    You can record up to 24-bit 24kHz audio onto SD, SDHC or SDXC cards up to 128GB, meaning pro-quality sound - no matter where you are. It even has a built-in screen displaying multi-track recording in real-time, and can be used as a USB interface for your computer or iOS device.

    Better still, the H6 can be expanded to have 6 discrete line/mic-level inputs with an optional EXH-6 capsule. And thanks to overdubs and the ultra-useful auto-record/backup-record functions, you'll be able to nail the perfect take without hassle.

    Excellent sound quality for music. Good microphone included. Shows all subtleties and nuances of piano music - (including unintentional mistakes!). Much improved quality after my old Zoom H2. Well pleased. It would have been even better if a mains adapter was included.
