Works great, very easy to use.
I push PLAY to start recording, as instructed, and 12 seconds later ....COM ERROR> As instructed, I shut the machine off for a minute.

After what I considered a fair trial, I returned the unit for refund.

TEAC CD-RW890 CD Recorder with Remote (Black)
Although the teac cd-rw890 is simple to use and has an easy single disc loading feature with remote control to boot, it suffers from some aspects that may be important to the consumer who is articulate with what they record. The biggest lacking feature would be the fact that there isn't any modification of recording such as the EQ effects in some models. The second would be the lack of labeling a disc and or each song title or track title, since there isn't any remote feature or onboard feature for this. Although these functions are not available, this unit records full on with volume control and sync transfer and settings for track induction that may be wanted for silence inbetween tracks. For the price, it is still a viable recording deck.

I've only used this unit for a brief period of time--so I can't assess its longevity. However, I could tell right away that it has some really disappointing limitations in its basic functions.

The most obvious limitation is the lack of an input level volume knob. If you're accustomed to doing manual fade-outs (or fade-ins), then you have to use buttons (which, of course, only adjust the volume in increments that don't transition quite as smooth). Oh--and you can only adjust the ANALOG input level. Yup--the Digital Optical input level is FIXED. (Yuck.)

If you're recording something and you want to separate tracks during a continuous piece of music, it creates a short DROP-OUT (!) in sound when you hit the button to create a new track number. Wha??? That's right. The manual even mentions this--I guess so you don't think it's broken. I kinda wish I realized this issue before I bought the thing.

The input level Display is kinda choppy...
and I think it may also be a bit innaccurate about hitting above 0 dB.

Overall, this thing probably should not be used for anything really critical like burning master discs in a home studio. It seems to basically be useful for (1) making first-generation digital copies of existing CDs or (2) making compilation discs from various CDs using Analog input.

It's not that bad--but it's not that good either.

It would be OK if it only cost $100-$130 ... Unfortunately, it sells for about double that price
and it may be the last component of its type available on the market these days.
So if you're desperate for a new stand-alone CD recorder-- and you can't spend for "professional" gear--
this may be your only option.

Like another reviewer, I bought this unit to replace my Sony 500C which has apparently been discontinuted. This is a good product overall except that the recording levels have to be set to the maximum in order to get satisfactory results. As much as I tried, I could not bring the sound levels past the halfway mark on the meter recording. With most tape or cd recorders, the levels will occasionally stray into the "hot" area when hitting a musical peak. There's not a chance of this happening based on my experience with this machine. Perhaps it's a defect in my particular unit. Any any case, Teac doesn't mention any phone-in technical support in the instruction manual. I wonder if anyone else has encountered the same problem with this model.

First let me say that I love my Maxell cassette tapes and my record player to death! Having to convert my precious tapes to CD's really pains me because the technology is so user friendly! If you make a mistake you can rewind and do it over on the same tape. With blank CD's you have to throw away the whole CD and start all over again AND all CD-RW's don't play on all systems! Having said that this unit here is a nice replacement for my Philips CDR-770 which went dead on me! I had bought it in the 90's and it was a nice unit and made good CD's BUT towards the end it got picky about what blank CD's I could use. I could use a Philips,Maxell, or Memorex but in the end it would only burn on Sony Music CD's before it just stop recording all together. So far I have used Maxell and Sony Music CD's with no problems, GREAT! The pros on this unit is that if I play a cassette with out stopping the unit it will go to another track if it's set at the right SVL level which in my case is -30, if the music on the tape was recording from a CD, if you have a bit of silence between records BUT it can put songs that were recorded from a record on the same track which you will need to look out for. It's not an issue with me because I have 12 hundred plus tapes and don't have a lifetime to stop and start for each track! Another PRO is that it finalizes almost in seconds unlike my Philips which took almost 5 minutes AND you don't have to put 3 seconds of silence between each song like the Philips, so the industry improved on that. The CON on this unit so far is that you have to reset the volume every time the unit stops or is paused! That was the good thing on my Philips it kept that setting even after the unit was turned off. Another thing that bothers me is that is they put the "TIME" button on the remote and not the unit itself, so in order to check how much time you have left on the CD you have to have the remote handy. Otherwise it suits its purpose and I'm happy to have it!
