Sony PCM-D100 overview

  • 1Description

The PCM-D100 High Resolution Portable Stereo Recorder from Sony is capable of recording audio from its built-in stereo mics in up to 192 kHz/24-bit PCM, 2.8224 MHz DSD, or 320 kbps MP3 files. It has 32 GB of internal memory and supports external memory via its SD-XC card slot. The PCM-D100's stereo mics can be arranged in 90° XY or 120° wide stereo positions, depending on the subject being recorded.

The recorder is powered by four included AA batteries and can record approximately 6.5 hours at 192 kHz/24-bit PCM and almost 11 hours as 2.8 MHz/1-bit DSD. Its left and right record channels are individually adjustable, and its meters are illuminated for monitoring in dark environments. For faster transferring of files, the PCM-D100 has a USB port, allowing you to move your files directly to your Mac or PC. A wireless IR remote commander, furry windscreen, USB cable, and carry case are included.

Adjustable Mics
When you're close to the sound source, adjust the PCM-D100's larger stereo microphones to 90° for a natural stereo image with depth. For orchestras and other recordings in large venues, set the two mics at 120° for realistic rich sounds with a feeling of openness
Anti-Distortion Design
This portable recorder's "digital limiter" prevents distortion, even in cases of excessive input, by automatically adjusting to the optimal level within the buffer range of -12dB
Minimal Internal Noise
Internal noise is almost eliminated during AD conversions because of the digital limiter mechanism. Noise is minimized for soft sounds while maintaining the same amplitude as the source sound-sometimes achieving a S/N ratio up to 100dB
Built-in Editing Capability
Edit on your computer or on the spot. Download the audio file to your computer and edit with the Sound Forge Audio Studio LE software that comes with your recorder. Or use the Divide and Combine functions to edit as you record
Streamlined Operation
Set up menu access the way you need it, assigning frequently used features to the F1/F2 buttons. Home/Option buttons also simplify navigation
Super Bit Mapping
Sony's technology provides 20 bit levels of audio performance when recording 16 bits
Dual Recording
Record in both PCM and MP3 simultaneously. Then email the MP3 while retaining the larger PCM file on your computer
Wireless IR Remote Control
With two sensors on the IR receiver unit receiving signals from a wide range, you can use your remote to control recording from a distance. The LED lets you know when recording has stopped-especially useful in a dark room or concert hall
Cross-Memory Recording
If the internal memory or remaining memory in the memory card runs out during recording, you're covered; the PCM-D100 can automatically switch to the other memory device to continue recording seamlessly
Choose from a variety of playback modes, including DSD, FLAC, LPCM, MP3, WMA, and AAC-LC. Utilize playback features such as Up Sampling (PCM), Effects (PCM + MP3), Digital Pitch Control (PCM + MP3), and Key Control (PCM + MP3)
