AES06SF: The Ultimate High-Definition Recorder?


Tascam’s DV-RA1000 recorder has been joined by the DV-RA1000HD on show at AES. The new model supports recording to CD, DVD or hard disk media at up to 192kHz/24-bit resolution, or using Sony's revolutionary Direct Stream Digital format. Like its sibling, it includes DSP for EQ and dynamics processing, USB 2.0 connection to a computer and a rear panel packed with the connections that Tascam say professionals demand. Minnetonka's discWelder Bronze1000 for DSD conversion and DVD-Audio disc authoring is offered free from Tascam for DV-RA1000HD owners.
The DV-RA1000HD provides more than 60 hours of recording to its built-in 60GB hard drive. It also records direct to DVD+RW media, for over five hours of recording at better-than-CD quality. Tascam tell us that they remain the only manufacturer to offer Direct Stream Digital recording for under $10,000, making the format attainable for audiophile archival and professional studio mixdown.
