In my experience and from what I've read here and on GS it's not a bad out. A lot of studio guys monitor pre daw with the mini- me headphone out to studio monitors.

Anybody have an issue with running an external (talentcell) battery to the point of the battery dying and the r-44 powering off, then not being able to use any fully charged external battery after that? I've seen a few issues in prior threads about external power not working on the 44's but I'm just curious if I can use aa's to go in and see if a setting changed due to the talentcell dying or if I should start shopping for rechargable aa's.

Sounds like the dc input is fried!  I had one fixed when I owned a r44 for $80

Mini-me has a headphone out you could use?
You are correct, that could be a step saving option if the quality is good. I forgot that there is a 1/8th headphone output on the back panel. Good catch!

Yes!
I even have a cable that will do that job!
The headphone out has a volume knob and a button for stereo and mono, so you have to be careful not to run mono. Tapping the mics will let you know right away. I did some sample taping and found that there is very little difference (to my ear) between going through the digital stage in the microtrack II and the headphone out, but the microtrack gave me more confidence, even though it ALWAYS makes me reset the sampling rate and restart to lock in a signal.

I will take some pictures of the giant mess and post them.

Thanks for advice and attention!
this is definitely not normal

This!
It also happened to me. If it works with AAs, then that is likely the thing.
I got my deck modded by Doug Oade since he was fixing that, too. (Or was it the other way around?)

Eneloop's are probably the best bet then?
