Yamaha Electronics Corporation unveils three new external models in its revolutionary CRW-F1 family of CD recorders, introducing Yamaha’s sleek, exhilarating new look for its external models.
Designed specifically to enhance the style and appeal of the contemporary computer workstations, Yamaha’s all new CRW-F1 external models are not only geared to provide easy connectivity, reliable performance and high-quality top-speed CD recording, but also become an appealing, decorative part of any work environment.
Available in three models, CRW-F1 family’s external models will be available as: 1) A Dual Interface model featuring both FireWire and USB 2.0 connections (model CRW-F1ZDX); 2) A USB 2.0 model (model CRW-F1ZUX); and 3) An Ultra SCSI model (model CRW-F1ZSX).
“Whether you are a Mac user or a PC user, CRW-F1’s extraordinary features and technologies are now available to you regardless of your computer’s interface or operating system.” states Allen H. Gharapetian, general manager, Multimedia Products Division, Yamaha Electronics Corporation. “The Dual interface model, featuring the popular FireWire connectivity, is ideal for Mac users while the USB 2.0 model will connect to any PC compatible thanks to its backwards compatibility with the industry-standard USB 1.1 interface”
Designed from the ground-up as an external model rather than just another internal CD recorder boxed inside a crudely designed external enclosure, CRW-F1 models come with all the features and performance qualities associated with the internal models. All external models feature Yamaha’s revolutionary DiscT@2TM Laser Labeling System (which allows graphics and text to be burnt onto any CD-R disc), 24X CD-RW ReWriting with full Mt. Rainier support and the exclusive CD-RW Audio Track Edit system, Yamaha’s award-winning Safe-Burn buffer underrun prevention technology with 8MB of buffer memory, jitter suppressing Full-CAV writing technology, and Yamaha’s class-defining Advanced Audio Master Quality Recording System for mastering studio-quality audio and data CDs.
“Because of its performance, reliability and dozens of exclusive features, Yamaha’s new CRW-F1 series is ultimately the world’s most complete CD Recording device,” states Gharapetian. “The fact that it is available in this attractive, contemporary new enclosure makes it the world’s most appealing CD Recorder as well”.
The new external design features a florescent white on/off indicator light, as well as an elongated blue LED indicator, stretching across the entire width of the tray opening via a curved, custom-designed light-pipe. The new enclosure is also designed to be stackable for multiple unit connectivity.
The CRW-F1 external models will be available in August 2002, beginning with the USB 2.0 model. The dual interface FireWire/USB 2.0 model and the SCSI models will follow shortly.
