"Best Recording Quality I've heard"4.0 starson by mishuga
Pros: Amazing sound, lots of buttons
Cons: input level's inability to be locked by the hold switch, size
Summary: I love this thing. In the right conditions you will produce fantastic recordings. My main beef with it is that the input is set by an input dial, which means that you can't just flip the hold switch, throw it into your pocket and forget about it during a live concert. I know the D50 isn't alone in that respect, but it's just unfortunate because the sound is so damn good. I guess a piece of electrical tape will do, but my R-09 is still my live show recorder of choice. But the D50's quality is that good that I still kept it just to record myself.
