    First ever produced Tascam Ministudio Porta One is likely to have serial number? 000001?
    Would be interesting if other owners would post their S/N:s..
    Happy recording!

    I have never seen serial numbers that low and most the time they have date data in them. So unless you have a deck made at the beginning of time they will not be labeled 000001 as that would be before cavemen stereo store.
    On the top section there is a place to insert an image- let me try it-in each case it needs a URL rather than a Jpg file on your computer so you are forced to upload a picture to a cloud or server location.

    I came across a Porta One with S/N 100001, that made me wonder and therefore my question!

    I could not tell you and I don't think there is anyone left that can being the company mainly changed from making good stuff with support to selling Chinese crap with no one around that knows anything.
