The AC cord which plugs into the wall wart fits in very loosely, and as a result falls (not pulls!) out very easily. Needless to say, this can be a disaster if you happen to disturb it when using the recorder.

Might exchange it if a bit of electric tape around the AC connector doesn't tighten things up. Normally for something like this I wouldn't bother, but this is one very pricy adapter.

Note that this is the "official" AC adapter for many Tascam products, so this is disappointing. There's no excuse for this type of defect on such a simple unit. Maybe I should have gone elsewhere and bought a 3rd party adapter, I'm sure that route would have been much cheaper too.

Other than that, it does what it's supposed to do (after all, it's just an AC adapter).

              I purchased this adapter for my DP-008EX after a few months of use with batteries only. I found that the DP-008EX uses 4 AA batteries roughly every 5 hours of use. The PS-P520 powers this unit properly when I'm in my studio, so now I can save the batteries for when I'm recording in a rugged northwoods wilderness, dressed in well worn denims and flannels, and seated on a fallen timber after a breakfast of made-from scratch pancakes, salted pork, and pipe-weed.

                  I have the DP008EX and needed a supply for it. The supply does what it is supposed to do, they're just really overpriced in my opinion, but compared to buying batteries for use in the home studio I guess it will eventually pay for itself.

                    This adpator was purchased for the Tascam DP-008EX. Any "compatible" power supply is inferior and may damage your equioment. I recommend using the manufacturers power supply. I think this should come with the product and not sold separately.
