B&H has the Zoom H4n dual XLR recorder for $169 (reg. $269) in a limited supply at this price. While handheld XLR recorders have moved past the H4n in quality over the past year or two, the H4n is still a solid little recorder – especially at this price. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
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.
