Portable, professional, High-end recording all in one little unit. The rugged TASCAM DR-100 MKII offers high-end recording features for musicians and engineers who demand more from their portable recorder. It features four built-in microphones - two cardioid and two omnidirectional - for great sounding recordings. A pair of XLR connectors accept microphone level signals with +48V phantom power for pro-grade condenser microphones, or balanced line-level signals (a new feature on the mkII). The mkII version also adds a S/PDIF digital input, locking connectors and more. Recording is fool-proof because of a cartload of useful functions.
Locking XLR/TRS Inputs; +4dBu Line Level / +48V Phantom Power with 20dB of Head Room
Locking XLR inputs for balanced output to professional audio equipment are built in to the bottom of the unit. +48V phantom power is available allowing for condenser microphones to be connected. When LINE1 is selected using the switch on the bottom, the XLR input can be used for line level input. In addition to being compatible with +4dBu line level input, 20dB of head room is available. It is also possible to use it as a backup recorder for line level output. The locking connectors help ensure that there are no accidental disconnections on sites.
Independent Left / Right Adjustable Large Rotary Input Volume Knob
A large rotary input volume knob is equipped for making fine adjustments to the input level. Fine level settings can be made that are not possible with digital +/- operation. The volume for the left and right channels are independent so level differences can be adjusted. When quick operation is needed, it is possible to make fine level adjustments by direct operation.
Mechanical switches allowing for simple and sure operation
Multiple mechanical switches can be found on the body allowing you to feel secure about operations, which is different from using menu operations. This ensures quick and secure operation.
High-quality Output via the Line Level Output Connector
The headphone output and line level output connectors are independent, which are integrated on most linear PCM/IC recorders. Because each has optimal circuitry, a high-quality line level output is achieved that is not possible with an integrated connector, it is also Independent From the Headphones Connector.
Various Accessories Included
A remote controller is included for eliminating noise from touching the unit, allowing the main body to be set at the optimal location. It is a 2WAY remote control, so in addition to wireless operation, wired operation is also possible for secure operation. A windsock and soft case are also included.
