About Tascam DA-3000

The Tascam DA-3000 Stereo Master Recorder & ADDA Converter is a 2-track analog to digital/digital to analog converter that can be used as a digital recorder, converter, or monitoring system for mastering, mixing and tracking applications. It records to SDHC or CF cards and has a USB port that allows you to transfer files to and from an external flash drive. The DA-3000 can record analog or digital signals as stereo PCM files in up to 192kHz and stereo DSD files in up to 5.6MHz.

The DA-3000 was built with dual-mono circuitry to reduce interference between channels to allow for more accurate audio capture. Both the left and right channels conversion is via their BurrBrown PCM1795 converter chip. The unit has a fanless design to reduce internal noise. Visual monitoring of your signals is provided via the front-panel 24-dot level meter.

The recorder provides a variety of input and output in both the analog and digital domain. Stereo XLR and RCA inputs and outputs allow you to connect to most analog sources, while S/PDIF, AES/EBU and SDIF-3 digital connections allow you to integrate a variety of digital sources. You can control the DA-3000 with the included remote control.

Tascam DA-3000 Features

  • Stereo Recording at High Sampling Frequencies Up to 192kHz PCM and 5.6MHz DSD: The DA-3000 is perfectly designed for stereo PCM/DSD recordings at high sampling frequencies suitable for archival masters
  • Variety of Inputs and Outputs to Handle Diverse Recording Situations: The variety of inputs and outputs enable connection with all types of studio equipment, including audio interfaces and mic preamps. The analog inputs and outputs include both XLR and RCA jacks
  • Upgraded User Interface: With the goal of making a high-quality audio recorder and ADDA converter easy to use, designed the front panel with all of the necessary external controls and included long, brightly lit meters and display
  • Simultaneous Multitrack Recording and Playback with Multiple Cascaded Units: You can synchronize the operation of multiple DA-3000 units by interconnecting their digital inputs and outputs. Files that have been recorded in sync will have sample-level synchronization as well
  • Dual Mono Circuits Eliminate Interference Between Left and Right Channels: Use of a dual mono structure for the output circuit eliminates interference between the left and right channels and achieves high audio quality by maximizing the performance of the components
  • Low Noise with Fully-Balanced Circuitry and High-Quality AD Converters: The internal circuit uses a fully-balanced structure that is completely resistant to noise from the inputs and outputs. This has a great effect on the output and input stage impacting the recorded audio
  • Numerous High-Quality Parts Selected After Month of Evaluation Tests: Operational amplifiers have a great impact on audio quality. In addition, selected low-impedance capacitors featuring low resistance, low noise and high precision to emphasize audio quality
  • Power Supply Section and High-Precision TCXO Support High-Audio Quality: In order to assure high-quality audio input and output, a stable power supply is indispensable. The EI core transformer has separate coils one for the digital circuits and control panels & one for the analog circuits
  • Fanless Design Eliminates Unwanted Noise: Cooling fans inside equipment generate noise and can cause loss of accuracy when monitoring at low volume levels. With the DA-3000, achieved high performance in a fanless design, allowing you to maintain a comfortable monitoring environment
