The CDR800 three-disc carousel CD recorder incorporates MP3-CD playback and the ability to burn virtually any audio source onto recordable audio CDs. Have a disc of MP3s you want to pull songs from for a compilation of music from other commercial CDs? No problem. The end result is unlimited combinations for compiling music mixes for everyone from music aficionados to amateur DJs.
The CDR800 lets you easily program more than 90 tracks for recording compilations and uses two recording speeds for convenient internal recording (1x and 2x). Engineered to be future-proof, the CDR800 is designed for easy upgrading to even recognize new music formats.
In addition to recording, the CD recorder has a four-disc changer mode that uses all decks for playback or shuffle to provide longer listening pleasure. Additional features include: recording on CD-R and CD-RW discs, two separate decks (recording and playback), and the ability to let you add customized text to your recorded CDs.
Focusing on quality and the integrity of the music recorded, Philips Continuous Laser Calibration ensures that CD recorder maintains maximum write quality by continuously adjusting the laser power. The unit also employs a sample-rate converter that automatically converts audio signals with different sampling rates to the CD standard (44.1 kHz). To further ensure accurate copies, the model's drives use AudioCore with Philips' Bitsync technology, ensuring that no music information is lost during the recording process. Both decks will play back all audio CDs. A full-featured remote is included.
For compliance with legislation relating to unauthorized copying of copyrighted material, Philips' CDR800 includes the Serial Copy Management System (SCMS), which lets you make first-generation digital copies from original, copyright-protected CDs, but prevents your making a digital copy of a digital copy.
