Re: RE:OT the best cheap recording solution
I've been real happy with my Sharp MD 702 or 702. Records well with no
limiting. Has a mic/line input. Halfway decent battery time with an
booster pack. Great editing features. and Cost me about $150 with the $50
buck rebate they gave on it when they were blowing them out 2-3 years ago.
It's also NOT a clamshell design which in my mind seems really fragile and
exposes the internal stuff to possible damage.
