 If you forward it back to the list, it will be distributed without the
 paragraphs above the dashed line.  You may edit the Subject: line and
 the text of the message before forwarding it back; otherwise do not
 modify anything else (that includes the spacing in the headers).
 It is strongly advised that you do not indent the message in any shape or
 form if you decide to forward it back, especially if it is MIME encoded.
 Thus, if your mail program adds ">" (or something similar) in front of
 each line, this will not work correctly.  Please send the message back
 in a way which does not add these characters.  Furthermore, if your
 mail program wraps your reply around into another MIME message, you 
 may run into problems if it modifies the headers that ListProc sent
 along in any shape or form.  the headers shown below that ListProc
 sent should not be augmented or otherwise modified.
 If you edit the messages you receive into a digest, you will need to
 remove these paragraphs and the dashed line before mailing the result
 to the list. Finally, if you need more information from the author of

 Subject: summary of portable hard disk recorders
 MIME-Version: 1.0
 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=windows-1252; format=flowed

 Thanks to everyone that sent along their suggestions and experience
 with various models. Here's a brief summary of what I received. Sorry
 about the long delay for this feedback. Information about specific
 specs on these models can be found at the company's websites.
 Fostex FR-2: Most positive responses about this one--capable of a
 frequency response flat to 80 kHz with a sampling rate of 192 kHz.
 Soon to be included with hydrophones, so one can purchase a complete
 ultrasonic recording system. This appears to be the HDR with the most
 features and best quality for the price--portable, robust, long
 battery life, lots of memory.

 Sound Devices 722 and 744T:
 So far, there?s no field experience with the Sound Devices. I spoke
 with a supplier that has rented them out, and he said that those who
 had rented them (not specifically for field purposes) had no
 difficulties. Their only feedback was that downloading data was slow.
 It also seems to be relatively slow to get hold of one, because
 they?re on back order with a lot of suppliers (some quoted delivery
 dates were up to 2-3 months) although that might have changed in the
 last month or so. Much more expensive than the FD-2 or Courier.

 Sonifex Courier: Used with success many times and good for rough field 
 conditions. One was partially flooded with sea water and still worked 
 properly after a rinse with fresh water.

 Core Sound System: One alternative that was suggested was to put
 together a system using a Mic2496 microphone preamp and A/D converter
 attached to an iRiver portable music player (iRiver HD140). The iRiver
 has an optical input and using the digital output from the Mic2496 it
 is possible to record very high quality16bit/48khz wav files. Using a
 PDA audio CF card (from Core Sound), that preamp can also be attached
 directly to a Hp PDA or laptop and can put the signal in at
 24bit/96kHz.  This was suggested as being a cheaper and more portable
 option, although it might not be suitable in all situations.
