The CDR-W1500 is a CD + CD-R/CD-RW recorder with separate CD and CD-R/CD-RW drives in a single unit to provide you with a variety of recording and playback options for CDs and recordable CD-R and CD-RW discs. Recording is possible not only from CDs but from externally connected analog sources as well. The CDR-W1500 offers the convenient Scan Rec Dubbing function that lets you scan for the tracks you want before you record them. Playback features include Dual Play, for independent playback from the CD and CD-R/CD-RW drives, as well as a wealth of recording/playback combinations that take advantage of the two independent drives. Sound quality, of course, is eminently supported by DENON's world-renowned audio.
