Great, high-quality audio recorder

???, 12.10.2017
The mics on this recorder are incredibly sensitive to wind so a windscreen / wind muff is absolutely necessary if you're recording anywhere other than indoors or making recordings that involve moving the device.

Due to the mics' sensitivity, recording anything delicate can be compromised by the minutest of sounds generated by gripping the chassis, therefore I try to avoid touching the device at all during capture. This means that pressing any of the hardware buttons is a very audible event and so you may wish to purchase both the Tascam RC-3F/RC-10 remote and a tripod to combat these issues.

It can be powered via USB so it's ideal for use in conjunction with a power bank or computer. Good battery life. Samples WAV in 44.1, 48.0 and 96.0kHz. MP3 cannot do 96.0kHz. Use BWF MetaEdit to analyse BWF WAV recordings. Updating the firmware resets the capture count: 171012_0000.wav.

Despite not owning any accessories (I did make myself a windscreen however), the device does capture great recordings and there are some workarounds for handling noise such as pressing record a couple seconds before the source material begins, though if you're relying on the pre-recording buffer these noises would be unavoidable.

Sound OK, handling a bit awkward

ruskicar, 14.02.2019
Small portable recorder, nothing special, but does it job as it should (sound quality wise). However, I find the handling and navigating through menus a bit awkward, at least in the beginning. This is my first portable recorder, so I don't know how others perform in that segment. Also, the recorder is very lightweight and combined with plastic housing, I find it very fragile.
I tried to record in both 2 channel (internal mic), and in 4 channel (internal mic + guitar input) mode. Both sound good, but both require a microphone level settings in the beginning. If you don't do that, the mix will not sound very good.
Among effects, there is only a reverb which can be enabled during recording, but I couldn't get the good sounding reverb out of it, even when trying different settings. Maybe I should test some more.
