Nagra Seven Digital Recorder and Classic DAC

Pictured here is the tiny, almost pocket-sized digital recorder from NAGRA, the Seven 2 channel Digital Recorder, which lists for $4999 in the US. The Seven can record PCM files up to 192 kHz and has been designed as the successor to the Nagra LB, ARES-C, ARES-BB+ and Nagra V recorders. It has one digital input and two analog inputs equipped with traditional Nagra microphone preamplifiers which include phantom +48V microphones for condenser mics.

Also on hand is Nagra's new Classic DAC, based on the company's HD DAC design. The Classic will process PCM up to 384 kHz and double DSD. Inputs on back include SPDIF, AES/EBU, optical, USB, and I2S. Both balanced and unbalanced outputs are included, but unlike the HD DAC does not include volume control or headphone jack. Slated for release in April at $14,995.
