Premium recordings at high flaws price
Evy09, 16.01.2018
Excellent build quality, it's like a tank. There are really few devices out there with clean and dynamic sound like this guy here.
You can record at 176/88.2 Khz, and this is a plus; sound quality is a premium/zero noise-like; secondly, you get both digital in/out through mini-toslink connector, this sound really good too if you wish using an external converter.
That said, this ain't a flawless device and these are the main ones that you soon pick up at day one:
_High handling noise (this is crucial), handy recorders are called so for a reason and, even if on one side
metal case means more solidity, on the other side of the field you're gonna get a highly self-resonant device.
This is not good. You're warned before shooting the ball here.
_This is already a heavy unit, and you don't even get XLR inputs with Phantom, this neither is good in that external mics means extreme flexibility, and this unit doesn't get this. Think twice.
_Capsules are highly sensitive, a lot condenser-like, but they are fixed: yes, change angle and stuff, but at this point, a couple of standard condenser mics just makes more sense.

A great unit overall, but a lot of stuff to fix on the new lineup.

Very Good
29.08.2016
Its built in microphones are very sensible, so you must learn how to set the recording level appropriately (I use it for field recordings and it is necessary to be aware that louder noises can appear and cause unwanted distortions).

It is necessary to use a stand or anything else that can prevent you from touching directly the device while recording.

The resulting sound is stunning considered the small dimensions of this device.
The noise reduction function (N/R -100 dB), makes it stand out from any of its competitors, that can only record in louder situations, while the PCM 100 can easily record in very low noise environments (the town at night, the countryside, or similar) nearly without preamp noise.

Battery last very long compared to other devices.
The display is bright and can easily switched on and off from a dedicated button. Built solidly.
Very easy to learn and use from the very first time.

The only cons I can mark here is the lack of dedicated jack/LNR inputs (it has a stereo mini jack input only), but to be honest I don't miss it so much.

If you want a very good portable device, this sounds like it's the best device on the market.

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a ‘studio in a box’ replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
