  • Sony PCM-D100 High Resolution Portable Stereo Recorder

    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)

  • Senal SMH-1000 Professional Field and Studio Monitor Headphones

    The SMH-1000 Professional Field and Studio Monitor Headphones from Senal feature a classic closed-back, over-the-ear, collapsible design. With features like interchangeable cables, a refined frequency response, wire guides, superior comfort, and durable materials, the SMH-1000 is ideal for studio and field applications.

    Equipped with 40mm neodymium drivers at 58 ohm impedance, the SMH-1000 headphones are designed to be loud enough when attached to low powered devices such as mobile phones and mp3 players, yet robust enough to handle studio headphone amps without distortion. The over-ear, closed-back design is intended to help block unwanted outside noise, which is useful in professional field recording and studio monitoring scenarios where isolation is critical.

    The headphones are designed with an EQ curve that's been tailored for a slightly enhanced low end that allows field engineers to detect wind noise more effectively, and for studio engineers to monitor bass and sub bass frequencies. The high frequency response has been extended to accurately reproduce spatial detail. There is also a pronounced but smooth midrange that reduces ear fatigue over prolonged periods, while maintaining focus on vocal and dialogue intelligibility.

    Designed for flexibility as well as great sound, the SMH-1000 makes use of twist-lock detachable cabling. There are two detachable cables included in each box that can be used interchangeably. There is a stretchable 4 to 10' coiled cable that provides better mobility and reach, that also helps prevent snags from pulling the headphones off of your head. This can be useful when navigating through gear-cluttered recording studio environments. There is also a 3' straight cable that is useful when less slack is ideal, such as when using a waist-mounted field recorder or mixer, or when using your mobile device.

    The SMH-1000 has been built with convenience, practicality and comfort in mind as well. The headphones have a collapsible folding mechanism for compact storage and transport. They also have wire guides to keep the ear-cup wires from pinching. Furthermore, they are fitted with a padded headband and soft, replaceable ear cushions to maximize comfort during extended listening.

    An excellent choice for commercial recording, broadcast, home studios, and live and location sound. Also great for home and portable entertainment.
    Over-ear, closed-back (circumaural) stereo headphone design to help block unwanted environmental noise. Ideal for use in professional applications such as studio or field recording.
    Detachable, twist-locking 10' coiled cable and 3' straight cable included. Replacement cables also available from Senal.
    Enhanced low end designed to allow field engineers to detect wind noise effectively, and for studio engineers to monitor bass and sub bass frequencies.
    Pronounced but smooth midrange tailored to reduce ear fatigue over prolonged periods while maintaining focus on vocal and dialog intelligibility.
    Extended high frequency response designed to reproduce spatial detail accurately. Gradual roll off at 14 kHz allows for accurate low level monitoring and hearing protection.
    Padded headband and soft, replaceable ear cushions. Replacement cushions are available for purchase.
    Easy storage via collapsible folding mechanism.

  • Watson 4-Hour Rapid Charger with 4 AA NiMH Rechargeable Batteries (2300mAh)

    This Watson 4-Hour Rapid Charger comes with four 1.2V, 2300mAh AA NiMH batteries that are rechargeable up to 1000 times. The charger will recharge 4 of these included batteries in about 280 min, or 2 in about 140 min. You can also use it to charge optional AA NiCd batteries, or AAA NiMH or NiCd's. The charger's integrated micro-controller ensures that each battery is charged to its full capacity, and automatic charge cut-off prevents overcharging. Should the controller and automatic cut-off function both fail, the safety guard timer will kick in to ensure that the charger still shuts off after 6 hr. The charger also has circuit and polarity protection. Two LED indicators display charging status, and there are two individually-monitored charging channels. The charger has switching 100-240VAC power, enabling use all over the world. Its compact outlet prongs can fold in, making the unit more compact for storage.
