I've heard some real nice 184>mp2 tapes so I'm curious why people don't seem to like this setup.

I haven't heard the mp2, but it might be because there's an extra piece of equipment involved.

Yeah, that's the true... from a purely sound quality perspective the 660 might be best. I'm a little concerned with issues like:

- lack of 24bit
- battery compartment requiring paper shims for proper NiMH contact
- line-in disabled
- level meters which are hard to read outdoors during the day

If anyone can chime in on their experiences with such issues, it would be helpful.

Haven't had much experience with using the xlr's for line input, but one of Doug's goals with the ACM mod was for the 660 to be able to take a board feed.
