Tascam's top-line digital field recorder's latest revision.

The DR-100mkIII features dual AKM AK4558 converters with VELVET SOUND architecture, providing both high sound quality and low power consumption, achieving a signal-to-noise ratio of 102dB. By eliminating interference between left and right channels, signal-to-noise ratio is maximized and audio fidelity is improved.
In addition, each of those AD converters can work in a Dual ADC mode. The two AD converters work in tandem then combine their results for a 109dB S/N ratio, beating the (already excellent) 102dB S/N ratio achieved when recording in standard mode.

The XLR/TRS inputs deliver the highest sound quality and lowest noise of any TASCAM Handheld Digital Recorder. HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps are also included to maintain a pristine audio signal path throughout

The omnidirectional stereo microphone setup features a sound pressure level tolerance of 125dB SPL and includes an integrated shock mount structure to suppress unwanted vibration and handling noise. The TASCAM DR-100mkIII supports high definition recording at both 96kHz/24bit and 192kHz/24, ensuring that remote recordings achieve the same sonic fidelity as their studio-born counterparts

The precision of the built-in clock is crucial when digital recordings made on what device are to be used in conjunction with materials recorded on other devices, such as when combining digital audio and video assets. To ensure stability, the DR-100mkIII utilizes the same Temperature-Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) used in professional studio master recorders. Moreover, the TCXO is not affected by the temperature of the environment, critical for a portable device which must maintain its precision in support of high-quality recording.

The user interface has been designed to maximize visual confirmation, and includes a large LCD screen (double the size of the screen on the DR-100mkII), dedicated status LEDs for features such as record levels and status and easy-to-read legends on the casework. Dedicated hardware controls have been implemented for the most commonly accessed features to enable quick, positive operation in the field.

    The best portable recorder I've heard so far!

    I was able to borrow and test a few of the top end field recorders and this came out on top. It most definitely has the best preamps. It is also very easy to use. It doesn't get much better than this!

    Comments about Tascam Portable 2-Channel Linear PCM Recorder:

    Excellent sound and professional input connections. This portable offers xlr microphone inputs with 48 volt phantom power. Line input is on a 1/4" TRS plug. Good meter, and large gain adjust knob makes operation easy. Excellent Li-ION battery and also can use AA batteries.

    Uses the latest converters offering "Velvet Sound" for very competitive top rank sound.
