The Edirol R-09 HR takes a step up in audio quality from the best-selling R-09 thanks to its high-resolution, 24-bit/96kHz sample rate; high-quality preamps and components; and 3 discrete circuit boards that eliminate electrical crosstalk. The R-09 HR's frequency response is impressively flat, which means that what goes in is what comes out without noticeable changes in timbral quality. And speaking of what comes out, the R-09 HR adds a noticeable sheen to source material. The updated R-09 HR also includes a wireless remote control, stand, and Cakewalk's Pyro Audio Creator software.
24bit/96kHz linear PCM + I.A.R.C. (Isolated Adaptive Recording Circuit)
Experience precise audio reproduction and clarity with a wider dynamic range when using the higher bit and sample rates that the R-09HR offers. The R-09HR supports up to 24bit/96kHz linear PCM recording, which has over twice the digital audio resolution of a standard audio CD. I.A.R.C. is a newly developed, dedicated analog circuit optimized for recording with the R-09HR's onboard A/D converter. Electrolytic capacitors provide stable, reliable power with an independent power source for the analog circuitry, and another power source for the digital circuit board, thus eliminating DC interference between components in the R-09HR. The I.A.R.C. also contributes to high quality, low noise MP3 recording with the R-09HR.
Professional-grade, high-sensitivity stereo condenser microphone built in
When recording with the R-09HR, there's no extra gear to buy or cables to connect. A professional-quality stereo microphone is built right into the unit, complete with a dedicated analog input control, mono/stereo selector, low-cut filter, limiter/AGC (Auto Gain Control), and a gain boost. The onboard electret condenser microphone elements are very compact, ultra-sensitive, and placed to capture 3-dimensional sound naturally and accurately. To further avoid possible noise interference from internal components, the microphone housing is separated from the main circuit board . . . another sign of quality design from EDIROL (For use an external microphone, the R-09HR offers a 1/8" stereo mic input).
Compact, hand-held body allows for convenient portable use
Small enough to fit in a shirt pocket, the R-09HR has a new tactile feel that is easy to grip. It also has a user-friendly graphic display for ultra easy operation. The large 1.5" OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display provides wide view-ability, at-a-glance level meters, peak indicators, and additional recording information on the screen.
Preview Monitor (Small Speaker) built in
Without headphones, you can easily check out the recorded sounds right after the recording, thanks to the preview monitor on rear panel.
Wireless remote controller included
With the included wireless remote controller, transport functions such as recording start/playback start, fast forward, rewind, volume control, and input level control can be accessed from a distance away. This allows the R-09HR to be placed in exactly the right position for recording, and allows for quick and easy touch-less operation.
Cakewalk Pyro Audio Creator
The R-09HR comes with Cakewalk's Pyro Audio Creator LE CD-ROM*. This software is perfect for WAV/MP3 audio file editing; to trim cut, or fade audio sections, publish a web page with sounds, to publish a blog with audio, to podcast an interview or performance, and so on. With Audio Creator's virtual toolbox, you are just a click away from recording and editing audio; burning and ripping CDs; cleaning and converting albums to CD or MP3; encoding, tagging, and organizing your sound library; backing up your files to data CD, DVD, or Blu-Ray; and even publishing music to the Internet. With Pyro the R-09HR package becomes truly a complete recording solution suite from recording to CD-burning.
High-speed file transfer via USB 2.0
The R-09 can connect to the outside world via USB for importing/exporting audio files to a computer very quickly. The R-09HR supports Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0) mass storage so file transfers are very quick and convenient.
Wide variety of optional accessories
Perfect for many recording applications from rehearsals, recitals, concerts, interviews, podcasts, research, photo journaling, law enforcement, to nature and field recording, and business meetings, the R-09HR optional accessories are useful to pros and novices alike.

Comments about Edirol R-09HR 24-bit/96KHz WAV/MP3 Recorder:
I have owned the Edirol MP3 Recorder for a year now and it has been worth every penny x10. I use it for band rehersal, song writing, conversation recordings, even live band recording. Everything comes out crystal clear with a little experimentation on the placement and the venue (can pick up alot of bass guitar) but you just move it where you get a good mix. I run the line in from my truck stereo and can listen to the gig i just recorded on way home. 2 or 4G Memory card is more than enough only one small not even complaint cause most electronic devices have this problem is stockpile batteries. Recording does not drain batteries but playback will drain batteries twice as fast.
