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.
Introduced in 2005, the recording mic is used by a long list of broadcasters and news organizations....
