The French retailer confirms that there is a variety with built-in recording (maybe just a card slot?!).

But to make sense, there should be some LCD or recording interface? Looking at the pics, the metering looks crude with only three LEDs for clipping. Surely, one should expect a more detailed UI if Nagra intends to compete with the other recorders in this price range

having read alot of gear reviews, we might find that the money has gone into the Mic Amps and everything else is designed at budget.

Not sure if Nagra would entertain that philosophy, but I'm sure they'll have felt the pinch from Sound Devices products and they can't be immune to that.

Who knows...

The SD 552 has no LCD and it has internal recording

So to have recording does not require an LCD

Those are LEDs, not an LCD display.

I still can't find a UK listed price for an LB...

£1,600 +VAT - at least that was the 2010 price.

Yeah, I did actually John, and that's what they said...

but in the way that bits of Nagra gear turn up on Italian and French websites for sale from new, there's not much in this country. One mabey if I remember...

John Rudling quoted me Richmond Film Services and HHB as distributors but I don't see the LB listed on their sites, let alone a fractional cost difference between them... It's almost like nobody's really trying to sell it over here...

Mabey that'll change after your forthcoming SOS article...?

Going back to look at this, I just noticed that there was a somewhat better picture on the swedish(?) radio/tv site. One thing that stands out in the picture is that the right side is clean/sealed, so the XLRs would have to sit on the left only, back only, or a combination.

Thing looks ass ugly, but remember that there is tons of ugly gear out there that sounds great.  ;D

I'm not a huge fan of the form factor. Why not have the controls recessed?

I've heard rumors of a grace lunatec v4 where the big new feature is a built in 2 channel recorder. I think I would prefer that over the nagra... feature wise.

I've heard rumors of a grace lunatec v4 where the big new feature is a built in 2 channel recorder. I think I would prefer that over the nagra... feature wise.

I thought that was "Hell Freezes Over" territory according to Grace Design.

I for one am looking forward to this, especially if it's not astronomically expensive.

Is it just me or that look cheap-ass?

no, I somewhat agree, I also agree with the criticism of the recessed controls. The look just reminds me of the 60s, and I guess I'm ok with that. It's how it sounds and ergonomics that matter more to me. The control issue is actually a bigger beef in my eyes from a reliability/safety issue.
