The PCM-800 features balanced XLR analog ins and outs, as well as AES/EBU digital ins and out via a D sub connector (included). You can track delay from -4 to +150 ms and the unit provides seamless and gapless punch-ins/outs with variable crossfade (a very useful tool) from 10 to 90 ms. A convenient shuttle knob with 1/4 to 8 times normal speed lets you quickly move to the exact location you're looking for to edit or punch-in. There are two auto-locate buttons on the front panel, as well as a 6% pitch control. There are all sorts of available options that let you sync to just about any timecode formats.
