The Zoom R8 Recorder/Sampler/Drum Machine and Stereo-Mic Recording Package Kit from B&H includes an R8 8-track digital recorder/interface/controller and sampler from Zoom, a matched pair of Polsen SDC-2150-MP small-diaphragm condenser microphones, the SMH-500 professional studio headphones from Senal, a 4-pack of Duracell AA alkaline batteries, two Auray MS-5230F tripod mic stands with a fixed boom, and two XLRM to XLRF premium microphone cables.
The R8 recorder is an ultra-portable music production solution that is ideal for the musician on the go. It has two-track simultaneous recording and 8-track playback. It records WAV files at a sample rate of 44.1 and 48 kHz and bit rates of 16 and 24-bits. Featuring XLR/TRS combo inputs for connecting external microphones and instruments, the R8 recorder has 48V phantom power on two tracks for supporting condenser mics. There are over 140 DSP effects you can add to your recordings.
The Polsen matched-pair microphones are small-diaphragm cardioid condenser mics for capturing high-quality audio. With a tailored frequency response that slightly accentuates mid-high frequencies, the microphones capture sound naturally and can handle high sound-pressure levels with no distortion.
Furthermore, the included Senal headphones feature accurate sound, offer superior comfort, and are designed for studio and light field applications. They are equipped with 40mm neodymium drivers at 58 Ohms impedance and are loud enough when attached to low-powered devices such as mobile phones, MP3 players, yet robust enough to handle studio headphone amps without distortion.
Other accessories include the following: a 4-pack of AA alkaline batteries to power the recorder, two tripod mic stands with 31.5" fixed boom arms to position and support the microphones, and two XLR premium microphone cables to connect to the recorder.
