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).

power adaptor

Comments about Tascam PS-P520 AC Adaptor for MPGT1/CDGT2/DR1:

I didn't think I needed one of these, but it's great. The display is always on (instead of just for a couple of seconds) and I don't have to worry about the recorder failing half way through the session.

      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.

            I bought a TASCAM digital recorder DP-008. It will eat batteries very quickly, this is very much needed if you get the recorder.

                          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 wish this adaptor had an LED light to let me know it was on. Then I'd have given it 5 stars. I bought a generic adaptor first, but it stopped working in one day. This one is sturdy and well-made with a two-pronged plug that is easy to plug in to any outlet. I don't know why this adaptor isn't included when you purchase a Tascam. It should be.

                                  Seems a little pricey, but recommended by Tascam for use with the LR-10. Glad I bought it as it is very well made with a long cord; and did not want to ruin my unit with the wrong adapter. Good for long recording or practice sessions. I still use the batteries for sampling and quick practices.

                                    Less expensive third party devices were advertised on the internet for my Tascam LR-10. But because the LR-10 has an abnormal size power receptacle, I was unsure if one of those would connect.
                                    The Ps-P520 works perfectly although it is a bit "pricy" compared the exceptional deal I got on my LR-10 from Musicians Friend.

                                        I bought this power supply for my TASCAM LR-10 Instrument Trainer to save the battery life in the unit (for when I really need it). It works great. It has nice long cords so I don't have to be too near an outlet. The LR-10 came with a USB cable to use with a computer so you don't really need this power supply. I just like having the options to use my LR-10 away from a comuter.
