The Akai 1731D is a disc drive, specifically a CD-ROM (Compact Disc Read-Only Memory) drive. It allows a computer to read data and information stored on CD-ROM discs, which can hold large amounts of data and are often used for installing software, storing multimedia content, or archiving large amounts of data. The Akai 1731D is a legacy product and may be less common in modern computers, as newer drives using USB or SATA connections have superseded it. However, there may still be demand for this drive in older or specialized systems that require CD-ROM functionality.
Track system: 4-track, 2-channel, stereo/monaural system
