Take it Anywhere
Robust, rugged, and ready to travel, the R-1 is built to withstand the rigors of the road. Capture the sounds of nature, record live music, use it as an MP3 player, plug it into your studio gear or stereo for playback .... The R-1 runs on two AA batteries or from the included AC adaptor.
The R-1 combines a portable MP3 player with a high-quality MP3/WAV recorder.
Edirol chose to use top-grade components for the R-1, which can record/ playback at 24-bit audio resolution without compression.
Audio recorded in the R-1 is stored as stereo files directly onto removable CompactFlash cards, allowing for maximum flexibility in recording time.
Up to nine format-quality modes are provided, ranging from 64~320kbps MP3 compression to 24-bit linear WAV format.
Electrolytic capacitors provide stable, reliable power to the analogue circuits, eliminating DC interference and supplying low-distortion sound.
IARC (Isolated Adaptive Recording Circuit):
The input circuitry of the R-1 provides a separate power supply between the Analog Limiter and AD converter. This eliminates DC interference and results in an overall better quality recording.
Record via Built-In Mic or External Inputs
Need to record audio quickly and easily but without compromising professional results? The R-1 is equipped with a pair of omni-directional Back Electret Condenser Microphones for quick and clean capture.
It offers high results from the internal microphones because it is completely solid state : the R-1 makes no noise itself for the internal mics to pick up. Just press the REC button, the level indicator pops up on the display, and you're instantly ready to record.
The R-1 also lets you record audio through both external microphone and line inputs. The Mic port supports either stereo dynamic or plug-in powered electret condenser types.
The R-1 offers pro-quality internal effect processing, such as microphone simulator, noise suppressor, hum-cut, EQ, reverb, center cancel, and more. The EQ of the R-1 offers a variety of presets and even provides Tuner and Metronome functions.
In addition to the headphone output and external audio inputs, the R-1 can connect to computers via USB 2.0 for importing/exporting WAV / MP3 audio files.
The R-1’s headphone jack also doubles as a S/PDIF optical out, so you can stream audio to digital equipment such as digital speakers or DAT/CD/MD.
