TASCAM's award-winning shatters the price barrier to recording mixes and masters to Direct Stream Digital, Sony's 2.822MHz/1-bit "Super Audio" format that must be heard to be believed. The stereo recorder captures audio from 44.1kHz to 192kHz as WAV files. In addition, the breakthrough DSD recording format adds incredible detail with all of the depth and imaging of quality analog recording. The DV-RA1000HD records directly to a 60GB hard drive or to a CD/DVD optical drive, and DVDs or CDs can be made from hard drive playlists. A USB 2.0 connection allows direct transfer to computer without burning a disc. The rear panel includes balanced and unbalanced analog and digital connectors for just about any format. The rich-sounding analog converters are capable of recording DSD format audio - no additional hardware is required. Included with the DV-RA1000HD is a wired remote control for dependable punch-in. WAV audio can be processed with built-in 3-band EQ and multiband compression/limiting before burning to disc. Designed for recording studio mixdown, audiophile archival, live recording and installed sound, you can trust the DV-RA1000HD with your most treasured master recordings.
