by Neil from FloridaI purchased this unit as a replacement for a similar Tascam recorder. What a difference in quality! The Tascam was difficult to navigate, and the record quality was terrible.

No clipping, EVER even when I forget to lower the manual input levels as the source gets louder... Highly recommended close [-]

by Taimur Khan from Race Course Road, Rawalpindi, PakistanCompared to the Zoom H4n, which I also own and like a lot, the PCM M10 has better built-in mics (handle sibilance very well) and quieter pres, start up time is much faster and battery life is very lon... read more [+]g. Separate line in and mic inputs are also very useful. Omnidirectional mics are a very good idea for such portable recorders as the sound captured is very balanced and placement is not a big problem. The proximity effect is still there so it does record sources closeup very well. Comes with a wired remote. I'm really happy with this purchase. close [-]

Sony does it. again
by Doug Kennedy from Ashland, OregonI'll keep this short. This recorder is outstanding. For field work I use Rode NT4 stereo mics or even the AT822 (older model). What I wanted to emphasize is with significant internal memory and easily... read more [+] added micro sd cards one can record music at obviously high resolution.

Since mp3s are the rage now I wanted to share this. When you acutally record at an mp3 rate directly rather than dither it down from a cd or higher resolution captured source file, you will be amazed at the difference. For instance on a Masterlink if your final master effort is recorded at 16/44 rather than at 24/96 and then dithered down (compressed) to 16/44 when burning a cd you get no perceptible loss of fidelity. Yes the original recording sessions should be at the highest possible (or practical) resolution but when making a final disk try it at its final destination resolution. Ditering down even with exceptional equipment like the Masterlink and its outstanding dithering algorithms can and does often produce artifacts. The same thing holds true for the Sony unit.
If mp3 files are what you want. don't capture cd quality files and have a computer program dither it down to 128 or even 320kbs. Record the source (cd player, even final studio audio recordingetc) directly into the line in at you final desired resolution. I use 320kbs usually but even at 128k you will get recordings that are superior to any downloaded 128 kbs file you get from Itunes or other sources. Don't take my word for it - give it a try. This recorder is absolutely superb both in the field and at making music files you can easily share on the net. For best performance get a good stereo mic. This unit has a mic boost so even most headworn or lav mics work great for certain endeavors. Stereo head worn binaural mics sound incredible as well for b roll/ environmental background sound. Unbelievable in such a small package and as mentioned by nearly everyone I've heard from, or has sritten about this device, the two AA batteriew last longer (much, much longer) than any other device of this type. 24 hours is an understatement.

I plugged a stereo Audio Technica Pro 24 (which actually sounds like crap on any mixer) and it turned out to be really good! Very intuitive, light and portable, solid construction, remote included as well as DC power. You won't be disappointed, you can't go wrong you this little guy. close [-]
