HHB SHOWS OFF THE ULTIMATE PROFESSIONAL AUDIO CD RECORDER

cdr_882.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT – APRIL 2008: Drawing on its unparalleled expertise in CD-R technology, HHB is showing, what could well be the world’s most advanced professional audio CD recorder, their new CDR-882 DualBurn, at the 2008 NAB Show(tm).

The HHB CDR-882 DualBurn is compatible with all types of CD-R media, both low and high-speed up to 52X, including HHB’s own new CDR80HS 2X-52X disc. With genuine REC-REC drive configuration, the CDR-882 resolves the inherent limitations of previous generation CD recorders by supporting seamless extended recording time across two or more discs, as well as simultaneous recording of two discs, high-speed duplication and intelligent disc management.

The CDR-882 is designed from the ground up for high-end performance in a range of professional music recording and digital media applications. Full 24-bit A/D and D/A converters with noise-shaped dither onto CD combine with a high-quality quartz crystal-derived internal clock and audiophile-grade analogue circuitry to deliver superior sonic performance.

Build quality is similarly uncompromised, with the CDR-882 weighing in at 6.7 kg / 14.7 lbs. Unlike adapted consumer devices, the CDR-882 uses high-quality IDE CD-R drives mounted in a massive steel 2U rack-mounting chassis to ensure reliable, glitch-free recording, even in unfavorable environments such as live concerts.

Comprehensive professional connectivity includes balanced XLR analogue I/O, unbalanced phono analogue I/O, balanced XLR AES/EBU digital I/O, coaxial and optical S/PDIF digital I/O, external word clock input, RS232 remote control and parallel control interface. An on-board sample rate converter accepts digital signals from 32-96kHz, and the CDR-882 ships with an infra-red remote control.

A full complement of professional features equips the CDR-882 for a wide variety of tasks. Track IDs may be manually created, or auto-generated from the digital input, audio level threshold or time period, both of which are user-definable. When recording seamlessly across two or more discs, track IDs are inserted when the next disc starts, and where the user-definable fade out and fade in start and finish. With an overlap between the two discs, the whole program can either be played back uninterrupted in the CDR-882, or easily reconstructed in a DAW using the track IDs to precisely align the audio from the two or more discs.

The CDR-882 supports CD Text, and makes its own use of it to identify multi-disc recordings and the correct order.

The versatility of the CDR-882 is enhanced further by the inclusion of Sync Record and Disc Copy modes, a Program mode to enable selective track record/replay, and Single/Clone modes to select recording to one or both drives.

Commenting on the launch of the CDR-882, HHB Managing Director, Ian Jones, says, “With CD-R continuing to play an important role in all kinds of professional applications, we’ve used our experience in CD-R technology to build the ultimate CD recorder, providing users with advanced record and playback facilities, along with uncompromised sonic performance, high-end build-quality and comprehensive professional connectivity.”

The CDR-882 will be available in April 2008 with an MSRP of $1,149.00.
