Great value and features - USB a little limited

QUALITY: Built like a tank - okay just don't drop it and you should be fine. FEATURES: Features are great - best platform there is for mobile recording of live audio events. Can't beat 1/4 inch jack/8 XLRs with phantom power all inputs with compression EQ on every input! USB function is limited (one mono/stereo track at a time), but can be overcome by using WAV-MAKER-1600 software utility which is now available. Bass and drum machines are a definite plus. COSM amp models means you can build a whole gig around this thing and play live without a backing band or extra effects. EASE OF USE: Very easy to use. Recording 1, 2, or 8 tracks couldn't be easier to setup is very easy and intuitive. VALUE: The price is about right - not as expensive as the VS2000 but with a majority of the important features for recording live bands. You can mix and master and produce a CD all on the unit, although I personally use Cakewalk SONAR for that functionality after getting the WAV files off the BR-1600CD SOUND: Sound is great - I love the effects, they are very high quality. Pre-amps are pretty good, just keep single coiled pickups away from the unit and watch your gain settings.

I am glad I finally bought it!

After reading literally hundreds of user's reviews on different brands of multi-track recorders, and over a period of a couple of months, I decided to go with the Boss BR-1600. And I am glad I did! This thing is amazing; Built in drums and bass and more guitar effects than you will ever need.
