Main Features

You can record from the analog inputs while monitoring the level on the front-panel fluorescent display. Compact discs are clamped onto a center-mounted drive mechanism for minimal vibration, reducing jitter distortion for clearer sound.

As well as the previous CD-RW890, the CD-RW890MKII also functions as a full-featured CD player, with multiple playback modes and a S/PDIF optical input. It includes a wireless remote control. There’s no more affordable CD recording than from the industry leader, TEAC’s CD-RW890MKII. And new feature, “Time-based Track Creation” is available on CD-RW890mkII.

Record to audio CD-R/RW

The CD-RW890MKII equips Digital Optical input port and Analog Line input RCA ports. This product is capable of recording to audio CD-R/RW media from both analog and digital audio sources.* The CD-RW890MKII digital input supports PCM 32kHz, 44.1kHz and 48kHz sampling rate, and records with 44.1kHz automatically, that is the standard of audio CD sampling rate.

* SCMS (Serial Copy Management System) digital copy control may prevent digital dubbing.
And the recording level can be adjusted only when the INPUT SELECT is “ANALOG”, and you can monitor the input source via the PHONES jack and the output terminals  
The auto track function senses intervals and increments track numbers, and Time-based Track Creation  (A-TIME) function is available

Auto track is a handy feature that detects silent intervals when dubbing records or cassettes to CD-R/RW, automatically incrementing track numbers. This significantly reduces the time and labor associated with manually assigning individual track numbers while listening to each track.

* Track numbers may not be assigned correctly if the silent interval is very short or if tracks feature excessive noise.
A design philosophy that emphasizes ease-of-use and audio quality

With the display and power switch on the left and the control buttons and headphone jack located on the right, the design ensures ease of use. The CD drive is located in the center to minimize unwanted vibrations that could affect audio quality.

The synchronous recording function starts recording automatically at the start of a track 

This handy feature begins recording automatically on receiving an audio signal (analog or digital) from a device like a CD or MD player, then halts recording when the signal stops.

Time-based track creation can be set every 1-10 minutes.

This method is preferred in some applications – such as conference recording, when there is no gap between segments (like when recording music).
