Audio Broadcast Long Play PER 368: The long-playing version of Audio Broadcast PER 528 for recording both on portable (Nagra, Stellavox) and stationary equipment for radio production features black backcoating, outstanding winding characteristics, extra high-output, wide dynamic range, low noise, very low print-through and excellent winding properties for flangeless hub operation.
Studio condenser microphone
MC420: The Nevaton MC420 is a classically designed studio condenser microphone that is well suited for voice-over, post-production and broadcast. It is available with cardioid and omni-directional polar patterns. It shares the same 24mm large-diaphragm capsule as the Nevaton MC51, and carries a linear sensitivity throughout its entire frequency range. The amplifier is built to the Class A transformerless standard, and all transistors pass a special selection process to guarantee minimal self-noise levels. The MC420 operates on 48V phantom power, and a gold-plated XLR-connector is used as an output connector. It can handle an SPL up to 135dB without distortion. The microphone's internal components are elastically mounted to lower vibration and handling noise to an absolute minimum.
Two-channel four-band equalizer
Automated Processes Inc. (API)
Arsenal Audio R24: The Arsenal R24 features two identical channels of equalization modeled after the classic APSI model 562. The R24 is rack-mounted with internal power supply and delivers an affordable combination of rugged construction and solid performance. Individual continuously variable control knobs allow for separate adjustment of frequency and gain. All four bands are peak/dipping parametric design with 12dB of boost/cut per band. EQ in/out is controlled by classic toggle switches. The Arsenal R24 includes a custom transformer-balanced output with extended headroom of +23dB.
Portable field recorder
PMD661: Based on the design of the PMD660, the Marantz PMD661 is big enough to accommodate dual XLR microphones and light enough for handheld use. Digital recording is at 44.1/48/96kHz sample rate at 16- or 24-bit quantization. Features include stable, reliable SD or SDHC memory cards; WAV or MP3 recording format; large, easy-to-read OLED display; ergonomic, one-touch transport controls; two XLR inputs, mic/line switchable with +48V phantom power; S/PDIF digital input, plus a spare 1/8" stereo line in; RCA stereo line level outputs; USB 2.0 port for easy file transfer and 1/4" headphone jack with volume control.
