Product Description

Top-grade components, world-class sound -- Searching for the highest recording quality in a portable device? Edirol hand-picked the top analog and digital components for the R-1. The unit records and plays back at crystal-clear, 24-bit audio resolution without compression. Electrolytic capacitors provide stable, reliable power to the analog circuits, eliminating DC interference and offering a truly low-distortion sound. Audio recorded into the R-1 is stored directly onto a removable CompactFlash(tm) card. Maximum recording time is approximately 137 minutes (MP3, 64 kbps mode) when using the included 64 MB memory card. The R-1 offers nine quality modes ranging from 64 kbps compression to 24-bit linear WAV.

Record via built-in mic, external mic, or line inputs -- Need to record quickly, easily, with pro results and without having to buy extra components? The R-1 is equipped with two omni-directional electret microphones for quick and clean capture. It offers superior results using internal microphones because it is completely solid state -- the R-1 makes no noise itself for the internal microphones to pick up. Just press the record button; the level indicator pops up on the display, and you're instantly ready to record. The R-1 also lets you capture audio through its external line or microphone input.

Internal effects, metronome, & tuner -- The R-1 goes above and beyond the competition with its pro-quality internal effects processor, equipped with 13 tools for perfecting your sound (microphone simulator, noise suppressor, hum-cut, EQ, reverb, center canceller, and more). The EQ of the R-1 offers a variety of presets for various styles of music. The R-1 also provides tuner and metronome functions, making it an excellent portable music-practice tool!

Take it anywhere -- Robust, rugged, and ready to travel, the R-1 is built to withstand the rigors of the road. Capture the sounds of nature, record live music, use it as an MP3 player, plug it into your studio gear or stereo for pristine playback -- the options are vast. The R-1 runs on two AA batteries or from the included AC adapter.

Convenient connectivity -- In addition to its headphone output and external audio inputs, the R-1 can connect to the outside world via USB 2.0 for importing and exporting WAV / MP3 audio files directly to the computer. The R-1's headphone jack also doubles as an S/PDIF optical out, so you can stream audio to digital equipment such as digital speakers or DAT / CD / MD recorders.

4.5 out of 5 (64 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"NOT WORTH THE WAIT"
Sound: Overall recorded sound through the internal mics is good. Pick up is excellent for soft and loud sounds simultaneously, although the input volume may be too low for some applications (OK for live acoustic instruments and amplified music/speech). Plug-in mics may be hard to find. Effects are nearly worthless for adding quality to the sound - a good equalizer would have been better. Unit makes a loud click whenever the microphone is plugged/unplugged (don't have it in your ear!) Sounds digital (in a cheap way) when playing some externally created MP3 files. Feature: Features are terrible - worse than some MP3 players half the cost. Can't forward or reverse through a recorded track, can't add tick marks or tracks breaks to a recording (either during or after recording)! Can only play continuously either all tracks (sequential or shuffle) or a single track repeatedly. In other words, you can't play a single track and stop (making the sleep shutoff useless). Can only play at 1/2 speed which sounds "digital" for MP3 128kpbs recordings. Battery life very limited. Quality: The quality seems to be OK. The case is plastic. The knobs and all seem durable, but the buttons are hard to push and don't activate easily/consistently. Sometimes the device gets into a strange rut that you need to power off/on to reset. Value: The product is way overpriced for what it is. Mainly because the functions are so limited. Marantz PMD 660 is a better deal for a quality recorder. Don't be fooled by the fact this can play more MP3 formats than the Marantz PMD 660, because the MP3 playback mode of the Edirol R1 is so limited it is almost useless. Manufacturer Support: Received feedback from an e-mail to the manufacturer about availability, but didn't a receive response from a similar e-mail with a technical question. The Wow Factor: The concept is excellent. It also has appeal because there is not much to compete with it right now. However, once you get it (plan on waiting months), you will realize that this unit is lacking. If you are careful with cash, wait for something better. Overall: My friend ordered in Dec and recieved in May. I will not get it for myself. I'll get the Marantz PMD 660 for quality recording. For casual listening and music practice, I will stick with my little iRiver MP3 player, which has way more functionality for a fraction of the cost.
Style of Music: Classical mostly
