Just got it and love it. This is an extremely sturdy unit, built to last. Buttons, panels, inputs, slot loading: everything about it is durable.

Function seems to be great as well. The keyboard input and remote are great features and (as professional gear) it is free from SCMS (and of course the "Music CD"). The gain controls (record level setting) are essential for proper transfers from analog material and seem to be very sturdy as well. Separate knobs for each channel is a thoughtful approach and they have a nice feel. Input controls are typically the achilles heel of any recording equipment (eventually the rheostats get dirty and start making noise on the source when you move them, though we may be beyond that nowadays), so we'll see about that in a few years. I do hope they are as well made as the rest of it.

This is pro quality equipment and would be equally at home in a studio rack or in a high end system. It has 24 bit converters and the quality and ease of recording is great. While it will even play MP3's (though not sure why one would need it to), it has pitch control and will also do direct digital dubs.

Of course we can also put it in the rack in the home studio, but the bottom line for a lot of what I expect to be doing with it: If you want a CD recorder to make lossless transfers from legacy analog sources (cassettes, LP's, etc.) this is the equipment to get. It's worth paying a bit more than the pro-sumer products (and it's really not that much more here). I have Sony pro-sumer stuff in my stereo system and this machine is WAY more solid than any of that. Even the patch panel for inputs (in the back) is rock solid (far better than any home or pro-sumer equipment and even than most of the "pro" gear I've seen).

The Tascam CD-RW900SL is just what the doctor ordered for us. We are small church that was still using cassette recording for our services and weren't sure how we would like making the change to CD recording, but the Tascam recorder made the transition easy and painless. It was easy to set up and the instructions that came with it were clear and user friendly. The recordings are crystal clear. I would recommend this model to anyone desiring to use CD recording.

I wanted to get something that would approximate a reel to reel tape deck, but without all the hassles of maintenance issues, shedding tapes, finding tapes... This fits the bill nicely!

As many who get things like this, I wanted to archive my record albums, and create daily use CDs as well. I'm not concerned about de-clicking them, or otherwise processing them. After reading several posts about this unit, I decided to go for it. I got it from Amazon. It doesn't come with interconnect cables, but it does have a remote.

After allowing it to warm up, and reading the parts in the manual about how to record, I first popped an old CD into the player, and a blank CD into the Tascam. I decided to hook the Onkyo CD player directly to the Tascam using a TOSLINK optical connector. This allows them to communicate somewhat, and allows easy dubbing of CDs, albeit in real time. I used the Sync function to start it recording right when the CD started playing, which seems to have cut off the beginning of the first note of the first song. (I used it again later, and it seemed fine) Anyway, the levels went to the ragged edge of 0 db, but never into the red zone. Playback of the recorded disc was perfect. I was able to play it back on an old Panasonic portable player from 1993, and while it played fine, when skipping to different tracks, on a few tracks it seemed to take a lot of time going back and forth between reading the TOC and finding the track. In the end, it's probably pretty impressive that I was able to play it on a 20 year old CD portable player in the first place!

I then cued up another blank CD, and proceeded to record a few albums. I set the levels and proceeded to let it run.

What a difference 1/2 price makes!! I bought the HHB Dual Disc Burner for over a Grand ($) and although it looks tight, the cd trays immediately turned me off, very very flimsy. Not a good first impression on a 'Professional' CD Recorder that lists for over $1000.
So I took a chance and popped for this Tascam and quite the opposite reaction, out of the box I was impressed with the look and feel of this unit. The buttons have a 'positive' feel to them unlike the HHB whose buttons felt loose and sloppy. And the Digital 'Syncro' start worked perfectly unlike the HHB DualBurn which for the life of me, could NOT get it to start recording when I started the Digital 'Source' master. So there you go, great features, not lacking any at all, heck even more than the hhb (Pitch control for one) and at less then half the price I paid....I love Amazon.com and the retailer I got this from......

This CD recorder kinda reminds me of my Nakamichi Tape decks. The controls are easy to use and the sound quality is good. I use the Tascam to record my LPs to CD. The fade in requires that the sync be turned off for recording LPs. I waisted a few CDs finding this out. Finalizing the disc requires that you push the multi jog button twice, not stated in the manual. The level meters are pretty good. The meters also use a peak hold that makes it easy to set the levels. A key board can be used to add text or titles to the CD. This CD recorder out performs my Nakamichi tape decks. I recommend this recorder to any audiophile wanting to record his LPs.
