Sound: Outsatnding quality at the 24 bit setting to .wav Feature: I mainly have been using this for stereo recordings, for which it sounds awesome. The tuner appears very accurate and the speed function is great for transcribing solos. The FX are clean and accurate, maybe a little noisey. I haven't used the overdub function. Ease of Use: Simple, intuitive user friendly Quality: So far so good. Smart looking and appears durable. Value: Great bang for the buck. Manufacturer Support: Havent used them The Wow Factor: Its sexy Overall: I 'll give it a nine. Theres always room for improvement, but it appears to all be little things to me. Its main function is as a stereo recorder and as that it is Great!

VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: I got this to record through the line in jack, and audio recorded through this jack is great. I was not impressed, though, with the build in mics. They sounded tiny to me and they pic up a lot of handling noise. Feature: Good set of connectors, rechargeable battery. But, it doesn't come with an AC adapter! Ease of Use: Drag and drop files from the DR-1. Navigating the menus is difficult, it took me a long time to figure out, after changing something in the settings, how to get back to the previous screen without completely leaving the settings section (fyi, you press the rewind button...?) Quality: When I opened the box, the first thing I noticed was the cheap, lightweight feel. The buttons feel cheap, the wheel that you use to navigate menus feels cheap, everything feels cheap.

Sound: So far things sound really great, especially in the mid to high range. I have done too much with low frequencies. Feature: I really enjoy the look and size of the machine. It's great. Seems pretty durable. The slow playback option is great!!!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
