Welcome to CSR Nation
I just purchased this recorder. It does have the best audio I have ever heard. It is similar to what you get from a good videographer. I have only tested it at home. I will use it at a depo next week. I bought the package w/t the microphones that can be daisy-chained. They have good quality too. I got the microphones for when I cover arbitrations and things are very spread out.
I think I'm going to really like it.
Okay. I've been using this digital recorder as my emergency backup. I just listened to quite a bit of recording on it. The sound quality is amazing. This depo had a pretty loud fan going. The videographer was at the end of the table. He sounds very clear. The attorney was a mush mouth and he sounds very clear. I was sitting right by him and had trouble understanding him.
The doctor was very quiet and the digital recorder did a great job of getting his voice down. The other attorney basically whispered his objections and the recorder got it.
It's well worth the money.
