Flexible Output Interfaces
The CDP-D12 is equipped with multiple output
interfaces to meet individual system needs.
XLR-type balanced and phono unbalanced
connectors are provided for analog outputs,
plus coaxial and optical digital outputs are also
Variable Playback Speed
The CDP-D12 allows the playback speed to be
adjusted within the range of ±12.5% in 0.5%
steps – this enables the duration of the audio
program to be adjusted in post-production and
on-air applications. The duration of the audio
program is displayed according to the
Auto-Cue Function
The auto-cue function skips the silent areas at
the beginning of an audio track and puts the
deck in pause mode. Users can choose the
threshold level of the audio to skip from five
preset settings: -72 dB, -66 dB, -60 dB, -54 dB,
and -48 dB.
Cue-Point Marking
Operators can mark a cue-point to immediately
start playback from any desired point.
Various Playback/Repeat Modes
In addition to normal playback, shuffle playback,
and program playback modes, power-on play is
also available. For each playback mode, three
repeat modes are provided: single-track repeat,
A-B repeat, and all-track repeat.
Sequential Playback
Sequential playback is available when multiple
CDP-D12 players are daisy-chained through the
‘Relay Play’ input/output interfaces. When the
first CD player reaches its playback end, a
control signal is sent to the second player to
trigger its playback automatically.
RM-DS11 Remote
Control Unit (Supplied)
The supplied remote control unit allows simple
and quick playback control of the CDP-D12
player. Both wired and infrared wireless control
is possible. The wired control capability is useful
when the CDP-D12 player is installed with other
CD players, and it provides comfort that the CD
players are operating when putting an audio
program to air.
Remote Control via RS-232C and
Parallel Ports
Shock-Resistant Design
The CDP-D12 is equipped with both RS-232C
and parallel ports, which allow remote control
of the CDP-D12 from another control system,
such as an external PC. The mixer-fader-play
command is also available through the parallel
For additional reliability, the CDP-D12 player
incorporates an ESP (Electronic Shock Protection)
function. Using a buffer memory with a
capacity of 2.6 seconds, this reduces unwanted
track ‘skips’ caused by external shocks or
Versatile Playback

CD-R or CD-RW discs as well as conventional
CDs. It also accepts both 8 cm and 12 cm CDs
without an adaptor.
