Pioneer D-05 DAT Recorder
The Pioneer D-05 is a High Sampling Legato Link Dat-Recorder.
One of the key selling points of the D-05 was it's ability to sample at a frequency of 96 kHz, twice the normal highest rate of 48 kHz..
44.1 kHz sampling was only available from digital sources, not from the analog inpiuts.
Introduction date : 04/1993
Wide Range mode [96 kHz High Sampling)
In addition to Standard Play (SP) and Long Play (LP) modes. Wide Range (WIDE) mode is newly incorporated to allow recording (analog input only) and playback of high frequencies above 40 kHz by operating the signal processor LSI, capstan motor and drum motor at twice the speeds in SP mode. The recording time of WIDE mode is halved, but a continuous wide range recording of 1 hour is still possible using a 120-minute tape.
Legato Link Conversion
Legato Link Conversion provided with Standard Play (SP) and Long Play (LP) modes allows to reproduce signals beyond the conventional limit of their formats. Legato Link Conversion reproduces music with closer quality to the original sound by assuming the original signal before recording from the recorded signal.
High-speed Al (Artificial Intelligence) search
To reduce the searching time in direct tune selection or program play, the Al search reads the subcodes recorded on tape to learn the tune numbers and tune start positions and searches tunes using these data at a maximum of 300 times the conventional searching speed.
SCMS (Serial Copy Management System)
SCMS allows digital copying of digital signal from copyrighted original digital sources. The digital signal can be copied only once, and further digital copying from the copied tape is not possible.
Long Play mode
Long Play (LP) mode allows to record program sources input in the form of analog signals for twice the period possible in Standard Play (SP) mode (up to 4 hours). Even program sources input in the form of digital signals can be recorded in LP mode provided that their sampling frequency is 32 kHz.
Subcode application functions
Subcodes including various types of time information, start-IDs for indicating the start of tunes, skip-IDs useful for cutting out unwanted sections, tune number data and end mark for indicating the end of programs can be recorded and erased freely. Moreover, you can record TOC (Table Of Contents) data for tape editing and library organization, and Al search is performed also using this TOC data.
Character Pack function
This unit incorporates the function for recording and reproducing (displaying) the character data as defined by the DAT format. This function allows an additional recording of a pack of character data in up to 60 characters including the tune name, performer name and memo at the beginning (on the start-ID) of each tune. When this unit reads the character data at the time of playing the tape, it automatically displays the data on the counter display (by scrolling from the right to the left). The read data is stored in the
microcomputer so that it can be displayed again by pressing a button.
Start-ID recording synchronized with Q codes
During recording of digital signal input from a Compact Disc, this unit reads the Q codes recorded on the CD so that start-ID can be recorded precisely even when there is no blank before the tune. As this function is designed to be activated automatically when the microcomputer judges that the program source component is a CD player, no special operation is required to use it.
Last Memory Function
The condition of the ON/OFF selection for AUTO ID and the adjustment of input selector button (INPUT) before switching the power OFF remains memorized even after the current had been interrupted.
High sound quality circuit
High sound quality is achieved with the pulse-flow 1-bit D/A converter, 1-bit wide range linear A/D converter and the clean clock circuit which reduces the swinging of clock signal in the time-axis direction.
Thorough anti-resonance design
In pursuit of the concept of non-vibration, non-resonance design, the chassis uses a highly rigid honeycomb chassis. The drive mechanism is located on the center to minimize vibrations and resonance with improved weight balance. The tape is held with a unique cassette stabilizer to prevent sound degradation due to vibration and resonance and for pure sound reproduction.
