The DA-98HR takes the 24-bit recording engine of the DA-78HR and adds critical features specifically designed for the rigors of post production and the highest end of commercial recording facilities. Its inclusion of multichannel AES/EBU digital I/O provides instant integration into digital patchbays, DAWs, and other systems. The DA-98HR can be controlled with standard DTRS remotes, or via serial 9-pin. A DA-98HR can be used while synchronized to other recorders so that backup tapes can be constructed as the session progresses. For the most critical recording applications, the DA-98HR's superb audio fidelity, exceptional speed, easy integration, and proven reliability make it the ultimate DTRS recorder ever made.
