Hi all; this is my first post though I have been following the forum for some time. (Thank you Shawn S for shaming me into registering.) My question has to do with VCD recorders. I am in the market for a CD recorder which my teenage daughter has been bugging me to get for some time. I am debating, though, whether a VCD unit may not be a better choice given my somewhat limited budget, as it will allow video recording (albeit at VHS quality) as well. Ultimately, of course, I would like a DVD recorder, but the prices on these will likely be prohibitive for some time yet. The VCD reorders I have seen so far are the Terapin unit, the Amoisonic VDR 2000, and three units that all seem to be the same: the Likko VDR 2100, the "LKC 210", and the "DVA 2100" which are sold on eBay. I have found reviews of the Terapin unit on line, which are disparaging of its audio quality. (Also, the unit is UGLY!). I have not been able to find any information on the Asian units I listed. Does anyone here have any experience with VCD recorders in terms of their audio recording quality? Should I even be thinking along these lines as compared to a CD recorder alone instead, and wait about two years for DVD recorder prices to plateau? Thanks.
