Company’s New Audio Interface Features A Newly Designed Hdia Architecture, Intended For A Fully-Balanced Signal Path
(Las Vegas, Nevada--April 8, 2014) TASCAM, a division of TEAC America and part of Gibson Brands, Inc., will be presenting its new UH-7000 USB Mic Pre to the broadcast market for the first time at the 2014 NAB Show (Booth SL4230). The 4x4-channel audio interface is a standalone microphone preamp that features the company’s HDIA (High Definition Instrumentation Architecture), an entirely new design for microphone preamps, which ensures clean sound reproduction with a high resolution.
The UH-7000 is ideal for a recording or live setup, and can be also be used for home recording with a computer. With a fully-balanced signal path from input to output (in standalone mic pre mode) and enhanced instrumentation amplifier architecture, the UH-7000 includes new premium components to achieve a -128 dBU noise floor, 117 dB signal-to-noise ratio and 0.0009 percent THD rating. Additionally, dual-sided PCM4220 A/D converters capture mic or line inputs at up to 192kHz/24-bit resolution. For monitoring and line output, the UH-7000 coerces audio through a Burr Brown DA converter for fluid and honest sound reproduction.
“The specs of the UH-7000 easily beat any other solution in its price range,” explains Garyn Jones, Marketing Manager for TASCAM. “Therefore, we’re able to provide the most affordable mic pre with the cleanest possible signal path for your audio. What’s more, the temperature-compensated internal clock offers 1PPM resolution and has jitter limiting functionality, which is better than standalone clock generators that sell for twice the price.”
Another crucial component of the UH-7000 is its audiophile-designed +48V phantom power supply and extra-large power transformer. Additionally, the mic pre/interface has a solid aluminum structure; meticulously calibrated knobs for smooth, custom-tapered gain setting and bright 20-segment LED peak meters to accurately convey each channel’s true level. The device is also equipped with two XLR balanced inputs and outputs, two balanced 1/4-inch inputs, and an AES/EBU digital out.
TASCAM, part of Gibson Brands, Inc., is the pro audio and home recording division of TEAC Corporation. TASCAM will continue to be instrumental in revolutionizing professional and home recording by offering the highest quality products at the best value to their customers.
