Excerpt: I use the 1000 to record new songs for the duo I perform in and copy them to cd so the other band member can learn the songs at his leisure and come prepared for the next practice. What I like about it the best is the simple, straight forward controls and interface. No complicated menus to dial through. Just wish playback was a little louder.
Excerpt: This is my second BB-1000CD - I bought this one as a back-up to the one I've been using to record CDs for use by my guitar students. We record their lessons and I was worried this fine and easy to use unit would be discontinued! Excellent recording quality with either external mics (room for two) or the four internal mics.

Excerpt: The Tascam bb1000 is great just as it is. I use it to record the group (Gospel) and the sound is just great. The only thing that i have a problem with is trying to connect equipment into the imput.
Excerpt: I just ordered a Tascam BB-1000CD from B&H Photo. It costs [$], but it is the best hardware based player and recorder for language learners. It is a professional boombox with very good recording quality, and can be used for Karaoke-like overdub A+B recording, slower speed replay etc. It works fine for the most part. The main problem is it supports MP3s only at 44khz. If I try to play some 22khz files, I got a Non-Supported file format error message.
Excerpt: I would have given this 5+ stars, if it would burn and finalize CDs faster from the SD Card. Otherwise, this unit is great. I teach voice and do musical direction, so I was looking for a relatively inexpensive device that would allow me to hand my students a recording of their lesson on CD before they left.

Excerpt: Internal amp is not loud enough to use in a concert band setting where you want to play it back for students to critique. It will need to be hooked up to a sound system in order to overcome ambient noise in a larger rehearsal setting.
