I have just ordered this digital voice recorder. It will work with my current XLR mics. It will allow me to use 2 XLR mics attached. It will allow me to take Erk Pod on the road or record an episode without a mixer. It looks pretty sweet! And compared to some other prices I have seen, I have got it at a great price! I should take possession of the recorder mid-week but it is on back order.
