The DR-680MKII has HDDA mic preamps - designed by Tascam with carefully selected components. Each HDDA mic preamp is built with a differential amplification circuit that employs discrete architecture, and made with parts selected for their audio quality. These preamps also provide +48V phantom power. <br/><br/><span style='font-weight:bold;'>8-channels recording at 96kHz/24-bit or 2 tracks at 192kHz/24-bit</span><br/>In addition to WAV format, this unit also records in BWF format - which stores the recording start times in the metadata.
