A professional sound recorder that allows you to control various settings more closely, and has the ability to use a variety of microphones as input, so are better to use if you're looking to capture multiple inputs. Because you can plug in via XLR cables, it is also possible to plug in to AV systems, e.g., to capture good quality audio from talks for example. They are still relatively easy to use - particularly when just using the inbuilt microphone and captures good audio.
Comes with case, SD card, and USB cable.
Requires 4x AA batteries
