Tascam DR-07MKII Handheld Audio Recorder Now Includes Adjustable Mics

Its $279.99 MSRP will probably keep it out of the hands of most students looking to record lectures, but for professionals capturing an interview or even an impromptu performance, Tascam’s new DR-07MKII provides a bit of flexibility. Most high-end, all-in-one audio recorders these days feature a set of stereo condenser mics in an XY configuration (pointed in towards each other) but the DR-07MKII allows you to flip them out to an AB configuration as well, better suited for capturing audio from a larger source, like a choir for example.

As far as other features go, the DR-07MKII has everything that’s standard these days with these types of recorders, including high quality WAV or MP3 recording capabilities, auto or manual levels setting, a peak reduction function to automatically set the optimal recording level, an overdub mode which also keeps a copy of the original clip, a built-in reverb effect and support for microSDHC cards up to 32GB in size. And on a set of easily replaceable AA batteries it can record for 17+ hours. Available March 31.
