Designed as the successor to the well-known DV-RA1000HD – a high-resolution PCM/DSD master recorder introduced in 2006 that used a harddisk or DVD media for audio recording – the DA-3000 is Tascam's new flagship for high-difinition audio recording and ADDA conversion.
The sleek, modern DA-3000 fits in any recording studio, professional or home, for recording, mastering, broadcast, replacing a DAT machine or for audiophiles wanting to take the next step to perfection. It records to highly reliable solid-state SDHC or CompactFlash media, offers widely respected Burr-Brown converters and sophisticated preamplifiers built from selected components for outstanding sound quality. And its zero-noise design means no cooling fans or other mechanical noise sources as well as improved operational reliability and freedom of maintenance.
The unit supports high sampling rates up to PCM 192 kHz and DSD 5.6 MHz. High-precision Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillators (TCXO) and dual monaural converters for each channel ensure pristine audio quality with sample accuracy at both recording and playback. Multiple DA-3000 units can be linked easily for simultaneous multi-channel/multi-track recording and a host of connectors is available on the rear panel to fit the unit in virtually any environment. There are also large, bright LED level meters and an OLED display to provide wide viewing angle and high visibility even under poor lighting conditions.
The DA-3000 comes with a wireless remote control and the ability to connect a computer keyboard for easy titling and control.
