Adequate protection

  • Excerpt: This case provides adequate protection for the DR-680 and does so as a price less than the completion. All ports remain accessible. The pouch on top holds the power adapter and USB cable, but nothing else.

Great unit for the money

  • Excerpt: In field recorders there is nothing at this price that compares to this unit. It's technically an 8-track machine but it's best when used as a six track for me, with tracks 7-8 used for stereo mix.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile

Great Audio Recorder

  • Excerpt: I do film, video and audio transfers. I expanded to quadraphonic audio transfers and need a recorder that could do all 4 tracks at one time. This unit far exceeded my expatiation. The quality was great and the unit was easy to use.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Powerful, Versatile

Great field recorder

  • Excerpt: This is a fantastic low budget field recorder. Sounds good (although a little bit noisy), plenty of inputs and outputs, all the functions you want really. Except timecode support, but I don't expect that for the price.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Versatile
  • Cons: Mic Preamps Are Limited, Noisy

  • Excerpt: I've worked with Sound Devices and Zoom recorders and I must say that the Tascam DR-680 is pretty impressive. The preamps are quiet compared to many other field recorders and the button/switch layout makes life on set fairly easy.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Versatile
