I went in blind and for my unrefined ears I liked source 1 better going from my Sound Blaster Mp3+>Onkyo Reciever>JBL speakers, but the difference was not staggering...For a guy like me with no cash, this is something great to keep in mind when I ditch my MD...This has actually got me considering doing that very thing...Ahhh the bliss of choices...someday I too will be a gear slut. I can see it now...

I am excited about the competition. sounds like its even through the responces. If i can get a d10 for about $300 I will get it, if not I will stick to the nomad.
I really would like to stealth better though , the jb3 is kinda  large to fool with during a show.

No crotching needed for the JB3. Everyone thinks it's a cd player not a recorder.

JB3 Team Bama tested & approved since 02. ;)

I'm at work too. I'll try and grab these over the weekend, but I've already done a very informal test of my own.

My first JB3 recording outing was just feeding it an analog signal because  that's all I had. I think the recording sounds fine.

This does not however take into account the problems we occasionally hear people having with JB3 analog input where you can hear the drive spin up. If you happen to hit that during a quiet passage it could be a problem. That was one reason I got the AD-20 front end.

I'd be interested to hear a similar test using gain on the JB3 which seems to be where the problems stem from.

I'll have to take a listen when I get home. Going tapeless sounds nice, but off the top of my head I think the M1/D100  would still be preferred if your stealthing. I don't have experience with the JB3, but aren't level meters on the JB3 hard to see? And I would imagine adjusting the recording level would be MUCH easier with the M1/D100. Not to mention the M1/D100 seems like it would be easier to crotch.

Though if the sound isn't to far off, I just might have to pick up a JB3 for non-stealthing situations

To me, the difference between the NJB3 and DAT isn't a sound quality issue, it's a matter of accessibility.  I've recorded, mastered, and burned 50 hours of footage in one month (Sept 2002) using a NJB3.  A DAT rig would have required TWO MORE DAYS of transfer time, two days I didn't have, not to mention $250 in tapes and $30 in batteries, more than I paid for my NJB3.

To a frequent taper such as myself, the difference in sound quality is moot when the recording format prevents you from recording in the first place, especially when the sound quality difference is almost negligible.  I'd rather jam a Rode NT4 into a NJB3 and record twice as many shows than pay more to record less footage "better".

I would like to hear this. I have been running mp2>ua5>jb3. I ran mp2>jb3 last week and it sounded pretty nice. Since I have been looking to downsize my rig I think its time for me to test the a/d stage in the ua5 verus the jb3
