Value For Money : Correct Audience: Anyone
Good HD recorder with ext mic options [2 x xlr, with optional phantom +48v power], or internal onboard 2 x unidirectional, or 2 x omnidirectional mics. Rec choice from selector switch on body. Line out minjack, line in minijack, + headphones minijack. Mic/line in volume dial. Headphone out volume dial. Easy use without drilling menus.
USB for pc/mac connection and file transfer [2-way]. Very capable playback device of up to 24bit 96khz wave files. Rec from 24 bit wave to low bitrate mp3 set in menu. Autolimit function to avoid nasty clipping.
Internal memory RAM, and MicroSD card [any size] allow for days of continuous recording. Various basic locator/tab functions. Data wheel to navigate screen menu. Backlight screen.
Uses internal rechargable battery and 4xAA batteries as a second pack which can take over mid recording if needed. Well done Tascam.
I use it as both a rec and a playback device. Spot on audio quality. Tascam convertors and solid-state recording.
Feels solid, heavier than the zoom H4N4, made from aluminium not plastic, hope to be using this device for the next decade....
