Comments about TASCAM PR-10 Linear PCM Recorder:

Bought this the last time it was on sale here. Great deal for the price. Bought this to record my 2 bands for the learning experience, not expecting real hi-fi recording. The internal mics are OK, but recording through a pair of real mics and a mixer is surprisingly good. And it's only going to get better with experience) Batteries good for about 1&1/2 hours before it shuts itself down.

Comments about TASCAM PR-10 Linear PCM Recorder:

I'm replacing this ASAP, as a performing musician I need something to record rehearsals without the many hassles this unit subjects me to.
I purchased this little recorder from MF over a year ago. I'm stuck with it due to finances right now. Several problems with the device I come to hate, are:
There is no provision for any power supply (wall wart) and the unit eats up even the highest quality batteries at an incredible rate, I'm using HQ rechargeable batteries now but its still ridiculous how much battery changing I have to put up with. (1) 1 hour rehearsal is all I get from hot batteries, sometimes not even that.

The unit's menu tree & configuration is very difficult to learn, definately not intuitive.

Frequently the unit refuses to power down after use, necessitating battery removal.

Arbitrary error messages are common such as; "layer too deep"

The speaker is ridiculous and while I understand that the unit's form factor requires a small speaker, the fidelity and output of this one is poorly lacking.

The on-board mics are really terrible requiring me to further spend on a good external stereo mic.

IMO its a total waste of money and I am quite surprised as my past experiences with Tascam have been positive.
seems to be sturdy enough
A waste of hard earned money

piece of junk

By Vortex-xNAQ0

from San Jose,Ca

Comments about TASCAM PR-10 Linear PCM Recorder:

I got this for $69 as a stupid deal of the day, so you'd be a sucker to pay full price (or even the $69). I was impressed at first because it is capable of making pretty decent recordings at home, but I just got back from recording a Motorhead show and I learned two things- 1)I've heard of items without headroom, but this is the first device with an adjustable input volume that I've ever heard of that has no "foot room" - you can't turn it down low enough to record a loud band without distortion. That's right, I turned it all the way down to "0" where it would not go any lower, and my recording still came out completely distorted. Just think that someone studied for years to be an engineer and somehow came up with that idea.2) Recording in 24 bit with a set of new alkaline batteries, they wore out in less than an hour. No, that's not a typo- batteries last 50 minutes in this piece of junk (no, it doesn't have AC power)I always thought Tascam made quality stuff, but they lost a customer for life. It's as if you bought a compact sedan that seems like a normal car at first, then you find it gets 4 mpg. This should not be on the market without a warning to the effect that it costs $4 an hour to use. Thumbs down!!

Cheap and quick recording? RIGHT HERE!

Comments about TASCAM PR-10 Linear PCM Recorder:

Got this PR-10 to record our practices and be able to refer to them later - For that, it's perfect. Gotta spend some money for REAL recording gear....this is NOT that - it's a quick litle tool to record and playback. NOT Pro gear - just a tool to put in your toolkit. Some people seem to have trouble with recording loud volumes - - No problem as for as I'm concerned - I read the book! Yes, it'll eat 2 AAA's in 1-1/2 hour - so buy more batteries.This unit replaces my old cassette recorder - The PR-10 has much improved sound quality over the analog tape recorder, especially once you understand the recording/playback filters, switches and settings contained in the PR-10's menu. Saves the songs as mp3's so I can listen to them on my computer.It's a great little unit for what I bought it for.

Not for live music

Comments about TASCAM PR-10 Linear PCM Recorder:

It is a very nice simple unit that I'm sure works well for lectures, interviews, maybe love-volume acoustic music, but I tried it for band rehearsal and a show, and no matter how I set it, I got tons of distortion.

Maybe with an external mic (via adapter to 3.5mm) it might work, I don't know. But for recording band rehearsal or live music at typical bar-band volumes out of the box, it's not up to task.

I had to rate it lower because, being that this is a site aimed towards musicians, I have to assume a large percentage are thinking of this to record rehearsals or shows.
Features are explained, so you have to judge if it's got what you want/need. For me there are plenty.
Seems well built for it's price.
For keeping beside your chair to record a little diddly you just made up on your acoustic guitar, fine. For anything involving amplified music, at least at any volume, it's not a good value. I had to consider that this will not satisfy many musicians.

Fun - Fun - Fun

Comments about TASCAM PR-10 Linear PCM Recorder:

Hey, it does what it says - easily carried in the pocket - good for everything from choir rehersals to loud rock shows. Not too hard to use - you can produce a near audiophile CD with it with a little practice.
OK - I'm not a very technolocal guy, and at first I was a bit intimidated with the manual and devise, but if you read, experiment and take a little time, it's not too bad. My first loud rock show grabs were total busts - bass range womp-womp-womp - but if you learn a bit about the devise - use the max bass cut - add the voice boost - manually set the mike input levels as low as you can, and move back as far as you can, you can get a decent recording of even a really loud band.

I've never hit the battery limits recording - granted maybe about two hours continous and four hours in an evening is about the most I've ever asked out of it. I'm not sure what the continous playback time would be using a headset - I've done at least 2 or 3 hours on a used battery set, before it's auto shut down, which has only happened for me once. I don't know where all this the batteries only last an hour and a half stuff is coming from, but my experience is quite a bit better than that - maybe if you drive the speaker in the devise, it burns them up faster - I've never used it.
Nice quality across the board.
A good value at list price - super at a discount.

Tascam PR-10

By JD Smith

from Jamestown NY

Comments about TASCAM PR-10 Linear PCM Recorder:

I just received this from Musician's Friend, it was on the Stupid Deal of the day at almost half price. I probably wouldn't have even considered it if hadn't be the deal of the day. I'm sure happy I did. It's an amazing little recorder for it's size and price, very easy to use and the sound quality if very good. I just put it front of my amps and hit record and was quite surprised and the quality of the recording. I put it on the table and recorded a conversation and again was impressed. At the regular price, it's still a good value.
