  • Great for recording meetings

    from Best Buy US on April 3, 2019

    Used in recording meetings and it works great. Works better for large meetings if you also connect wired extension table mics (any brand having the proper connector).

  • Excellent

    from Best Buy US on March 7, 2019

    Got this because my old unit was too basic and didn't have any Line/XLR inputs. I'm a huge fan of this, especially the dials for volume control. I feel like I would have gone for the H6 if it was a bit smaller and cheaper, but for what this is I love it and it works super well.

  • Great hand held recorder!

    from Best Buy US on March 3, 2019

    I bought this recorder and it is exactly what I was looking for. I use it for recording with my DSLR and for music recording. It also is perfect for lecture recording.
