Ultimate field recorder from Sony?

Found this at http://musicthing.blogspot.com/2005/...-sony-pcm.html

Seems Sony wants to be more thant just minidisc fieldrecorders. This is the specs from the press release.

The PCM-D1 features 96K-24 bit recording capability, 4GB internal flash memory, removable Memory Stick Pro high-speed storage and a built-in USB 2.0 port for Macintosh and Windows/PC operating systems.

Additional key features of the PCM-D1 recorder include:

* Built-in condenser microphones in an X - Y configuration with low self-noise, high sensitivity and nearly 30 kHz frequency response
* .WAV recording file format capability
* Analog level meters with LED peak overload indicators
* LCD display with comprehensive recorder status indication and menu selection
* Four AA nickel metal hydride rechargeable batteries and charger (supplied, battery life at 96 kHz of approximately 4.0 hours with rechargeable AA batteries)
* Signal processing functions including SBM, limiter and 200Hz high pass filter
* Weight 18.5 ounces (with batteries)

The Sony PCM-D1 recorder is expected to be available in December at a suggested list price of $2000.

MP3...MP schmree

With all the mp3 players, it's good to see a portable that breaks the 44.1/16 barrier. I like the analog style digial meter on it. I wonder if there is a way to plug my Earthworks qtc omni pair on stands into it. I think I would get tired holding it in the air for a whole concert.
