TASCAM's latest MiniDisc recorder is the MD-02B, the industry's only choice for professional MiniDisc recording. The recorder features XLR balanced and RCA unbalanced analog inputs and outputs, as well as coaxial and optical digital ins and outs. It records to MiniDisc at ATRAC3 compression, and a disc can switch between Stereo, Mono, LP2 and LP4 modes.
TASCAM's MD-02B improves on the best-selling MD-350 by adding an optical digital connection, increased program play memory and automatic track increment by time or level. Fade in and fade out is also now available while recording.
Also available from TASCAM is the MD-CD1, a combination Minidisc recorder and CD player.
