So I bit the bullet and dropped the 6 bills (ouch). I'm thinking DSF in the the format I should use? What are you guys finding is the "unity" setting? I use 13 on my R09 and 4.5 on my M10 if that helps.

Looks like this still works. Less than $355 shipped. Normal price is $499, so I guess you're outside the US, M, if you paid $600.

^yep, Canadian here.

The default gain setting is -12dB. I am assuming that this is the unity setting or close to it.

I did a battery test with Duracell alkalines and the recorder shut off at 1h50min (DSDFIFF all other settings off). I turned it back on and got another 10min. I recently bought a smart battery charger, now I just need some reliable high capacity rechargeables. Are the 2000mAh Eneloops the best? What do you guys reccomend?

They are very good, but I switched to the similarly priced 2400 mAh Imedions which seem to be just as reliable with longer run times. There are now 2500 mAh Eneloops, but they cost considerably more than the Imedions.

I would definitely limit myself to low self discharge NiMh's like these. LSD's seem to last longer before needing to be replaced in addition to holding their charge much longer. I just reconditioned my 5 year old Eneloops and 85% of them still tested out at > 2000 mAh.

No independent channel control.

A great deck though,but not easy to find these anymore.
