      I use the CD-RW900SL to record audio (CDs) at conferences. We do video and audio. The controls are intuitive. The CDs is produces are excellent. The display is easy to read. I like the slot load/unload, no drawer to stick out. The only feature I would have liked but did not get with this unit would be a timed option to split tracks automatically. My cell phone has a timer on it so no problem there because there is a manual split track button on the control panel. Also, it does have an adjustable volume based track splitter.

      I've had two of these units (Tascam CD-RW900SL)the past 6 days and neither performed the way they should have straight out of the box. Both units I bought took forever to read the TOC. The first would be very intermittent to play cuts above track 80 from my test discs. The second unit worked well for 10 minutes, but now I get a disc error with any disc I try to load, including brand new "gold" CDs. I'm going to make the 60 mile round trip to GC one more time to try another. If this doesn't work correctly, I'm done.

      Dennis, long time Teac/Tascam owner.

        Comments about Tascam CD-RW900SL - Rack Mount Slot-Loading CD Recorder with MP3 Playback:

        We bought this to replace our old recorder and it works great. The old one took about 2 minutes to finalize the recorded cd(usually about 60~70min long) but this one does it in little less than a minute! Operation is pretty simple too and we had no problem switching to the Tascam.

                      Ordered this assuming the power input compatibility would be universal 120-240VWhen it arrived with only US IEC Power Cable I checked the label on back of unit and was disappointed to find it is 120V only!A stepdown transformer' from nearby electronics store solved it. This doesn't make it ideal for touring/mixed use in other areas (so I'm adapting to have this unit permanently installed)I love the fact that B&H sell and ship to international buyers, as this was far cheaper than buying Australian stock - but should really make clear in the specs on their site if a product is 120V power onlyFirst week of use and it's running fine

                          We were still using cassette tapes to record our morning service for shut-ins. The CD-RW900SL provides the means to change to CD so more folks can listen to the service when they cannot attend in person. We just started to use it and so far so good. It would be nice to have in addition to the instruction manual an instruction DVD with the unit.

                            The CDRW900SL is a fantastic addition to the rack in any project, home, or pro studio. I love the in & output setup on this. It makes it very easy to quickly burn a mix from anything from my digital field recorders, my mini disc deck, to one of my multitracks. The only thing I could have wished for that's not here, would have been the ability to add track ID markers after recording, but before finalizing the disc. Guess I'll still have to use the big gear for that. But for the audio quality & simplicity, this unit is fantastic!

                              This product was purchased for recording live church services. We had a similar TASCAM unit that featured both a cassette and CD Recorder. This equipment was very reasonably priced and has performed well so far for our purposes. It is not complicated to use and has provided quality recordings.

                                      Love the product by and large. The thing is that with a tray I would consider it a bit safer. It has an optical in, a coaxial in, it is really cool.
