Don’t see a threat about this little recorder.

Any thoughts about it?

What do you want to know about it?

It's somewhat limited, but I'd say it works well for what it does.

First sold 11 years ago, now discontinued, I believe.  So I would expect its performance to be behind the current crop of pocket recorders.  Quite a few references to it back in the day on this site, according to search results.

Here is a recording I made with the deck:

The deck like many could make a very nice recording in the right scenario and it was very small and thin. I still have it in my travel backpack as a "just in case" carry around, but if I was smart, I'd upgrade to a few other older decks I have. I would not recommend the deck as there just are too many better decks available. It strains if the music is loud too. But in the right environment, you can make it work. This happens to be the only time I ran it without a small preamp like the "Tinybox" or "Church Ugly", because it was a grab fast opportunity to record but it did turn out nicely.

Was able to get one on an auction site for a few euros but it looks very fragile and limited indeed.
