Why We Love This Product!

If This Handheld Recorder Got Any Smaller...

You'd need smaller hands. Luckily, TASCAM got it juuuuust right, when they came up with their new DR-05 handheld recorder. You see, this super-easy-to-use recorder's got all the right stuff, including a user interface with buttons big enough to press. But that's just the beginning. The DR-05 comes loaded with a pair of TASCAM's newly designed omni microphones, spread out to give you detailed stereo recordings. Able to record MP3s at up to 320 kbps and WAVs up to 24-bit/96kHz, the DR-05 is ready for pro-level work.

Speaking of pro-level work, check this out: the DR-05's got a Level Align feature, which keeps your stereo recordings from getting all lopsided... you know, like the way you hear after you've spent an evening at the local rock club, with your head in front of one of the stacks. On that note, you may not be able to handle high SPLs long, but the DR-05 can - 125dB is no match for these mics! Wanna just record yourself strumming your axe and yodeling incoherently? No problem. Set the DR-05 on a camera tripod (there's a mount in the back for that) and set the self timer. You get 5 or 10 seconds to assume the position and start rocking before the DR-05 starts recording. Cool huh? Buy a TASCAM DR-05 from GearNuts.com today, get it, and gloat to all your friends. You know you want to!

We were able to order the exact AC Power Adapter we needed and received it in no time. Thanks to GearNuts.com mu daughter is back on the keyboard! ’’ – Cheryl Dingwell-Keckritz

Send us your love letter

Cheryl... Around here, none of us wear power ties, and power lunches are few and far between. But when the Power Rangers are unavailable, and PowerBall just isn't bringing the money home like you hoped it would, it's great to remember that the powerful GearNuts.com store is here for all your power adapter needs!
