"Great Product"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've been using the Tascam US-16X08 for about a week now and I'm completely satisfied with the operation. It's a great little unit for the money. I would however advise that when you go to download the drivers and firmware that you take the extra time to download the "Reference Manual" as well. The owners manual has very little information. Overall, it's perfect.
