TASCAM Announces UH-7000 High-Resolution USB Interface & Microphone Preamp

New HDIA (High Definition Instrumentation Architecture) that makes it very well suited for solitary use outside of the digital channels

TASCAM has introduced the UH-7000 USB 4 x 4-channel audio interface and stand-alone microphone preamp.

The UH-7000 incorporates new HDIA (High Definition Instrumentation Architecture) that makes it very well suited for solitary use outside of the digital channels.

The mic pres feature a fully-balanced signal path from input to output, an instrumentation amplifier architecture, and premium components to achieve a -128 dBU noise floor, 117 dB signal-to-noise ratio and 0.0009 percent THD rating.

Dual-sided PCM4220 A/D converters capture mic or line inputs at up to 192 kHz/24-bit resolution. The temperature-compensated internal clock offers 1PPM resolution – better than many stand-alone clock generator, and limiting jitters for clean recordings. When monitoring and line output, the UH-7000 sends audio through a Burr Brown DA converter for fluid and honest sound reproduction.

Another crucial component of the UH-7000 is its power supply with an extra-large power transformer and other factors guarantee that all internal components work to their full potential.

The UH-7000 is housed in a solid aluminum structure, with knobs that are calibrated for smooth, custom-tapered gain setting and the bright 20-segment LED peak meters accurately convey each channel’s true level.

The device is equipped with two XLR balanced inputs with +48V phantom power, two balanced 1/4-inch inputs, two balanced XLR outputs, and AES/EBU digital out.
