Marantz Unveils Portable Recorder
Publish date:

Marantz Professional recently introduced the CDR300, the company's first portable CD recorder. The CDR300 is designed for stand-alone recording. It offers the functionality of a professional tape recorder but records to blank CD-R/RW media. Recorded discs will play back in most CD players.
Users place the compact unit on a table-top, plug it into an AC electrical outlet or use the optional external battery and record live using either the internal microphone or external microphones that attach to stereo XLR or 1/4-inch mic/line inputs. A preamplifier is built into the unit, so an external mixer or mic preamp is unnecessary. A speaker or headphone jack in the unit allows users to monitor the recording. RCA analog inputs/outputs and a digital (S/PDIF) input/output are provided on the rear panel.
High and low EQ and high and band pass filtering can be independently adjusted for each mic/line input in the preset menu. 48-V phantom power is available for condenser microphones. The unit also provides manual or automatic level control, a limiter and digital level meters. For more information, including pricing, contact Marantz in Illinois at (630) 820-4800 or visit
