Tascam SS-R250N Networkable Solid-State Audio Recorder

The Tascam SS-R250N is a versatile solid-state recorder/player designed for professional applications such as broadcast studios and fixed installations. Offering a range of remote control options, this recorder provides flexibility and convenience in audio recording and playback tasks.

Flexible Recording and Playback Options

The SS-R250N records in WAV and MP3 formats to SD/SDHC/SDXC cards and USB flash memory. With the ability to connect to an FTP server via a network, the recorder can automatically upload recordings upon completion or download files for playback. Time synchronisation via SNTP enhances its functionality.

Dual SD Card Slots for Enhanced Security

Featuring dual SD card slots, the SS-R250N offers added security for your valuable files compared to conventional recorders. Backups can be created on the second memory card during recording, or the recorder seamlessly switches to the second card when the first one reaches full capacity. Additionally, the unit automatically closes files in the event of a sudden power outage during recording to prevent data loss.

Multiple Control Options

Control of the SS-R250N is highly flexible, with options including the RC-SS150 remote control featuring a colour LCD display and 12 keys for convenient playback. Users can also utilise a dedicated app available for iOS and Android devices, offering control over transport operations and various settings. Integration into existing environments is possible using serial or parallel control methods.

Comprehensive Audio Connectivity

For audio connections, the SS-R250N is equipped with both balanced and unbalanced analogue inputs and outputs, as well as SPDIF coaxial and AES/EBU digital I/O with a sample rate converter. An optional Dante interface card provides two-channel input/output for Dante audio networks, expanding its connectivity options.
