A couple nit picks that haven't been mentioned...

Unless it can get power from the USB port, no external ac power jack is downer for festival people, but 15 hour run-time helps ease that concern a little bit.  I like setting and forgetting, so having both batteries and external connected gives me peace of mind in case something happens. 


It's specs state that it can be USB bus-powered.   So hopefully an external USB battery should work with it.

Nice!

Sooo... not all at once - who's pre-ordering?  >:D

Placed my preorder last night. 
The Edirol R-09 is getting old, but after 11 years of stealth recording, I’ll be retiring it to backup recorder.

I still have my minidisc recorder too, but it sits as a paperweight ????

I sincerely hope that mic/aux jack is switchable via internal menu. If you can't switch the mic preamp off and use it as a straight line input, then this device is pretty much useless for tapers. It will overload at lou1d shows.

The specs listed for the MIC/AUX IN jack are nearly identical to the specks for the R-05 MIC IN on high gain. Not good.

Definitely something I'd want clarified before preordering.  I'll be really bummed if they dropped the ball on that point since the recorder otherwise looks pretty good.

When is the Roland R-07 actually going to be in the shops?

Is there an official release date for it?

I hope we will get a proper review earlier than that.
