Maybe they will offer some discounted promotional pricing to get units selling like they did with the 70d.

Don't say anything good about my pics … I could feel a motivation to post more. Like this one - showing the SPS200 within the loom. I used the Rycote gag ball for dust protection.

Still waiting your answer...

I don't know if you mean me … I never had a 70d or 60d MKII in my hands … The numbers I see on the 701D are surely not in dB scales and frankly I don't care what they really show - these are just numbers for comparison of the channel input level settings. I want to have the inputs for the four channels of my SPS200 ganged and matched and then I record quite conservative with levels because there are no limiters before the A/D. The levels can be set at an offset and ganged from there.The 701D works very well for me as straightforward stereo or four channel recorder. I really like this little machine - it should have some software improvements: four channel recording without the mixdown going to Ch 5+6 and being always embedded - I delete these channels afterwards to get a four channel interleaved Wave. The ability to route the little bus powered stereo input to channel 5+6 instead of the mixdown would also be nice.

On the 60d or 70d the input gain meter is a little misleading: getting the levels peaking around where the little triangle hashmark is, results in fairly low recordings. It's the same thing on the 701d ?

 I think so … but I like conservative metering - if it is not a very good metering like with the 744T. With 24 bit there is not much to worry about. If you have enough experience with the device and know the behaviour, just turn up the gain a bit …  ;)

Ahh, I love those BBG's! If my Movo screens don't cut it this summer, I'm getting [4] BBG/Windjammers for all my caps :)

Well, I switched from 70D to 701D and I love my decision. Hoever I paid half the retail price for it.

I like the casing, which is a Al/Mg casting, and parts can be replaced easily. Screen has a nice feature, never turning the backlight off totally. It operates in two modes so you can actually see what the thing is recording even during the night, so you dont have to press anything and get pops and clicks into the recording.

Easier to match levels now as faders levels are displayed on the screen. Or assign them to a group and tweak one only.

Can record infrasonic to about 3-4Hz.  Flat @ 10Hz.

The menu is a long list, a bit dumb tho`.
