Looking for a Roland R88 users review

I was planning to pick Roland R88 mixer/recorder. Still very confused between this and Tascam P82. I am unable to decide between for the cost difference. There arent any users review online. I intend to use it on Production Set for movie rentals. Wouls this be an over kill or kill joy for the work aimed.

Re: Looking for a Roland R88 users review

Not easy to measure. I just bought an R-88 and I can tell you the preamps are really quiet, quieter than my MOTU Travaler mk3 and much quieter than my Tascam DR-70D. What did you get in the end?

Download the manual/specs here: Roland R-88 Manual/Support

As I mentioned the JW Sound group in another post, I recall a few R88 discussions there.
