This Tascam microphone recorder is fully tested and in good working condition. It has some scratches on its casing mostly on the corners and top of the unit. XLR port 1 does not lock when you put a cable in it. The port itself is working. It is missing the left side strap knob. The knob for the value has been replaced with a non oem knob. The two rounded corners in the front of the unit are a little bent in and are a little loose. It comes with its carrying field bag that has some scuffs on its sided and corners. It also comes with an 8GB SD/HC memory card and a non OEM power supply. The current rating of the non-oem power supply is 2 amps at 12 volts, whereas the original power supply (Tascam PS-1225L) is rated and 2.5 amp at 12 volts. I haven’t had any problems using this non-oem power supply and thought you would rather choose to have it than not have it, so I am throwing it in the bundle.
Tascam Microphone Recorder DR-680 Overview
TASCAM’s DR-680 brings multi-channel portable recording within reach of any musician for polished live, location and surround recordings. Up to eight tracks can be recorded to solid-state SD card media at 96kHz/24-bit Broadcast WAV quality. Six mic inputs provide phantom power and 60dB of gain for great-sounding recordings with your condenser microphones. Record the six microphones along with a digital S/PDIF source for 8 track recording. Each mic input has a selectable low cut filter and analog limiter for optimal sound.
Inputs can be monitored using a built-in mixer with level and pan controls for each input. The stereo mix-down can even be recorded along with the six mics for quick stereo playback of the event. There’s even a built-in speaker to check recordings without headphones.
In addition to WAV recording up to 96kHz, the DR-680 captures stereo audio at 192kHz/24-bit for audiophile-quality masters. The DR-680 records up to four channels of MP3 audio for web-ready recordings. Two of the recorders can be connected with a cascade cable for up to 14-track recording on battery power.
Multi-channel portable recording has never been as simple or affordable as the TASCAM DR-680.
