We have several of these in use with our live sound reinforcement operation. They work well, and do exactly what they're supposed to do. This particular unit has an unbalanced output. There is another model that has a balanced output. We found that it was cheaper to purchase the unbalanced model and use external transformers to get a balanced line.

This is the single worse piece of electronic equipment I have ever purchased. The sound is "fuzzy" through my pre-amp and amp and, just to be sure, the same is true listening through head phones plugged directly into the unit itself. I should have returned it but, foolishly, I unpacked it and hooked it up expecting it to play without a problem, throwing out the packaging. Now I am stuck with it but hopefully people looking at a Tascam CD player or, I wouldn't be surprised, any other piece of equipment form this company, will be forewarned and avoid them.
