        Comments about Fostex UR-2 Rack-Mount Stereo Audio Recorder:

        Niche product with some great pluses and some surprising negatives. I really like the recording media, the 1U rack space, ability to export via USB.

        The power supply is external, but not a wall wort. Rather, it's like a laptop's PS. Where do I put the darn thing in my rack????

        The face plate and rack ears are CHEAP. What was Fostex thinking????

        Electronically, the product works as advertised. How robust is it and how long will it last is anyone's guess. It boarders on a prosumer piece of gear, rather than robust pro gear. IMHO, Fostex could have over-engineered it, added $200 to the price tag, and made every pro who does field work extremely happy. As it is, I will probably switch to JoeCo Black Box as soon as it hits the market with AES digital I/Os.
