Sony CDRW 66

24 bit AD/DA conversion
The CDR-W66 offers 24-bit conversion via its analogue inputs and outputs. This gives audio high quality in a 2 track mastering device.

Sample Rate Conversion
The Sample Rate Converters (SRC) on the W66 can cope with signals from 32kHz up to the new standard of 96kHz. Providing future proofing and further system flexibility. The SRC is bypassed when a 44.1kHz signal is recognised.

Super Bit Mapping technology.
Super Bit Mapping (SBM) – provides high quality recording, noise reduction and noise shaping. The technology used provides near 20-bit quality.

Selectable on board digital Parametric EQ
Sony offer the added feature of on board Parametric equalisation. A variable 3-band eq is available to add or subtract some subtle tonal colouring to your final mix.
Selectable built in digital Limiter

CD text compatibility.
CD text gives the ability to label your tracks, so as each track is retrieved you can see its name on the display of your CD player. Information can be input via the remote commander or an optional PC keyboard that directly connects to the back of the W66 and also offers transport control functions.
An optional PS/2 (PC keyboard) keyboard can be connected to enter CD Text and provide remote control of Play, Pause, Stop, FF, Rew and AMS+/AMS- functions.

Audio inputs and outputs
The CDR-W66 is able to deliver full system integration by offering various input and output formats. 24 bit AD/DA’s are offered on balanced XLR’s for the analogue user. The professional digital user is offered all formats – AES/EBU, co-axial and optical.

Word Sync
Combine all the digital i/o options with the ability to ‘Word Sync’ and the W66 displays its Professional system integration.

High Speed Duplication
By cascading two CDR-W66 machines together you can achieve high-speed duplication. Duplication of works in half the time of recording.

Digital Limiter and Equaliser
A digital limiter and equaliser are available for use when the input signal is from an analogue source.
Digital Limiter
The algorithm of the digital limiter increases the average signal level and smoothly limits signal peaks. The limiting ratio is adjustable up to 100%, at which setting the gain is increased by 6 dB.
Digital Equaliser
A 3-band equaliser provides up to 6 dB of correction to low/medium/high frequencies in 1 dB steps
