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
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
are compositional tools and unnecessary for audio capture.
Be nice to have something lean and powerful that can fit in the back
