Zoom H6 Handheld XLR Recorder Now Shipping

Zoom H6 Recorder

The new Zoom H6 handheld recorder is now shipping.

As you may recall, the Zoom H6 has just about everything the Zoom H4n was missing. It features up to 6 XLR inputs (4 on-board and 2 additional inputs available via an option module) with the ability to record to all 6 simultaneously. The H6 also includes independent gain dials for each channel and a revised display and menu system.

Additional modules allow you to attach a shotgun mic, XY mic or a mid-side mic. It captures up to 24-bit/96kHz audio to SDXC cards.

The Zoom H6 retails for $399.99. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
