Marantz is exhibiting the CDR310 professional CD recorder, which offers long-term recording in uncompressed and MP3 formats, and has features such as optional battery operation for up to four hours.
Additional highlights include a microphone; microphone preamps with XLR connectors and 48 V phantom power for use with external condenser microphones; and the ability to record for hours, then finish the final project to the CD burner.
The burner creates audio discs for instant playback on a CD player; or data discs for transfer to a computer or for archiving purposes. Battery power capability — using AA batteries, or the optional RB1651 rechargeable battery — allows for up to four hours of remote operation without an external power supply.
The CDR310 also incorporates Background Record mode, which enables recording to remain active as a backup even when the unit is in Pause mode. Recording also can be active in Pre-Record mode for up to 10 seconds with the recorder stopped. Analog line-level inputs and outputs, and S/PDIF-format digital inputs and outputs allow connection to audio equipment.
