High performance, high resolution portable
Sony’s PCM-D100 audio recorder is designed to deliver the highest sound
quality in professional audio applications including live music events,
theatrical performances, and news gathering. The recorder supports the latest
high-resolution codecs and formats, including 192kHz/24bit PCM and DSD.
Compatibility with the DSD format enables the recording of source sounds
using digital signals, but in a format that closely resembles analogue
waveforms. Compatible with recording and playback in 192 kHz/24-bit linear PCM,
the unit can reproduce ultra-high range, delicate music components with
excellent audio quality from low to high range. Its broad playback frequency
band easily exceeds the audible band of 20 Hz to 25 kHz.
A highly sensitive directional microphone uses a new 15 mm unidirectional
mic unit. The mic’s sound collection range adjusts to suit various sounds, from
performances with a small number of people to concert halls with a large group
of performers. The highly sensitive, broadband recording functionality expresses
frequency properties up to 40 kHz, to maximize the advantages of DSD recording.
The PCM-D100 recorder has 32 GB of built-in flash memory and a combination
SD Card/Memory Stick slot for expandable storage. The recorder’s lightweight
metal aluminium body is built to withstand the demands of professional
applications and offers long battery life via four AA batteries (up to
approximately 11 hours in DSD (2.8 MHz/1-bit).
The PCM-D100 recorder is part of Sony’s newly announced High-Resolution
Audio initiative, a complete series of products designed to help music lovers
conveniently access and enjoy the digital music they love in the best playback
