zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: I just purchased this device from zzounds .com. I've been an amateur recording engineer for 20 years. Of all the portable, compact devices I've used, I've never used one as awesome as this, for the size and price. My first quasi pro recorder was a Fostex multitrack tape recorder. I paid exactly $400.00 for it, 20 years ago. It pales in comparison to the Zoom H6. Out of the box, it was up and running - zero learning curve. At this time, I am a film student. I've worked on sets where the Zoom H4N was used. I was amazed by the quality and versatility of that device. When deciding to make my purchase, I compared the H4N with the H6. It was a no brainer. I chose the H6! The spacial sound stage and stereo depth is mind blowing. I ran it as I simply walked around, drove my car, ate dinner at a restaurant, etc. While listening back, I am totally blown away by the clarity and precision of the audio quality. I am 100% confident I made the right choice. I'm giving it 5 stars for the Manufacturer Support, even though I haven't had a need for support. And this is because their support has been evident by their quest for quality, out of the box. BUY IT!!!
Style of Music: Rock, World, Classical, Metal, etc.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: I own the Zoom H4n, and while it is a very capable device, the H6 has marked design improvements. The changeable modules add more mic/input options, and of course having two more tracks to record onto is nice. One great improvement is that they've simplified the recording mode and file system. No more having to choose between STEREO/4-CHANNEL/MULTITRACK mode. Just arm the tracks you want to use, set the levels, and record. The trim pots are real trim pots, and not the up/down button. The unit remembers the date and time even after you remove the batteries - no more resetting that every time you use it! The diaphragms on the X/Y mic set are slightly bigger than the ones on the H4n and I think they capture a little more range. I've been using them as the mics for my drum kit while recording band practice, and the sound is big. I haven't used the M/S capsule yet, but I'm sure it won't disappoint.
