Summary: This accurately captures binaural sound just as your own hearing would. The controls are lain out in a way that is easy to comprehend. The sound is top notch. It sounds like you're in a 3d sound environment. There is a mic input as well as a line-in.
Summary: This recorder is very small and is about the size of a thick pack of cigarettes or a couple deck of cards. It records sounds with very high quality. I use mine for podcasting and screencasting. I would buy again if I had to.
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.
