            I bought this kit to use with the Tascam GT-R1. Works like a charm and holds the unit securely, even when tilted. I like the included mic stand adapter. I haven't used the included table top tripod, as I already have one. A little pricey, considering all I needed was the plastic cradle and the mic stand adapter. Overall, I'm satisfied.

              Everything in the package works just fine. I do like the mounting bracket that clips onto the recorder that attaches to the tripod. It makes it easier to hold when you are out in the field. The windscreen is effective but rather ugly looking. It was not the same one that appeared in the photo of items in the kit. Everything works just fine, but IMO it's expensive for what you get.

              I would like to have an AC charger included in the kit. The tripod is compact yet sturdy.

              I can't see anyother way a using a stand or tripod with out the kid.

                Works great but a little high-priced for what it is.

                Comments about Tascam AK-DR1 Accessory Kit for DR-1 Recorder:

                You could use the DR-1 without any stand whatsoever and just place it on some surface, but wouldn't you rather try to isolate it from potential vibrations, and get it closer to ear level? And the windscreen is essential if you're recording outside and there's as little as a slight breeze. The kit works really well, and does much to expand the usability of the DR-1, I just wish I didn't have to fork over $40+ for it.

                Also, I wish there was some way to mount it to a tripod shoe! This would make gathering audio for video simple with a one man crew.

                  This kit is a must have for the DR-1. You can use it to mount the DR-1 to a mic stand or camera tripod. Very handy for recording live performances. I highly recommend this accessory!!
