The PCM-D100 is a high resolution recorder with two-position (X-Y or
Wide) stereo microphones, 32 GB of internal flash memory and a SD-XC
Card slot. Recording formats include linear PCM (at 192, 176.4, 96,
88.2, 48 and 44.1kHz); DSD (2.8224 MHz) and MP3 (320 and 128 kbps).
Additional playback support is provided for FLAC, WMA and AAC files. The
D100 is constructed of lightweight metal (aluminium) and its rugged built
quality will withstand the demands of pro applications, plus it offers
long battery life using conventional AA alkaline batteries. The recorder
includes a USB high-speed port for simple uploading/downloading to/from
Windows PC or Macintosh computers. Other PCM-D100 features include
digital pitch control, dual path digital limiter, low-cut filter, Super
Bit Mapping and A-B repeat capability.
Sony’s PCM-D100 audio recorder is designed to deliver the highest sound
quality in professional audio applications including live music events,
theatrical performances, and news gathering. The recorder supports the
latest high-resolution codecs and formats, including 192kHz/24bit PCM
Compatibility with the DSD format enables the recording of source sounds
using digital signals, but in a format that closely resembles analogue
waveforms. Compatible with recording and playback in 192 kHz/24-bit
linear PCM, the unit can reproduce ultra-high range, delicate music
components with excellent audio quality from low to high range. Its
broad playback frequency band easily exceeds the audible band of 20 Hz
to 25 kHz.
A highly sensitive directional microphone uses a new 15 mm
unidirectional mic unit. The mic’s sound collection range adjusts to
suit various sounds, from performances with a small number of people to
concert halls with a large group of performers. The highly sensitive,
broadband recording functionality expresses frequency properties up to
40 kHz, to maximize the advantages of DSD recording.
The PCM-D100 recorder has 32 GB of built-in flash memory and a
combination SD Card/Memory Stick slot for expandable storage. The
recorder’s lightweight metal aluminium body is built to withstand the
demands of professional applications and offers long battery life via
four AA batteries (up to approximately 11 hours in DSD (2.8 MHz/1-bit).
• Crystal-Clear Sound
Prepare to be knocked out by the frequency
response and overall sound quality made possible by this little
recorder’s high-resolution audio. The PCM-D100’s strengths all start
with this superior sound capability.
• Adjustable Mics
When you’re close to the sound source, adjust the PCM-D100’s larger
stereo microphones to 90° for a natural stereo image with depth. For
orchestras and other recordings in larger venues, set the two mics at
120° for realistic rich sounds with a feeling of broad openness.
This portable recorder’s digital
limiter prevents sounds distortion, even in cases of excessive input,
by automatically adjusting to the optimal level within the buffer range
Minimal Internal Noise
Internal noise is
almost eliminated during AD conversions because of the digital limiter
mechanism. Noise is minimized for soft sounds while maintaining the same
amplitude as the source sound - sometimes achieving a S/N ratio up to
Built-in Editing Capability
Edit on your computer or on the spot. Download the audio file to your
computer and edit with the Sound Forge Audio Studio LE software that
comes with your recorder. Or use the Divide and Combine functions to
edit as you record.
Set up menu access the
way you need it, assigning frequently used features to the F1/F2
buttons. Home/Option buttons also simplify navigation.
• Super Bit Mapping
Sony’s unique technology provides 20
bit levels of audio performance when recording 16 bits.
• Dual Format Recording
Record in both PCM and MP3 simultaneously. Then email the
MP3 while retaining the larger PCM file on your computer.
• Wireless IR Remote
With two sensors on the IR receiver unit receiving
signals from a wide range, it’s simple to use your remote to control
recording from a distance. The easy-to-see LED lets you know when
recording has stopped - especially useful in a dark room or concert hall.
• Cross-Memory Recording
If the internal memory or remaining memory in the memory
card runs out during recording, you’re covered—the PCM-D100 can
automatically switch to the other memory device to continue recording
• Multi-Choice Playback
Choose from a variety of playback modes, including DSD,
FLAC, LPCM, MP3, WMA, and AAC-LC. Utilize playback features such as Up
Sampling (PCM), Effects (PCM + MP3), Digital Pitch Control (PCM + MP3),
and Key Control (PCM + MP3).
