TASCAM (NAB Booth #SL1516) announced the debut of the DV-RA1000 recorder. The new recorder can record up to 192kHz/24-bit, and features Sony's DSD format, for over 5 hours of CD-quality audio to DVD+RW for capturing performances or meetings. The DV-RA1000 can also operate as a professional CD recorder, recording standard audio CDs for studio or meeting room installations.
"Until now, recording high-resolution DSD audio has cost over ten-thousand dollars," reports Jim Bailey, product manager for TASCAM. "The DV-RA1000 drops this cost over 80 percent, making stereo audiophile recording attainable for anyone. It records to standard, affordable DVD+RW discs for high-resolution audio or to CD media for recording standard audio CDs. For the price that professional CD recorders sold for in the past, studios and installations can enjoy the best digital sound quality possible with current technology."
The TASCAM DV-RA1000 features digital recording formats from CD audio resolution all the way up to 192kHz/24-bit and DSD recording the formats used by DVD Audio and Super Audio CD. A rackmount stereo recorder, its front panel is designed to be user friendly and features professional connections. Its professional I/O includes balanced XLR connections, AES/EBU and SDIF-3, and it records standard CD-DA, .WAV and DSDIFF files to CD and DVD discs. Advanced features like a USB 2.0 connector, RS-232 serial control and multiband compression and EQ.
