Sony Readies PCM-D50 Digital Recorder

Sony is set to release the new PCM-D50 Digital Recorder this weekend. The D50 is a powerful, compact version of Sony’s flagship PCM-D1 Digital Field Recorder, and offers 24 bit / 96 kHz recording, two-position Electret Condenser Stereo Microphones, and PC/MAC file transfer via USB 2.0, at only 1/3rd the cost of its big brother.

The PCM-D50 lets Sony address the entry-level digital recorder market that’s currently being dominated by M-Audio’s MicroTrack II and Zoom’s H4. Considering the feature set, robust build quality, high-res audio, and extremely attractive price, Sony’s D50 means business.
