      I have nearly thirty years of radio work on a half hour program. I consider myself an amateur after all these years. I conceive the material, outline the process, record on a Zoom R24, mix to Cd and send to the station. I also fill requests for a few listeners to duplicate the program at times.

      I know this field grows too fast for me. So I found a way to work with a great small station owner. Or he found a way to work with me.

      Keeping up with constant modernization (Don't tell anyone, I started live and moved to cassette, back to live sometimes and now CD) it took about 5 minutes to learn differences of operation from my old machine and I was happy to learn the precise start/stop points on the new. That means much to me including fewer mistakes or unwanted sound going into the air.. Then I found, with the multi-track and Cd recorders they had more features that I develop as I go so that I keep getting better without always spending more to get there. Thirty years ago the space to house this studio would have cost more than 500 times my income! The equipment would have been much more if it were available. Today, on low wages with connections and all I need, I get stuff that 99% of hearers can't distinguish from top dollar studios.

      Eat your heart out. Or get your own.

      This is the highest quality I have ever attained.

      With a Zoom 24R, minimum musical ability, a little songwriting and speaking I have found a place to spread the Gospel even though there are periods I can't leave the house from my physical trouble.
      If I can find a way to do this anyone can take a limited amount of funds and use such devices as creatively as he can think.

      Tools like the CDR890 eliminate the excuse, "I could have done it but no one would give me a chance."

      One caveat; If you are as raw a recruit as I was, ask a friend or commercial studio working with sound to let you observe their work for a few hours. Keep out of the way, keep quiet, listen and watch everything they do. You will find the best engineers are proud of their work and like to demonstrate it. They also hate interruptions and despise people that know it all but have no skill.

      You will learn a lot by your ear and eye if you discipline your mouth and time and the manuals will make more sense.

      I am using this product in a church choir reheasal room. It is wired to 1 ceiling mounted external speaker. I purshased it for the ability to use the remote control, saving me from walking back and forth, its superior quality to a cheap ($10) CD/AM/FM/Cassette player, and a quicker start.
      The sound quality greatly improved (much more sound), and the remote helps, but its range doesn't quite allow me to use it from the other side of the room (at the director's stand). Also, it is somewhat slow to load a CD when first put in, which slows down rehearsal whenever I have to change discs.
      Overall, much happier than I was before I got it, since I only have to take three steps to pause/ rewind/ skip instead of the ten before, and the music can actually be heard when everyone is singing.

      Good for the $s

      Comments about Teac CDRW890 CD Recorder:

      For less than $ you can hook this unit up to your stereo and copy all those old cassette tapes and vinyl onto CDs. That said, the drawer transport is pretty flimsy, and the drive is noisy, at least until the disc is loaded. The buttons on the front panel are big and clunky, sort of old school. Would be nice if more of the controls that are on the remote were on the panel, esp. FF and reverse. All of that would cost more $, though. Recording takes a little practice to do all the necessary steps in the right order. All in all, a good deal for the money. Just not as nice as all my other high end stuff.

            Buy this gift for my mother and she said that it is great. The reason I bought this item was because her 5 disc Sony CD recorder had broken, and was unrepairable. She can't says thank you enough!!

                This thing works as described in the operational manual and costs like free toasters at the bank. What else do you want? The ONLY irritating feature it has is an unavoidable pop in the output at the boundary between tracks. This certainly isn't a deal breaker to me but might offend the perfectionist.

                          this was purchased as a stop gap recorder as tapes for recording church services are getting very difficult to find. I was concerned at first that all the deacons would understand what to do to properly operate the recorder to record a church service. I wrote a simple one page direction sheet showing the exact buttons to push and when. They got it! Works teriffic, no problems at all!

                              I use this unit to record my Church Sunday services via our main sound system. The only reason I am giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is that I haven't had it long enough to determine its reliability. I purchased this unit to temporarily replace a broken TASCAM unit that has been sent in for repair. After only four weeks of use, it is serving us well.

The unit would just stop recording in the middle of recording.The tech at TEAC said it was my maxell cd's, so I purchased other cd-r's he recommended and it was a waste of my money.....I sure hope the new one works as I need to record my old vinyl records. I have recorded 300 of my vinly records on a dbl disc sony recorder until it broke. It was a really nice setup.

                                    We use this to record sermons in real time at our church. It is easy to set up and finalize and comes with a good optical cable, which was nice and helpful since we chain two units for backup. Great unit!

                                          we use this to entertain the older ones in assisted living facilities..We want to hear everything we sing so as to put on a good program for them. So recording from ditigital recorder on to the CD is imparative so we can listen to what we sound like. it's so important... love the slid out door, so we can place the cd in a cradlesound is good, the price is right. no real problem but, what we don't like... is having to put the Remote right up next to it to make it work. wish this was better

                                          as a user of cd recorders,where i will use them so much that i actually will wear them out and then have to pay more than there worth....just buy another.this player/recorder is simple to use and any material recorded sounds great.one thing,as a person use to an input level knob,the toggle type level control is something that will throw you off.to fade in any music,you will have to rapidly tap the toggle/rocker type control.other than that,no problems.i would buy another in the future thou.

                                                  It works and records to CD from some rare vinyl that are not easily available on CD. However I have to separate the tracks manually, I cannot make the automatic track system work. I found it difficult to set up. I find it easier to use this than to unload a vinyl directly to my computer and than download from the computer to a CD.
