24-bit/96kHz handheld recorder with adjustable microphones for more accurate recording patterns.
The compact TASCAM Linear DR-08 PCM/MP3 Portable Digital Recorder packs serious audio quality into a handheld dynamo you can carry in your pocket. The DR-08 captures audiophile-quality 96kHz/24-bit WAV files— or web-friendly MP3 files—to robust MicroSD media.
The TASCAM DR-08 recorder's built-in microphones have a unique mechanism to change the width and angle of the elements, allowing you to tailor the pattern for the perfect recording. There's even a built-in kickstand for placing the DR-08 recorder right where you want it. A pair of AAA batteries enables you to record for hours to the included 2GB card, then transfer the recording to your computer using high-speed USB 2.0.
Like TASCAM's other best-selling portable recorders, the DR-08 has features like auto level control and a low-cut filter for clear recordings. Add your own microphone or line-level source using the 1/8" stereo input. The DR-08 has loop and variable speed on playback, allowing you to slow down speed without changing the pitch to learn new music. There's also noise canceling and EQ functions for improved playback timbre.
The TASCAM DR-08 is an ideal portable recorder for songwriters, live performers, business leaders, and even sound designers.

Comments about TASCAM DR-08 Linear PCM/MP3 Recorder:
I bought this to record speakers for later posting via a PC to a website. Excellent for this to replace another recording device. 32 gb of memory gives 24 hrs. recording time at mono mp3 quality. Very happy with the product!
