Excerpt: I did a lot of research on this unit and so far it is what I hoped that it would be. I am a tascam user and from my experience thier products have performed as advertised. I have only had it for almost 2 weeks. I've done a couple of quick mixes and I am very pleased with the results.
Excerpt: I use it to record vinyl. Sound quality is excellent at 24/96. I would like to try 24/192 but am having trouble interfacing with my outboard DAC. The Tascam only outputs the high sampling rates via special 2xAES/EBU connectors and my DAC doesn't support this method. Older reviews of this device mention a free download of a special version of DiskWelder Bronze that will allow conversion of DSD files to PCM but I did not see any offer when I registered the product.
Excerpt: I use Tascam in my recording studio and I just impressed of its quality. It sounds amazing; of course, if your mixdown sounds great. It is really easy to use it if you are familiar with pro audio gear. I really like their dynamics effects and their quality up to 192kHz/24-bit. Built-in hard drive just makes everything easier to use. I just love this unit.
Excerpt: This machine sounds great and has the feel of a serious recording device. The sound reproduction, especially in DSD mode is impressive. The unit feels rock solid. I would've given it product 5 stars if the menus were easier to navigate. Things like naming a file are made tedious with only the Jog wheel. That said, it does have an input for a PC keyboard. Also the remote control, though very useful, is wired and that kinda stinks.
Excerpt: Used to digitally record vinyl from a high end stereo system. Pros -Unit is dead quiet, great dacs to record and play -Reproduction very close original at 96/24 Cons -Navigating multiple menus to complete some actions. -Need to turn off EQ and balance every time the unit is powered up.
Excerpt: after limited experience with the dvra1000hd i would have to say that if you're looking for a true standalone mastering recorder the alesis masterlink is a better option. tascam incorporated limited mastering tools in this machine and the absence of a true peak limiter was a mistake. i have had some luck using their compressor as a limiter. i do like their compressor better than the alesis and their eq is more trasparant.
