The DA-3000 is perfectly designed for stereo PCM/DSD recordings at high sampling frequencies suitable for archival masters. This magnificent unit is capable of recording analog and digital signals up to 192kHz PCM or 5.6MHz DSD. The unit records to both SDHC cards and UDMA supported CF cards.

The variety of inputs and outputs enable connection with all types of studio equipment, including audio interfaces and mic preamps. The analog inputs and outputs include both XLR and RCA jacks. The digital connections include S/PDIF RCA coaxial and XLR jacks to support AES/EBU. The BNC SDIF-3 inputs and outputs support DSD digital connections.

With the goal of making a high-quality audio recorder and ADDA converter easy to use, we designed the front panel with all of the necessary external controls and included long, brightly lit meters and display. The 128x64 OEL display allows you to check necessary information quickly, and the 24-dot level meters allows you to confidently monitor levels at all times.

The internal circuit uses a fully-balanced structure that is completely resistant to noise from the inputs and outputs. This has a great effect on the output and input stage impacting the recorded audio. The input audio is digitalized by the BurrBrown PCM4202 ADC after it passes through the analog input circuit.

Cooling fans inside equipment generate noise and can cause loss of accuracy when monitoring at low volume levels. With the DA-3000, we have achieved high performance in a fanless design, allowing you to maintain a comfortable monitoring environment that is free of fan noise.

DA-3000 Great Product

The DA-3000 is a very high quality tool, I'm using mine to archive my extensive (4000+ lp collection). Having the capability for DSD as well as high bit rate pcm is great. Very easy to set up and use, I am using both the balanced inputs and single-ended rca. I transfer the recordings from the 64 Gb CF card to a SSD with my laptop for editing and then copy to a back up array for permanent storage and onto my server for playback availability.


Do check what firmware your unit is running. Mine needed to be updated to the most recent version available. The latest firmware (V 2.0) does increase the the capacity of SD cards you can use to 256 Gb


My unit arrived in all original packaging and could have passed for new. All accessories were included. Highly recommended! Great service from VMInnovations on delivery time.

Would I recommend this to a friend or family member? Yes
  • Easy to Use
