From audio-heritage (likely copied from a press release):\ ATRAC is equipped with a newly developed ATRAC-IC with a built-in 24-bit DSP, and processes delicate sound nuances by calculating digital data with higher accuracy. Furthermore, the input / output of data with peripheral circuits is 20 bits, and in combination with block floating arithmetic processing, which has significantly increased processing capacity compared to the past, rich expressive power and minute level signal reproduction are realized. ..

In addition, by renewing the bit allocation optimization algorithm for the input data, the reproducibility of the afterglow, the expansion of the dynamic range, and the improvement of the S / N ratio are realized.

The ALPHA processor is carried. In this circuit, 16-bit data is reproduced with 20-bit quality by interpolating 16-bit digital data so that it approaches an analog waveform that should have existed in nature.

The ΛS.LC (lambda super linear converter) is adopted as a D / A conversion part, and zero cross distortion is eliminated in principle.

The 64 times oversampling enhanced dual bit ΔΣ 20-bit A / D converter is adopted as an A / D conversion part.

The auto REC pause function is carried. By automatically recognizing a blank disc and standing by in a REC pause state, you can immediately start recording after inserting the disc.

The level synchro recording function is carried and the sound-recording starts automatically by detecting the audio signal input from various sources. The detection level can be set in 6 dB increments in the range of -54 dB to -30 dB.

The program move function is carried. When moving multiple tracks, you can move multiple songs you want to move at once by programming in the order you want to move, just like when playing a program.

It is equipped with editing functions such as undo, rehearsal, and AB race.

The memory REC function is carried. You can prevent head breaks by starting recording up to 6 seconds in advance.

A maximum of 148 minutes of monaural long-time recording is possible.

It is equipped with various playback functions such as 25-track program playback.

You can enter katakana characters in addition to uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
