HHB's latest, the CDR-882 DualBurn CD recorder, is compatible with CD-R and CD-RW media of all speed ratings. Recordings made on HHB's own reference quality CDR74 Gold media exhibit an average Block Error Rate as low as 0.09. The increase in recording accuracy is directly attributable to new drives and associated firmware now employed in CDR-882 production. Full 24-bit A/D and D/A converters with dither onto CD, combine with a quartz-crystal-derived internal clock and analog circuitry.
Build quality is uncompromised, with the CDR-882 weighing in at 14.7 lbs. Unlike adapted consumer devices, the CDR-882 uses IDE CD-R drives mounted in a steel 2U rackmounting chassis to reportedly ensure reliable, glitch-free recording, even in unfavorable environments such as live concerts.
Connectivity consists of XLR analog I/O, unbalanced phono analog I/O, balanced XLR AES/EBU digital I/O, coaxial and optical S/PDIF digital I/O, external word clock input, RS232 remote control and parallel control interface. An onboard sample rate converter accepts digital signals from 32-96 kHz, and the CDR-882 ships with an infrared remote control.
