TASCAM's compact DR-08 portable digital recorder packs serious audio quality into a handheld dynamo that fits in your pocket. It captures audiophile-quality 96kHz/24-bit WAV files - or web-friendly MP3 files - to robust MicroSD media. The built-in microphones have a unique mechanism to change the width and angle of the elements, allowing you to tailor the pattern for the perfect recording. There's even a built-in kickstand for placing the recorder right where you want it. A pair of AAA batteries allows you to record for hours to the included 2GB card, then transfer the recording to your computer using high-speed USB 2.0. Like TASCAM's other best-selling portable recorders, the DR-08 has features like auto level control and a low cut filter for clear recordings. Add your own microphone or line-level source using the 1/8" stereo input. The DR-08 has loop and variable speed on playback, allowing you to slow down speed without changing the pitch to learn new music. There's also noise canceling and EQ functions for improved playback timbre. TASCAM's DR-08 is our most portable recorder yet. Whether you're a songwriter, live performer, business leader or sound designer, you won't want to step through your front door without the great-sounding TASCAM DR-08. Check out the optional WS-DR08 windscreen kit if you plan on recording outdoors. Also available from TASCAM is the DR-2d with upgraded specs and the unique dual recording mode as well as the affordable DR-07 .
