The DR-100MKIII is Tascam’s top-of-the-line portable delivering the best audio performance in the history of Tascam stereo handheld recorders. Designed to meet the needs of the most demanding audio designers and engineers this third generation of the DR-100 combines robust reliability an easy-to-use interface and studio-quality sonic performance.

Tascam DR-100MKIIIYou can record directly from the built-in uni-directional or omni-directional stereo microphones connect your own mics to the rugged locking Amphenol XLR/TRS connectors use a camera microphone or line source for recording or record from a digital SPDIF source. 24 or 48 volts of Phantom power on the XLR inputs are available for the use of studio condenser mics and Mid/Side microphone configurations can be decoded before or after recording. This ensures that virtually all fields of application are covered – from music speech and atmosphere recordings to meeting minutes and live concert recordings.

Many other improvements and new features as well as the multilingual menu make the DR-100MKIII an easy-to-use companion for sound recordings at the highest level.

High-quality converters

Used in a variety of combinations depending upon the selected function 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 102 dB.

The dual ADC mode uses two AK4558 AD converters in parallel. Signal-to-noise ratio is maximized and audio fidelity is improved delivering an S/N ratio of 109 dB as compared to the (already excellent) 102 dB achieved when recording in standard mode.

Note: As the S/N ratio when recording exceeds the S/N ratio of the entire circuit data recorded in dual mono ADC mode will be limited to an S/N ratio of 102 dB when played back on the DR-100MKIII. This does not affect the S/N ratio of the actual file which is maintained at 109 dB.

XLR/TRS inputs and low-noise HDDA preamps for external microphones

The XLR/TRS inputs used to connect external mics 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.

High sample rates for high-definition recordings

The DR-100MKIII supports high-definition recording at both 96 kHz / 24 bits and 192 kHz / 24 bits ensuring that remote recordings achieve the same sonic fidelity as their studio-born counterparts.
