Slick little box of technology.
What is your opinion of this product?
I gave it 4 stars because I'm still trying to learn how to use it. I'm liking what I've learned about it so far, still much more to go. If you're an older rocker used to a 10" reel to reel like I am, it's going to take some time and effort to learn its' operation. It helps to be a teckno-wizzard.

What is your opinion of this product?
Being a tascam four track owner back in the 80s I am so happy to see that they still keep it simple. Although it a long way since cassettes the layout is quite the same and the quality is amazing. Getting through a recording from start to master is a breeze do to the step by step layout and the sound quality is crisp and clear. I would suggest this little gem to anyone who's getting started and wants to learn the recording process, but don't be fooled this machine will produce cd quality masters and a boat load of fun!
