Samson is announcing an update to their Zoom H4 Handy Recorder. The H4n. It does look a lot nicer than the previous model. It records high-resolution audio at 24bit/96kHz on SD/SDHC media of up to 32GB and is USB 2.0.
I have a Zoom H2 Handy Recorder, which I know is really popular with a lot of people, but I’ve never really liked it all that much. I always found the tiny mono display too hard to see.
