Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great palm sized field recorder! "
Sound: This recorder is super clear. Feature: It has many setting features as a "big" recorder does. Ease of Use: If you're new to recording there are lots of things to learn. The DR100 MKII comes with an easy to read manual, and has a "quick start" section. My advise is to read the manual front to back a few times and experiment with different settings in different environments, and hear the difference between them. Once you got the basics its pretty intuitive from there. Have fun. Don't give up. Quality: It seems to be built pretty good. Value: Good value for the price and all the settings it has. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had to deal with Tascam on any level concerning any of the recorders I have. Its usually "operator error" on my part. The Wow Factor: I'm impressed with how many bells and whistles this hand held recorder has. Overall: This is the newest addition to the line of Tascam recorders I have. I am brand loyal so that's why I (currently) have three (3) Tascam recorders...DP-24, DP-008 (older model) and now the DR MKII. I needed a recorder to take with me to gather sound effects for songs and videos. I have a mini voice recorder made by Sony (Wal-Mart), but its not good on getting clear sounds. The usually come out distorted. So, a recorder like that is more suited for voice memos or something where high quality audio isn't really needed. The DP-24 is way too big for field recording and the DP-008 is good but I find it too bulky for gathering sound effects. So, the DR100 MKII wins. It has a lot of settings to get the right sound...much like the bigger recorders, but its palm sized. The mics on it are real clear picking up the faintest of sounds. If you want to run some other kind of Mic...just plug it in. The DR100 MKII has phantom power so you can run a condenser if needed/wanted. Overall I really like the DR100 MKII. I have no complaints as of yet. It does what I ask of it...reproduce sounds more clear than my ears.
Style of Music: I'm a musician so I play everything. Some better than others, but it's fun to jam whatever you're feeling.
