HHB establishes a new CD recording standard with its latest generation HHB CDR-882 DualBurn CD recorder.

Compatible with CD-R and CD-RW media of all speed ratings, recordings made on HHB’s own reference quality CDR74 Gold media exhibit an average Block Error Rate as low as 0.09. The increase in recording accuracy is directly attributable to new drives and associated firmware now employed in CDR-882 production. Meanwhile, the long-term integrity of recordings made on HHB CDR74 Gold discs is improved through the use of a new protective coating which significantly increases resistance to scratching.

"CD remains a widely-used format in broadcast, music recording, and archiving so recording accuracy and data integrity continue to be important issues," comments HHB product manager, Dawn Birr. "By recording on HHB CDR74 Gold discs with the HHB CDR-882 DualBurn CD recorder, discerning users can be assured that they are recording at the highest possible standards of audio quality, data integrity, and archival security."

Full 24-bit A/D and D/A converters with dither onto CD, combine with a high-quality quartz crystal-derived internal clock and audiophile-grade analogue circuitry to deliver superior sonic performance. The CDR-882 weighs in at 14.7lbs. Unlike adapted consumer devices, the CDR-882 uses all-new high-quality IDE CD-R drives mounted in a massive steel 2U rack-mounting chassis to ensure reliable, glitch-free recording, even in unfavorable environments such as live concerts.

With genuine dual record drive configuration, the CDR-882 resolves the
inherent limitations of previous generation CD recorders by supporting
seamless extended recording time across two or more discs, as well as
simultaneous recording of two discs, high-speed duplication and intelligent
disc management.

The CDR74 Gold is part of the HHB Professional Recording Media range. Designed and tested specifically for professional applications, the range includes CD-R, DVD-R, DVD-RAM, MD, DTRS, ADAT and DAT formats.

Founded in 1976, HHB Communications is Europe’s leading supplier of
