New York, NY (August 22, 2016)—TASCAM has introduced the latest incarnation of its DR-100 Linear PCM Recorder—the mkIII handheld—built and designed to meet the demands of high-resolution stereo field recording (up to 192 kHz/24-bit), priced at $399.
Featuring a 109 dB signal-to-noise ratio, dual-mono AKM "Velvet Sound" converters, dual battery structure (using built-in Li-ion rechargeable and standard AA types), and various I/O and built-in microphone choices, the DR-100mkIII can record up to 128 GB of audio to a SDXC card (not included).
Features include dual stereo mics in both AB and omnidirectional patterns, two Amphenol XLR/combo jacks, switchable phantom power, and dedicated, adjustable input level control for smooth live operation.
Notably, the DR-100mkIII features TASCAM's exclusive Dual Recording Mode, which simultaneously captures a lower level safety track; this is to safeguard against unexpected source level spikes. Key to its intended applications, the unit is enclosed within a rugged black aluminum chassis intended to last.
