplifier and two built in monitor speakers.
Replacement “needles” for the turntable are available as optional accessories at additional cost. Stereo line outputs are mounted on the rear panel which allows using any of the built in sources as an external signal source which can be connected to the line inputs of almost any additional external amplifier. A remote control unit is provided as a standard accessory.
