Thing that bugs me about the boomerang is the low sample rate. Only 16khz!
That means an audio bandwidth of about 6-7khz, probably. Might be ok for an
electric guitar with humbuckers, if you're not very picky. For the half
speed mode it cuts the sample rate in half, meaning about a 3khz bandwidth.
You'd probably notice the poor sound quality if you recorded in that mode,
unless your instrument of choice was a sine wave. For $500 I'd want better
audio quality. These days, the cheapo multimedia audio codecs sound
reasonably good and only cost a manufacturer about $4.
