24bit/96kHz linear PCM + I.A.R.C. (Isolated Adaptive Recording Circuit)
Experience precise audio reproduction and clarity with a wider dynamic range when using the higher bit and sample rates that the R-09HR offers. The R-09HR supports up to 24bit/96kHz linear PCM recording, which has over twice the digital audio resolution of a standard audio CD. I.A.R.C. is a newly-developed, dedicated analog circuit optimized for recording with the R-09HR's onboard A/D converter. Electrolytic capacitors provide stable, reliable power with an independent power source for the analog circuitry, and another power source for the digital circuit board, thus eliminating DC interference between components in the R-09HR. The I.A.R.C. also contributes to high-quality, low noise MP3 recording with the R-09HR.

Professional-Grade, High-Sensitivity Stereo Condenser Microphone Built In
When recording with the R-09HR, there's no extra gear to buy or cables to connect. A professional quality stereo microphone is built right into the unit, complete with a dedicated analog input control, mono/stereo selector, low-cut filter, limiter/AGC (Auto Gain Control), and a gain boost. The onboard electret condenser microphone elements are very compact, ultra-sensitive, and placed to capture three-dimensional sound naturally and accurately. To further avoid possible noise interference from internal components, the microphone housing is separated from the main circuit board…another sign of quality design from EDIROL (for use with an external microphone, the R-09HR offers a 1/8" stereo mic input).

Compact, Hand-Held Body for Convenient Portable Use
Small enough to fit in a shirt pocket, the R-09HR has a new tactile feel that is easy to grip. It also has a user-friendly graphic display for ultra-easy operation. The large 1.5" OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display provides wide view-ability, at-a-glance level meters, peak indicators, and additional recording information on the screen.

Preview Monitor (small speaker) Built In
Without headphones, you can easily check out the recorded sounds right after the recording, thanks to the preview monitor on the rear panel.

Wireless Remote Controller Included
With the included wireless remote controller, transport functions such as recording start/playback start, fast forward, rewind, volume control and input level control can be accessed from a distance away. This allows the R-09HR to be placed in exactly the right position for recording, and allows for quick and easy touch-less operation.

High-Speed File Transfer via USB 2.0
The R-09 can connect to the outside world via USB for importing/exporting audio files to a computer very quickly. The R-09HR supports Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0) mass storage, so file transfers are very quick and convenient. The R-09HR comes with Cakewalk by Roland's "pyro Audio Creator LE" CD-ROM. This software is perfect for .WAV/MP3 audio file editing; to trim, cut or fade audio sections, burn audio collections to CD, publish a web page with sounds, publish a blog with audio, to podcast an interview or performance, and more. With "pyro," the R-09HR package truly becomes a complete recording solution suite, from recording to CD-burning.

Optional Accessories
Perfect for many recording applications — from rehearsals, recitals, concerts, interviews, podcasts, research, photo journaling, law enforcement, to nature and field recording, and business meetings, the R-09HR optional accessories are useful to pros and novices alike.
