          Comments about Yamaha POCKETRAK C24 Pocket Stereo Recorder:

          This recorder goes a long way being the perfect recorder for many occations. It's small, battery efficient, easy and informal in use and very flexible. It also performs ok regarding audio quality. Limiter and visible peak indicators are very helpful when recording. Direct input level buttons is a huge relief. But I've experienced an alarming problem when used with an external XLR to mini-jack adapter, PELMT100. While audio is coming from the self powered AT897 and is ok while monitoring in PAUSE, the second you hit RECORD there is an very loud noise effectively destroying the recording. This seem to be prevented by making sure the metal sleeve of the minijack plug is not in contact with the chromed plastic that goes around the side of the player. (Pull the plug out a 100th of a millimeter) This could really be a showstopper if not our sound engineer was so obsessed with thorough testing in advance.

            Comments about Yamaha POCKETRAK C24 Pocket Stereo Recorder:

            I bought this to record music as I am playing it, and it works very well for that. It's small and convenient, and the sound is good. The speaker isn't good enough for music playback, but it comes in handy for other things. It's easy to transfer files to my computer. I really love the encluded tuner. There's enough memory that I haven't found it necessary to buy a micro SD card. I am very satisfied.

            Comments about Yamaha POCKETRAK C24 Pocket Stereo Recorder:

            Overall I am very happy with this unit. Battery life is great. Playback options include features usually found only on voice recorders (skip back x seconds, listen at 80% speed with no pitch change). Recording quality is so so - but I bought it more for recording lectures on the fly and reviewing them afterwards.
            The metronome is a nice touch - helps get a beat down when going for a walk.
            Overall - lots of features, pocketable as advertised, and even features a little built in speaker.
