Tascam CD 302 Opinions.

Has anyone used the Tascam CD 302 CD Decks? If so, what are your opinions on this unit?

hi

i got a pair of these but i don't like them really , they have a very phasey bright sound when using the pitch away from zero and i just dont like the overall sound.
the newer tascams are better.
the build is pretty good and the switches and control surface is ok.
the scratch is poor sounding the brake effect ok.
four out of ten for me.
there are better units out there.

What version are you working with. I understand the version 4 worked out alot of the bugs.

I would have to agree with darrylfunk, I have used these in a shop a while ago and I didn't think mutch of them, go for pioneer dude! if you are going to play out in clubs etc buy a pioneer unit cos u need to know how to use one. Something like the CDJ500 Mk2 LTD is great and cheap second hand and if u go into a club that uses CDJ1000's u can just flick them in cdj mode instead of vinyl and be confident that your preformance will be top! And I dont think that they sound that bad. If on the other hand u want twin cd players my fave is the old Denon DN2000F Mk3, but this handles totaly diffrent from the pioneer. I used to use these denons ages a go and had a shock when I used a CDJ500 for the first time, takes a little time to get used to them but they are great. Hope this helps.

hi

they are not the very latest software update but the one before that.
we have a set of the newer ones in hire stock and they seem near identical to me but maybe less phasey.

denons sound a lot better.

Two More Controllers.



I won't have to worry about controllers for a while. This was another set wo the player. If they are not V4, the upgrade is free from Tascam. I can at least bring it up to date.

I think the upgrade goes in the player anyways. Four controllers on player. Hmmmmm, Y jack?


hahahhahahahhahhhahahhah

Ok, folks, I received the four controllers and the player today. I took out a vintage CD and got it going. The CD was "First Choice Greatest Hits". Doctor Love was the track for the listening. That's one I know very well.

So far, I have found that the overall sound is very acceptable. Remember, this is an older CD. I did work the pitch control since it seems to be an issue with other users. When adjusted with 8%, I didn't notice a phasing effect. I will do a more thorough workout later on. I initiated the scratch effect. I don't know about that one yet. I am so used to the 1200's that this takes some getting use to. However, there is no hold to slip on the wheels here. If you don't move the wheel in a rocking motion, the cd continue to play.

I will continue to play with the four of these. The ebay deal went smoothly and so far no issues with the unit thus far.
