Here's Tascam's press release...
TASCAM's and HS-2 are the first studio solutions for professional multi-track recording and playback to solid-state media. From studio surround recording to post production and broadcast playback of HS-P82 location recordings, the eight-track HS-8 fits a variety of multitrack roles first pioneered by TASCAM's DA-88 recorders. Like the HS-8, the stereo HS-2 includes SMPTE timecode and RS-422 for use in broadcast and post production. Also true to TASCAM tradition, audio is top-quality throughout with up to 192kHz/24-bit recording formats available.
A mixer is built into the HS-8 for monitoring, and the stereo mix can be recorded live as a separate track. Like the portable HS-P82, the HS-8 and HS-2 use a color touch-screen interface to access settings and tracks. Audio is recorded as Broadcast WAV files to Compact Flash media. A pair of CF card slots is available for data mirroring or continuous recording. The RC-HS20PD remote control allows operation from a separate room over RJ-45 connection.
TASCAM's HS-8 and HS-2 are the ideal solid-state recorders for professionals, with the instant access, ease-of-use and sound quality studio and post studios demand.
