Great recorder

Bill, B&H Photo

Unit works as expected

Dukejam, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This unit is easy to operate and functions as expected, though I had to peak at the manual for some initial guidance. Since I have not had a similar unit to compare it to, I am at a loss for comparison. But the quality seems decent enough and has several options for optimizing the quality.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion

  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Powerful, Versatile
  • Cons: Plainer Language In Manua

Small package big sound

  • Excerpt: I make commercial length films with DSLR cameras. I need big sound without paying lots of money. Using a lav mic or just the Tascam DR 05 by itself creates better sound than any onboard mic can offer.

Great little recorder

Walt, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use the DR-05 for recording my guitar practice sessions. Is very useful for checking timing, accuracy, etc. on playback. My one complaint is the speaker on the recorder basically is useless. Either earplugs or downloads to my computer work so much better.

Nice device

  • Excerpt: This is my first audio recorder that designed to capture more than memos. It captures the high frequencies pretty well. So much so, I think I will have to tone down the treble in post. Just tried recording backyard sounds, like birds and rainfall today.

Great for the price

  • Excerpt: I use this to record pipe organ music and the frequency response from the very low to the very high is excellent for this price range. I highly recommend this unit. It is much more sturdy than the competing Zoom H1.

Studio recorder complexity ~ Cassette deck performance

  • Summary: A tin can with a waxed string whose lack of timbre is obfuscated by its complexity.
