TASCAM Offers New Handheld Digital Stereo Recorder

At the 2016 AES conference, TASCAM introduced its new DR-100mkIII handheld digital stereo recorder, which delivers ultra-high resolution recordings up to 192kHz/24-bit resolution, with a 109dB S/N ratio.

The unit features temperature-compensated clocking and high-performance dual-mono AKM “Velvet Sound” converters and when combined with TASCAM’s HDDA microphone preamps, it delivers the ultimate in pristine, transparent recordings. It also includes support for SDXC cards of up to 128GB.

The DR-100mkIII features dual stereo mics in both AB and omnidirectional patterns for maximum versatility, two XLR/combo jacks, switchable phantom power, and a dedicated input level control for fast, tactile operation. And the DR-100mkIII’s dual battery technology utilizes a built-in Li-ion rechargeable as well as AA batteries, giving you extended recording times and the ability to change batteries on the fly.

Built for real world use, the DR-100mkIII features TASCAM’s exclusive Dual Recording Mode, which simultaneously captures a lower level safety track, to safeguard against unexpected source level spikes. And the DR-100mkIII is built on a rugged black aluminum chassis that's road-worthy enough for the most hardcore location duties.

The new TASCAM DR-100mkIII is available now at a street price of $399.99.
