Comments about Tascam DR-100 MKII Portable Digital Recorder:

I found the DR100-MKII to be a capable little device considering its price point. The mic preamps are fairly quiet and provide very good quality, but they do overload a bit too easily with my Audio-Technica AT-897 shotgun mic. The on-board omni-directional mics performed well but I would prefer a wider sound with a bit more "stereo" spread. Again, I have to mention that for the [$] I paid for mine (after discount), I'm quite pleased with the overall performance of the device. My only other complaint besides the minor overloading issue was the battery life of the lithium ion pack supplied with the unit. Supplying phantom power, the Li-ion pack was drained by 33% after only 45 minutes of use. Fortunately, you can supplement the Li-ion with a pair of alkaline "AA" batteries which should be sufficient record time for most applications.
