I use a Tascam DR-100 and it is only two track recording but has two
built-in directional mics and two omni (somebody explain why?). They
come in handy for idents but for nothing else. However the XLR inputs
give a good account with my MKH's and also my cheapo Brinibox rig as
the Brinibox gain swamps the mic noise.

I'm saving up for a 4-track Tascam DR-680 which has four inputs but
the R-26 doesn't seem to have this. From what I can see channels
3,4,5&6 come from Hi-Z inputs and the internal mics, none of which I
want to use, so my hopes that it would be a cheaper alternative to the
DR-680 seem dashed.
