  • 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. <br /><br />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. <br /><br />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...

'' I use it and I love it ''

  • 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.

Can't Go Wrong

  • 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. <br /><br />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.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Great Converters
  • Cons: Awkward menus

not a masterlink

  • Excerpt: after limited experience with the dvra1000hd i<br />would have to say that if you're looking for a<br />true standalone mastering recorder the alesis<br />masterlink is a better option. tascam incorporated<br />limited mastering tools in this machine and the<br />absence of a true peak limiter was a mistake.<br />i have had some luck using their compressor as a<br />limiter. i do like their compressor better than<br />the alesis and their eq is more trasparant.
