Sony PCM D100 Bundle, with Rycote recorder suspension & Sennheiser HD 25 Headphones
Sony PCM D100 Portable High Resolution Audio Recorder
High performance, high resolution portable audio recording
Sony’s PCM-D100 audio recorder is designed to deliver the highest sound quality in professional audio applications including live music events, theatrical performances, and news gathering. The recorder supports the latest high-resolution codecs and formats, including 192kHz/24bit PCM and DSD.
Compatibility with the DSD format enables the recording of source sounds using digital signals, but in a format that closely resembles analogue waveforms. Compatible with recording and playback in 192 kHz/24-bit linear PCM, the unit can reproduce ultra-high range, delicate music components with excellent audio quality from low to high range. Its broad playback frequency band easily exceeds the audible band of 20 Hz to 25 kHz.
A highly sensitive directional microphone uses a new 15 mm unidirectional mic unit. The mic’s sound collection range adjusts to suit various sounds, from performances with a small number of people to concert halls with a large group of performers. The highly sensitive, broadband recording functionality expresses frequency properties up to 40 kHz, to maximize the advantages of DSD recording.
The PCM-D100 recorder has 32 GB of built-in flash memory and a combination SD Card/Memory Stick slot for expandable storage. The recorder’s lightweight metal aluminium body is built to withstand the demands of professional applications and offers long battery life via four AA batteries (up to approximately 11 hours in DSD (2.8 MHz/1-bit).
The PCM-D100 recorder is part of Sony’s newly announced High-Resolution Audio initiative, a complete series of products designed to help music lovers conveniently access and enjoy the digital music they love in the best playback quality.

Rycote Heavy Duty Handheld Recorder Suspension
A new Lyre-based suspension for portable recorders, the suspension offers excellent isolation from vibrations, shocks and handling noise. Featuring the new 1/4" to 3/8" Swivel Adaptor, the suspension fits any portable recorder with a 1/4" female thread. The suspension can then be mounted on a 3/8" male thread, mic stand or boom pole, or be attached to a camera hot shoe. The 180° swivel allows for easy orientation of the recorder so it can point in the exact direction of the speaker.
The suspension uses the patented "Lyres" to give unequalled isolation & robustness. Unlike rubber or elastic suspensions the Lyre is unaffected by temperature extremes, and so can be used in the harshest of environments.
Sennheiser HD25 Headphones
The DJ Classic. The classic HD 25 comes with its iconical split headband, 1.5m single-sided connection cable and a flip-away earcup for single-sided listening.
