DN-500CB

CD/Media Player with Bluetooth/USB/Aux Inputs and RS-232c


The DN-500CB is a highly-versatile yet affordable media player that excels in applications where users bring their own devices for education, instruction or entertainment. The DN-500CB plays not only CD media but provides Bluetooth connectivity, USB playback and a 3.5mm AUX input for connecting virtually any other playback device.

Like all 500 series Denon Professional media players, the DN-500CB offers an RS-232c port on the rear for control via serial command and the serial command protocol guide is available for download.

Perfect for retail, education, and hotel/conference applications, this player offers features normally found on higher-priced players, such as Bluetooth Pairing, Front Panel Lock, Power On Play, direct access to tracks, memory of settings after loss of power, and balanced XLR output.
