I have been looking to buy a recorder for a while. Decided to educate myself on these forums first. It seems they have not perfected this technology yet. First I was looking at the new philips recorders dvd r80 specifically but heard poor reviews on philips durability. Then looked into the sony. poor editing capbilities. I dont like the dvd ram so that took panasonic out of the loop. The new pioneer models seem pretty good. I am looking for a recorder to archive my vhs tapes and hi8mm tapes. Also like to record some television . The player needs to play photo cds as well. Has any one heard anything on the new yamaha model DRX-1. Its listed on there web page. Last question is do you think higher end companies like denon will make a recorder soon. thanks for any input.
