    Great unit and would recommend it to anyone. The sound is great and it is very easy to use. I have it mounted in my studio PA rack and love the iPod tray. Works really well. The CD player works as it should. No other comments other than one needs to be care not to knock the iPod tray off by walking into it. Price is right too.

    Wish they made a remote controlled deck with KEY LOCK. Has an 1/8" input for generic MP3 players. Numark iDEC dock has a more solid IPOD holder than than the Tascam. ...Read complete review

                Use this CD player at our figure skating events. Love the ipod docking/charging feature. Only negative is that it takes 9 seconds to load/cue song..

                  I am well pleased with this unit for what I am using it for. The only Thing that I don't like about it that there is not an indicator light that lets you know the pitch control is on/off

                        This product is exactly what my customer wanted. The face of this unite is clean and well organized; Easy to understand and use.

                        The iPod dock and CD tray are sturdy and should hold up to years of use.

                        Sound delivery to the Amp is very clean.

                        Thanks for the great job.

                        I added a tube output stage to my Tascam-200i and it sounds amazing -- really centered sound stage with this setup. The iPod drawer is a big plus, but of course, much more musical detail is present when playing a CD. Overall, it's a great buy.

                          This unit is great. It simplifies the need for two pieces of gear by combining them into one. It's nicely designed and affordable. We've purchased several of them and they've always been very reliable.

                          This product is an overall decent CD player you would expect from Tascam. Works well, loads very fast and plays audio and mp3 CD with no issues. My only issue with this is that I wish the iPod audio source was outputted through the digital output as well. I bought it thinking that was an option as I have an all digital input preamp. This would have made this unit a force to recon with for the prices. Other than that no issues.

                                I bought this to put in my rack for small PA gigs. With the CD, I-pod dock and the additional mini-phone aux input I can play music from almost any source a client walks up with from the same unit. Works great. Delivery was as prompt as promised, I only wish the free shipping also included Hawaii, oh well the price of paradise. The pricing from B&H was excellent.

                                  1. Home stereo system, ready interface
                                  2. Enjoy iPod digital dock connection for music
                                  3. Lack of iPod media information displayed on the CD200i is a disappointment - i.e. not ready for prime time
                                  4. Remote lacks volume (output) control capability

                                  We use two decks for simultaneous playback for performances just in case. Using the remote to play both at one time is quite helpful.
                                  In our dance studios, choreographers can plug in their iPods and use the remote to control them instead of making trips back and forth to the player.
                                  The deck is used approximately 8 hours a day, 6 days a week.
                                  Rack mount ears are good for touring the decks in road cases.
                                  I would like this player to have single track playback mode

                                      I use this product at our church in the A/V booth. Like the fact that it has an Ipod dock. It is easy to hook up.
                                      I wish it had a slot for either memory sticks or SD Cards.

                                            For our Spinning studio, this works great as a space saving option for both CD and iPod users. Great sound as well.
