The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Lightweight Portable Recording Device

The Tascam DR-100MKIII is a durable, yet lightweight portable recording device, ideal for a range of professional audio applications. With the ability to record directly from the uni-directional or alternatively omni-directional stereo microphones, you can choose the perfect recording settings for your needs. The Tascam DR-100MKIII features dual AKM AK4558 converters which sport a VELVET SOUND architecture to provide reduced power consumption with no compromises in terms of high quality audio.

External Microphone Connection

The XLR/TRS connector on the DR-100MKIII gives you access to external microphone and line in connection. The DR-100MKIII features phantom power which provides either 24 or 48 volts for use with external condenser microphones to provide great versatility in terms of recording applications. These XLR inputs themselves are optimised to deliver the lowest noise yet highest quality of all of the Tascam handheld audio recording devices on the market. To sustain the high audio quality, the DR-100MKIII utilises high definition discrete architecture (HDDA) mic preamps.

Dual Battery Structure

The Tascam DR-100MKIII supports prolonged use times, thanks to the dual battery structure. The built-in lithium-ion battery works together with the removable AA batteries to provide sufficient power over much longer recording sessions. If the batteries are running low, the device can be rapidly charged by either an AC adapter or by USB Bus power from an external battery pack.
