United States
English
10 June 2010 — D&M Professional Europe has announced the launch of two new rackmount solid state recorders from Denon Professional. The full rack size DN-F650R SD card and USB recorder, and half rack size DN-F450R SD card recorder are intended as cost effective replacements for cassette, DAT, MD and CDR systems in a whole range of professional applications.

The Denon DN-F650R is a highly versatile professional solid state recorder offering recording to and between SD/SDHC flash card and USB external drives. Designed to fulfill the most demanding playback and recording applications in AV installation, audio production, live sound, theatre and broadcast, the DN-F650R is a professionally specified, up to date replacement for cassette, DAT, MD, CDR and commodity PC based systems currently fulfilling such roles. Balanced XLR analogue audio and AES/EBU digital I/Os are featured, as well as unbalanced analogue and SPDIP connectivity. Serial, parallel and contact closure remote control are supported, and the unit can be operated with Denon’s latest RC-F400S ‘Hot Start’ serial remote controller.

The OLED display and easy file search jog wheel enable simple front panel operation. A USB keyboard input allows for simple file name editing. A variety of playback modes includes single, repeat, random, continuous and skip back play. Pitch control (between +20 and –40%), tempo lock, and a headphone out with volume control are also included.

Stereo and mono audio channels are simultaneously available and both WAV and MP3 file formats are supported, with selectable sample rates of 96, 48 and 44.1 kHz, 24 and 16 bit resolution, and MP3 bit rates between 32 and 320 kbps. Cascade recording and file management capabilities between the SD / SDHC card and connected USB drive, and USB connectivity to PC enables file transfer.

Despite its professional specification, build quality and feature set, the DN-F650R is highly affordable at just €625 mmrp ex tax.

The DN-F450R offers a simplified, cost competitive solid state recording and playback capability. Derived from the DN-F650R, the half rack size unit provides for recording and playback to and from SD and SDHC flash memory cards, with USB connectivity to PC for file management and transfer. Balanced analogue inputs on XLR are featured alongside unbalanced I/O. Stereo and mono audio channels are simultaneously available, and PCM WAV and MP3 file formats are supported, with the same sample rate and bit rate selectivity as the DN-F650R. Serial and contact closure remote control are supported, and a headphone out with volume control is included. Selectable playback modes, power on auto play, marking and mark search, audible quick search, and easy file search with the front panel jog wheel are all featured.

At just €425 mmrp ex tax, the DN-F450R provides a highly cost competitive SD recording and playback capability for a whole range of broadcast, production, live sound, theatre, and AV installation applications.
