In the past, I got so disgusted with Tascam boards I developed a genuine loathing that I've usually saved for specific junior Marine infractions or senior Marine abuse. The last Tascam board I had was a "studio" board that I literally poured gasoline on and lit a match cackling as it melted. Now I'm poking around the web late last night trying to figure out what I'm going to do if my HD24XR dies (after my recent scare). I find these: Product: HS-8 | TASCAM Product: HS-P82 | TASCAM I don't know prices or anything. I'm having a hard time getting past my Tascam prejudices to even look too hard. Anyone have any idea what kind of quality to expect from brand new alleged flagship gear from Tascam these days?
