Professional Hand-Held Solid State Recorder

Of all the hand-held style solid state sound recorders they offer, Tascam's DR-100 series is their best, and this is their highly popular Mark 2 version. Designed for professional and commercial recording in the field, the DR-100MK2 offers high-quality recording directly in WAV or MP3 format from a rugged metal chassis. You can choose between two pairs of built-in uni-directional (cardioid) and omni-directional microphones, as well as XLR mic inputs with switchable 48V phantom power, plus a mini jack line input. The Mark 2 version also adds a digital input (SPDIF), a feature not available in the Mark 1. This ensures that virtually all fields of use are covered – from music, speech and atmosphere recordings to meeting minutes and live concert recordings.

The recording levels can easily be controlled by a twin hardware control (ganged potentiometers) rather than the more fiddly menu option provided on many other recorders. Recordings can be started manually, automatically by level, advanced (buffered by up to 2 seconds), delayed (to prevent key presses from being recorded) or with the help of the included remote control. A switchable mini-loudspeaker for playback is also included. You can make overdubs, manually create a new file during recording, divide a recording and use location markers. The unit is further equipped with switchable automatic analogue gain control with limiter, a three-frequencies switchable low-cut filter, headphones output, wired remote connector and USB connector (for downloads).

The DR-100MK2 comes with a 2GB SD card, wireless remote control, foam windshield and soft case and can be powered either by the included lithium-ion rechargeable, two easily-available AA batteries, and optional battery pack (BP-6AA) or an optional AC adapter (PS-P520). The built-in mic stand screw socket allows the unit to be mounted on a tripod or microphone stand.

 

Update (August 2016) - in addition to the DR-100MK2 Tascam now offer a third generation version of the DR-100 - the DR-100MK3 (DR-100MKIII) at a higher price point - click here for details.
