Just drop in a CD and press the Play button. The front-loading drawer closes automatically and playback begins.
16-track programmable Playback
Up to 16 selections (including repeats) can be easily programmed into the DX-1500 for playback in any order you like.
Advanced 3-beam laser pickup
The DX-1500's advanced 3-beam laser pickup has been designed for positive and precise tracking of the "pit lane" encoded on Compact Discs. The main laser beam is guided by two sub-beams which track on either side, using highly responsive electronic servo circuitry to keep the main laser on course. The pickup assembly is driven by a linear motor for extremaly fast access time.
High performance LSI's Improve Precision and Stability
The servo control, digital, and D/A sections have been engineered onto specially designed LSI's to simplify signal paths and improve the precision and reliability of signal transmission for faithful reproduction of CD. Along with specially chosen high-quality electronic components, they have been integrated onto a single circuit board which is insulated from the main chassis to avoid electromagnetic interference which can degrade sound quality.
