Denon DN-M1050R - Release date is estimated based on the date found on the Denon product page. Fun fact the CXD2536CR Atrac IC supports CD + MD functions, given the robust I/O of the device it might be possible to graft a CD input to the unit.

Features: Synchro start with settable threshold, level sync track marking with settable threshold. Two modes for updating U-TOC: 1) manual: write U-TOC on eject, 2) auto: write U-TOC after every recording or edit. Editing functions include A-B erase, A-B insert [moves an A-B section to a point within another track (combines divide, move and combine)]. Cue points can be erased, rewritten or added to later. 11.6ms edit point accuracy. Undo function can undo 2 edit operations. Selectable/overridable SCMS codes. Keyboard with PS/2 connector may be attached for editing, recording, playback, program input, hot start, etc. Hot Start (w/optional ACD-26HM kit) for up to 20 tracks. Tracks can be loaded into Hot Start by detecting the Auto Cue level (-72/-66/-60/-54/-48/-42/-36 dB selectable in Preset mode). Sound can be loaded into Hot Start from any track location. Loaded tracks can be replaced with new tracks. Seamless Loop can be used during Hot Start playback. Jog/Shuttle wheel allows searches with 1 frame precision.
