The powerful new 8-channel, 10-track unit now includes TRS and XLR connections

Zoom’s F8n Field Recorder is an 8-channel, 10-track portable digital recorder that incorporates several important changes over its predecessor, the F8. Eight locking mic/line Neutrik Combo™ inputs provide up to 75 dB of gain for the mic pre, which can now be accessed via TRS or XLR connector. Line level inputs and outputs operate at +4 dBu; a pair of balanced TA3 mini XLRs serve as the main outputs while a stereo 1/8-inch jack facilitates headphone use.

Audio files are recorded as WAVs at sample rates ranging from 44.1 to 192 kHz (16- or 24-bit), with support for 47.952 kHz and 48.048 kHz sample rates. Files are stored to SD/SDHC/SDXC cards and two card slots allow redundant recording for critical applications. The F8n’s Advanced Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters add a 1 millisecond delay to the audio path, avoiding clipping before audio is recorded.

A Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) generates time code at 0.2 ppm accuracy (output on BNC connectors). The F8n has the ability to record simultaneously via USB and to the internal SD card slots, and a “pre-record” buffer captures up to six seconds of audio before the Record button is pushed. The F8n can be powered using AA batteries, an AC adapter or a 9-18 VDC power supply via HR10A-7R-4S 4-pin connector.
