Old Lyme, CT - Sep 21, 2009 - Sennheiser Electronics, the U.S. distributor for HHB, is now shipping the new HHB CDR-882 Dualburn professional CD recorder. With REC-REC drive configuration, the CDR-882 resolves the limitations of previous-generation CD recorders by supporting seamless extended recording time across two or more discs, as well as simultaneous recording of two discs, high-speed duplication and intelligent disc management. New firmware (v2.6), freely downloadable for existing units, is included with new units.
The CDR-882 features 24-bit A/D and D/A converters with noise-shaped dither and a quartz crystal-derived internal clock. 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. An on-board sample rate converter accepts digital signals from 32-96kHz, and the CDR-882 ships with an infrared remote control.
Current users can download the firmware update at the HHB website. The new firmware is fully compatible with existing CDR-882 recorders fitted with older drives. New firmware, vD03E, is also available to download for older drives and improves finalization and reduces data loss.
