New US-HR interface line from Tascam.
From SOUND ON SOUND. My favorite production magazine.
Tascam have just announced a new range of USB audio interfaces, which they're touting as being ideal for mobile musicians, podcasters, streamers and home studio owners. Building on the established US series, the newcomers add 'HR' (for 'High Resolution) to the name, and are said to offer significantly better conversion quality, preamps and latency performance than their predecessors.
The smallest is the US-1x2HR, which can record two channels simultaneously. These can come either from the mic XLR and a line/instrument jack on the front, or be switched to a stereo line pair of RCA phono sockets on the rear. On the output side is another pair of unbalanced phonos (intended for a pair of monitors, and with a front-panel volume control), and these are mirrored on a quarter-inch stereo headphone socket (also with its own independent level knob). Two switches on the back provide for direct monitoring (by feeding the analogue inputs directly to the outputs, negating latency), and phantom power, for active DI boxes and capacitor microphones.
