Tascam DR-40

Judges' Comments

Verdict: These contraptions are amazing. We use them for the local high school band and orchestra concert festival. Judges use them to make comments as the ensembles are playing. The auto gain works great. The sound quality is wonderful. We move the files to Dropbox.
