The NAGRA V is a fate Nagra Nagra IVS-succder in TC and replace R-dat.
Its size and particularly its low weight (less than 3.2 Kg with batteries) can use the shoulder.
Note! the battery life of 7 hours of prs recording, check it twice!
The NAGRA V linear PCM recording in 16 or 24 bit 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz with an option to 96kHz. The recording medium is an internal hard drive 80 MB and support a removable 2.5 "format (FAT 32).
The files are saved as BWF (Broadcast Wave Format EBU) standard protocol exchange AES 31.
The machine must be a team option SMPTE intgrant gnrateur and a synchronizer to be able to exchange the time code with a mara genrateur or another recorder.

The removable drawers accommodate hard drives 2.5 "standards (60 to 20 GB). A 20 GB drive can record about 20 hours to 48 kHz 24 bit. The transfer to Mac or PC is using the adapters USB2, FireWire or PCMCIA.
A buffer memory makes the machine impervious to vibration and shock, and allows for a pre-registration up to 25 s (prerecording buffer).

The Nagra V has a matrix, a decoder adapters M / S and a complete monitoring. Optional limiter can team the microphone input. The Nagra V accepts LR20 batteries, NiMH batteries or Li-ion, but also an external AC or DC on 4 XLR peoples and DC. Navigation through the setup menu is thanks to Arrows located on the front. The display is an LCD screen rtro confi-clear.
RS422 port, for connecting the NAGRA V PC (ACCS to the menu, title, Advanced Settings), thanks to the program Nagra NADCOM
The main controls (record, play) are dclenches using the rotary switch. The use of the machine is intuitive trs.

A configuration that must be established first before turning.

an interface

Do not forget to fully program the internal options especially the Titling menu that must be ON to use the external information (TC, time and day of shooting, comments ,...) in the mediafiles in the BWF files.

We find this unit converters AD and DA converters directly from the fabulous of the Nagra D II and D!
it is a pleasure for both the audiophile warned that the uncompromising professional.
absolute transparency, dynamics dicrte (near 105 dBA)
attention both not to exceed the -4 dB on the vumtre which can sometimes cause saturation numriques on trs strong dynamic transitions (the awakening of the orchestra on percussion and cyblalles), but we are still more than 100 dBA.

Used for 1 year in making its exterior (not studio) amazing device

Lightweight, self-monster 7 hours, versatile, strong and hardy, reliable any temprature and humidity test I Thai 85% jungle humidity and frost french and not move much even when it c is ngative (-11)

Small reproach;
Care and maintenance of Nagra trs gives great quality but not ...
In rare cases, many voices would be welcome ... Two or four more (diverges, Stereo output and labor)?

If it again I would do it earlier! much earlier!
