Purchased in late 2012 to replace a Swissonic MDR-2 (which was used to record REPES) ...
I wanted 2 XLR inputs with phantom and a better quality recording. I'm not disappointed at all, it is simple to implement and the S / N ratio is good, except when necessary to push the gain: it blows a little while, without it being unusable.
The phantom is correct and feeds my most consumers easily microphones. I like the XLR, this was the purpose of the purchase, and they are combo XLR-Jack. Possibility to record four channels: two internal and two external.
A very nice feature is the immediate start recording (pre-rec), which does not "miss" the beginning of a decision: it takes 2 seconds BEFORE starting ... formidable!
In short, a very decent quality recorder, ergonomic, full!
