How would that help people who need 4 XLR inputs?  Did you mean 680?

You lack sensitivity to humor or cynicism...but funny you mention that...

For me - I was looking to move away from rack pres and ADs feeding a JB3 that I had used for a decade...

Either of these decks was fine - I was one of the people who opted for the DR-70D because it had 4 XLRS!!!!

It seemed more flexible - and seemed part of the same series of products as the DR-60D - so I assumed the same reliability - enhanced by their fake "approved card" list.

But I could have lived with the 60...hence.

This.

I used to have 70D envy, but glad I've stuck with the 60D at this point although my taper buddies that have 70D's haven't yet experienced the glitch issue.

No, I'd say it's more related to an obsession with responding to every negative comment that's ever been written and ever will be written on taperssection related to the DR70D.     :love: :spin: :yahoo:

Tinybox into tracks 3 and 4 on the 60D works great for me to have a small 4 XLR input deck. Also allows greater flexibility on location of the 4 XLR inputs. The Tinybox does not really add much to the form factor.

Here is a much better thread to use to discuss the DR-70D!

I call it "GRIPE ABOUT TASCAM! What is wrong with them?!"

OK now that I've posted that, I am going to bring up the next major problem I am having with this recorder. It looks like Gustav Mahler, and it's called Voltronic.

You are really pushing it with me, trying to limit my freedom of expression, and I will not soon forget this.

Why are you still on this thread, anyway?  You're not contributing anything helpful to the discussion.  Instead, you jump on here every time someone brings up an issue and call for product recalls or a grand inquisition.  Since the Tascam rep isn't here anymore to read those, what's the point, other than your own self-gratification?  You know full well that the things you're asking for have zero chance of ever happening.  I get the need to vent your frustration, but it's really starting to get old and tired - someone please change the record.  Some of us here want to actually talk about using this unit, and to help each other figure things out even when we have had some very serious disagreements (such as Tonedeaf and myself).  If you aren't even using the 70D anymore, maybe it's time to move on.

I am not using the DR-70D much anymore because that recorder, and this thread are bumming me out a lot! It's hard to even want to try to make a recording with the piece of junk, when I KNOW that I need to run it as the B-unit due to its lack of reliability. But, that said, do I not have a right to participate in a discussion? Even inject my opinions which are different from yours? No?

I will not "MOVE ON" - especially now that it was suggested by the insufferable Gus.

Deal with me.

Good luck finding a tinybox, though!  Now that they have been discontinued, they are pretty scarce.  There are other small XLR pres, but none (that I can think of) as small as tinybox...

So, my glitched card - failed when re-purposed in my camera...no pictures saved.

Now - my other "good" Lexar card - worked fine in the DR-70D - put it in the camera - no pictures saved...

So now the DR-70D has broken my camera...
