my opinion, having owned plenty of Tascam decks, and Sony D3 cassette recorder, D7/8 dats, and four m10's, is that the Tascam is a bunch more likely than the Sony to let you down. The stock line in is better than the Tascam's, and although the Sony m10 preamps are nothing to write home about, they're better. And they're a lot better than the Sony A10 preamps, which suck, imho.

So which device's preamps are something to write home about?

none. The Sony D100 is too big to stealth.

Find a stock Sony M10 or a Marantz PMD 620, and have the seller ship to Doug Oade at Oade Brothers Audio. Drop Doug a line first, Dougoade@yahoo.com. He doesn't advertise the M10 mod, but he does it. Personally I like the Marantz better for stealth because it has no volume knob, and all controls lock out internally. I like the warm mod best, but ymmv. Best $150-200 you'll ever spend. He will do the same mod on both m10 and 620.

Hello Marc,

I'm thinking about having one of my M10's modded by Doug.  Do you know what the difference is between these two mods offered?  I did not see a Warm Mod offered.

david, I'm not familiar with those mods, but Doug will absolutely do a warm mod on an m10, I asked him a few months back. Give him a call, or email at Doug@yahoo.com, he'll be happy to answer any questions. I think that a mod is a must if you own a baby nbox. Good luck!
