Summary: I ordered this to record oboe audition recordings for music school auditions. This recorder is extremely intuitive to operate and has every feature I could ask for. I used an Audio Technica condenser stereo microphone. I love that the Roland R-05 provides switchable phantom mic power. Every feature is well-designed. This is THE digital recorder to get.

Summary: I wasn't sure how I would like this when I bought it, but it's paid for itself many times over. I use it for off-site recordings and to record all podcasts/interviews. I didn't think this would be worth it until I realized 5% (1 of 20!) of my computer-recordings were being scrapped for one reason or another. Since I've had this, I've never had to re-do any recordings - they're just perfection every time! I love it....
