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.

  • 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 field recorder

  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Versatile
  • Cons: Mic Preamps Are Limited, Noisy

Great Value - Bang for the Buck!

  • Excerpt: Great all around recorder/mixer combination with nice features. Great for TV, Indie Film, Live event coverage of bands and anything else. requiring more than two or 4 channels of recording. My only with would be for a different portable power supply built in in place of using AA batteries.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Versatile
  • Cons: Poor Battery Life

Best Field Recorder Under $1000

ABBloch, B&H Photo
13 November 2013
  • Excerpt: In the sub-thousand-dollar range, the DR-680 is without question the best field recorder on the market. While it lacks some features that more expensive units routinely offer, it delivers where it counts. Preamps are quiet, sound quality is excellent, and the OS is easy to navigate.
  • Pros: 6 Balanced Inputs, Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Light weight, Low Distortion, Powerful, Switchable Phantom Power, Versatile
  • Cons: Lacks Time Code Support, Weak File Naming Options
