      Gold chassis for your gold music.

      Special Edition issue of the DR-05 handheld personal digital recorder in a limited run Vintage Gold finish. TASCAM's DR-05 brings high-quality stereo recording to an easy-to-use portable powerhouse with a size and price that anyone can handle. The DR-05 records in MP3 or WAV format, including 24-bit/96kHz high-resolution audio to microSD or microSDHC media. A pair of all-new microphones handles up to 125dB SPL with the sensitivity to capture every detail. With new recording features like Peak Reduction and Quick Menu, the DR-05 puts album-quality recording in the palm of your hand.

      Premium-quality Sound
      Everything about the DR-05 is designed to get the best quality recordings of your music. A new pair of built-in microphones withstands up to 125dB SPL —the volume of a jet plane from 200 feet away—yet still have the sensitivity to capture every detail of a performance. You can add your own microphone or line-level source through the 1/8" stereo input, including plug-in power for microphones that need it.

      Internally, the DR-05's digital and analog circuit boards are built separately to improve noise performance, with a low-impedance design to further decrease hiss. A separate power supply is sent to the A/D and D/A converter for even better audio performance. The result is clean sound quality —over 92dB signal-to-noise ratio; under 0.05% total harmonic distortionl and 20Hz to 40kHz response (-1/+3dB) at 24-bit/96kHz resolution.

      Simple to Operate
      The layout of the DR-05 has been revamped to be quick and easy to work with one thumb. Operations like recording, adjusting levels, deleting bad takes and adding markers are just a button-press away. Dig deeper to find features like limiting, low-cut filtering, a built-in chromatic tuner, and more.

      One new feature that makes the DR-05 easy to operate is the new Peak Reduction feature. This setting automatically sets your recording level by listening to the input and adjusting for the best level. Unlike Auto Gain settings, this one only goes down to prevent accidental distortion after a period of low level like a break. Peak Recording works in rehearsal mode or in record, so if the performance is louder than the soundcheck you're still safe. Used with the built-in limiter, it's unlikely you'll distort your career-making live recording.

      Other classic TASCAM features are included, like Variable Speed Audition to loop and slow down music without changing the pitch—perfect for transcribing or learning new music. A Level Align function can be switched on for playback to smooth out any sudden volume jumps, and a built-in speaker is also provided. The two AA batteries are enough to power the recorder for 17 1/2 hours, even while recording at CD quality.

        Comments about TASCAM Special Edition Vintage Gold DR-05 Linear PCM Recorder:

        This unit works great for what I bought it for which is record band rehearsals and live performances. I wanted something that was easy to use so my wife or a friend could record us and it worked well. Once we get used to using it a bit, I am sure we will have even better recordings.

        This does exactly what I hoped. Push the record button and done. Using the default settings I recorded my band rehearsals and song ideas. The playback is easy to access and sound good. I'm wasn't looking for hifi from this, but quick and easy. I'm happy with the value.

          Comments about TASCAM Special Edition Vintage Gold DR-05 Linear PCM Recorder:

          This recorder has such good Low middle and high reproduction you can't tell the difference from the music coming live off the stage and what's coming off the recorder during playback on a good sound system, it picks up the lowest note you play on the bass, to the highest tick of the cymbal's and everything in between just as clear as it came off the stage at 24 feet with the settings set at 24 bit on the unit.
