so, after days of scratching my head & trying to work through the issues i'=
d say that all of them except the one with the specific DPA & Telinga mics =
with the R-26 & R-44 have been sorted.

R-26 - its a nice recorder on all other counts, sound wise. The built-in mi=
cs are good for the price & the pre-amps decent too. Its a bit big, but lig=
ht - though a more sturdy construction would have been nicer.

R-44 - again, for the price, & with most mics, I can see why this has been =
a popular entry level 4 channel recorder. Once you get to grips with the se=
nsitivity / gain combo settings the pre-amps are ok.

Most of the issues with audible debris in the signals have been sorted out =
by updating the software, leaving them in 'record' for awhile to let the pr=
e-amps burn in (R-44) etc.

thanks for all the help with the DPA issue - I think it's just that the won=
't work too well with these recorders & there's not much to be done about t=
hat other than putting them through a separate power supply.

so now I can get back to my nice Sound Devices recorder & enjoy its simplic=
ity !
