A Very Decent Digital Recorder
EdTan, 01.04.2020
It is compact and easy to use once you are familiar with the menu. Recording is very decent and playback is fine through the earphone but is weak through the bulit in mono speaker. Otherwise it is an excellent product if you are not looking for frills and high end performance.

A must have for every producer
Adrian0072, 07.05.2020
The Tascam DR05X is probably the best value for money that Thomann offers. In the 2 months that I have had mine I have been amassing a huge collection of stereo sounds for my productions. It's easy to use menu reminds me of the beloved Nokia 3310- in a good way. The microphones are also very responsive across the frequency spectrum and going outside with the headphones plugged in allows me to hear the faint rumbles of aircrafts many many miles away. It does seem a little fragile, but that is nothing that a lanyard cannot fix.

Light, very easy to use, very decent and clear sound
iosafdal, 21.07.2019
As a cheap, handy recorder this is perfect. Sound is clear and distinct for the price. Very simple and easy to use, no faffing around. Perfect for when I need a quick, light recorder. Obviously not for large pro recording projects but in its price category I think it punches slightly above its weight.
