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?

What wall power cord can I use with this?

A buddy is borrowing mine for an art instillation and needs it plugged into the wall.  I don't think mine came with one when I bought it.  I know it needs an inverted power source.

^ Important, note the somewhat unusual reversed polatiry.  Plugging in a standard non-reversed polarity external supply can fry the external power input.

Thanks.  I was looking at that list last night. (by the way, I was thinking how great that compilation is, so thank you Ted). 

But, I couldn't seem to find a 2.1 mm reverse polarity wall wart online though.  Most seemed to be 2.5 mm.  I was wondering if anyone knew of a specific one.  Or could 2.5 mm work?

I use an old Sima power supply hat has interchangeable tips but I did have to hack it in the middle to reverse the polarity.

Well, for anyone else looking; apparently these are used mostly to power guitar petals pedals (not the flower kind) and keyboards.  Truetone makes the right power cable.  I just grabbed one from a local guitar shop.
