Can you tell us more about the accuacy of the meters vs the 70d or the 60d mkii (because the numbers showed on them seam wrong to me)

Maybe they will offer some discounted promotional pricing to get units selling like they did with the 70d.

Don't say anything good about my pics … I could feel a motivation to post more. Like this one - showing the SPS200 within the loom. I used the Rycote gag ball for dust protection.

I don't know if you mean me … I never had a 70d or 60d MKII in my hands … The numbers I see on the 701D are surely not in dB scales and frankly I don't care what they really show - these are just numbers for comparison of the channel input level settings. I want to have the inputs for the four channels of my SPS200 ganged and matched and then I record quite conservative with levels because there are no limiters before the A/D. The levels can be set at an offset and ganged from there.The 701D works very well for me as straightforward stereo or four channel recorder. I really like this little machine - it should have some software improvements: four channel recording without the mixdown going to Ch 5+6 and being always embedded - I delete these channels afterwards to get a four channel interleaved Wave. The ability to route the little bus powered stereo input to channel 5+6 instead of the mixdown would also be nice.

On the 60d or 70d the input gain meter is a little misleading: getting the levels peaking around where the little triangle hashmark is, results in fairly low recordings. It's the same thing on the 701d ?

 I think so … but I like conservative metering - if it is not a very good metering like with the 744T. With 24 bit there is not much to worry about. If you have enough experience with the device and know the behaviour, just turn up the gain a bit …  ;)

Ahh, I love those BBG's! If my Movo screens don't cut it this summer, I'm getting [4] BBG/Windjammers for all my caps :)

Well, I switched from 70D to 701D and I love my decision. Hoever I paid half the retail price for it.

I like the casing, which is a Al/Mg casting, and parts can be replaced easily. Screen has a nice feature, never turning the backlight off totally. It operates in two modes so you can actually see what the thing is recording even during the night, so you dont have to press anything and get pops and clicks into the recording.

Easier to match levels now as faders levels are displayed on the screen. Or assign them to a group and tweak one only.

Can record infrasonic to about 3-4Hz.  Flat @ 10Hz.

The menu is a long list, a bit dumb tho`.

newest firmware, bold are standouts to me.  I haven't tested yet.

Quote
· Support was added for recording with Ambisonic mics.

 Recording in Ambisonic A and B formats is possible.
 When B format is selected, FuMa or AmbiX can be selected.
 Three mic orientations can be set according to the mic placement.
 TASCAM XRI is supported, and Ambisonic mic settings can be saved in the file metadata when BWF is selected.
B format audio can be converted to stereo and monitored.
 Audio from individual A and B format channels can be monitored directly.
The menu structure changes to a dedicated one when using the Ambisonic function.

· The number of characters for the user word setting for file names has been increased from 6 to 9.
· A function has been added that allows you to press and hold the MENU button to go back one page when the Menu Screen is open.

Looking at the monitor menu in Ambisonic mode you get:
stereo mix
FLU
FRD
BLD
BRU
W
X
Y
Z
camera in
FLU+FRD
BLD+BRU

Hi everyone!


I have a TASCAM DR-701D on which the screen went blank half way through a recording. It would still record if I press the button, turn on and off, and I believe I even manage to do a firmware update. Even tough, the screen turns on, displays first letters, which then start to go wrong to finally leave the screen empty.
Apparently the fault is with the display driver and the control port is still functioning properly so the PCB needs changing (this is what I've been told).I don't know anything about electronics but I was wondering if this would be straight forward repair for me to do if I bought the part or if I buy the part and take it to my local repair shop they would be able to do it. Many thanks.

Just discovered that in Dual Recording mode the secondary file is polarity reversed from the primary file, and it is not documented as such in the manual.  I dropped Tascam a note....

They really have to with the competition from Zoom F4 and MixPre3!
But sadly Tascam seem to be MIA with sharply competition options in $400 and up market place.
