Tascam DR-100mkIII

Road-Ready, Studio-Quality Recorder

A high-end, no-compromise recording solution for professionals in the field, the DR-100mkIII offers the best audio performance of any Tascam portable stereo recorder. 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. There are XLR/TRS inputs for connecting external mics, plus HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps to maintain a pristine audio signal path throughout. The DR-100mKIII supports high-definition recording at both 96 kHz/24 bit and 192 kHz/24 bit.
