It's a Zoom H2 digital audio recorder. I bought to replace the flaky Sony portable DAT recorder I've had since the 1990's. My idea is to use it at events, conferences, meetings, and of course, Commodore/Amiga functions as a primary or supplementary recording device.
The Zoom had its first test at a concert. I used a 4 gig SDHC card and lithium batteries (for assurance that it wouldn't run out of power). I set it to WAV recording, 48 KHz, 24-bit, rear stereo microphones (which have a 120 degree spread), medium gain, limiter 2 (concert mode). It worked excellently! I was too scared to use WAV recording at 96 KHz, 24-bit, because the instruction manual said that a heavy processing load might cause the sound to cut out. I can't have that! To test this maximum setting, I will have to use it on something less important than a concert.
