The DN-700R is a flexible, professional, multi-format digital recorder with comprehensive I/O, useful for a wide range of applications in theaters and houses-of-worship, educational facilities, production and broadcast studios, and live performance. It also boasts notable network capabilities. It is intuitive in application, too; upon first use, I barely cracked its quick start guide, easily digging in to capture stereo tracks from a live performance via the USB thumb drive on its front panel.
The unit records to SD/SDHC and USB media in MP3 and WAV formats, up to 24-bit/96 kHz. Key features include the Dual Record feature, which allows recording to two media options simultaneously for primary and backup recording, and its Relay Record feature, which continues recording to backup media when the selected (primary) media is full. Further, File Archiving features via FTP are available with a continuous, 24/7 record feature, ensuring a single aural moment is never missed.
I/O features include independent and switchable XLR mic/line inputs with +48V phantom power provided for direct recording, dual RCA unbalanced analog inputs, AES/EBU XLR balanced and coaxial digital inputs, XLR and RCA analog dual outputs, and AES/EBU XLR balanced and RCA coaxial digital outputs. Other useful perks include some remote control functionalities, a front-panel USB keyboard connection for file information input, EDL marking and file edit functions, a record monitor setting and an easy-to-read OLED display on its front panel.
