New Tascam Mic Pre And Audio Interface

UH-7000 features High Definition Instrumentation Architecture preamps      07/04/14

Tascam says that the UH-7000, which is now shipping, is a pro-level microphone preamp and audio interface, designed with a strong focus on low noise and high audio quality. They tell us that, not only can this unit be used as a 4-in/4-out audio interface in a DAW production environment, but as a standalone microphone preamp and AD/DA converter. The built-in HDIA (High Definition Instrumentation Architecture) microphone preamps are newly designed with low noise and high audio quality, performing at  -128dBu EIN, a 117dB signal-to-noise ratio and distortion ratio of 0.0009% or less. Here's the rest of the details in Tascam's own words...

The grand nature of the UH-7000's sound is partially due to the careful attention spent on selecting parts. In addition to the Burr-Brown PCM4220 ADC, PCM1795 DAC converters and thin film metal resistors, installed is a powerful TCXO clock generator with +/- 1ppm precision.

The units half-rack size makes it easy to install at a studio console or work desk. The thick aluminum panels on the front and sides of the full-metal body increase stability. Highly important but easily forgotten are the smooth-tension aluminum input level knobs for precise level adjustments.

The UH-7000 microphone preamp and audio interface enables composers, musicians and recording engineers to produce music in their private quarters at a level only reached in professional studios.
