I'd love to be able to compare the H4, the R-9, the Microtracker,
Hi-MD and 722 side by side. We're so heavily invested in Hi-MD
recorders that we're no longer buying test units of other new
recorders that I can borrow to make comparison tests with. For
planned uses of recording ambience in quiet locations, comparison
tests for noise under high gain have been consistently surprising and
I'm a little skeptical that any of the new, <$400USD recorders will
surface as a clear "winner" any time soon because, as we discussed,
the mic pre/ADC of Hi-MD, the Asahi Kasei AK-5356VN-L is a pretty
impressive component in terms of low noise and high gain. Korg,
Zoom, Edirol and M-Audio could very well use a comparable pre/ADC,
but unless someone can speak to this otherwise, hoping a new <$400
recorder will use a better component doesn't have much foundation.
Still, we can at least _hope_ that the new recorders will use a
comparable mic pre while providing better powering for PIP, 48 volts
phantom and balanced line input but these features have also been a
challenge for the manufacturers to provide with high quality
performance at this price point. Rob D.
