TASCAM is presenting its new UH-7000 USB Mic Pre to the broadcast market for the first time at the 2014 NAB Show. The 4×4-channel audio interface is a standalone microphone preamp that features the company’s HDIA (High Definition Instrumentation Architecture), an entirely new design for microphone preamps, which ensures clean sound reproduction with a high resolution.
The UH-7000 is ideal for a recording or live setup, and can be also be used for home recording with a computer. With a fully-balanced signal path from input to output (in standalone mic pre mode) and enhanced instrumentation amplifier architecture, the UH-7000 includes new premium components to achieve a -128 dBU noise floor, 117 dB signal-to-noise ratio and 0.0009 percent THD rating. Additionally, dual-sided PCM4220 A/D converters capture mic or line inputs at up to 192kHz/24-bit resolution. For monitoring and line output, the UH-7000 coerces audio through a Burr Brown DA converter for fluid and honest sound reproduction.
Another crucial component of the UH-7000 is its audiophile-designed +48V phantom power supply and extra-large power transformer. Additionally, the mic pre/interface has a solid aluminum structure; meticulously calibrated knobs for smooth, custom-tapered gain setting and bright 20-segment LED peak meters to accurately convey each channel’s true level. The device is also equipped with two XLR balanced inputs and outputs, two balanced 1/4-inch inputs and an AES/EBU digital out.
