Wow! What great sound!

  • Excerpt: After trying several other portable recorders for DSLR filmmaking purposes, I read some very positive reviews of this unit and thought I'd give it a try. I was astounded at the quality of the sound that this little unit produces. It's just great in a very small form factor. Although I settled on another (much more expensive unit) as my primary field recorder I decided to keep this M10 for doing wild tracks and interviews.The Sony pre-amps are just as good and clean as...

All day battery life from two AA cells is amazing.The device is quite compact and well made. The controls are laid out in a fashion that makes them easy to use even without reading the directions.

An excellent purchase

  • Excerpt: We bought two of these several years ago (2011)and have been very pleased. The original use was for taking a line-in feed during dance recitals, weddings, theater and other events. The record time is excellent even just using the built-in memory and the battery life is unbelievable. We literally were able to use the included batteries for about 3 years before the bars went down enough that I replaced them with new ones just to be safe.
  • Pros: Compact Design, High Quality Sound, Long Battery Life, Reliable
  • Cons: No XLR

The Best of the Bunch!

  • Summary: I was at first a bit intimidated by the device but soon overcame it. It is a terrific recording device that is not only very simple to use, but produces amazing sound. I am using the device to record interviews I am conducting and cannot believe the quality and clarity of what I'm getting from it. Plus, downloading the recording to my Mac and burning a CD is a piece of cake.

Replacing HI-MD

  • Excerpt: My minidisc player has finally become unreliable so it's time to trade up. I've used the M10 only a few times to tape live concerts but it has proven to be just as good and better than the minidisc. Solidly built with nice tactile buttons. The quality is great but I'm no expert. One negative, however is the poor editing functions. You have to make the t-marks and THEN go into the menu to actually cut the tracks.
  • Pros: Aa Not Aaa Batteries, Battery life, Easy To Use, Great Screen Backlight, Quality Construction, Sexy, Turkey Flavor
  • Cons: No Editing Beeps, Track Editing

  • Excerpt: I use this for field recording, and capturing things on the fly. It has very low self noise which is pretty important for me, and the built in mics are quite nice. Friends who also use this device have reported it to be pretty rugged after many drops etc. So far Im very pleased with it.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Powerful, Versatile

A great recorder

Mark Rehorst, Amazon
17 July 2014
  • Summary: Great audio quality, great battery life, internal mics are very quiet. I designed and 3D printed a shock mount for it- see http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:384567 The built in mics are too closely spaced for anything like a real stereo image, but they are fine for recording conversations or interviews.
