Weird Digital Artifact - How to Remove?

I have some wav files recorded with a TASCAM DR-1 that display a weird-looking distortion artifact. The result sounds like digital clipping. Can anyone tell me what this sort of "clip" is called? More importantly, what software will find and repair them? BF Clip Remover doesn't do anything.

Izotope RX "declipper" fixes these. I'm not sure if another program would do it better, retaining higher sound quality.

ReNOVAtor could do the job very nicely... But then we're talking about an €2500 programme...

I use Izotope RX quite a bit, and like it a lot. The only other noise reduction suite I've used extensively is the Waves X-Noise series which is also really good. I find the Izotope plugins to be very comparable to the Waves, for lots less money. Plus, the Izotope RX suite comes with a spectral repair plugin/app that is the best I've used. Great for taking click bleed out, or other weird anomalies.
