Hello - I just got my new recorder and am very impressed by the functionality. I never had a desire for a dr100 series recorder until this one.
The owners manual is close to worthless though. The menu system is pretty intuitive but there is one setting I don't understand. On the i/o page
there is a selection marked a/d filter. I understand that it is the analog/digital filter. The four selections for that are FIR1, FIR2, SHORT DELAY1 and
SHORT DELAY2. What does this mean and which selection should I use? Thanks for your help.
I got this from a Google translation of the Japanese reference manual, not yet released in English:
