Well not checked back for about 24 hours and many many thanks for all the r=
eplies and feedback. Only taken a quick look at the DR-60D while I bookmark=
ed it to look at later in the week with the H6 offering.

I appreciate the time you are all taking posting your thoughts and comments=
. As I said the smaller unit the better for carrying with the video kit but=
 won't deny I'm impressed with some of the 'larger' offerings! I have no ti=
me limits and would rather ask from people who know more about the subject =
than just head to a store and buy without research. I used at one time, a n=
umber of years ago, a Marantz CP430 which wasn't a bad unit but technology =
has moved on and my needs have changed also. I have the choice of recording=
 Dolby digital 5.1 and it does add to what is being watched so I would like=
 to use it.

Thanks again all
