    I use this product to always make sure my DR-100 Tascam digital recorder has power. The recorder has the nice feature of the rechargeable battery and AA battery slot, but with the PSP520 AC power adapter I always have power to record long performances. The adapter is small and easy to carry and store with my recorder. I recommend this product for anyone who buys a digital recorder, even if you use it for an hour a day.

      Comments about Tascam PSP520 AC Power Adapter:

      I bought this for my Tascam CD-BT2 as does not come with one, that and to replace the cheap knock off ac adapter I previously bought for this unit.

      In my attempt to save a few bucks purchasing the knock off, all I ended up with was a short cord and lot of buzz & hum. It drove me nuts!

      Lesson learned, the real deal is the only way to go! Twice the cord length & no buzz or hum from the PSP520. This adapter makes all the differnce in the world sound wise & allows for better ergonomics not having to be in a cramped setup 3' from an AC outlet.

      Spend a couple bucks more, save yourself all the frustration & get the real deal!

      I purchased the Tascam DR-100 several years ago but never had power adapter. I should have bought this a long time ago & saved myself some headaches.

                      The PSP520 AC adapter works great on a Tascam DR-100. Batteries on the recorder are pretty durable, but it was great to have AC. Didn't need phantom power this time, but it would have been there if needed. This little product (AC adapter) gave us some security. And all thanks to the timely delivery of a [$]item, ordered on a Friday afternoon. Kudos to B&H.

                                it should be coming with the recorder which eats batteries for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

                                  What's nice about it is the fact that it can charge the battery and also ac-power the unit whether a battery is in it or not.

                                    I bought the PSP520 for use with my Tascam DP-008 PocketStudio. It didn't take long to realize that PocketStudio goes through batteries at an alarmingly fast rate. The PSP520 easily pays for itself and you can still opt to use the battery power whenever the need arises.

                                        Excellent ac adapter for my dc-08 recorder. Does not heat up like most ac adapters. Don't take the risk of buying a generic ac adapter and getting a low quality product for your original and expensive tascam.

                                            This is an essential accessory for the Tascam DR-100MkII recorder. It charges the Li-ion battery of the recorder while it's running as well as when it's off. It's only negative is one that Tascam states as a possibility in the user's manual: it can (and does) produce a slight hum in recordings made with mics--both built in and external. I even tried reversing the power plug, but still got hum. Solution: use batteries instead of A/C when you want noise free recordings with mics.

                                                I bought this with a DR100 MKII, because I couldn't figure out how else to recharge the battery. This is a perfectly good cord, but it turns out that you can charge a DR100 MKII through USB. You cannot, however, use the USB while recording, so this is the only way to RUN a DR100 MKII off external power.

                                                Other than that, it's great. Using it hasn't added any hum, as far as I can tell, and it works well.

                                                  This power adapter is so useful they should include it with purchase of the DR100.

                                                  You can charge the DR100 via the USB port, but you can't use it while you're charging - it thinks it's connected to a computer.

                                                  With the PSP520, though, you can record all day without worrying about the battery.

                                                  The only problem, and this is probably my fault, is on the first PSP520 I owned, I didn't store it in a well-protected case, so the part where the wire comes out of the power brick got damaged, and eventually failed. Now I keep it in a plastic container to prevent that.

                                                          This adapter makes recording stress free and saves money! I don't have to worry about the batteries dying while recording with my Tascam 8-track recorder and loosing all my data and I don't have to buy a ton of batteries. It also has lots of chord so that I have enough slack. I am dissapointed that this adaptor did not come with my recorder though.
