The Tascam HD-P2 recorder is a 2 Channel 24 bit 96khz Compact Flash Hard disk recorder. It has been on the market for about 2 years and I have owned one for about 1.5 years. I don’t use it very often because I do mostly Reality Tv work but it has preformed perfect for me on three film shoots and a few jobs where I was just recording the audio. The unit can be found at most sound retailers for about $1000.00 but you can find them on Ebay for $700.00 which is where I purchased mine. The unit is very powerful the microphone pre amps don’t sound that good but when using it with a line input from my Sound Devices 302 mixers it sounds great. The unit will also accept Tri Level sync timecode with is a plus. It also has SPIDF and RCA inputs and outputs. It is a great recorder for the price if anyone would like to hear some test recordings let me know.

I agree with you, i also recently suggested HD-P2 for the production house i am working for on a feature.
but i found a problem, in transferring the material on a mac-book, even after insatalling the driver i could not transfer from HD-P2 itself, so now i have to use and external card reader to transfer the files.
Have you had the TC option installed? I really want a CF recorder in the aresenal, but right now don’t see enuf use to buy the 702T!! Just wonder how you think this FR2 will hold up to doc and running amok work???
