HHB debuted the CDR882 DualBurn professional audio CD recorder.
It is compatible with CD-R media, both low and high speed up to 52X, including HHB’s recently released CDR80HS 2X-52X disc.
The CDR882 supports extended recording time across two or more discs, as well as simultaneous recording of two discs, high-speed duplication and disc management. Full 24-bit A/D and D/A converters with noise-shaped dither onto CD combine with a quartz crystal-derived internal clock and audiophile-grade analog circuitry to deliver sonic performance, according to the company.
The CDR882 weighs in at 14.7 pounds, and uses IDE CD-R drives mounted in a steel 2U rack-mounting chassis. Connectivity includes balanced XLR analog I/O, unbalanced phono analog I/O, balanced XLR AES/EBU digital I/O, coaxial and optical S/PDIF digital I/O, external word clock input, RS-232 remote control and parallel control interface. The sample rate converter accepts digital signals from 32-96 kHz, and the CDR882 ships with an infrared remote control.
Track ID can be manually created; or auto-generated from digital input, audio level threshold or time period, both of which are user-definable. When recording across two or more discs, track IDs are inserted when the next disc starts, and where the user-definable fade out and fade in start and finish. With an overlap between the two discs, the whole program can either be played back uninterrupted in the CDR882, or reconstructed in a DAW using the track IDs to align the audio from the two or more discs.
Additionally, the unit supports CD Text.
