Simple to use, but highly effective as a high-quality recording and playback device. The lack of phantom-powered XLR inputs and the ability to record multiple tracks means that it won’t interest many recording musicians, but it should hold appeal to those wanting to capture high-quality audio...

  • +

    Sounds very good., Supports DSD recording., Innovative limiter and noise-reduction tools., Very robust., Large screen text., 32GB of internal memory can be expanded by 64GB, via a range of card media.

  • -

    No phantom-powered XLR inputs., Can’t be used as a computer interface., Adjusting the display contrast is not (yet) possible., Has very few ‘added value’ features., Bundled SoundForge LE software does not support DSD.

The build quality is great, the size is perfect (fits snugly in my small hands) AND it sounds amazing ! The display is large and the menus are easy to navigate. The mics are extremely sensitive and the preamps are extremely clean.

I've had my eye on digital audio recorders since the Sony D50 was still a new product. I always balked at their prices and went for the cheaper models like the Olympus 7 and Zoom 2 and was always disappointed.

The playback portion of D100 has been optimized comparing to its predecessor D50. It can also playback flac and aac regardless of its inability to record in those format. It also feature multi language interface. Build quality is good, full metal construction.

Imagine if after NASA spent billions on the Space Shuttle, they dragged it to the launch pad behind a donkey with a broken leg because they figured they'd already perfected the only part of the project that matters.

This is a solid chunk of hand held recorder hardware. The mics record nicely and provide very nice imaging and the preamps are pretty quiet. The included remote works great, and is nice for starting the recording process after you are comfortably seated with your guitar, or starting it on a stage...

Works perfectly, recordings are super clear - a real pleasure to use. I only record voice, but also keep hi-res audiophile music onboard as well.

Very nice unit, records well though LF is a little bit light in the loafers. For recording environmental, it's the bomb.

I've owned several portable stereo recorders throughout the years and I have have never been so impressed by all nearly everything about the recorder such as quiet preamps, the built in mics, sound quality, build quality, and the multiple recording options.

It is most difficult to operate the basics (record & playback)....the D50 model is MUCH MORE FRIENDLIER to use...this model D100 requires to much navigation for simple usage /*files, folders and placement whether built-in memory or pro stick memory...too complicated.

This is a first class recorder. What one cannot understand is that, after paying $ 774 for it, one still has to go out and buy an AC adaptor... Absolutely ridiculous !! Mean, mean, mean people...
