    Anyone familiar with this player unit?

    Today I had to put one back together after a long distance move. All was successful except that I don't know precisely what cables go where. This is an older unit from 1998 with 3.5" disk as well as a CD unit. It has speakers, etc. Photos show back of control unit. Any help would be appreciated.

    It is QRS. You can get cable diagram on their website. Named differently , Concertmaster only for Baldwin.

    The Concertmaster was a QRS system with a Baldwin control head. I believe that QRS bought up Baldwin’s inventory and renamed them. The QRS version was called the Serenade Pro. There was also a Concertmaster CD unit, which only played CD’s, that QRS called the Serenade.

    As far as connections go, the audio outputs aren’t really stereo. The CD has the player info on one channel and audio on the other. So you just have to find the output RCA jacks for the speakers. If there is a Gulbransen KS1B unit, that gets plugged into the midi in port. It maybe labeled “record”, I forget.

    I downloaded the manual off of the internet, browsed through it quickly, checked the diagrams, fixed my errors, and voila...it works!

    Only existing problem is that the CD unit does not seem to work, but that's beyond my capabilities or desires. The 3.5" disk drive works fine. Yes, it has speakers and a separate driver unit for those.

    Now, if I can actually fit a humidity control system in there...I think I can...I think I can...
