An Alesis Masterlink will do what you ask, although I'm not sure that's exactly what you have in mind.  There's still the problem of how to get the program off the iPod, and onto the HD.

GTD

That would be perfect if it was just a playback device....

Yep = http://www.whybuynew.co.uk/dj-equipment/numark-hdcd1-mp3-dj-cd-player-hdcd-1.htm

Don't need any of the DJ functionality.

I want something I can setup a variety of playlists for different kinds of functions (dinner music etc) and for between sets for different kinds of bands.

I would be great to know that you have the perfect music ready on hand at any given point in time.

Ideally I'd like to see:

2 RU

CD Tray, Large stop, play, cue and skip buttons.

Largish LCD for the HD player with large and simple, backlit menu navigation buttons. Front USB port for PC?mac connectivity.

Why not make it FW800...

Lets call it the "iRack"

Really its a simplifies version of the Numark

If anyone reading this takes the idea and manufactures one, at least do me the decency of sending me a free one!

My problem is finding pro quality CD players with wired remotes.  Our CD players generally aren't in line of sight for w/l remotes and sometimes there are multiple players in a rack.

Dedicated laptop or rackmount computer with Sports Sounds Pro for simpler things, and SFX or other theatrical playback/control software on a dedicated computer (pick your sound cards wisely) for the complex stuff.

I won't put a link here because I work for TASCAM, but we have 1U CD players with parallel control that you can make up your own remote however you want.

<mods : This thread already mentioned the CD player in question, hope this doesn't cross the line into advertising>

Again, the Denon DN-C620 fits the bill.  While the supplied remote is IR, there is also a 25-pin connector to which you can wire up whatever switches you want.  Or you can control the unit via an RS-232 port and Crestron or AMX.

Don't be fooled by the Denon name.  This unit is not consumer-grade.  Denon/Marantz seems to be pretty serious about designing and building this unit for the broadcast market.

Agreed. There is Denon, and then there is Denon Pro. A very big difference.
