[AES] Tascam launches recorders for handheld mics
Tascam introduces at AES 2014 three new ultra-compact digital audio recorders that plug directly to handheld microphones.
The three new Tascam DR-10X, DR-10CS and DR-CL are designed for interviewers and broadcasters who capture the audio with handheld microphones.
The DR-10X plugs directly to any XLR-equipped handheld microphone and records in BWF (WAV) mono 24-bit / 48kHz format to an SD/SDHC card (up to 32GB). The unit is powered by a single AAA battery for up to 8 hours of use and features a three-way gain switch (Low, Mid and High) for the mic preamp, a limiter, a low-cut filter, Instant and Dual (creates a backup of the recording at lower level) recording modes and a play function with a headphone output. A micro USB port allows for connecting the recorder to a computer and you can also copy the settings between multiple units via infrared.
TheTascam DR-10CS and DR-10CL offer the same specifications but they are design for specific microphones, respectively from Sennheiser (DR-10CS) and Lectrosonics (DR-10CL). Tascam also offers optional adapters for the Shure and Sony/RAMSA mics.
No information regarding the pricing nor the availability of these new recorders.
