Tascam DA-3000 High-Definition Recorder

The Tascam DA-3000 is a high-performance master recorder, perfectly designed for stereo PCM/DSD recordings at high sampling frequencies suitable for archival masters. This magnificent unit is capable of recording analog and digital signals up to 192kHz PCM or 5.6MHz DSD. The DA-3000 records to both SDHC cards and UDMA-supported CF cards.

Variety of Inputs and Outputs to Handle Diverse Recording Situations

The variety of inputs and outputs enable connection with all types of studio equipment, including audio interfaces and mic preamps. The analog inputs and outputs include both XLR and RCA jacks. The digital connections include S/PDIF RCA coaxial and XLR jacks to support AES/EBU. The BNC SDIF-3 inputs and outputs support DSD digital connections.

Upgraded User Interface

With the goal of making a high-quality audio recorder and ADDA converter easy to use, Tascam designed the front panel with all of the necessary external controls and included long, brightly lit meters and display. The 128x64 OEL display allows you to check necessary information quickly, and the 24-dot level meters allows you to confidently monitor levels at all times.

Simultaneous Multitrack Recording and Playback with Multiple Cascaded Units

You can synchronize the operation of multiple DA-3000 units by interconnecting their digital inputs and outputs. Files that have been recorded in sync will have sample-level synchronization as well. In addition to stereo DSD recording of Jazz and classical music, this also makes simple DSD multitrack recording of bands possible.

Dual Mono Circuits Eliminate Interference Between Left and Right Channels

Use of a dual mono structure for the output circuit eliminates interference between the left and right channels and achieves high audio quality by maximizing the performance of the components. Two high-quality mono circuits are built into the unit. The left/right channels each use one highly-acclaimed Burr-Brown PCM1795 D/A converter chip. The TASCAM DA-45HR, which is still used in many studios, uses a dual mono structure with NE5532 op amps and Burr-Brown D/A converters. By using an equivalent output circuit structure including DA converters of even higher quality that support DSD, the DA-3000 provides a portable high-quality monitoring system.

Your Portable High-Quality Monitoring System

By installing the Tascam DA-3000 High Definition Solid State Master Recorder in a portable rack, you can set up reliable monitoring in any studio. You can connect it to a studio DAW system and a high-precision clock generator. At home studios, you can achieve same high-level monitoring quality to increase your work efficiency by using digital connections just like you would with a small audio interface.

AD Converter for Mastering

This unit can also be used as a high-quality AD converter at the end of an analog mastering chain. The fully-balanced, low noised circuitry and the high-quality AD circuitry convert the carefully adjusted audio using EQs and compressors into digital signals without sound degradation.

Simultaneous Master File Recording

Using High Sampling Frequency PCM/DSD Recording At the same time that you record a PCM master file (16-bit/44.1kHz) in software using a DAW system, you can also make a high sampling frequency PCM/DSD recording by connecting the DA-3000 directly to an analog mixer. By capturing two types of digital master recordings, you will be ready for future post-recording needs.

DSD Multitrack Recorder

Utilizing the DA-3000's clock precision, DSD multitrack recording is possible using multiple units. Since the DA-3000 can record two mono files instead of a stereo file, 8 units could be used together for 16-tracks of recording. Connecting the COAXIAL jacks is the only necessary connection between the units.

DA Converter for a PA/SR Digital Console

In recent years, digital consoles are being used increasingly in PA and sound reinforcement roles. By connecting the digital outputs of such a console to this unit you can upgrade the hall sound to an even higher quality. Since the DA-3000 has an OEL display and level meters with high visibility, you can check the signal status in the dark even from a distance.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds is great! After looking for Pro DJ speakers I came across zZounds on the internet and they financed me with the no credit check money down 4 month payment plan, which really helped me out a lot. They are the greatest to buy audio equipment online. They have low prices that are compatible with other online sites and didn’t charge me interest. I highly recommend them. I will be doing all my online audio purchases with them from here on out." - Customer on November 30, 2018
