Tascam DR05MKII Handheld Portable Digital Recorder - Description

The DR-05 offers portable, high-quality stereo recording in MP3 or WAV format – including 96-kHz/24-bit high-resolution audio – using microSD or microSDHC media. A pair of A/B-oriented omni-directional microphones handles up to 125 dB SPL with the sensitivity to capture every detail. Users can also use their own microphone or line-level source through the mini-jack stereo input which includes plug-in power for microphones that need it. The DR-05 is quick and easy to use with one thumb. Operations like recording, adjusting levels, deleting bad takes and adding marks are only a button press away. Other features like limiting, low-cut filtering, Variable Speed Audition, chromatic tuner and others more can be chosen from the menu. The new Peak Reduction feature automatically reduces the level to prevent accidental distortion. It works in rehearsal mode or in record and can be combined with the built-in limiter. There is also a Level Align function that allows to smooth out any sudden volume jumps during playback, and a built-in speaker is provided for quick check-back. Internally, the DR-05’s digital and analogue circuit boards are built separately to increase noise performance, with a low-impedance design to further decrease hiss. A separate supply voltage is used for the A/D and D/A converter for even better audio performance. The result is clean sound quality with high signal-to-noise ratio, very little distortion and wide frequency response. Two AA batteries can power the recorder for more than 17 hours, even while recording at CD quality. Operation by USB bus power or an optional AC adapter is also possible.
