Zoom H5 + APH Accessory Pack
The APH-5 is the perfect companion for your Zoom H5 Handy Recorder. Ideal for live concert and rehearsal recording as well as audio for video, the H5 is equally well-suited for podcasting, broadcasting and electronic newsgathering.
Zoom H5 has won the SOS Award for Best Hardware Record.
Flexible Audio for Video Perfection
The flexible and powerful H5 provides everything you need to create multitrack recordings, audio for video, state-of-the-art podcasting, broadcasting and electronic newsgathering.
X/Y recording allows you to cover a wide area yet still capture sound sources in the centre with clarity and definition, making it ideal for all types of live stereo recording. The XYH-5 X/Y microphone capsule included with the H5 provides two matched unidirectional condenser microphones set at a 90-degree angle. The H5’s rubberized housing and shock-mounted microphones minimize vibration and handling noise, while a low-cut filter helps eliminate wind noise and other kinds of low-frequency rumble.
The design of the XYH-5 also allows the H5 to handle louder sounds than any other Handy Recorder model: 140 dB SPL, to be precise, equivalent to the sound of a jet aircraft from less than 200 feet away, enabling you to capture sounds louder, closer, and cleaner than you ever could before. Also, to keep your levels under control, the H5 offers compression and limiting. The H5 utilizes the same high-quality, low-noise preamps as our flagship H6, ensuring great-sounding recordings in all sonic environments.
Pre-Record, Auto-Record and Backup-Record*
The Pre-Record function captures and saves two seconds of audio before you hit RECORD, perfect for unexpected starts.
The Auto-Record function allows the H5 to automatically start and stop recording at predefined sound levels.
The H5’s Backup-Record function automatically records a duplicate set of L/R tracks with 12db less input gain. This audio safety net helps to protect your recordings.
*44.1 and 48 kHz WAV files only.
Inputs and Outputs
The H5’s XLR/TRS combo inputs can handle both mic- and line-level signals for microphones, wireless receivers, mixers, keyboards and more. Each input has a dedicated gain control knob. The supplied XYH-5 capsule also provides an additional mic/line input via a ⅛" mini phone jack.
A Line Out with adjustable volume allows you to send audio from the H5 to the input of a camera or other device without the need for an attenuator cable. In addition, there's a separate headphone output with dedicated volume control. You can use both outputs simultaneously to route audio to your DSLR while monitoring with headphones.
