_
"The built in condenser microphones are surprisingly good."
_
"The onboard microphones sound great and are super-sensitive but can be adjusted for louder recording sessions."

"Now just a caveat - I'm no professional sound engineer, but there's no extraneous noises, hissing, static or any other type of interference that I can detect."

"That being said the sound quality is great and I found the interface pretty easy to use ."
_
"Really cool little unit with great sound quality , only fault is 2gb card included is filled real quick suggest getting some 16 or 32 gb SDcards with the unit ! "
_
"It does sound great, and is easy to operate, It is rugged and small enough to keep with you on the go."
_
"The sound is clear, full, and in stereo."
_
"This recorder does EXACTLY what I was looking for: with the size of a pocket book, I recorded straight from the mix in a live recording with true good sound with no noise issues, tried some home quiet 1-take recording with the built-in stereo condenser mics with very nice results, and did some multitracking, one take from a guitar amp line out, and other straight from the recorder guitar input -- really good results and true zero lag recording."
