I was in the market for a rackmountable CD/MP3 player. I had a two space unit I used at home but was looking for something more compact for my gig gear. The CDMP-1500 Single 1U CD/MP3/USB Player was an easy pick. It's compact, light weight and rack mountable. I love the fact that I can use portable media via USB and play tracks versus bringing in a load of CDs. Although the unit can handle a CD quite nicely, the flexibility of using a USB media device makes things very easy. I really like the fact that I can also plug in a mic for announcements and/or sing along. I'm sure it would also accommodate a 'play along' if you plugged in an instrument (I haven't tried this ...yet)

I work as a mobile DJ doing weddings for the last 20 years. I wanted a CD player as a back up for when a computer crashes to give me the ability to keep music playing if I have to reboot a computer and I also wanted it to use for playing music for outdoor wedding ceremonies since outdoor sunlight tends to wash out a computer screen making it darn near impossible to view the DJ program. There are a couple of problems with this unit - I purchased 2 units and the volume knob on one unit sometimes won't shut off all the way leaving audio playing thru the speakers so it won't be good to use to gently fade out a song. The next problem is you can't just go back and forth from CD and USB flash drive files playing music because every time you push the button to change the source of the file the unit needs to re recognize the music files. This unit is pretty heavy so it adds a lot of weight to my SKB rack. The last problem is that the viewing screen on the unit isn't adjustable for line of sight so you pretty much have to have your face at the same level as the unit to view the track file numbers and such. What I do like about the unit is that it's a single space rack unit that can play CD's as well as USB files and the price isn't too bad.

            Comments about Gemini CDMP-1500 Single 1U CD/MP3/USB Player:

            Tried to replace a 20 year old Tascam CD player with this Gemini unit in a syndicated radio production studio. We need to cue up 15 second segments, typically choruses of songs for radio reviews. Every other CD player in my world - including the one in my Subaru - allows you to hear 2x or 4x audio as you skip ahead. This one goes silent. rendering it unusable for this purpose. The manual is unreadable. I contacted customer support to see if there was a way to make this happen. The response was a prompt and polite - no. He said "do you mean like vinyl and cassette works?" [Sigh].

              I purchased this product to play CDs and USB flash drives it was my understanding that this would play a flash drive but it will not read them and it says "No USB" it is wrong. I tried 4 different flash drives with music MP3 wav files and on and on and none of them can be read by the machine it's rendered useless unless I just want to play CDs .. all of these flash drives work in my Gemini ASO 8 b l u (last month I bought two of them from Musician's Friend and they're fantastic and I couldn't be more pleased then I am with those) and they work in my car USB slot .. but none of them will work through this unit. I really don't know how they can say they tested this out before they packed it when it will not work out of the box¿ I am very very unhappy with this unit .. I would be very very happy if it would do what it says it does. Now I have to deal with all this headache of sending it back waiting another week to see what's going to happen. People love to take your money but they want to give you a garbage.

                  I have just had this unit one day but so far everything seems real good. The sound is great. The controls are intuitive. The transport drawer sounds solid (not loose and clunky like some). The line output is strong (and controllable). I especially like the pitch bend control so I can play along in different keys. And I really like that it takes only one unit rack space in my equipment rack.

                        The CD worked flawlessly with great sound. As far as playing MP3s it was no go. I formatted USB drives on two different PCs with NTFS, FAT and FAT32 per the info found on-line. None worked. Contacted their customer support, who got back promptly and quoted the manual. I returned it and ordered an American Audio Media Operator BT which worked flawlessly. No CD but I gained Bluetooth.

                            Great unit! I patch the 1500 to a mixer then to a stereo single space power amp. Plenty of headroom, almost flat EQ on the board thru either 15 or 12's passive EV's. Shure 57 Microphone thru XLR or 1/4; sounds perfect! MP3 and CD ready, very friendly unit and easy to ready display. It comes w/a 1yr warranty according to the manual so I may not have needed the 2yrs extended plan? Note: use it everyday for a few hours. if a unit has problems it will show in the first 1-2 weeks so make use. Great product, between 2 laptops and this unit I feel confident about an upcoming event. RCA or XLR out. I've had mine for 2 weeks; love it!

                                  I use this mostly for playing jam tracks, both from others and those I've recorded myself. The master and pitch controls add a great flexibility. Does exactly what they claim it would, at a very good price.

                                        I hooked this up directly to a stereo power amp in my basement workshop/man cave. I can plug in a memory stick for hours of music and when I want something new or to change it up I can play CDs. Compact unit that appears to be well built. Does what I want it to do.

                                          Poor QC. First one was defective and had to be returned for replacement.
