I don't recall, things get a little blurry as to which list of the many 
and all the posts flying about.

I think the Marantz might have been a bit pricey new for what someone was 
looking for and a bit clunky for portability in terms of field recording 
performance capture).
Battery is a key issue in the field but perhaps not so important 
audio in a club or such that has power outlets.

Bit depth, uncompressed files and overall durability need to be high on 
list for both field and performance work.

So many of the low end and mid range recorders seem to tack on bells and 
whistles such as effects, rhythm loops, scrubbing, punch in/out locators 
etc. that 
are compositional tools and unnecessary for audio capture. 

Be nice to have something lean and powerful that can fit in the back
