Hey Chad - we have both these units, what do you want to know? :-)

They are different sorts of recorders really. The R26 is a handy recorder,
with its built in mics, whilst obviously the 680 has no mics. you
need internal mics?
Fwiw, the R26 internal mics are decent, but not as good as the Sony D50.
The R26 is a super flexible unit having internal mics (Omni and XY) and XLR
inputs (and you can record all 6 of those channels at once if you want), an=
whilst the preamps are not quite as good as the 680, they are pretty close,
and one of the best handy recorders in terms of preamp noise.
The 680 is certainly aimed at multichannel usage, having 4 XLR inputs, and
can record 8 channels at once (although only 6 discreet inputs).

So...R26 wins on flexibility having internal mics and XLR inputs, the 680
wins on multichannel and slightly better preamps...

Been considering an upgrade on my recorder (ZoomH4 N )  to either a Roland
R26 or a TSCAM DR 680.   At this point I am using various em172's
configurations  with battery box (SASS etc).  Any thoughts on the R26 vs.
DR680 would be appreciated.
