CD-A580 CD Player / Cassette Deck / USB Recorder

The CD-A580 makes the most of two highly popular consumer audio formats, audio cassette and audio CD, by combining them with a USB memory recorder/player into an attractive package that delivers both functionality and value. You can use either source for playback, record to cassette or USB memory, or take advantage of dubbing features to create copys from CD or cassette.
