Excerpt: I'm a director with a tech background who works with professional sound guys. I know they will roll their eyes if they read this but sometimes I need to get sounds on my own after a project is over with and they are gone. It isnt possible to always afford to hire someone just to get a simple sound.
Excerpt: This little black box is wonderful. It is easy to use, versatile, and has excellent fidelity. I use it to augment a Canon 5D III, but it would be just as useful recording musicians in a studio or on stage
Excerpt: It fits nicely into my suit pocket and I tuck the windscreen next to it for quick use. This unit beats carrying around a recorder with a shoulder strap and a separate microphone. The directional mics sound terrific.
Excerpt: I owned the DR-60 and the DR-40 but this one is just perfect for one man band in production. Easy of use, pro level build, build like a thank and great sound quality. Just the best in its class.
Excerpt: This recorder is being used for a podcast. Most of the interviews are done over the phone and we needed a way to send "mix-minus" to the callers. Having the extra line-out on this recorder does exactly that!
Excerpt: While I'm not a complete audio gear expert, I do have very good hearing and I can tell that recording microphones through analog XLR (such as through this recorder) instead of digital USB results in a clearer and warmer sound.
