I have the M-Audio MicroTrack 24/94.  It is an outstanding little unit 
but I cannot recommend it for field use because its internal 
rechargeable battery cannot be accessed by the consumer.  The Zoom H4 
seems more suited to the field because it operates on regular batteries 
and I suppose that you may substiture rechargeable batteries.

At a recent concert I gave at the Fiske Planetarium in Boulder, the 
MicroTrack saved our (mind3Spiral) bacon because the CDR recording was 
way overdriven.
