Great Handheld Recorder

On the Hill, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: It fits nicely into my suit pocket and I tuck the windscreen next to it for quick use. This unit beats carrying around a recorder with a shoulder strap and a separate microphone. The directional mics sound terrific.
  • Pros: Swappable Batteries
  • Cons: Soft Playback Speaker

Unreliable product, poor repairing

  • Excerpt: Bought this device last year and used only twice in the 10 months period. The device stopped powering on three months ago. I sent it back to Tascam for repair at my own cost, and they asked me for 90 dollars for the labour cost despite the fact that it is still within the warranty period. I paid, wanting to have the device for an audition coming up soon. When I got the device back from the repair center, it is still not fixed!! It is still unable to power on!!
  • Pros: Good recording quality
  • Cons: Poor Repair Service, Unreliable product

  • Excerpt: does a good job. 2 problems I have: 1. rechargeable batter life is poor. About 4 hours on full charge. 2. the XLR mic level knobs are on the side and they are not the easiest to adjust on the fly.

Great field recorder

  • Excerpt: This is a solid field recorder. It is not intuitive but once you get the hang of it, it is a great value. It is a bit bigger than I would like for carrying around but for the price and quality it really is the best.

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

JAM, B&H Photo
2 January 2015
  • 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

Steve, B&H Photo
12 December 2014
  • 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

Aaron E, B&H Photo
5 December 2014
  • 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
