Steve, the Fostex FR2 LE in the pictures looksas if it will be no
bigger than the Edirol R1 was.

I must admit to being partial to XLR inputs as they allow of propper
phantom powering and thus a more usable range of high quality
microphones.

No doubt the likes of Niel Yewers will review this recorder very soon
now.

By the way, the edirol accessories, including their own external mic
are very widely available, as are quite a large range of Edirol
accessories.

Brian Hartgen is certainly right to remind us of the PTR2, though tell
me if I'm wrong, but I think the mic. input is mono only?  Must check
that out.

My personal view is that 192Kbs MP3 recording should be good enough
for voice recordings.  Music I'd prefer to record in wav format and,
with card prices having fallen so much, I don't see this as unuly
costly these days.

Cheers,

From Ray

Hi Ray,

It will probably be heavier though, if you start plugging XLRs into
it.
Also it only supports MP3 up to 192.  Why do these manufacturers keep
making
silly compromises like this?  The Edirol supports 320, so it is still
more
flexible in the MP3 department, even though the encoder is not the
best I
have seen.  SWF support is good though, but I wouldn't mind betting
that it
will be more difficult to use than the Edirol.  The nice thing about
the
Edirol is that the menus don't wrap.

All the best

Steve
