MGR/Michael Sturrock's review"Zoom MRS 1266 HDD/CD"

Zoom MRS-1266 CD
I bought my unit new from the Music Station
in Inverness, I paid £600.00 for it and must admit I was a bit scheptical at first
when you consider that an equivilent Yamaha
unit is closer to 3K, anyway I took it home, read the book and within a few hours I had produced, mixed and recorded to CD a
pretty impressive recording ,I am absolutely delighted with the machine ,its everything and more for my requirements.

its build quality ,ease of use ,recorded sound quality and mostly the price!!!!!

could do with an external monitor facility, but for the price i paid
I can live with an LCD.

Nicely finished, nice colour and solid

I am glad I visited the Music Station that day as I managed to buy the last unit they
had in stock.

MGR/Anonymous's review"Zoom MRS 1266CD"

Zoom MRS-1266 CD
Purchased over the new, new, for 950.00

The features are a great idea.
1) Simple to use.
2) The idea of many multiple effects and REMS
3) In unit CDR

1) Very Poor sound quality in the end product. Final sound is weak, brittle and the reason that people call Digital sterile.

2) Very cheap construction.

3) Power problems.
4) Software is finicky.
5) Input levels lack power. Al,ost need to clip to distortion any signal coming in.
5) Very cheap sounding final cd.

1) Plastic exterior
2) Intenal electronics fai.
3) Eeeeek

1. RUN AWAY from this, if you are spending the price reatilers and Zoom is asking for. very cheap unit. Look at the monthly diving cost of this unit new on ebay. Should be worth 300.00 by years end.

Zoom MRS-1266 CD
I purchased this unit from Music 123. I have been looking for a multi-track recorder for a while and have compaire features from other manufacturers. This unit had more features in the price range being equal. Paid 950.00

The MRS-1266 CD is very easy to use and is laied out in a very logical manor. The manuel is easy to follow and has a great result in the finished product

Cant really say that anything about this recorder that I dont like

The construction of this unit is very well done. It is very solid and all of the controls and buttons are easy to use and dont bind up. The unit is made of quility parts and is not a bunch of plastic that will break after minimal use

I am very satisfied with this unit and as other Zoom equipment that I own works as it should and does what it states it does and not just skims the surface. The 1266 for the price range is the best unit for the money with more features and effects and recording applications that outher units in the price range

GOTCH's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Zoom MRS-1266 CD
6 analog inputs (with 2 XLR's) 2 with ability to enter or low Scratch Live
48v phantom power
MIDI input and output spdif
2 tracks recorded simultaneously with effects
6 recordable tracks simultaneously without adverse


Finish "plastic" -> to hang carefully if you want to keep it long
FX section: the classics; factory patches nice and configurable but lacks the "warmth"
Part Drum machine: bin .... it's a drum machinehttps://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif with bass line.


Sound quality is satisfactory to mock treated.


7 months of use;
the most: - 6 tracks recorded simultaneously (nickel for a sound to combine)
- Transport (carefully !....)
- Price ok without CD (900 € nine on a German site)

the least: - punch in / out not possible in six simultaneous tracks
- Fragile
- It's all in one step € 1000 -> effects and midi sounds not awesome

Personally, I used especially as a mixing desk before throwing on my PC. editing is possible on the machine but less simple than the computer.
It's not pro stuff but it can be a good complement to a PC without a sound card "multi inputs."
