Korg Has 1-Bit Mobile Recorders

Korg debuted its MR 1-bit professional mobile recorder, and says it is suitable for source recording, podcasting, broadcast journalism and archiving final mixes and master recordings.
The handheld unit is capable of 1-bit/2.8 MHz recording and playback, while the tabletop MR-1000 delivers up to 1 bit/5.6 MHz. Both MR recorders support multiple recording formats including DSDIFF, DSF and WSD 1-bit formats, as well as multibit PCM format (BWF) with resolutions to 24 bit/192 kHz.
The MR-1000 has low-impedance mic preamps with balanced XLR 1/4-inch inputs with phantom power and limiting, plus XLR and RCA outputs. The MR-1 offers dual mini balanced inputs, an included stereo electret condenser mic and a stereo headphone jack.
The company says 1-bit recording offers fidelity, low noise floor, extended dynamic range, lifelike imaging and analog quality depth. The format can be converted to other bit depths and sample rates without error or degradation, it says.
