Maybe sweet ass - don't know if it's a JB3 killer exactly. I bet the price is still >$1k and it only does 24/48 digi in. I think the FR2 does 24/96 no? I guess it is slimmer than the FR2 though - and it seems like there is the possibility to add 24/96 since this is already an option on analog. Regardless a step in the right direction and an improvement over the 670.

I'd guess this is right about $1k, maybe just under.  The 670 goes for $699 brand new, and isn't too much different.  Either way, looks like a nice alternative for folks who don't have the $$ for a 722, but already have a nice pre.

Haven't we known about this for 2 or 3 months? As far as I can see, nothing new. The only real draw back I can see about it is no hard drive, so you still need to get memory cards. So unless you plan on going digi in, it seems to make more sense to get the R4. It will be about the same the price after you get some memory, plus you have a 40GB HD and 4 channels.

Someone posted on another thread that they saw one for $1350... Wouldn't you have to have a 4 channel A/D converter?

I don't think this is correct.  I got a quote on an R-4 that was MUCH higher ($1800) and it was from a reputable dealer.  As for the A/D, most folks I know running more then two mics are mixing to 2-track stereo and running that through their A/D.  That's what I do with my 4 and 6 configs.  Then again, if I had the $$$ to drop on a phatty digital multi-track rig, I'd be there.  What I wouldn't give for a 16 track digital multi-track!!!

That's what I found, $1350.  [Edit - that was edu pricing though]

And yeah, all this stuff has been known about the 671 for a while now.  The only thing that's really still up in the air is the price.

I see that as a positive.  Solid state recording - no worries about vibrations ruining the hard drive.  Only thing you sacrifice is storage space, but prices for flash media are dropping fast.
