Tascam DR-100 MKIII Digital Recorder

The Tascam DR-100 MKIII Digital Recorder is a road-ready, studio-quality 192kHz/24-bit compatible Linear PCM Recorder. Designed to meet the needs of the most demanding audio designers and engineers, this new model combines robust reliability, an updated user interface and studio quality sonic performance to deliver a truly breathtaking audio experience.

The Tascam DR-100 MKIII Digital Recorder is top-of-the-line handheld digital recorder. The Tascam DR-100 MKIII boasts a signal-to-noise ratio exceeding 100dB, delivering the best audio performance in the history of TASCAM portable stereo recorders.

World Class Audio Performance
AKM AK4558 converters with VELVET SOUND architecture deliver a S/N ratio of 102dB. Used in a variety of combinations, depending upon the selected function, the Tascam DR-100 MKIII features dual AKM AK4558 converters with VELVET SOUND architecture, providing both high sound quality and low power consumption, achieving a signal-to-noise ratio of 102dB. Dual ADC mode, using two AK4558 converters in parallel operation, provides a S/N ratio of 109dB. The dual ADC mode uses two AK4558 AD converters in parallel operation. Signal-to-noise ratio is maximized and audio fidelity is improved, delivering a 109dB S/N ratio as compared to the (already excellent) 102dB S/N ratio achieved when recording in standard mode. Note: As the S/N ratio when recording exceeds the S/N ratio of the entire circuit, data recorded in dual ADC mode will be limited to a 102dB S/N ratio when played back on the Tascam DR-100 MKIII. This does not affect the S/N ratio of the actual file, which is maintained at 109dB S/N. External Microphones Supported with XLR/TRS Inputs and Built-in Low-Noise HDDA Mic Preamps. The XLR/TRS inputs, used to connect external mics, deliver the highest sound quality and lowest noise of any TASCAM Handheld Digital Recorder. HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps are also included to maintain a pristine audio signal path throughout. Onboard dual (directional/omnidirectional) stereo microphones with integrated shockmounts deliver flexible recording options while retaining professional quality audio performance. A newly designed microphone housing for the directional mics is based on exhaustive research of previous TASCAM hand held recorders and achieves the perfect marriage of protection and performance. Similarly, the omnidirectional stereo microphone setup features sound pressure level tolerance of 125 dB SPL – able to withstand virtually any audio environment.

Supports Up to 192kHz/24-Bit Recording
The TASCAM DR-100 MKIII supports high definition recording at both 96kHz/24-bit and 192kHz/24-bit, ensuring that remote recordings achieve the same sonic fidelity as their studio-born counterparts.

TASCAM Reliability and Features Designed for Professionals in the Field
Dual battery structure allows the built-in high-capacity lithium-ion battery to be used along with 2 AA batteries. With a dual battery structure that allows the built-in high-capacity lithium-ion battery to be used with in concert with AA batteries, operation is possible for extended periods of time ensuring that the Tascam DR-100 MKIII is ready to go when you are. Additionally, the Tascam DR-100 MKIII can be rapidly charged by connecting an AC adapter and even support USB Bus power from an external battery pack commonly used to charge mobile phones and tablets. TASCAM’s unique Dual Level recording function allows simultaneous recording of a backup file at a lower gain level. TASCAM's exclusive Dual Level Recording function simultaneously records a secondary backup file at a lower gain level than the primary recording. This safety file, recorded at a 12db lower level protects your recording session from unexpected volume spikes and accidental overload.

Locking XLR/TRS combo Jacks Made by Amphenol
Locking XLR/TRS combo jacks made by Amphenol ensure high reliability in the field and protect against unwanted connectivity issues.

The TASCAM DR-100 MKIII Offers Improved Usability Based on User Feedback
When working on location, decisions must be made quickly and efficiently, and an intuitive and consistent User Interface is critical. By gathering feedback from users of the original Tascam DR-100 and the MKII, the Tascam has been able to add a variety of usability enhancements designed to streamline workflow and help audio professionals achieve success quickly and efficiently. The user interface has been designed to provide clear visual feedback, and includes both a large LCD screen and dedicated status LEDs. The user interface has been designed to maximize visual confirmation, and includes a large LCD screen (double the size of the screen on the Tascam DR-100 MKIII), dedicated status LEDs for features such as record levels and status and easy-to-read legends on the casework.
