The black DR-05 Portable Handheld Digital Audio Recorder from Tascam offers high-quality recording in a lightweight and compact design that anyone can use, and is perfect for musicians, teachers, journalists, and more. The DR-05 records WAV or MP3 files at rates up to 24-bit/96 kHz to microSD or microSDHC cards for reliable, skip-free storage. A 2GB card is included so you can get started right away. Integrated microphones capture clear stereo audio, while a 3.5mm stereo mic/line input lets you connect external mics and sound sources. The jack even provides plug-in power for mics that require it.
An integrated speaker and a 3.5mm headphone jack make it easy to listen to your recordings to make sure everything was captured perfectly. The large display screen shows vital information during recording and playback, while the intuitive controls provide quick and easy single-handed operation. The Peak Reduction feature will automatically set your recording level by listening to the audio input and adjusting for the best level. When used alongside the built-in limiter, unwanted distortion becomes a thing of the past.
The DR-05 includes other classic Tascam features, such as Variable Speed Audition, a level-align function, loop and repeat playback, self-timer recording, integrated editing, a chromatic tuner, and more. A USB 2.0 port allows you to connect the recorder to a computer to quickly transfer files. The DR-05 operates on a pair of standard AA batteries or via the included USB cable. A threaded socket provides convenient tripod mounting.
