90% running 4v>IPA or Nbox>m10 in my pocket. Thinking of a backup deck, kicking myself in the arse for not grabbing another m10. Not too thrilled with the Roland R05 line in specs, and really not too jazzed up by tascam DR05 or 07. Is there something else out there with M10 dimensions? I know the D100 is bigger due to mics, but If it is a hearable upgrade, I'd be inclined to go that way, since there doesn't seem to be a 4 inch alternative to m10 anyway. Thanks for your opinions!

Check out the Marantz PMD620 MKii.
Not sure where it stacks up compared to the others, but it sounds good to my ears.
And it's about the same size as an M10..  but battery life is not even close..  approx. 5hours on a pair of AA's I think.  But it can run on an external 5v battery with the proper cable.

......it more or less functions like the 661.
.....got a blank space where my mind should be.....

Not sure how noticeable the difference between the Line In on the M10 & D100 is, but the D100 is badass for sure. It does have great specs for a handheld too. Maybe the best handheld specs out there? I just wish it was a little bit cheaper. But IMO, you can't go wrong with the M10 or the D100. The D100 is loaded with options too!

I agree with Bean. The D100 is a fantastic recorder, but you may not hear that much difference if you're recording live bands. The line-in on the M10 is really good.

Perhaps you could still find a used M10 around. Or wait and see what Sony will be doing for a replacement of it.

The Tascam DR-100mk3 is also pretty good at around half the price of the D100.

I'm using it mostly for a series of recordings in the NYC subways with Jonáš Gruska's Elektrouši "mics" with the intent of creating an installation piece from them. Nothing's online at the moment.

Some field recordings here: http://michaelmeyerphoto.com/project/ambients--here-and-there/. Everything since September is with your former d100.
