Yes, it is a DP-008. I would not say that it was exactly a choice, a friend who plays and records a lot of bluegrass music sold it to me at a price too good to refuse when he moved up to a 16 track recorder. In truth I have never recorded on more than 2 tracks on it since I began playing around with it. Before purchasing the DP-008 I had a Tascam DR-40 which was already more than adequate, but again the price for the DP-008 was too good and it is easier to use and has a few nice additional features. I am enjoying it, even if it is overkill.
