Zoom R8 End Of Life?

Post by Jim_Fogle » Thu Jun 15, 2017 9:07 pm

I received the Summer 2017 Sweetwater ProGear catalog today. While looking for old favorites I noticed the Zoom R8 is no longer in the catalog even though both the R-16 and R-24 still have catalog space. I also noticed some time back that BestBuy no longer carries the R8 in the store or online. Finally, American Musical Supply and Amazon.com still lists the R8.

I also noticed a high number of bad reviews on Amazon.com due to dead on arrival (DOA), not able to read the SD card or loose parts (handling damage) fresh out of the box.

Maybe they just mistakenly left it out of the catalogue. It is still on the Sweetwater Website:
and on the Zoom website:
