Of course, you're going to have to do a head on preamp comparison with your 70d.

No problem, I'm running a matrix for a local band tomorrow night with AT4050's onstage (split omni). I'll run the 70D for the first set and 680 for the second. Any other requests?

A bit of bad news as far as external power goes--the MKii uses a smaller size external adapter.  The one for the MKi doesn't fit.

OD 4.75mm x ID 1.7mm (adapt-a-plug size C) seems to fit the best. 

OD 4.0mm x ID 1.7mm (adapt-a-plug size B) also worked but was not as snug as the C.

WTF?

Why change it to something smaller, the old one worries me enough about being robust enough not to break.

Yeah, someone once yanked on my friend's 680 while it was plugged in and now the jack is messed up to where he can't jiggle the cable the littlest bit or it looses power so he has to tape the cable in position.  I learned this the hard way when I went to get patch out of it and it shut off as I was trying to plug in some rca cables.  Luckily it was a local band but I felt bad for doing it.

I guess Tascam's supplier changed the connector when they upgraded the power unit--change in connector is unexpected.

I wanted to verify whether the mkii can be cascaded with an original 680 and emailed Tascam several weeks ago, but haven't received a reply.   So I'll just keep my $.

Tom Duffy from TASCAM confirmed this a while ago. It works, no problems.

Of course, you're going to have to do a head on preamp comparison with your 70d.

Here are 3 samples from last night. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/9oym08ytp67wf7v/AABn0JR0ZsjM7hUVLVn1V9SVa?dl=0

Mics were mounted on a railing/splash gaurd about 30" above the stage lip and split 7'-8' apart.

The only change I made is raise the levels a few dB in post.

I have a hard time differentiating between the 2 recorders, which speaks well for the 70D. Let me know what you think.

£140/195E at Thomman:

Considering that this is exactly what I paid for a secondhand mki a couple of months ago, I'm a little bit gutted...

Absolutely love mine though - I've already saved countless hours that would have otherwise been spent on time-stretching etc.
