    Tascam DR-10X reviews

    DR-10X Plug-On Micro Linear PCM Recorder (XLR) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Quality and Long Recording Time, Simple to use... I wired up a contributor with a Sony ECM55B (Self Powered / Single AA / Condenser Mic) on this Tascam DR-10X as a body pac for an all day recording run... it worked great on just one AAA bat for over eight hours! (I never ran it out.) Our interviews are to an SD 633 with SMTPE Timecode for a Red Epic Dragon Jam Sync. Swapping the 55B's XLR to my multitrack and/or using a Sennheiser 416 Shotgun for a 2nd source and I am fast and set. (We can't have cables and are often filming Boat to Boat.) Would I like the same unit WITH SMPTE timecode? ... Sure... but for its price point, form factor, 48kHz recording, and ease of use... I will WaveForm sync later and have a high quality recording on and off camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but plastic is its downfall I have three of these units. Why? The answer is simple, they work but they also have issues because they are plastic. I would easily pay an additional $100 to have this in anodized aluminum of some other metal. The sound is great and I use them in motorsports coverage interviewing drivers, etc. I have it attached to e a Sennheiser MD46 and the audio is crisp and you don't get a lot of background noise. Where the problem comes in is that they don't take a beating. If you drop your mic, your unit is pretty much toast. Also, there is a set screw underneath the locking mechanism that gets very loose. When that happens you get static because the connection to the mic becomes unstable. If you keep that tight screw tight it will help tremendously. I recommend the DR-10X but I would ask Tascam to PLEASE make an upgrade to this using a metal housing. I pledge to by three new replacements for my existing units when you do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for use in interview settings nice little recorder. no way to see levels during recording, but after some try outs with the mic you use, distance to recording subject and gain settings (low, mid, high) you get a feel for how to use it with good levels. second track at lower db is great & crucial to use (in my opinion). the recorder is somewhat fragile but for the low price you will have to substitute for that with extra care. I use it with a rode nt3 (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/233750-REG/Rode_NT3_NT3_Microphone.html), a condenser mic with its own battery powered phantom power & have been getting good results.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Giving it a chance in the field I plan to use this for radio news. Have only had a chance to play with it at home so far. Seems like it should be a good extra recorder for field work at times when I need to travel light and not have as many cables to deal with while interviewing. Managing the recording levels is a bit of a hassle as it appears that you can't adjust it during the recording. But you can preset it and it seems like that works. The way the headphone cable attaches makes handling it a little odd feeling, but maybe I just have to get used to it. It does feel a little plasticky cheap, but I guess that makes it light! Sound is okay with dynamic omni mic. Plan to try it with short shotgun condenser. Overall I like it so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Solution in a Small Package Pro: This is a great little widget for gun and go sound. Used it with my Sennheiser MD-46 while shooting a very noisy event. Worked just great. Fantastic to be able to use a pro eng mic when needed without having to carry a field recorder, xlr cables etc. or wireless while shooting solo. I am used to second system audio, so no problem there. Really light and simple way to CYA for location sound. Not much bigger than the mic itself. Runs for hours on one AAA battery. Headphone monitoring works fine too. Amazing tool for the price. The display is also super bright and readable even if small. And the backup track which can be recorded at a lower volume is a smart idea. Con: Construction is plastic. It is sturdy, but not the sort of commercial bullet proof some folks want, but considering the price point, you can't have it all. Not as quiet as the DR-60d. There is a slight noise floor hiss. Not a problem for field work, but this isn't a studio recorder. The advantage of having a pro mic. and a light simple sound solution far outweighs any slight quibbles. Conclusion: Genius piece of kit for light and nimble location sound. Far more affordable than wireless and no (almost) chance of rf interference. For this price, even as backup this is great. What are you waiting for?!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Affordable Multi-use PCM Recorder Small. Light weight, Affordable. Wonderfully easy to use. Great for news coverage, actualities & natural sound. The addition of a belt clip would help. No phantom power for a shotgun is a real drawback. The dual track recording for overload protection is a real plus.
    Date published: 2015-01-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, very compact The DR-10X is compact and has great sound. It minimizes handling noise compared to having a cable connection to a recorder. My only small complaint is that it takes a bit of getting used to to be able to stop recording and turn off the unit. The dual recording mode has proven very useful -- to have a second recording at -6 dB from the main one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a fantastic and inexpensive recorder I use this on Capitol Hill. It's super easy to tote around and always have at the ready - audio quality with a regular mic attached is way better than any smart phone in a pich. Used in combination with my Tascam DR MK II at a news conference, I can leave the one connected to the mult and quickly catch lawmakers - free of cables - with the DR 10X. The only change I'd like to see would be for this unit to use regular sized SD cards rather than micro SD, but with its compact size, I understand the use of the smaller card.
