Portable time code-enabled audio recorder, two-channel analog and AES digital I/O, CompactFlash card recording. Includes 2000 mAh Li-ion battery, AC power adapter, and XL-1394 power conditioner.

The super-compact 702T records and plays back audio to and from CompactFlash, making field recording simple and fast. It writes and reads uncompressed PCM audio at 16 or 24 bits with sampling rates between 32 kHz and 192 kHz. It also writes and reads data compressed FLAC and audio compressed MP2 and MP3 files. The time code implementation on the 702T extends its usefulness in audio-for-picture applications—from over-the-shoulder to cart-based production.

The 702T implements a no-compromise audio path that includes Sound Devices’ high-resolution, discrete microphone preamplifiers. Designed specifically for high bandwidth, high bit rate digital recording, these preamps set a new standard for frequency response linearity, low distortion performance, and low noise.

With documentary and ENG sound engineers in mind, the 702T is very small, while still being feature-rich. No other recorder on the market matches its size and feature set. In addition, its learning curve is quite short—powerful does not mean complicated. While the 702T is a very capable recorder by itself, it truly excels when used in conjunction with an outboard audio mixer such as Sound Devices’ own 442 or 302.

Sound Devices took advantage of the best in professional and consumer electronics technologies to bring incredible feature depth with ease of use. CompactFlash media is highly reliable, industry standard, and easily obtainable. The removable, rechargeable battery is a standard Sony-compatible Li-ion camcorder cell. The 702T interconnects with Windows and Mac OS computers via FireWire for convenient data transfer and backup.
