Tascam has introduced the UH-7000, a microphone preamp and audio interface, designed with an emphasis on low noise and high audio quality.
The UH-7000 can be used as a 4-in/4-out audio interface in a DAW production environment, and also as a standalone microphone preamp and A/D / D/A converter.
The built-in HDIA (High Definition Instrumentation Architecture) microphone preamps are newly designed and perform at ?128 dBu equivalent input noise, a signal-to-noise ratio of 117 dB and distortion of 0.0009 % or less.
According to Tascam, the UH-7000’s sound quality is “partially due to the careful attention spent on selecting parts. In addition to Burr-Brown converters and metal thin-film resistors, installed is a powerful TCXO clock generator with a precision of ±1 ppm.”
The UH-7000 has a street price of US $600. See the Tascam site for details.
