Another Quality Product By Tascam
I just received an email from Ted Hunter on a Monday that he received my order and payment and received my new Tascam CD-RW900MKII recorder the very next day at my work before my lunch hour! Now that's service! Thanks for that Ted. Greatly appreciated and thanks for the candy with my order.
Now to the product. I have only had it a week or so but I have put it to the test and made me a 4 track EP that I recorded from a Zoom R8 digital recorder and it is working as it should. I also like the fact that you can write your own title to your own CD plus write the song titles down for each track via the text option in the menu. I tried it in my Kenwood CD player in my car when I got it done and sure enough the name of the songs appeared after each track number as the song played. I'm 46 but I thought that was really neat to be able to do that. I also found that using the record mute function after you fade the song out, helps it to figure out when one track ends and the next one starts. I have only tried audio recordable CD-R Maxell CD's so far. That is what I have stocked up so I haven't tried a CD-RW re-writable CD yet.
I still have a Tascam 4 track cassette recorder that I have had since 1998 and it still works and I still use it but the Maxell XLII cassette tapes that I like are getting harder and harder to find. It has been a great recorder and has never broke down on me so I wanted to say that my experience with Tascam has been all good so far. I just thought I better upgrade to a digital recorder in case cassettes become obsolete and they will eventually some day just like 8-Track tapes. Hopefully, CD's won't in my lifetime.
The CD-RW 900MKII, to my ears, has very good quality sound and several recording options on the back. I have only used the analog in option so far. I kinda miss it not having the second CD deck like my old RCA recorder but that is less to go wrong and I feel that the Tascam is a better quality, more professional recorder than my old one.
Sorry for rambling on. Can't thank you enough, Ted, and I will be making more purchases from Sweetwater in the future rather than from any other company. You guys have treated me good and I won't forget it. Try a Tascam CD-RW900MKII. If you are still into the CD era, like me, I don't think that you will be disappointed. Sweetwater ROCKS. I may send Ted a copy of my 4 track EP, so look out TED!
