Subject: digital recorders

A couple of weeks before the break I posted a message asking for
information about portable digital recorders for phonetic/phonological
fieldwork. Since a couple of people told me that they were interested in
knowing the results of my inquiry, here is a summary of the replies:
 Several people who replied to me recommended Sony recorders, in particular
the TCD-D7 or the TCD-D10. I am told that these machines are somewhat
expensive. It appears that there is a cheaper but still adequate machine
produced by JVC: JVC XD-p1 PRO BK. The Sony mini disc portable recorder
mz-1 was also highly recommended.
Thank you to everyone who replied to me: Maquela Brizuela, Rianne Doeleman,
Hannes Pirker, Ingo Plag, Stephanie Maietta and Alex Francis. (sorry if I
am forgetting someone's name).
