Saramonic SR-VRM1 Overview

  • 1Description

The Saramonic SR-VRM1 is a compact, plug-on linear PCM recorder that connects directly to a handheld microphone with XLR connector and records its output. It provides 48V phantom power so you can use it with both dynamic and condenser microphones to capture audio cable-free and without wireless interference, during interviews, press conferences, meetings, and more.

The SR-VRM1 records WAV audio files at resolutions of up to 24-bit / 48 kHz onto a microSD or microSDHC card. A 32GB card can store up to 60 hours of audio recorded at maximum quality. The unit features an easy-to-read LCD display that enables you to adjust the microphone recording level and the selectable low-cut filter, helping you achieve optimal signal quality. A headphone jack allows you to monitor the incoming audio.

Powered by two AA batteries, the SR-VRM1 can record up to eight hours with 48V off and five hours with 48V on.

    Saramonic SR-VRM1 Reviews

    SR-VRM1 Plug-On Linear PCM Recorder for XLR Microphones is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small Unit, Big Performance Bought one a week ago to meet a very special need for remote double system sound.? Coupled with an older Audio-Technica shotgun mic it brings back the goods.? We appreciate the simplicity of starting and stopping the recording in the field. This unit is often at quite a distance from the camera.? Even so we get good enough recordings to do short lip sync segments. Right now, we are shooting in the open deck of a fishing boat.? The SR-VRM1 is clamped to an overhead rail near the action.? Our cam wanders about the boat.? The result is the presence of "close up" audio coupled with a variety of interesting video. The XLR connector is NOT too tight.? The female on the unit has three polymer strips to prevent noise which would be transmitted from mic to unit by a lose connection.? There is also a spring-loaded ring that has to be compressed by the metal shell of the male connector.? The combination makes connected mic to recorder hard, but not impossible. And, it's a silent connection when working in the field. My only serious complaint is no mini-USB port to upload recordings directly into a computer.? Removing the mini-SD card each time is a misery for my fat fumble fingers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Probably not again but good for now Definitely nice and small but the trade-off for that is a wee bit noisy of a pre amp. I do like how it records to an SD card directly/has zero latency monitoring and takes needing the computer out of the equation in terms of getting away from noisy sound sources. I set it around 30-40% (2025 out of 60) on a ldc mic and it works fine. I want to get a shotgun mic and have this unit plus that as a mobile recording rig when on vacation for voice over.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good product for non studio audio I bought this for its portability and to mainly plug lavs into. It sounds pretty good though isn't as full a sound as my Zoom H5 or F4 but that's to be expected. Easy to set up and use. Heavier than I expected but tough because of it, plus the XLR connector is REALLY tight for someone like me who has old wrist injuries. Overall a quality product for audio on the fly.
