Re: portable hand field recorders

The M-Audio MicroTrack 24/96 comes with a little stereo electret mic but 
you may use aany electret mic that plugs into the 1/8" TRS mic input 
jack.  The mic sounds good but is essentially a spaced omni pair that 
doesn't provide the stereo separation I enjoy with my SONY ECM-MS957.  
It was $300 at most places in 2001 when I bought it to go along with my 
MD recorder.  I paid just under $200  for it but that was hard to find.  
Apparently, you can find it for under $200 these days more easily.  (See 
<http://www.savinglots.com/lotprod.asp?item=ECMMS957> for example.)

No.  But I met a guy who has one and seemed happy with it.  He made some 
stealth recordings at the School of Rock in NYC.  The MicroTrack can't 
do that unless you get a mic that will allow you to hide the unit.  The 
included mic is so small that you'd have to have the entire hand held 
unit in plain sight.
