I’ve been tweeting and talking about the Zoom H4n for months now. The more I use this device the more I’m convinced it’s the best device in its class on the market today. I recently purchased four of theses devices for use with the Grove City College Music Department and they are in non-stop demand and getting high praise from both faculty and music majors alike.
If you are in the market for a hand-held recorder, the Zoom H4n deserves your attention and is worthy of a GOOD, HARD LOOK! Here is the link to my article, released today, about the H4n in the latest edition of SoundTree’s SoundWaves.
Please feel free to discuss this device and or others in the comment section below. If you are looking for a recommendation for buying a Zoom H4n Handheld recorder, you have mine.
