I don't get this mkiii.  If it offers sound quality comparable to a sd702 in a smaller package for $500, maybe.  If it is just another tascam for $500, no way.

I still don't understand why noone has developed a simple 24bit PCM recorder with nothing but a spdif input. It's 2016 and we *still* don't have a simple bit bucket.
Recording:
Capsules: Schoeps mk41v (x2), mk4v (x2), mk22 (x2), mk3 (x2), mk21 & mk8
Cables: 2x nbob KCY, 1 pair nbob actives, Darktrain 2 and 4 channel KCY extensions:
Preamps:    Naiant Littlebox, Naiant IPA, Naiant PFA, Sound Devices Mixpre6
Recorders: Sound Devices Mixpre6, Sony PCM m10
Home Playback: Mytek DSD 192> Adcom SLC 505> Marantz Ma500 (x2)> Eminent Tech LFT-16; Musical Fidelity xCan v2> Hifiman HE-400
Office Playback: Grace m903> AKG k701

Ten years ago, that would have been a reasonable idea. A manufacturer isn't going to make a unit just for the folks still using a V3.

guys, please answer. Can you set whether you want to use line or mic using XLR connection. In the old Tascam Dr100 MK II, you had a switch which let you choose mic or line in.

Here is what I am talking about
Is this possible with the new unit? Thanks

Mic is for microphone level input signals and Line is for Line level ie from an instrument such as an electric guitar.  Different amounts of gain are used for each setting.l

Looks like the digital adapter cable is a simple 3.5mm mono plug to the rca female. Less esoteric than the adapter for the DR100mk2.

It's good to see that they actually have that list ready to go at product release, unlike the 70D.

Yes, give them credit for publishing the list of approved cards upon release of the DR100mkiii and for making the screen bigger so hopefully it will be easier to monitor input levels.

Hello -   I just got my new recorder and am very impressed by the functionality. I never had a desire for a dr100 series recorder until this one.
 The owners manual is close to worthless though. The menu system is pretty intuitive but there is one setting I don't understand. On the i/o page
there is a selection marked a/d filter. I understand that it is the analog/digital filter. The four selections for that are FIR1, FIR2, SHORT DELAY1 and
SHORT DELAY2. What does this mean and which selection should I use? Thanks for your help.

I got this from a Google translation of the Japanese reference manual, not yet released in English:

To select the characteristics of the digital filter. (A / D filter)
You can select the characteristics of the digital filter at the time of A / D converter
It is. This allows you to change the tone of the post-conversion.
1. Select. A / D filter. Item of the input and output setting. Screen,. To display the A / D filter. Screen. (→ .10 page "Basic operations Using the Menu")
2. Select the characteristics of the A / D filter.
SHORT DELAY1
(initial value)
Hints
FIR digital filter
In proven filter in sound quality than conventional, tone that combines the sharpness of sound-out the sound of the dense, rich sound it is characterized.
SHORT.DELAY type digital filter
There is no pre-echo to the impulse response, the rise and decay of the sound is a natural, sound close to the original sound is characterized.

Choices
Content
Use the FIR type digital filter of the slow roll-off characteristic to sharply cut the signal out of the audio band.

FIR1
Use the FIR type digital filter of the slow roll-off characteristic that gradually cut the signal out of the audio band.

FIR2
Use the SHORT.DELAY type digital filter of sharp roll-off characteristics that sharply cut the signal out of the audio band.
Use the SHORT.DELAY type digital filter of the slow roll-off characteristic that gradually cut the signal out of the audio band.
SHORT DELAY2
