        Comments about Sony PCM-D1 Digital Field Recorder:

        I've owned dozens of 2 track recorders over the past 40 years and this is the ONLY one that records exactly what I'm hearing when I make the recording.

        this is a fine product...

        Comments about Sony PCM-D1 Digital Field Recorder:

        ... intuitive, right features, and sounds great!I use for recording everything from my fiddle lessons to live accoustic music, which I convert from wav to wma for CDs.Can't think of how I could improve it. Get a little tri-pod for it, adn just sit it on a chair, and you are good-to-go to make superb 2 track accoustic recordings. Imaging is perfect, close your eyes, it is like you are there again. The bass is rich, voices warm and colorful, strings resonate, harmonics retained... amazing flat response, no eq needed.Very easy to use - Used it for a month before looking at manual, and I had little prior experience with live recording. (I dd have hifi and computer exp which helped but was not necessary. Just turn it on and follow the menu...)Sound quality I just cannot understate. Guess you can see I love it... Just wish I had more 4G mem sticks, but dl to laptop is easy too. Buy it if you can. Have fun!
