The Tascam DR-2d is a portable audio recorder built for high quality sound recording and review. The system uses a stereo condenser microphone, and can record at up to 96 kHz in a 24-bit quality. Playback through the built-in speaker is enhanced with Variable Speed Audition, which allows faster playback without changing the pitch. A dual recording function is also built in to create a second copy of the audio at low quality on the fly, providing a backup in case of overload. An auto-recording function is available, enabling the unit to start recording once sound passes a certain volume. A USB 2.0 connection and 1/8 inch stereo headphone jack are available for output, and additional inputs are available through 1/8 inch microphone and line inputs.
