HHB MDP500 PROFESSIONAL
PORTABLE MINIDISC RECORDER
BUILT TO LAST
The new HHB PORTADISC™ is a compact,
portable MiniDisc recorder with a heavy duty
MD drive, engineered without compromise
to handle the most demanding audio
acquisition applications.
DESIGNED BY PROFESSIONALS
Like its predecessor, the legendary HHB
PORTADAT™, the new PORTADISC™ has
been developed in conjunction with
experienced audio professionals, resulting in
a recorder that handles exceptionally well on
the move.
MINIDISC – THE PERFECT FORMAT
The PORTADISC™ optimises all the
advantages of the MiniDisc format – high
quality sound, widely available low cost
media and convenient editing. Up to 80
minutes of stereo recording or 160
minutes in mono is possible on MiniDisc
media such as HHB’s MD80.
ALL THE RIGHT FEATURES
The PORTADISC™ is fully-loaded with advanced
location recording features including high
quality XLR mic inputs with switchable limiters,
a 6 second pre-record buffer, one-touch
recording, lockable record level controls, a
memory buffer for glitch-free recording and a
large, illuminated display with a wide viewing
angle. Portable power is supplied by either
AA alkaline or NiMH rechargeable batteries.
CONNECTED TO THE MODERN WORLD
Comprehensive connectivity includes XLR
mic/line inputs, RCA phono line outputs,
coaxial and optical SPDIF digital I/Os and a
headphone jack for monitoring (an internal
monitoring speaker is also provided). The
PORTADISC™ is the world’s first
professional audio portable recorder to
feature a USB port for transferring audio
files to and from laptop editors allowing, for
example, finished news pieces to be both
recorded and edited in the field.
