    Tascam anounces New DSD Recorder!

    Tascam Announces DA-3000 High-Res Recorder

    Tascam is previewing the DA-3000, a high-resolution master recorder that writes files at 192kHz/24-bit or Direct Stream Digital formats. The new 2-track records to SD Card or Compact Flash media, and can record DSD at 2.6MHz or 5.6MHz.
    The DA-3000 replaces their DV-RA1000HD, which recorded to hard drive or DVD media. The A/D converters are Burr Brown PCM4202 and the D/A are a pair of PCM1795s. A new transformer based power supply has been created, with separate supplies for the analog and digital components.

    The SD Card can be up to 32GB and the Compact Flash up to 64GB in size. In addition there’s a USB input for a flash drive, though it’s playback only. Another USB input accepts a keyboard to name tracks. The rear panel has balanced and unbalanced inputs and outputs, AES/EBU, S/PDIF, SDIF-3, and Word Clock inputs and outputs.

    Up to four of the units can be chained together for 8-channel live or surround recording and playback. The unit seems similar to Korg’s recently-discontinued MR-2000S, though with more connections on the rear panel, solid state recording, and about half the price.

    Tascam’s DA-3000 is slated to ship in June for a street price of $999.

    Hi Bruce,

    Please let us know how well this records. There's no Korg dealer here but the Tascam dealer has a store right outside our village's gate.

    Hello, Bruce. Pre-ordered? How long [estimated] until they ship or do you know yet? I too am curious as to the sound.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

    I post my own opinions except when posting as a moderator in green.

    Bruce, is that a DVD/CD-R tray below the recording level meters?

    Also, the TI BB PCM-1795s are 32-bit/192kHz high resolution DACs.

    The tray/slot is for Flash cards. This is what the unit records to. As far as the chips... I haven't a clue.
