Re: portable audio recorders

I appreciate all the replies. I think I need something with more control 
over input levels, I have never had good luck with auto level and preset 
schemes. I am glad I asked, I will keep my eyes open. Prices are still 
pretty high. Maybe my old Sharp 702 MD will go a bit longer. It is one 
I have bought that I truly have gotten my moneys worth from.
