Does anyone have a line on a decent case?  Can't seem to find one on ebay or amazon.

I found two belt worn flip phone cases at a dollar store that are a snug fit for both the M10 and my Tinybox.

I've used this for years.  Flap doesn't quite fold over all the way, but the M10 is in the snug and it's well protected by the thick neoprene.

Anyone know of a belt case that will fit the M10, 9100, and a small cable?

Does anyone know how the M10's internal preamps compare to the h4n pro? I run CA14>Ugly Battery Box (no gain)>h4n pro and enjoy the pulls... I'm wondering about switching out the h4n pro for an m10 though, for convenience and size reduction.

I know the M10's better than the standard H4n's, but what about the h4n pro? (which I believe uses the same internal preamps as the h5)

Edit: Nevermind :) Did some comparisons by searching the archive for "m10 ca14 ubb", "m10 ca14" (to check out shows w/ a preamp) and then compared a few of both of those shows to my pulls- the h4n pro preamps are noticeably quieter but nothing groundbreaking, especially during the actual songs for rock shows (I had to listen to quiet portions to really get a sense of the difference)

Greetings,

I pulled Los Lobos this past weekend, Friday at Belly Up Tavern, Sat at The Coach House. As per usual I packed up the gear and stuck my M10 in my pocket to review on the drive home. Load car, plug M10 in and turn it on...nada, zilch, nothing, it won't turn on. Panic sets in...was it actually on when I opened the bag...yes, was the time clock running...yes. So I pulled over and stuffed fresh batteries in...same result, nothing, just a blank screen. Well not much to see at midnight on a dark street so I drive home, pull the card and all the files were there, no issues, whew!

Still bummed that it's gone.

Have any of you experienced this?

Thanks,

Strat

Could it possibly be the power switch? I have one M10 with the opposite problem: It refuses to turn off when I flip the power/hold switch, so if I want to shut it off I need to temporarily remove the batteries. If yours isn't recognizing the switch when you tried to turn it on, that could be producing this result.

Could it be that the unit is coming on and just the display is shot? I guess that's as bad as having a dead deck

FWIW, my M10 wont save the time from power up to power up.... even with fresh batteries left in the unit for an hour or two.

Are these units dying a slow death after many years of use and abuse?

try plugging it in with the wall wart. Might have an internal battery that holds the clock and the settings. Just a guess ???

Thanks for the replies,

Yes, I thought about the switch and also the display. I did try the wall wart last night...same result, nada. In my mind I always worried that it would be either the Line In jack or the switch...I figured one of these would go first as they get the most action at a gig. I’m guessing I got over a 100 shows on that deck at about 500-600 hours. Seems kinda light, oh well. I still have one left, I will make that the MK4 deck and use the DR2d for the AT853 backup rig. I guess I’ll look into maybe a Roland 07 or the Sony A10...??

Thanks again for the replies.

Strat

I would recommend leaving it on for a while, not force it off. I seem to remember there is an internal battery that loses it' charge after a while in the off position.

That I have not tried, thanks, will give it a go over the weekend!
