Product description

style:DR-05X

Tascam DR-05X is the new standard in stereo handheld recorders with its high value, powerful features, simple interface and excellent sound quality, It is the first choice for recording meetings, music, audio-for-video, dictation and more. DR-05X allows high-quality recording utilizing an easy-to-use interface and is portable and powerful but with a size and price that anyone can handle. Dual internal condenser microphones can handle anything from subtle to loud to 125dB SPL with sensitivity to capture every detail. The layout of the DR-05X 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. DR-05X uses only two AA batteries and has ultra-long battery capability. When using built-in microphones, recording lasts 17.5 hours when recording with standard 2ch WAV, 44.1kHz/16bit format using alkaline batteries. Also, DR-05X can be powered by a USB mobile battery as well for super long extended use. Connect to a PC using USB Audio interface mode and DR-X becomes a tool for voiceover work, live streaming, podcasting and song writing with studio-quality audio. Built-in microphones work as USB microphones without complicated driver installs. Auto-tone function provides easy-adjustments for on-site movie editing, ideal for DSLR filmmaking. The internal slate tone generator produces various tones for easy track making and recognition. Please use the dedicated accessory kit (AK-DR11C) for connecting. In addition to its capability to capture crisp voice recording, DR-X can help you with its Jump back function, variable Speed function and equalizer preset for the human voice. Auto recording function can detect the sound input signal level and automatically start recording. Also, Pre-recording function with up to 2 seconds pre-record provides fail-safe protection even when you are a bit late to hit the record button.
