Overview

The TASCAM DV-RA1000HD supports recording to CD, DVD or hard disk media at up to 192kHz/24-bit PCM resolution. Like its predecessor, the DV-RA1000, it also records Direct Stream Digital audio, Sony's revolutionary format created for Super Audio CDs. TASCAM remains the only manufacturer to offer Direct Stream Digital recording for under $10,000, making the format attainable for audiophile archival and professional studio mixdown.

The DV-RA1000HD high def recorder includes DSP for EQ and dynamics processing, a USB 2.0 connection for computer transfer and a rear panel packed with the connections professionals demand. Minnetonka's discWelder Bronze 1000 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, making it ideal for live recording. Recording is also possible direct to DVD+RW media for over five hours of recording at better-than-CD quality. Designed for recording studio mixdown, audiophile archival, live recording and installed sound, you can trust the DV-RA1000HD digital recorder with your most treasured master recordings.
