Really nice. Several can be daisy-chained through HDMI for higher channel counts, good. Hope the preamps are better though. My DR-70D is all right especially if used with high output microphones but my MOTU Traveler mk3 and Roland R-88 preamps are far quieter.

In such a small form factor it is probably not easy to cram 4 preamps together will all the other electronics, noise will not only be generated in the op-amp chips but will also be coming from nearby circuits.

Re: Tascam DR701D With HDMI trigger, no more pressing rec twice!

If you need "pro" preamps, you are not going to get a "recorder + pro preamp" for under $3K (ie. Sound Devices). This is a GREAT unit as a bit dumper. Use pro preamps in front of it when needed. When you don't need pro preamps, use the ones included. A pro portable 2 channel preamp is going to cost you $1K alone.

Mics and preamps cost money.. the bit recorder is the cheap part. This does 4 channels at 24/192. And has nice level meters. Also has a 5/6 channel mixdown.. onto easy to move around SD cards.

I wish they would take out those crappy internal front mics and make the unit smaller.

Absolutely. Never gonna use those mics. I'd trade them any day for better micpres. Or... for lower prices. But I really don't want the built in mics. For anything.
