The Tascam SERIES 8p Dyna features superb specifications, connectivity and outstanding microphone preamp. Housed in a rugged 1U rackmount chassis, it’s a great choice for the studio or on stage. The dual S/MUX optical ports make it a perfect expansion unit for the other Tascam SERIES units. Or other S/MUX-equipped audio interfaces that include ADAT.
Each microphone channel features individually switched +48V phantom power for use with condenser mics. Plus an easy-to-use, single-control analogue compressor with true bypass. A comprehensive display informs about signal levels, compression, overload and the current sampling rate.
Tascam has long been known for transparent, natural, ultra-low-noise preamps. The eight excellent Tascam HDIA (High Definition Instrumentation Architecture) preamplifier circuits in the SERIES 8p Dyna are its best preamps yet: The noise level (EIN) is at –127 dBu, the THD is 0.0007%, the dynamic range is 116 dB, and the crosstalk attenuation is 119 dB. An easy-to-use, single-control analogue compressor with true bypass on each channel handles hot input signals and creates smooth audio input.
Expand Your Interface
Dual S/MUX optical outputs on the rear of the SERIES 8p Dyna enable you to use the unit as a front-end expander for S/MUX-equipped audio interfaces, such as Tascam’s SERIES 102i and 208i, and US-20×20. ADAT is also supported for compatibility with other devices. With two S/MUX outputs, you can send all eight SERIES 8p Dyna channels at up to 96 kHz (four channels at 176.4 kHz or 192 kHz) to expand your system’s capabilities with ease.
Send to Anything
The SERIES 8p Dyna’s eight line-level analogue channel outputs are provided on both 6.3-mm balanced TRS connectors and a balanced 25-pin D-Sub connector. Route signals to interfaces, recording mixers, front-of-house consoles, and pretty much anything else. Connect its D-Sub outputs to a Tascam ML-16D or ML-32D Analogue-to-Dante converter, and it becomes a pristine front end for an audio-over-IP network.
