    Tascam CD-RW900MKII reviews

    CD-RW900MKII Professional CD Recorder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Use I am using this in a home stereo setup to copy CDs, analog cassettes and LP record albums. The user's manual is mostly helpful, but was lacking in some areas. For instance, the section pertaining to digital vs analog recording levels could have benefitted from an expanded or clearer explanation. Also the section on finalizing/unfinalizing discs can be confusing (CD-R vs CD-RW) for those not experienced with recording/copying discs. But for the most part, the manual made the process of learning to use this unit fairly quick and easy. The product's appearance and design has a professional look and feel.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use I use this device to burn my record collection onto cd for use in my car and to convert to MP3's for iTunes. This machine is very easy to use and is very similar to it's non-professional counterparts. My favorite feature is that you can use any type of blank cd media unlike the non-professional machines. It has many features that I plan on using like the fade-in feature which would be good for records with tracks that are too close to queue properly without getting the end of the previous track. So far I like this machine a lot. My only critism is that there are two separate knobs for input level control. I have to play a record for a bit to set both the left and right levlels.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much better than consumer equipment I use these at church. I bought two, one for live recording, one for playing background tracks for guest musicians. Having two identical devices means learning only one set of controls and features. I had a more compact TASCAM CD recorder previously. It is no longer offered. The feature set and controls are very familiar from that older deck. For playback, it is extremely easy to queue the correct track, and the unit can be programmed to stop at the end of each track. No lunging for the mute or stop to prevent playing through to the next track. For recording, the count down timer shows time remaining before end of disk (79 minutes 57 seconds). It is best to avoid using the last 10 seconds. One may insert a track mark during recording without forcing silence or missing input. I use analog inputs from tape out of my mixer. The input level meters and controls are handy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and great B&H Service! The CD-RW900MKII has everything I was looking for in a stand alone CD burner! Perfect for burning discs in my project studio. The precise dual mono level controls are ideal for getting the absolute hottest signal to each side of the stereo image. I was a little leery of the dual mono control, it does make fade-in and fade-out a bit more difficult, but the function is perfect for tweaking the signal. I simply use the output control of my multitrack send to control fade-ins and outs. The service and quick shipping from B&H is outstanding!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy It! I haven't purchased a song in some 2 odd years. Its great. Buy it! And buy it from B&H. Very reliable. Have dealt with them 4 times now. Bought a 50 inch plasma a few years ago and it arrived the next day. Somebody must have driven it down from NY.
