Tascam has improved the original DR-60D with some brand new preamps for smother recording with lower noise and up to 64db of gain.
You can check out our review of the original Tascam DR-60D as well. It is still my recorder of choice although the battery life is an issue for me. However, the original DR-60D arrived with a $349 price tag and the new $199 starting price of the DR-60D MKII makes this an amazing deal for an awesome recorder.
