Tascam’s High-End Master Recorder and ADDA Converter

Tascamda-3000_p_frIt is good to see new product launches from the TEAC group’s pro audio brand after its recent acquisition by Gibson, especially this upgrade to the legendary DV-RA1000HD recorder. The new Tascam DA-3000 offers the same famous Burr-Brown (now Texas Instruments) ADCs but it comes with a high-quality op-amp (NE5532), optimum condensers, and high-specification resistors for low-noise, high-accuracy, and high-heat capacity in a sleeker, more modern design. This new high-definition master recorder/ADDA converter is designed to fit in any professional or home recording studio, for recording, mastering, broadcasting, replacing a DAT machine, or for audiophiles who want to upgrade their files. This recorder supports high sampling rates up to 192 kHz pulse code modulation (PCM) and 5.6 MHz direct-stream digital (DSD), with the option of recording to SDHC and compact flash with support for USB memory playback.

A balanced XLR I/O, unbalanced RCA I/O along with digital audio I/F AES-EBU, S/PDIF for PCM, and SDIF-3/DSD-raw for DSD is located in the rear of the unit. The DA-3000 warrants a clock frequency accuracy of 1 ppm by TCXO and uses a crystal direct system for low jitter.

The dual-monaural DAC is configured with Texas Instruments (TI) ICs (PCM1795) for each channel and uses TI’s PCM4202 on the A/D conversion, adding an E-I core power transformer with separated coils for digital and analog circuits.
