Works well: 2 problems to watch out for

  • Excerpt: This is a handy unit for recording with phantom powered mics, like a shotgun for interview, or a stereo pair for ambience. One great feature is that you have two batteries-an internal rechargable and a place for AAs. When you receive a new unit, listen to the XLR inputs at high gain.
  • Pros: XLR inputs
  • Cons: 6khz Oscillation

  • Excerpt: does a good job. 2 problems I have: 1. rechargeable batter life is poor. About 4 hours on full charge. 2. the XLR mic level knobs are on the side and they are not the easiest to adjust on the fly.

Great field recorder

  • Excerpt: This is a solid field recorder. It is not intuitive but once you get the hang of it, it is a great value. It is a bit bigger than I would like for carrying around but for the price and quality it really is the best.

  • Excerpt: I'll be using this product to record double system sound for films. Very nice unit with many of the features I will use: high dart rate files, XLR inputs, AC power available. My only negative is that the owners manual is not very clear in some areas, but I was able to figure it all out and I am very...

Solid Broadcast-Quality Recorder

  • Excerpt: Overall, good recorder, with a rechargeable LI battery--which is a huge plus. But, sometimes all the features, buttons, and settings can get in the way in "run-and-gun" type situations. Also, very sensitive to popping-P's, even with windscreens, etc.
  • Pros: Extra Features, Rechargeable Battery
  • Cons: can be complicated to use

Great Recorder Power Button Poor Design

Worni, B&H Photo
30 May 2014
  • Excerpt: This is an excellent hand held field recorder with an easy interface for menu navigation. The quality using the built in mikes is very usable, even better when you plug in external condenser mikes powered using the on board phantom power. We have a dozen of these in the Dept of Cinema at SFSU.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy Menu Navigation, Easy To Use, Versatile
  • Cons: Poor Power Button Design

  • Excerpt: Very pleased with my purchase. Especially compared to the Zoom, definitely grab this piece of equipment. It doesn't have the hiss that the zoom has. Only thing I recommend is make sure you get a good set of sound canceling headphones because at times its hard to distinguish whats being heard...
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Powerful, Versatile
