B&H has the Tascam DR-60D 4-channel audio recorder for $199.99 (reg. $349.99). The recorder features dual XLR inputs with 24v and 48v phantom power available. Additionally, B&H includes PluralEyes 3 audio syncing software for free (reg. $179). Check it out here at B&H Photo.
The Tascam iM2X stereo condenser mic for the iPhone is only $39.99 right now at B&H (reg. $79.98). The iM2X records in 16-bit / 44.1 kHz through the free Tascam linear PCM recorder app and supports the iPhone 4, 4S and iPads through the third-gen.
This price has probably dropped due to the new lightning connectors on current iOS devices, but it’s still a solid deal if you are using an iPhone 4S/4 or an prior-gen iPad. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
