Professional Dual CD/MP3 Player


Rock solid and loaded with features
CDN88 MP3 is the professional DJ's selection in high-performance CD players. This feature-packed, dual-deck unit not only plays traditional CDs and MP3 CDs, but it gives you capabilities not seen on many other rack-mount players. This update to Numark's well-known CDN88 adds MP3-playback capability, complete with text display, so you carry more music on fewer discs.

You can scratch in real time using CDN88MP3's dual jog wheels and create two different seamless loops with three hot-stutter starts each for extensive creative capability. You also get 12 DSP effects with direct access including reverse for masterful manipulation. You can even stack multiple effects to get really wild.

CDN88 MP3 contains Key Lock, (similar to Master Tempo) which enables you to speed up or slow down the music +/-100% without changing the pitch. Numark's exclusive Beatkeeper aids in visual beat matching so you can spend less time in headphones and more time creative the perfect party or event soundtrack. And speaking of making things easy for you, CDN88 MP3's Interlock function automatically beat matches the two decks for you for those times when you just need get to the next song.

If you need to pitch a track up or down, you can quickly get exactly where you want to be with +/-6, 12, 25 and 100% pitch ranges. And speaking of getting where you need to go, CDN88 MP3 saves up to 3,000 cue points in its memory!

What happens when the dance floor get jumping™ CDs can skip. Not a problem with CDN88 MP3. From the company that introduced DJs to Anti-Shock, CDN88 MP3 contains a massive 48-second buffer so you can crank those subs with confidence that music will keep pumping.

CDN88 MP3 is housed in a super-rigid metal extrusion so it's ready for the road. When you get to the gig and pop the cover, you won't have to worry about your CD player. To further expand CDN88 MP3's durability, its drive unit features a tray-loading system. This type of media rack is substantially more professional than slot-loading units because dirt and grime on the drive slots can degrade your CDs' performance as they are dragged across. Since mobile DJs can find themselves in less-than-ideal light conditions, CDN88 MP3 has transport-bay illumination, and its rubber buttons give you slip-proof security.

CDN88 MP3 is built for years of reliable performance. To further extend its lifespan, it contains a laser-saving sleep mode.

CDN88 MP3 gives you high-speed, rotary track search on its jog wheels for quickly scrolling through your music. You can easily program a sequence of tracks, and its adjustable startup and braking speeds help you fine-tune your performance.

If you have a compatible Numark mixer, you can even remotely start playback with CDN88 MP3's fader start and relay function.

CDN88 MP3 is designed for the professional DJ who needs reliable performance in a CD player. It contains powerful processing and performance features not found on other CD players. Step up to the best with CDN88 MP3.
