Summary: I bought 4 of these- after first week of use, one developed a loud hum in the audio outputs, one won't recognize a disc, and none of them will read the USB stick reliably. Gemini tech support took 45 minutes to answer and could not help. Please don't make the same mistake I made.
Summary: I really needed a 1U cd player for my rack, and like most did not want to pay the high price. Bought this unit and it looks and works fine, but a few could be better.... 1. Takes a while to load and read a CD (around 10 secs), might be a bug for DJ'n. 2. Can't search USB tracks while playng a CD track. 3. Pitch knob works backwards, manual says turning clockwise increases pitch, but in reality it decreases. 4. Manual is hard to follow.
Good product, so-so manual, questionable support from Gemini

Summary: Overall, I'm very pleased with this player. I bought it to use during band practice; we're a cover band and often need to cue up a song to listen to some subtleties. This unit is a little counterintuitive to use at times, but is working well and has a good set of features. The abilities to repeat on a track or disk basis, to cue to a precise location, to loop over a precise section of a song, and to play MP3s while showing their file name on the display are all pluses...
Summary: Works as advertised. CD is fine, of course. Loaded up a bunch of WAVE files on a 8 gig USB stick, the CDMP-1400 recognized and was able to play all files flawlessly. Sounded good. Single rack space, important in Prosound, we take less gear to each show. I will be buying more of these.
Summary: Have been using the unit for about one week so I can't make any claims about the durability yet. The unit is solidly built and has a lot of good features. I'm pleased with the way it reads USB Memory sticks, USB hard drives and USB DVD drives. They all work good and search times were not excessive. Pitch control works with USB drives as well as the CD. Slot loading CD Drive is an advantage (no tray to jam) if it is durable.
Summary: I purchased this Product on 11-24-09. Right off the bat the CD player did not work. Gemini likes to do all their own service work. I had decided that I did not want this unit if it is going to have problems. After a long two month back and forth with Gemini. Gemini would not give myself or the company that I purchased the unit from a credit. Stating that they did not know if the consumer did the damage. I did not use this CDMP-1400.
