Fantastic!

  • Excerpt: This recorder is being used for a podcast. Most of the interviews are done over the phone and we needed a way to send "mix-minus" to the callers. Having the extra line-out on this recorder does exactly that! Our host can listen to the entire conversation on headphones and the caller gets to hear the host, it's perfect.
  • Pros: Great Features, Great price, Great quality

Great Features

  • Excerpt: I'll be using this product to record double system sound for films. Very nice unit with many of the features I will use: high dart rate files, XLR inputs, AC power available. My only negative is that the owners manual is not very clear in some areas, but I was able to figure it all out and I am very happy with my DR-100mkII.
  • Pros: Pro features, Very flexible

Solid Broadcast-Quality Recorder

  • Excerpt: Overall, good recorder, with a rechargeable LI battery--which is a huge plus. But, sometimes all the features, buttons, and settings can get in the way in "run-and-gun" type situations. Also, very sensitive to popping-P's, even with windscreens, etc.
  • Pros: Extra Features, Rechargeable Battery
  • Cons: can be complicated to use

Amazing Professional Quality

  • Excerpt: While I'm not a complete audio gear expert, I do have very good hearing and I can tell that recording microphones through analog XLR (such as through this recorder) instead of digital USB results in a clearer and warmer sound. Maybe it's because the DR-100mkII is so sensitive and provides a very clean mic gain. With so many features, it's very worth the price. So far, best audio device I ever bought.
  • Pros: Clean And Warm Xlr Sound, Good Durable Build, High Quality, Simple and easy to use

Great device for a Classical Musician

  • Excerpt: I chose this device over an Olympus and Sony based on suggestions and reviews. My goal was to have a quality recorded to review my practice and rehearsals. Crucial was that it be simple to operate and provide quality sound for music. It is very simple to operate, although the manual does not really give complete instructions if you are intuitive it is easy to use. The sound is good for my purposes.
  • Pros: Ease of Use, Light Weight, Quality sound
  • Cons: poor built in speakers

So far, IT IS THE BEST!

  • Excerpt: I needed this mostly to record my radio shows & live DJ gigs. before this I had the an old bare bones Zoom recorder that I bought when these recorders 1st came on the market. (Lasted a long time until it got closed in a car door). Compared to that, this recorder is the Ritz, or a Bentley. I wanted a recorder that had a digi input because my mixer has a an Coax digi output, & this is the only portable recorder that has it, as far as I know.
  • Pros: 2 Battery Sources, Digital Input, Great build quality
  • Cons: No AC adapter, No Usb Power While Record, Scan Speed Is A Bit Slow

Easy to use and worth the price

  • Excerpt: I was choosing between this and the Zoom h4n. I had it recommended to me by several DoP's I worked with. I especially like that the controls are scroll wheels and not buttons. It's also very sturdy and good for taking into the field.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile
