For sale, we have a fully functioning and fully tested Tascam DV-RA1000 High Definition Audio Master Recorder. It comes with the original owners manual, and the wired remote control. Physically the unit is in very good shape with some scuffs and blemishes, but overall the unit is in very good shape, and presents itself very well. We opened up the unit, it was very clean inside, and we changed the internal battery. The internal hard drive has a number of recordings on it, mostly classical, that we left on the drive. In order to test the unit, we recorded audio tracks as file Recordmart01 to the hard drive with no problem. We then successfully burned the audio tracks we recorded to both DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, and DVD+RW discs to confirm operation. Operations can easily be done with the onboard control panel. Also, using the USB connection, we were to view the internal hard drive as a usb drive on our laptop, and copy the files. We also dug out an old PS2 keyboard and used it to type information, like naming files directly into the DV-RA1000HD.
We had no experience with this unit initially, but we really enjoyed testing it out. It really is a great tool. See Tascam's full description, features and specs below.
TASCAM's award-winning DV-RA1000HD shatters the price barrier to recording mixes and masters to Direct Stream Digital, Sony's 2.822MHz/1-bit "Super Audio" format that must be heard to be believed. The stereo recorder captures audio from 44.1kHz to 192kHz as WAV files. In addition, the breakthrough DSD recording format adds incredible detail with all of the depth and imaging of quality analog recording.
The DV-RA1000HD records directly to a 60GB hard drive or to a CD/DVD optical drive, and DVDs or CDs can be made from hard drive playlists. A USB 2.0 connection allows direct transfer to computer without burning a disc. The rear panel includes balanced and unbalanced analog and digital connectors for just about any format. The rich-sounding analog converters are capable of recording DSD format audio - no additional hardware is required.
Included with the DV-RA1000HD is a wired remote control for dependable punch-in. WAV audio can be processed with built-in 3-band EQ and multiband compression/limiting before burning to disc.
