When you buy a Shure microphone you are buying uncompromised precision, performance, ruggedness and reliability in “real world” usage.
To back it up, Shure has the most stringent quality assurance testing program in the business. Before it can bear the Shure name, a mic must
be able to withstand extended exposure to extremes in temperature (-20° to 165°F) and humidity (100% at room temperature), ultraviolet
rays, salt spray, alcohol, sand and water. Also, violent vibrations, “drop tests” (repeated drops from six feet onto hardwood floors) and ten
days of repeated cycling between simulated arctic and tropical environments. If the mic doesn’t work after all this, it’s not a Shure. This dedication has made Shure “The Sound of the Professionals Worldwide” for decades. And that's why you’ll find Shure microphones virtually
everywhere—on stages, lecterns, remote broadcast locations and production sets all over the world.

RE-27ND
Variable-D Dynamic Cardioid Studio Microphone
The RE27N/D uses the proven Variable-D concept pioneered by the legendary RE20, but incorporates

to maintain a uniform low-frequency response, up close or at a distance. In addition, it features three
switchable filters – one high frequency and two low frequency. An internal blast/wind filter covers the
microphone head/vents along the mic body, preventing P-pops, breath sounds, or excessive sibilance.

Neodymium, also known as N/DYM or N/D, is a rare-earth element which, when magnetized, is four times more
powerful than a normal magnet. Electro-Voice, the developers of N/DYM technology, found that N/D dynamic
microphones give equivalent condenser performance without the condenser microphone drawbacks of dead batteries,
failing phantom power, or problem operation in high humidity.

SONY
ECM-44/55/66/77
Lavalier Microphones
AUDIO
Sony’s lavalier microphones are manufactured to meet the most demanding professional broadcast and recording requirements. They are designed to deliver the highest level of performance and reliability. There are four primary lavalier mics
in the series, offering different sizes and applications. Additionally, they offer three big advantages over other systems.
High Performance
Sony’s lavalier microphones are distinguished by their superior performance,
as represented by the wide (40Hz~20kHz) frequency response of the topof-the-line ECM-77B. They will more than measure up to your expectations.
696
Wide Selection
The Sony lavalier series is comprised of four models, each finished in black
plating. Designed with the most advanced technology, the ECM-77B is the smallest
and lightest. The uni-directional ECM-66B is the answer to the specific demands of
close-miking of musical instruments. The popular ECM-55B incorporates a 10.6mm
omni-directional capsule for versatility, while the ECM-44B offers high performance at a
lower cost. With each model designed for a specific application, you will be able to find the one
that’s just right for you. There is also a full line of lavalier accessories available.
Increased Reliability and Convenience
Increased reliability is another important plus for these microphones. Careful attention is paid to make the capsule
immune to external noise and adverse ambient conditions. The cable is strengthened to achieve a high resistance to
damage caused by over flexing. A readily available “AA” battery is employed for its long life and easy replacement.
ECM-77B Omni-directional Condenser
Microphone
At only 1⁄4˝ x 1⁄2˝, and a mere 1.5 grams, the
ECM-77B is microscopic, yet has a frequency
response extending from 40Hz to 20,000 Hz.
Increased mechanical impedance using a metal
vaporized, fine ceramic backplate provides the
ECM-77B’s exceptional frequency response.
And, by design, the ceramic backplate assures
resistance to humidity and temperature
extremes for increased reliability. Combined
with advanced techniques for sealing the capsule and advanced design for the acoustic
housing, the ECM-77B delivers sound that is
audibly superior and more pleasing than any
other lavalier mic. Ideal for TV broadcasting and stage applications where the highest quality
microphone must be inconspicuous, it not only enables unobtrusive miking, but also minimizes glare. Even when hidden inside a costume, its frequency response is wide enough to pick
up the voice with no perceptible change in quality, while minimizing the pick-up of rustling
noise.

K6 SERIES
Modular Electret Condenser Microphone System
700
AUDIO
The K6 series is designed to bring uncompromised studio quality
sound and ruggedness to the broadcast and field recording markets.
At the heart of the K6 series is the K6 power supply. The K6 is the
back end of the multimike system and accommodates a balanced, low
impedance 3-pin XLR output connector.
The modular design of the K6 power supply allows you to quickly convert
from any one of six microphone capsules simply by unscrewing the current capsule from the K6 and replacing it with another. Each capsule has a different
polar pattern making the K6 series flexible enough for any situation.
Choose from omni-directional to highly directional shotgun mics suitable
for boom pole and camera mounting as well as a lavalier capsule ideal
for on air talent and live theater applications. A K6 Power Module plus a
few mic capsules gives you the flexibility that would otherwise require investing in a number of individual mics.
K6/K6P Powering Modules
What is an
Electret Condenser Microphone?
In contrast to other audio frequency condenser microphones, the electret condenser
does not require an external polarization
voltage to be applied to the capsule. Instead
a permanent electric field is “frozen” via special processes on the material of the capsule
elements. The permanent electric field of an
electret can be compared to the permanent
magnetic field of a magnet. A light
diaphragm moved by sound in the electric
field will cause analogous shifts in the electric charge between diaphragm and backelectret, which after undergoing level and
impedance shifts by integrated circuits will
give a standard mic level signal.
The back-electret microphones constitute an
important class of microphones. For a group
of high-quality microphones Sennheiser utilizes the so called back-electret technology.
In these microphones the electric field originates at the stationary counter electrode
rather than at an electret diaphragm. This
technique results in a much improved transient response and superior attenuation of
handling noises.

MKE-300 Camcorder Microphone
The MKE-300 complements the excellent video capabilities of most camcorders with the
superior audio they deserve. The electret condenser microphone element delivers sonic
clarity and high output. Ideally suited for mounting on camcorders due to its integrated
shoe assembly, the MKE-300 is compact and extremely lightweight (2.1 oz.). Given its
super-cardioid polar pattern, the MKE-300 has the ability to pick up only those sounds
that correspond to the scene being filmed and rejects any disturbing ambient noise. This
high directivity also attenuates the sounds made by a camcorder’s autofocus and zoom motors. The microphone’s suspension mount assembly
and integrated windscreen virtually eliminates handling and wind noise. Achieving operating times of over 200 hours using its own built in battery.
■ Super-cardioid/Uni-directional
■ Mountable on a wide variety of cameras
■ Electret condenser element
■ Includes coiled output cable with 1⁄8˝ (3.5mm) mini plug
■ Suspension-mounted for rejection of structure borne noises

The ME-65 is a super-cardioid handheld microphone especially suited
to vocal and speech applications. It has a matte black, anodized,
scratch-resistant finish that will look great on camera. The linear
directivity across it’s entire frequency range will ensure excellent feedback rejection. Can handle extremely high sound pressure levels, has
high sensitivity, a wide frequency range and integrated pop filter.

AUDIO
RF Condenser Microphones
Unlike traditional condenser microphones, the capacitive transducer in Sennheiser condenser
microphones is part of a tuned RF-discriminator circuit. Its output is a relatively low
impedance audio signal which allows further processing by conventional bi-polar low noise
solid state circuits. Sennheiser microphones achieve a balanced floating output without the
need for audio transformers, and insures a fast, distortion-free response to audio transients
over an extended frequency range. The RF-design yields exceptionally low noise levels
and is virtually immune to humidity and moisture. The comparatively low RF-voltage across the elements of the transducer also eliminates arcing and DC-bias creeping currents. Sennheiser employs RF-technology to control residual microphone
noise. Optimizing the transducer’s acoustic impedance results in a further
improvement in low noise performance. Sennheiser studio condenser microphones operating according to this RF-principle have proven their superior
ruggedness and reliability in the past decades under every conceivable environmental condition.
MKH-20 Omni-Directional
MKH-60 Super-Cardioid/Lobe
Low distortion push-pull element, transformerless RF condenser, flat
frequency response, diffuse/near-field response switch (6 dB boost at
10 KHz), switchable 10dB pad to prevent overmodulation. Handles
142dB SPL with a high output level. Ideal for concert, Mid-Side

extremely high SPL (135 dB). Ideal for broadcasting, film, video,
sports recording and interviews in crowded or noisy environments.
Excellent for studio voice-overs.
MKH-30 Figure-Eight
The symmetrical transducer design of the MKH-30 produces an
unusually wide and smooth frequency response. Particularly suited to
soloists and small instrumental groups, it can also serve as an ‘S’ or
side microphone in MS stereo applications. As a support microphone
it is particularly useful in the effective suppression of sounds from
adjacent sound sources.
MKH-40 Cardioid
Highly versatile, low distortion push-pull element, transformerless RF
condenser, high output level, transparent response, switchable proximity
equalization (-4dB at 50Hz) and pre-attenuation of 10dB to prevent
overmodulation. Excellent results have been achieved in vocal applications when used with a pop screen. Recommended for most situations,
including digital recording, overdubbing vocals, percussion, acoustic guitars, piano, brass and string instruments, mid-side (M-S) stereo, and
conventional X-Y stereo.
MKH-50 Super-Cardioid
The super-cardioid MKH-50 offers a higher attenuation of side and
rear sounds than the cardioid MKH-40. It is principally designed for
use as a soloist's or spot microphone for applications requiring a high
degree of side-borne sound muting and feedback rejection while maintaining the integrity of on- and off-axis sound fields.

The MKH 80 is a variable pattern condenser microphone with five
switchable pick-up patterns. It is a superior microphone for any
recording application, offering high clarity and the absolute minimum
coloration. It is visually unobtrusive due to its compact design.
MKH-416P48-U3 Super-Cardioid/Lobe
Transformerless, RF condenser designed as a combination of pressure
gradient and interference tube microphones. Very good feedback rejection, low proximity effect, 128dB/SPL. Rugged and resistant to
changing climate conditions. Ideal for boom, fishpole, and camera

FEATURES
UT4 Receiver
714
■ Exclusive MARCAD (MAximum Ratio
Combining Audio Diversity) circuitry
continuously processes the RF signal from
each antenna and combines them to produce one signal of optimum quality.
■ Unbalanced 1/4˝ phone plug and bal-
anced XLR connectors for simultaneous
output to different devices. XLR output is
selectable between mic and line level.
■ Multiple receivers can be stacked or rack-
mounted, with two receivers fitting into
the optional URT rack mount tray.
■ Three-inch rubberized antennas perform
as well as telescoping antennas but with
greater durability.
■ Yellow diversity A/B lights glow when RF
(radio frequency) signals are received
from the UT1 or UT2 transmitter. When
only one light is glowing, the signal is
being received on only one antenna.
When both lights are glowing, the UT4 is
receiving signals on both antennas.
■ Green light indicates that the receiver is
plugged into an electrical outlet. A red
audio peak indicator light flickers when
the input signal from the transmitter
approaches clipping.
■ Volume knob increases or decreases the
volume of the receiver output.
■ Noise squelch circuit analyzes signal qual-
ity as opposed to signal strength, allowing
the circuit to discriminate between noise
and desired signal. This reduces noise
burst due to environmental RF noise.

UHF Synthesized Wireless Microphone System
718
AUDIO
Sony’s UHF Synthesized Wireless Microphone System, consisting of handheld and bodypack transmitters and 4 different receivers, is widely recognized as the outstanding
wireless mic system for professional applications.
Operating in the 800 MHz UHF band range and
equipped with a PLL (Phase Locked Loop), they provide
up to 94 channels of interference-free operation. With
their user-selectable channels, complete multiple channel
operation is possible. Additional features, like space diversity reception, LCD indicators, reliable and sophisticated
circuit technology assure low noise, wide dynamic range,
and extremely stable signal transmission and reception. An
affordable system with superb audio quality and easy handling, the Sony UHF Synthesized system is the ultimate in
convenience for applications at broadcasting stations, film
production facilities, and in ENG/EFP work.
FEATURES
800 MHz UHF Band
Operation
■ Unlike the heavily used VHF band, the
area around 800 MHz in the UHF band
is underused. With this lower activity, the
systems are not affected by external noise
and interference caused by other wireless
systems and provide for low noise transmission and reception.
PLL Synthesized System
■ A PLL (Phase Locked Loop) synthesized
system controls the transmission and
reception frequencies of the system. It
assures stability and easy access to multiple channel frequencies. Equipped with a
PLL synthesized control system, Sony’s
UHF Synthesized system provides up to
94 selectable frequencies.
Channel Setting Backup
■ Each unit has a convenient memory back-
Pre-Programmed Channels
■ Wireless channels are conveniently preset
in each tuner for use in a multi-channel
operation at one location. The UHF
Synthesized System employs 6 channel
plans with up to 19 channels for simultaneous multi-operation use. The use of
preset channels instead of random selection of channels prevents interference such
as beat noise in multi-channel operation
and guarantees better unit isolation.
Easy-to-Read LCD Display
■ All of the transmitters and receivers have
built-in LCD displays. They provide
extensive information on group, battery
status, AF level, etc. Employing a back
light, these indicators can be seen even in
low-light situations.
Wide Dynamic Range
and Low Noise
■ The UHF Synthesized System employs a
Squelch Control
■ To ensure accurate audio reproduction,
the UHF Synthesized System is equipped
with tone squelch circuitry control. Here’s
how it works: the transmitters broadcasts
audio signals together with a 32 KHz
tone signal. Only after receiving the tone
signals will the receivers reproduce the
audio signals for output. This function
eliminates external noise and other
unwanted signals.
up capability. When the Power switch is
turned on, the previous channel setting is
automatically recalled and displayed.
We Exhibit At NAB, Infocomm, and Siggraph
Compander (Compressor/Expander) system
for optimum transmission over a wide dynamic range with low noise and interference.
Space Diversity
Reception System
■ A space diversity reception system is
equipped with two or more antennas used
to eliminate noise and signal dropouts,
thus ensuring stable reception. An additional benefit of this system is stable
reception and cleaner audio at extended
operating distances.

FP-410
Automatic Microphone Mixer
Noise-Adaptive Threshold:
MaxBus:
Last Mic Lock-On:
Distinguishes between constant background
noise (such as air-conditioning) and rapidly
changing sound (such as speech). This function continuously adjusts the activation
threshold so only speech levels that are louder than background noise will activate an
FP-410 channel.
Eliminates the poor audio quality that
results when a speaker is picked up by more
than one microphone. It does this by controlling the number of microphones that
may be activated for a single sound source.
With MaxBus, one talker will activate only
one FP-410 channel, even if multiple microphones are “hearing” that talker.
Maintains a seamless audio mix by keeping
the most recently activated microphone
open until a newly activated mic takes its
place. Without this function, a long pause
in conversation might cause all mics to turn
off and sound as if the audio signal has been
lost. With Last Mic Lock-On, background
ambience is always present.
It’s somewhat like having multiple video cameras all focused on the
same subject. If the camera signals are combined, the result is a
blurred image. When multiple microphones are open for a single
talker, the result is a blurred audio signal. But it’s often not practical
for someone to turn mics on when they are needed and off when
they are not. The answer is the FP-410.
The FP-410 has numerous applications in video production and
audio recording, broadcasting, and sound reinforcement. In any
speech pickup application with multiple microphones, the FP-410
dramatically improves audio quality. Switching from manual to automatic operation allows an individual’s voice to rise above background
noise and reverberation to become clearer and more intelligible.
■ Four XLR-balanced inputs and two XLR-
balanced outputs. Each can be individually set for microphone or line-level signals.

Multiple miking situations—with a number of talkers participating—have always presented problems for the audio technician. If
too few mics are used, the coverage of each talker may vary, with
one talker (nearest the mic) being louder and clearer than the next.
Talkers farthest from the mics will sound “echoey” and reverberant,
as very little of the direct sound from their mouths reaches the
microphones. If too many mics are used, there’s more background
noise and reverberation pickup, as well as less gain before feedback
if a sound reinforcement (PA) system is used.
The FP-410 automatically attenuates any microphone not being
used, greatly reducing excess reverberation and feedback problems.
When a new talker starts, the FP-410 immediately selects and
silently activates the most appropriate microphone. “IntelliMix”
electronic processing enables the FP-410 to provide clear, natural
voice pickup. The FP-410 significantly reduces the problems of
“boomy” or “muddy” sound, insufficient sound level (because of
feedback or “howling”), and operator errors. In fact, errors are virtually eliminated because the FP-410 doesn’t need an operator or
technician for continual adjustment—once set up, it is completely
self-sufficient.
“IntelliMix”—How it Works
AUDIO
A portable automatic mixer, the FP-410 is equipped with
Shure’s patented “IntelliMix” to deliver flawless automatic
microphone mixing. The remarkable operating concept
behind the FP-410, “Intellimix” combines three unique
functions: Noise-Adaptive Threshold, MaxBus and Last Mic Lock-On, to provide greater gain before feedback, reduce
pickup of ambient noise and eliminate comb filtering effects. Ideal for video production, broadcast, conference recording
and field production, the FP-410 is also useful for convention facilities, hotels and sound installations.

AUDIO
Audio Mixers
Mackie audio mixers are considered by many to be the
state-of-the-art in small to medium mixing board technology. Mackie revolutionized the compact mixer market
by applying features and audio quality previously
reserved for high-end, large format mixers. From the
smallest to the largest of their models, Mackie puts their
best effort into every phase of board design.
Now in their third generation of development, has
raised the bar once again with the redesign of their
already high headroom, low noise mic preamps. The result of two years of R&D, the
XDR (Extended Dynamic Range) mic preamps offer over 130dB of headroom, exceeding the performance of outboard
preamps costing $1000 to $2000 per channel. Project studios, video suites, multimedia authors, live venues, broadcast
facilities and houses of worship seeking uncompromising sonic quality and maximum flexibility will find what they are
looking for in Mackie’s VLZ PRO mixer line.
Mackie Technology
Very Low Impedance
■ Very low impedance is achieved by scaling
down resistor values by a factor of three or
four, resulting in a corresponding reduction in thermal noise. This circuit design is
used throughout the Mackie mixer line
wherever possible. By its very nature, low
impedance leads to more immunity from
crosstalk. The use of scaled down resistors
also results in their being equipped with
robust high current power supplies.
XDR Mic Preamps
■ With over 130dB of dynamic range and
extremely flat frequency response, the
XDR mic preamps can handle inputs from
24-bit, 196kHz digital audio workstations
without added coloration.
■ Advanced DC pulse transformer reject RFI
without attenuating frequencies of 15kHz
and above.
■ Ultra-high-speed, large-geometry input
diodes on the front end of the input circuit
completely protect the XDR mic preamps
from the consequences of hot-patching
and direct short circuits in cables carrying
phantom power.
EQ
■ Mackie’s shelving EQ design meets the
needs of modern recording, revealing higher highs and lower lows than ever before.
■ Positioned at 12kHz, the Hi Shelving EQ
is far more musical than the 10kHz found
on most other mixers. A gentle boost at
12kHz adds sheen and presence to instruments and vocals, enhancing the textures
of sounds without contributing to aural
fatigue.
■ Positioned at 80Hz, the Low Shelving EQ
emphasizes the fundamental lows of kick
drums, and other bass instruments while
allowing you to fatten up male vocals and
instruments like guitars.
■ The mid range frequency selection of the
1202/1402-VLZ PRO are placed at
2.5kHz instead of the conventional 1kHz,
harmonics of vocals and instruments are
enhanced without becoming strident or
fatiguing.
■ The Sweepable Mid-Band EQ of the
1604-VLZ PRO adds or subtracts a wide,
natural frequency curve that sweeps from
100Hz to 8kHz allowing specific EQ treatment of a broad range of frequencies.
7-Day Customer Satisfaction Guarantee
Mix Amp Headroom
■ Mackie’s negative gain mix amplifier archi-
tecture sets standard mixing levels at -6dB.
This offers a greater amount of headroom,
allowing up to 4 times as many hot signals
to be summed at the main mix bus without
clipping
Impact Resistance
■ Knobs ride just thousandths of an inch
from the metal surface of a mixer chassis
■ Downward force is transferred from knob
to steel instead of from knob to potentiometer
■ Ultimately, extremely brutal knob impact
is absorbed by broad pressure on a tough
circuit board
■ A newly-developed, ultra-tight lip seal
design provides a continuously-sealed barrier against dust and liquid
■ Co-molded potentiometers don’t use brittle
material at critical mechanical points
■ A braced, horizontal circuit board and
shock-absorbing structure eliminates force
transferred to the circuit board.

LX-20
AUDIO
ADAT Type-II 20-bit Digital Multitrack Recorder
Built with the same 20-bit encoding and expansion capabilities as the rest of the ADAT Type-II line, the LX-20 provides
an exceptional value in professional multitrack tape recorders.
Also featured on the LX-20 is the 9-pin ADAT Sync interface
which allows multiple ADATs to be synced together and the
ADAT fiber optic, multi-channel digital interface that has
become a standard digital interface found across the ADAT line as well as on a wide range of digital mixers and soundcards. The LX-20 makes the concept of an affordable, all digital tape based recording studio a reality.
ADAT Technology
➤ Uses standard S-VHS tapes to provide more than enough band-
width to record 8 tracks of 20-bit digital audio. S-VHS tapes are
inexpensive and made to a higher standard than VHS tapes.
➤ ADATs are ideal mixdown decks for surround and theatrical
736
sound applications that require more than two-channels.
➤ ADAT tapes are formatted with a proprietary time code with sin-
gle sample accuracy (up to 1/48,000th of a second) that is much
more precise than SMPTE Time Code (1/30th of a second).
➤ Because time code is written into the subcode area of the tape
you can synchronize ADATs without giving up a track. Up to 16
ADATs can be synchronized together for a total of 128 tracks—
with single sample (20 microsecond) accuracy.
➤ 20-bit A-D (analog to digital) and D-A (digital to analog) con-
verters achieve a dynamic range up to 120dB — compared to
98dB range using 16-bit converters. The additional 4 bits of
audio data increases the number of amplitude values available for
samples from 65,536 (16-bit) to over a million (1,048,576).
Recording Functions
■ Eight record enable buttons control the
input monitor status.
■ Input monitoring is controlled with the
Auto Input button which automatically
monitors record-enabled tracks. The All
Input button monitors all inputs regardless
of the record-enable status.
■ The Digital input button can be used with
the input monitor buttons to reroute any
incoming channel of digital audio to any
of the 8 ADAT tracks.
■ Pitch control buttons can raise and lower
the pitch of a tape to varying degrees
depending on the current sample rate.
When using the 48kHz sample rate a
+300/-200 cent pitch change is possible.
When using a 44.1kHz sample rate a
±200 cent pitch change is possible
■ Uses crossfading when punching in and
out to make the transition from what’s
recorded on tape to what is being
punched, as smooth as possible. There are
four crossfade times available -11, 21, 32
and 43 ms.
■ Analog and digital input select buttons
determine how analog and digital signals
are routed. When recording from the analog inputs, there are three input modes
available to accommodate the different bus
architectures of mixing consoles.
— When using a 2 bus mixer, mode 1
will route 2 inputs into groups of 4 so
that the same audio goes to tracks 1,
3, 5 and 7 and 2, 4, 6 and 8.
— For 4 bus mixers, mode 2 routes 4
inputs into groups of 2 so input 1
goes to tracks 1 and 5, input two goes
to tracks 2 and 6, input three to
tracks 3 and 7 and input four to
tracks 4 and 8.
—All 8 inputs get routed consecutively
to tracks 1 through 8.
Equipment Leasing Available
Transport Controls
■ Transport controls include rewind, fast for-
ward, stop, play and record. Audible cue
and review at three times normal speed is
achieved by simultaneously pressing the
rewind and play buttons (review) or fast
forward and play buttons (cue).
Inputs and Outputs
■ 8 unbalanced RCA inputs and outputs
■ One ADAT optical lightpipe input and
output carries 8 channels of digital audio
between ADATs and ADAT lightpipe compatible devices such as various digital audio
cards and mixers. This allows you to
bounce audio from one ADAT to another,
mix and edit tracks completely in the digital domain
■ ADAT proprietary 9-pin female sync input
and output allows synchronization and
machine control between multiple ADATs
and optional BRC remote control.
■ 1/4˝ TRS jack for supplied LRC (Little
Remote Control) or punch pedal

8-track Modular Digital Multitrack (MDM) Recorders
■ Time counter shows the current location
The ADAT family of modular digital multitrack (MDM) recorders have revolutionized the
pro audio industry. They have led the way to the introduction of today’s project studio
where they have become an integral part of the recording industry, sophisticated enough to
compete in high-end commercial recording studios. Without sacrificing audio quality, the
ADATs offer artists the creative freedom to craft their music when they are inspired, without the burden of hourly rates and booking studio time. Now in their third generation, the
ADAT Type-II machines feature 20-bit recording and an extensive list of internal editing
capabilities such as Track Copy as well as multiple interfacing and sync options.
of the tape in hours, minutes, seconds,
hundredths of a second or optionally
frames (1/30th of a second).
■ Eight 13-segment meters show either
input levels or the levels already recorded
on tape. Eight red Record indicators
located directly beneath the meters show
a track’s record status while blue indicators show input monitor status.
■ Three blocks on the lower right hand cor-
ner of the display show the active parameter for clock (internal, external, digital)
and sample rate (44.1 or 48 kHz), input

■ Status indicators show the bit depth of
■ An interpolation indicator, shown as an
asterisk at the upper right hand corner of
the time display, warns that error correction is taking place within the LX-20 and
the heads should be cleaned.
There are 5 Locate buttons. Locate buttons 1 through 4 are used for shuttling to specific
points on a tape. Locate button 0 returns the tape to the zero position. Locate buttons used in
conjunction with the Auto Play, Auto Return and Auto Record functions, facilitates a number
of automated transport functions:
■ Auto Return brings the tape back to the
locate 1 position after reaching locate 4.
■ Auto Play sends transport into play mode
when a locate point is reached.
■ Selecting Auto Play and Auto Return
causes the tape to continuously loop
between Locate points 1 and 4.
■ Auto Record can be used in conjunction
with the Auto Play and Auto Return buttons for continuous loop recording.
■ Rehearse mode automatically switches
from tape monitor to input monitor at the
punch in point and back to tape monitor
at the punch out point allowing you to
audition punches before executing them.
■ Auto Record and Locate 2, 3 enables pre-
cise punch in/out of one or more tracks.

can also be saved to tape).
slave ADATs or M20s individually or as a
whole. The offset amounts can be set by
Absolute Time or two locate points.
■ The M20 has two SMPTE chase modes:
Frame-Lock: It locks to incoming time code
while still referenced to its internal timecode.
Lock and Release: It locks to the incoming
time code and ignores its internal time code
reference.
■ In both chase modes the flywheel duration
parameter sets the number of dropped
frames that will be ignored (up to 150).
—In frame-lock mode, the flywheel duration
determines how many frames can drop before
the M20 has to re-chase timecode.
—In Lock and Release, the fly wheel setting
determines how long the M-20 will play in
the absence of timecode before stopping.
Metering

Transport Control
■ Standard transport controls include Play,
Record, Fast Forward, Rewind and Stop
■ Precision rotary shuttle knob advances or
■ Shuttle monitor button mutes the over-
bearing, high pitched squeals associated
with high speed shuttling.
Synchronization
■ Full SMPTE/EBU operation with on-
board time code reader/generator and
support for all frame rates including
29.97 DF/NDF 30, 25 and 24 fps.
■ ABS (Absolute Time) can be synthesized
44.1 or 48 kHz sampling rate
➤ Track Advance and Track Delay from
-200 to 7200 samples in 1 sample steps
can add subtle nuances to a musical
groove or tighten the synchronization of
a sound effect.
➤ 24-bit, 128x over-sampling analog to
digital and digital to analog converters
➤ 1 hr. 48 min. recording time on a single
120 Hi8 tape
➤ 20Hz - 20kHz frequency response and
104dB dynamic range
➤ Fully backward compatible with existing
(non-HR) DTRS multitracks.
➤ Up to 16 DTRS machines can be linked
together with sample accuracy yielding a
total of 128 audio tracks
➤ When syncing multiple DTRS units, it is
sometimes necessary to offset the time
between one or more slaves in relation to
the master deck. All DTRS units have
frame accurate offset capabilities independent of SMPTE time code functions.
➤ The tape formatting process writes sub-
code information such as ABS (Absolute
Time) and ATF (Automatic Track
Finding) data on the non-audio portions
of the Hi-8 tape. Timing information is
embedded in the subcode area of a tape
using helical scanning. This ensures
machine to machine compatibility of
tape with no potential for loss of timing
information due to tape stretching or
fraying.
➤ Exclusive, interleaving write after read
4-head system provides superior drop out
protection and yields significantly more
area read on tape.
■ When time code is on part of a tape and
you want to stripe the rest, an assembly
time code function will read a few seconds of the time code and jam sync the
generator and stripe the rest of the tape.
■ Re-chase time code is achieved by con-
stantly monitoring the internal time code
(or Absolute Time equivalent) and external timecode by slowing down and
speeding up the transport to ensure consistent sync or it can run freely once the
initial sync has been achieved, ignoring
incoming time code. The re-chase window settable to 1 or 2 seconds, determines the amount of drift that is tolerated before re-chasing is necessary.
■ Time code errors of 10 or 30 frames can
be set up to be bypassed and ignored.
■ The park position of a slaved DTRS
machine is the pre-roll time needed for
the machine to lock to timecode. Park
position can be preset or automatically
set to the optimum park position.
■ MTC (MIDI Time Code) support allows
synchronization between the DTRS
machine and a MIDI sequencer or other
compatible device and can be output
when the DTRS is playing, in FF, rewind
or when stopped.
Editing
■ Digital Track Copy function allows assem-
ble or composite editing between machines
or within a single unit. For example, you
can copy tracks 3 and 4 to tracks 5 and 6
within one machine or you can copy
tracks 3 and 4 of one machine to tracks 5
and 6 of another machine.
■ Highly accurate and reliable transport
■ Built-in digital patchbay allows routing
any input to any track digitally. For example input 1 can record to track 2 and input
2 can record to track 1.
■ Offset times between master and slave
units(s) can be set on the fly while
machines are in the play mode, or by
entering a specific offset time.

SMPTE timecode or MIDI Time Code.
The time code ports on the back offer TC
In, Out and Thru. The in is for chasing
time code. The TC Thru port is hardwired to the In port, allowing the time
code to pass through the MX to the next
unit without any delay. The TC Out can
output time code when it is the master, or
it can even provide an offset from incoming time code.

three stationary heads allowing direct off-tape (confidence)
monitoring in realtime. This is useful for tracking master
recordings and live audio capture and is an efficient way of
spot checking tapes during extended duplication runs. The
next two features are unique for any deck. Direct tape insertion/removal eliminates tape doors for easier access to cassettes
while the tape mechanisms can be removed allowing servicing of installed decks with a minimum of fuss. The cascade
recording feature is also taken to the next level by allowing a three minute overlap when recording from one well to
another. The loop through outputs are perfect for large cascading multiple decks for duplicating or serial recording. Also

DAT Recorders
The PCM-R300 is a semi-professional rackmount
DAT machine well suited for the home studio and
desktop video suite. Standard RCA (phono jacks)
and S/PDIF digital I/O (both optical and coaxial)
easily integrate the PCM-R300 into most any
recording environment. Using the same Super Bit
Mapping 20-bit analog to digital converters as

5 Reasons to Choose Sony PDP Series DAT Tapes
■ 4 Direct Drive motor transport ensures a
reliable and extremely stable tape path
■ Independent record level controls for left
and right analog inputs
■ Automatically or manually writes
■ Jog dial/Shuttle wheel - shuttle wheel
allows audible cue and review ±0.5 to ±8
times normal speed (±1 to ±8 times in
Long Play mode), while the jog dial is
used as a data entry device for menu
options and AMS (Automatic Music

Sony's original HD&R Binder Systems
allows for higher densities and better
durability, while the special backcoating
ensures a tape with low error rates, even
after 1000 cycles.
The anti-static resin lid shuts out dust
and other unwelcome particles. Also, the
high-precision heat resistant shell prevents warping due to excessive heat.
■ Erase start-ID and skip-ID function
Ids from the beginning of the tape and
writes consecutive program numbers
■ Specific absolute time locations can be
temporarily stored and recalled using the
Mark and Locate function. Stored locations are lost once a tape is removed or
the deck is turned off.
■ The rehearsal function ensures accurate
positioning of subcodes. Once a general
location for the desired subcode is found
and the rehearsal button is engaged, a 3
second section of tape will repeat 8 times
while the fast forward and rewind buttons allow fine adjustment of the locate
point in 0.3 second steps. Subcodes can
than be written in the usual fashion.
■ Existing start IDs can be accurately repo-
sitioned as much as 2 seconds using the
rehearsal function.
■ XLR balanced and RCA (Phono) unbal-
anced analog I/O for compatibility with
professional and consumer equipment
■ Switchable between XLR balanced
AES/EBU and coaxial S/PDIF Digital I/O
■ 8-pin parallel port is available for custom
wired remote control of transports.
■ Serial remote input for optional
RM-D750 wired remote
■ Includes wireless remote commander
■ 4 heads to allow monitoring off of tape while recording (known as confidence monitoring)
■ Automatic Fade in & Fade out adjustable between 0.5 to 9.5 seconds
■ Key protect function disables certain front panel controls to prevent accidental erasing or
manipulation of a tape.

Professional DAT Recorders
Outstanding sound quality and reliability is why so many audio professionals consider them to be the industry standard for DAT machines.
They accept a +4dB balanced analog input source as well as multiple
digital input sources. They use advanced A-D and D-A converters for
natural sound recording and reproduction with low noise, wide dynamic range and accurate phase characteristics.
Ruggedly constructed, only audio parts with maximum tolerance are used throughout, while improved grounding layout
minimizes RF interference and hum from external equipment. The SV-4100 adds advanced cueing functions and reads
externally generated time code for synchronizing to video decks and machine to machine editing.
FEATURES
SV-4100 Step-Up Features
■ Dual high resolution 20-bit digital-to-
778
analog converters (DACs) process left and
right information separately, giving
enhanced performance stability and lower
noise at the higher frequencies.
■ Shuttling to specific parts of a tape can be
accessed via Start-ID or PNO (Program
Number).
■ The Skip-ID feature allows you to skip
unwanted material on a tape.

Quick Start Functions
■ With 8-Mbits of memory holding five
seconds of audio data, the Quick Start
function provides instant playback making it ideal for broadcast applications.
■ Easily adjust the Quick Start position and
specify it by Absolute Time (ABS), Start
ID or PNO (Program Number). Quick
Start record allows two SV-4100s to be
used for frame-accurate punch-in/punchout and assemble editing.
■ You can adjust the Quick Start position
with 1-frame resolution over a range of
±50 frames. Using the shuttle dial and
Skip key for adjustment, frame number is
preceded by + or - sign. ABS, subcodes
and peak level are displayed to provide a
general guide to positioning.
■ Digital interfaces include XLR-balanced
AES/EBU I/O as well as consumer format IEC 958 with both coaxial (RCA)
and optical I/O connectors.
■ Levels can also be attenuated from +4dBu
to -6dBu in 1dB steps.
■ Using the trim and rehearsal functions,
you can accurately determine points to
write start and skip IDs. These IDs can
be written, rewritten or erased at any
point in the recording and automatically
renumbered.
■ With two SV-4100s connected via the 8-
pin parallel remote terminal, synchronized frame-accurate editing can be performed. Continuity of edit points can be
checked by rehearsal playback. By entering and editing end position in one of the
Locate buttons, you can determine a
punch-out point as well.
■ GPI input allows simple triggering of
Quick-Start Play.
■ Without playing the tape, you can moni-
tor the level of stored data to check your
Quick Start position. This preview capability is handy before actual editing or onair play. Repeated play is also possible,
using about 1.5 seconds of the data to
create a loop.
■ Two switchable (+4dB/-10dB) balanced
XLR outputs for compatibility with professional and consumer line level inputs.
Frame Accurate
Indexing and Editing
Synchronization
■ Recognizes external SMPTE time code
(25, 29.97 and 30 frames per second),

MiniDisc (MD) Technology
The ideal recording format, Sony Minidisc uses Magneto Optical technology, allowing you to
record, edit, erase and even re-record up to 74 minutes of pure digital audio– up to a million
times with virtually no loss in quality– on a disc that fits in your shirt pocket.
Non-Linear Record and Playback
Non-linear recording and playback offers
instant track access like a CD as well as the
ability to automatically locate blank space on
which to record. If a song is erased anywhere
on the disc, that data then becomes free space
on which to record regardless of the track
order.
Shock Resistant Memory (SRM)
Minidisc employs SRM (Shock Resistant
Memory) buffer memory chip to store music
before it is heard. Since the buffer stores at
least 6 seconds of music, you won’t hear any
skipping if the laser is momentarily bumped
out of place. Once the laser recovers it will
begin filling up the buffer again, giving MD
continual sound on the rockiest of roads.
ATRAC Advantage
Adaptive Transform Acoustic Coding
(ATRAC) records only the frequencies that
the human ear is most sensitive to and not
unwanted feedback and chatter that is hidden
by louder but similar sounds. Recording with
ATRAC, results in up to 74 minutes of pure
digital recording on a 2.5 inch disc. ATRAC
does this by dividing the 16 bit 44.1 KHz
digital signal into 52 sub-bands in the frequency domain. The sub-bands in the low
frequencies are finer than the ones in the high
frequency range. A psycho-acoustic transfer
function that takes advantage of the masking
effect and the absolute hearing threshold of
man then removes enough information to
reduce the data stream to 1/5th of the original size (5:1 compression).

Thinking of Buying a Headphone?
An indispensible tool for audio and video professionals, headphones provide a cheap, but excellent reference environment– the standard
against which open-air room listening is judged. Audio reference monitoring is the most important tool producers have for deciding what
changes to make to a track and for insuring consistency throughout a production in which narration, music and background audio may be
recorded at different locations. By design, headphones eliminate the acoustic interaction with a room that can affect the recording of audio
signals, and they reproduce exactly the sound that the audio engineer generated during the final mix-down of a recording or that the cameraman captured during the interview. Of course they offer the ultimate in portability. With a good pair of headphones, your sound will
meet your standards wherever you go.
Excellent Acoustics and Great Value
Headphone Pad Design
Headphones reproduce sound so well because they have less air to
move than do open-air speakers, and because they do it in a tightly
controlled environment. Their sound quality can be five times better
than that of speaker systems selling for the same price, or better yet a
$200 set of headphones can have the same specifications for fidelity
(frequency response, nominal impedance, sensitivity and total harmonic distortion) as room speakers costing $1000. In addition,
headphones are a great value. They are basically small, low-power
speakers, and they don’t contain expensive parts that can heat up and
blow the way big speakers do. Ultra high reliability is also the result
of 30 years of design experience as well as new materials and new
manufacturing techniques.
Another headphone-related ailment is outer-ear fatigue. The outer
ear is an amazingly delicate part of the body, and few headphones
are designed with the long-term listener in mind. Even open-air
foam pads can be annoying and painful when pressed against your
ears for a while. The design of the headphone pads and the level of
comfort they provide should be a deciding factor in your choice.
Headphone ear cups generally come in three designs: “supra-aural”
(the against-the ear or “open” design), “circumaural” (the around the
ear or “closed” design) and inside-the-ear, or Walkman-style. Insidethe -ear headphones can be brutally uncomfortable for extended listening and are certainly a last resort for professional applications.
They also feature some of the worst imaging and specs available.
The Makings of a Good Headphone
Open-air supra-aural headphones don’t block out sound from the
outside world and are a good choice if you need to listen for the
doorbell or the telephone while working. If you don’t want interruptions, buy close-ear, or “sealed”, circumaural headphones—the
type worn by most audio professionals for critical listening applications. Circumaural headphones also prevent audio “leakage”, or the
bleeding of sound into the mic while the headphones feed the listener. Enclosed headphones are ideal for while doing voice-overs for
video work, because they prevent the original audio track from
bleeding into the voice-over. The voice-over takes up a mixer track
whose volume has to be separate from that of the background tracks
captured with the video camera’s mic.
Many headphones, especially consumer ones are poorly engineered
and use the cheap electronic circuitry. Headphones are miniature
speakers and miniature speakers require miniature power amplifiers.
For professional applications, the headphone amp should be a separate part of the amplifier. That’s because headphone amps and speaker amps require completely different specifications for output power,
damping factor, output impedance, slew rate and other variables. If
the amplifier is not optimized for headphones, you will soon suffer
from common problems like inner-ear fatigue and poor sound imaging. Poorly imaged audio will have no feeling of continuity from left
to right, and no sense of depth or space.

K141
Semi-Open Supra-Aural Professional Headphones
K141 ................................................................................................................................................79.00
AUDIO
A proven "workhorse" throughout the recording industry, the K141M serves as the reference standard
for supra-aural (on-the-ear) monitor headphones. A small coupling volume in the ear cup, combined
with an integrated semi-open venting system behind the transducer, gives the K141M a punchy, accurate and crisply defined sound. Delivers high sound pressure levels without distortion. Solidly built to
withstand heavy use, it’s flexible steel cable frame and self-adjusting head-band adapt to virtually any
head shape instantly. 20Hz - 20kHz frequency response.

K240DF
Semi-Open Diffuse Field Circumaural Headphones
The K240DF follows the criteria specified by the Institute of Radio Technology (IRT) for a "diffuse
field" EQ curve that provides headphone listeners with the sound pattern, characteristic of a room with
reflective, non-anechoic surfaces. Each is rigorously tested to assure adherence to the IRT standards for
frequency response, channel separation and sensitivity. Hand-selected and matched components are used
to maintain close tolerances. The K240DF is a particularly appropriate choice if a producer or engineer
must use headphones when mixing or adding signal processing on material that will be heard later
through loudspeakers. 15Hz - 20kHz frequency response.

K270S
Sealed Dual Transducer Parabolic Headphones
Designed to deliver very high SPLs (Sound Pressure Levels), this dual transducer designed circumaural
headphone is the ideal choice in situations where quality monitoring is required in competition with
high ambient levels—like use by a studio drummer. The K270S achieves undistorted, wide-bandwidth reproduction. The patented Parabolic Transducer Array has two optimized transducers in each
earcup, both in a tuned enclosure to focus sound waves at the entrance to the ear. The result is a dramatically increased perception of spaciousness, extremely accurate response, and no audible distortion at output levels far beyond the capabilities of single transducer designed headphones. A microswitch built into the self-adjusting headband disconnects the audio circuit whenever the headphones
are removed, preventing potentially damaging feedback when “hot” headphones are suddenly exposed
to open mics. 20Hz - 28kHz frequency response.

Why Two Channels?
With two channels, you can have the
advantage of extensive communications
without getting tangled in crosstalk. A
director can cue cameras or talent on one
channel and a lighting or sound crew on
the other. Coaches on offense can call
plays at the same time their defensive
counterparts are reviewing strategy, with
a head coach switching back and forth
between them. When distractions multiply, PortaCom’s low-noise, broadcastquality audio helps keep communications clear. When you add it up,
PortaCom’s probably got more features
for the money than any other two-channel intercom system on the market.
