Lovely piece of kit at a great price point
Rick A, 14.12.2020
My goodness how things have changed since the good old days when I had my first Fostex 4 track tape recorder! The quality of the components is what sets this recorder apart from the crowd, with care and attention to detail that ensures mic preamplification is not just good but truly excellent and signal to noise ratio is very high indeed. I deducted a point for handling simply because it's got too many darned knobs and switches for such a small device, but I did feel guilty doing so because I know that the features it has are all things that top level amateurs and lower level professions are looking for. Anyway... if 8 channels and 10 tracks of very high quality recording capability is your thing then I really do not think you can do any better!

Un jouet extra
tontonbrahms866, 17.06.2019
FABRICATION :

Excellente qualité de fabrication.
Ca respire le sérieux alors bien sûr tout est miniaturisé, mais je n'ai aucun soucis à l'utiliser. Les mini potars de volume sont en métal, ils offrent une très bonne résistance au toucher.
Pour tout dire je trouve ce Zoom très agréable à utiliser.
Les 8 prises combo Xlr/jack sont parfaites,
Une prises jack 6,35 pour l'écoute au casque
Une mini prises jack pour la sortieSub Out 1/2
Sortie L&R sur mini Xlr.
Zoom vends les câbles adaptateurs vers XLR standards assez cher mais j'en avais besoin tout de suite.

ALIMENTATION :

Le compartiment pile est pratique et solide, Zoom l'a changé par rapport au F8, il est beaucoup mieux maintenant.
Les 8 piles Alcalines tiennent 2/3 heures avec les alimentation Phantom.
J'utilise une alimentation sur batterie pour pédale de guitare : la Falken1 MegaPower avec un Rockboard Flat Polarity Reverser AS et l'adaptateur Zoom DHC-.
C'est absolument parfait je tiens une journée avec.
Je laisse des piles alcalines neuves dans le compartiment du Zoom au cas où l'alimentation sur batterie s'arrête.
Si on coupe l'alimentation le Zoom bascule automatique sur les piles.
Une bonne sécurité

PARTIE AUDIO :

Les préamplis micro sont d'excellente qualité avec 75db de gain.
Aucun souffle et ils sonnent vraiment bien.
Les Advance Limiter sont inspirés de Sound Devices et fonctionnent à merveille. Il y a une analyse en amont du limiteur et si il y a un risque de saturation, le préamplificateur baisse de 10 db le signal avant le limiteur. C'est très efficace.
L'enregistrement se fait sur les 2 cartes SD en même temps.
C'est une sécurité en cas de défaillance d'une des 2 cartes.

Je n'ai pas encore pu tester les entrée/sortie TC.

La sortie casque n'est pas assez puissante pour un casque Beyerdynamic DT770 en 250 Ohms, j'en recommande un en 32 Ohms pour voir.

Le rapport qualité prix et vraiment incroyable, dans la pure tradition de Zoom.

Je l'utilise en reportage et en studio avec : Neumann U47, Oktava MK12, Line Audio CM3, Sennheiser AVX, T.Bone BD500, Nux B3 Microphone etc...

Sehr zufrieden, gut verarbeitet, solide.
EDEC, 08.03.2021
Gut verarbeitet und für den Preis kann man da echt nicht meckern. Fürs live Mischen sind die Potis doch ziemlich klein und nahe aneinander und die Pfl Knöpfe der unteren Reihe gefährlich nahe an den Record/Stopp Tasten, wenn man so wie ich gerne oft in die einzelnen Kanäle reinhört. Da ich allerdings nie live mische ist ersteres für mich kein Problem.
Aber davon abgesehen: Hatte mit dem Teil noch nie Probleme, läuft einwandfrei und ganz besonders schätze ich, dass das Gerät zwei SD-Karten Slots hat - wer schon mal nach einer Aufnahme drauf gekommen ist, dass er eine fehlerhafte SD Karte erwischt hat wird das sehr zu schätzen wissen.
Ich würde jedem Besitzer eines Zoom F8n allerdings wärmstens empfehlen, sich noch einen Patona V Mount Akku dazu zu kaufen und die AA-Batterien (immer drin haben aber) eher nur für den Notfall oder den kurzen Dreh zu nutzen denn der Zoom pumpt im Batteriemodus schon extrem viel Saft und für mich war das immer ein latenter Stress, dauernd ein Auge auf den Batteriestand zu halten.
Wenn man sich besagten Akku drantut alles sehr entspannt :)

estremamente funzionale
lichimin, 03.04.2020
Avevo anche il precedente ma ho subito un furto. E'una macchia molto performante paragonabile a concorrenti più costosi. Per ora mi ha permesso di portarmi a casa un sacco di lavori molto bene, la uso per film cortometraggi, ho registrato anche piccoli aventi live senza dovermi portare nien'altro che questo. Faccio campionamenti in ambisonic per le mie library. Insomma per me è un cavallo da battaglia. Comodo anche per gestire gli ascolti per eventuali segretari di edizione e registi e clienti... magari usando l'automix che non è egregio ma per cose al volo va bene, non sostitusce una buona post. Per quel che mi riguarda il limite attuale che ha è avere solo 8 ingressi

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a ‘studio in a box’ replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
