Portable DSD Recorders
« on: October 04, 2018, 11:43:00 AM »
It looks like KORG is no longer making portable DSD recorders. I love my Tascam DA-3000 so much that I bought a second one. They’re linked as a 4-track. I rather not fly with a 4U rack so I need s portable DSD recorder. Any recommendations?

Ouch!   really cool, but expensive w/the $1700+ "music player" needed to go w/the recording sled.

Sony PCM-D100

I was looking at that but it only does 2.8MHz and I was hoping to get 5.6MHz, but it's a possibility, thanks.
I contacted sound devices last year asking if they had any DSD recorders coming in the future and they sound they can't comment on that.

I picked up an MR2 last year. Very happy with it as an entrance into DSD.  I looked into that AK gizmo but it was just too much $ to justify.
If I do another electronics project it will be a miniature DSD recorder.

If you can pick up a Korg MR-1000 for $500 or under I can recommend it.
Its lighter than I thought it would be and had very clean preamps. I never take mine out any more, but use it strictly for playback and renaming files.

They come up on eBay in flocks sometimes.

Here's another but hold out for one that has the bag, because its a nice bag.
this is definitely not normal

Thanks. I have a V2 so preamps not an issue. I'm gonna own one of these very soon.

Beware the MR1000's ability to suck dry cell batteries dry quickly. I don't own a portable p/s for mine as I use it infrequently in the field but when I have used it, it ran through 2 complete sets of batteries for 2 70 minute sets. Sounds great though! If you're always getting your power from the wall wart, no problems.

I’ll have AC so that shouldn’t be a problem but still good to know. Thanks

The MR-1000 is the best sounding deck i've ever used IMO in DSD without any doubt.

However i am not a fan of Hardrive recorders so i use the Korg MR-2 without any regrets.
