On this drop, you can choose from three models in Tascam’s highly regarded handheld recorder line: the DR-05 V2, the DR-40, or the DR-100 MKIII. The portable, easy-to-use Tascam DR-05 is ideal for those looking to get into high-quality sound recording on the go. It records in MP3 or WAV format, including 96kHz/24-bit high-resolution audio, to microSD or microSDHC media. A pair of omnidirectional microphones handle up to 125 dB/SPL and have the sensitivity to capture every detail. The Peak Reduction feature automatically sets your recording level by listening to the input and adjusting for the best level. This second version of the DR-05 has new features, such as a nondestructive overdubbing function for music creation, which allows the user to record over parts of the file while retaining and original, unaffected file.

Note: At checkout, choose the DR-05 V2 (base price), the DR-40 (+ $60), or the DR-100 MKIII (+ $260).
The DR-40 is the next step up from the DR-05 V2. It features adjustable mics, four-track recording, and an extended battery life. The internal mics are adjustable from XY to AB position, which helps you tailor your recording to the sound of the room. Finally, the DR-100 MKIII offers the best audio performance of any Tascam portable stereo recorder. A high-end, no-compromise recording solution for professionals in the field, it boasts a signal-to-noise ratio exceeding 100 dB, along with an updated user interface and a tough aluminum body that’s built to go wherever you do. Dual AKM AK4558 converters with VELVET SOUND technology eliminate interference between left and right channels, resulting in low power consumption and studio-quality sound.
