In both of those cases, the audio has gone through lossy compression. Depending on what video editors you use, the default settings are not optimized for high quality audio.
I'll throw in a tiny mention of the DJI Pocket 3 video recorder, which can be set to record in wave format rather than embedding lossy AAC in the video file - but the source has to be its built in mics - although the stereo image from the 3 capsules is actually pretty good.

It's going to start shipping next month, BUT they've changed the specs: it will only support 32-bit float in MONO. Stereo is 24 bit only. If the pre-amps are clean, I can still see it being a very good recorder (small, 5V PiP), but the lack of 32-bit float is really disappointing after all this time waiting.

Also battery life: “Stereo: 15hrs (24-bit) with 16GB Card”

This is such a disappointment. I’ve been waiting for this to decide on buying and selling some equipment, and looking forward to a more organised inventory.

My Roland R-07 is better than this, it has the same battery life whilst recording a safety stereo track, which is the next best thing to 32-bit stereo recording. Simultaneous 24-bit stereo recordings, with one a few dB lower, is far more useful than a single mono 32-bit recording.

I have 3 M-10's to wear out first. :lol:

If the PR-2 proves not to be vaporware I'll get one, I suppose...

5V PIP, 24bit, 15hrs on 2 AAs, small device without attached mics.  Still checks a lot of boxes.

Well, it is made with filmmakers in mind who rarely need/use stereo, so not surprising but disappointing never-the-less from my perspective.

I should be hard pressed to buy a stereo non-32bit recorder at this point in time, but if everything else turns out to be perfect, it could be an interesting unit.
Deity products however usually needs a few firmware update iterations before they perform their best, so I don’t recommend being an early adopter - unless that’s your thing.
Roland R-07 -> FEL Communications Clippy EM172 Omnis or pair of RØDE Lavaliers.
iPhone 14 -> Shure MV88 or Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset

32-bit is probably the least appealing feature for me
that interview is... something
its almost as if they dream up all these hypothetical products with feature sets, print cases for them, and dont even design working prototypes until a year later

extra bits wont buy you anything if the preamps are junk... "TDB", as they say.
