Features: Built-in CD player eases CD->MD copying. "REC-IT" button on remote, pushed while listening to CD, will seek to start of current CD track and record one track to MD, putting the MD unit in pause when finished. The unit's CD "loop mode" and MIC input can be used for making DJ type dance mixes. When playing a CD, the loop button on the remote will cause the next "phrase" of the song to be repeated, the looped phrase can be repeated up to 5 times. After the loop completes replay continues in one of two user selectable ways: as if the loop had been inserted in the song (normal mode), or as if the loop had overwritten the song (rhythm mode). Example:

	a|b|c|d|e|f|g|h		original
	a|b|b|b|b|b|c|d		normal (insert)
	a|b|b|b|b|b|g|h		rhythm
