This is one amazing machine.

Does 24 all the way up to 192 AND DSD! Stores to DVD Disc OR Internal HDD.

The converters are fantastic, and the machine is built like a brick shithouse.

Yes, you just go line out into the tascam. It will record to 24/192 and everything in between...DSD option also(which is lovely because this is one of the situations in which DSD is superb.. mastering straight from analog. when used this way(from analog straight to DSD) it is transparent and at its full potential. DSD however loses all potential when you , for example, record first with a DSD recorder or upconvert from redbook or whatever. this is because the HF that is present in the Source will then hit a second delta sigma modulator.)

So.. there is this adage that data isnt backed up unless it is in 3 places.. So... I keep one on my main HDD, one on an external, and two Optical Discs.

I use Mistui and Taiyo Yuden Discs because that is what all the professional mastering houses use.

external/nas of course... stored in a seperate location.

DVD-Rs hold more data of course... soundwise they are all the same.

I've had the original HDD-less DV-RA1000 for over three years now.

The convertors are decent, but no more. What one might expect of a well-executed

pile of elcap-coupled cheap opamps running off a switch mode supply.

I am slowly working on an outboard ADC, but this project has the lowest

priority.

The DVD transport is notoriously unreliable. Only works with yellow Sony

DVD-RWs. I hate dumping money into Sony. They are the ones who once threatened to sue

me over an article I wrote about DSD.

And of lately the disc tray started malfunctioning. After recording perhaps 20 discs in all that

time...

Oh, and I paid a small fortune for it. Including a special tax because

I was a private person attempting to buy a pro (=uninhibited) recorder.

None I am afraid, just a question. What would you use to play back the files it creates?
