All-in-one professional MP3 player with SD Card slot and USB 2.0 slot.
The Media Operator from American Audio is an ideal solution for controlling MP3 tracks in retail locations, buildings, restaurants, basically any installation where an easy, reliable way to manage digital music is needed. It's great for mobile entertainers too, with full playback control similar to most professional CD players. Its pro features include Seamless Loop, Tempo Lock, Pitch Control (±4%, ±8%, ±16%), Pitch Bend, Repeat Mode, and an Auto BPM Counter.
This all-in-one, simple-to-operate professional MP3 player is equipped with both an SD Card slot and a USB 2.0 slot. The SD slot is designed to read SD cards up to 4GB and does not accept SDHC cards (SDHC cards can be read via the USB reader). With a 1GB SD Card having the capacity to store up to 1000 MP3 tracks, the Media Operator makes it possible to play and manage a vast library of digital music from one compact, simple-to-use rackmountable unit.
Folder and track search knobs make it quick and easy to find the MP3 track you're looking for. A bright, user-friendly LCD display on the front of the unit shows MP3 track listings, as well as Single/Continue and Time viewing. The Media Operator also features American Audio's Advanced Cueing, with track searching done by the frame rather than by the second for greater pinpoint accuracy.
The Media Operator includes Master Volume Control, as well as a microphone input (XLR / 1/4" combo). Additionally there are two line out options, XLR and RCA. This allows you to plug the unit directly into powered speakers or an amplifier through the balanced XLR outs, or go to a preamp mixer using the RCA outputs.

I owned the SDJ-1, the earlier version of this, and liked it a lot, but this unit offers a mike input and volume control, plus the ability to play from flash drives. It also takes up only 1 rack space. It improves on the SDJ-1 by providing separate search knobs for both folders and tracks. Extremely easy to use, sturdy and reliable, and handles the HC SD cards famously. Only improvement I can think of is to provide searchability other than by turning the search knobs, i.e., via keyboard, but that's probably unrealistic.
Took a chance on one of these for home use as an alternative to firing up my PC when I wanted to play mp3s. Unit functions/sounds better than expected. Folders & files are not difficult to locate, although obviously not as easy to retrieve as with a PC (scrolling text & no graphics). Storage device (I use a USB flash drive) must contain ONLY mp3 files and be formatted FAT32. Max # unit will support is 999 folders containing 999 files each (according to mfr tech support). Unit is a bit pricey, but works well, so I ain't complainin'...
