RE: Alesis Masterlink on Sales via eBay

Not true, I believe they have a gig bag for it, and I bet that you would
find uses for both the CD burner and the modeling tools at some point. For
me, I could see using at a gig and then burning a few copies to sell people
at the end of the evening. Talk about instant gratification for an audience

It probably isn't much bigger than the Marantz, but it looks more like a
table-top solution than a portable solution you can put in its case and
throw over your shoulder. It has the XLR inputs and the compact flash 
which are probably of the top five features I'm looking for.  I guess the
main thing I don't like is all the other stuff it has that I don't reall
want..the effects, the burner, pitch contoller, all the bells and whistles
marketing it as an educational tool, rather than just a plain and simple
digital recorder.

Dimensions of the portable Marantz:

a.. Width............................................................ 10.4
in. (264 mm)
2 in. (55 mm)
a.. Depth.............................................................. 7.3
in. (185 mm)
a.. Weight....................................................... 2 lbs. 14
oz.(1.3 Kg)

Roland CD2 dimensions:

Dimensions W x D x H: 12 x 9-11/16 x 2-15/16 in. (not much bigger)

The Roland is about $695, the Marantz is roughly the same.

This page has these two and a few more for comparison:
