I returned mine to B&H.  I need a six channel recorder, not a four channel recorder with two useless external mics.  If I wanted a four channel recorder I'd use one of my six DR2ds.

3. Inputs - To recap, there's the two detachable mics at the top, 4x xlr/trs combo jacks, and then the 1/8" input on the side. It has an option for routing the inputs to the recording channels. HOWEVER, if you are using the 1/8" input, it bypasses the 3rd + 4th xlr/trs input. There is no way to override the detachable mics input instead. So in effect, this is a recorder that is 4x channel plus 2x mics, not a 6x channel recorder.

Can you afford to stretch your budget to $700 for a Zoom F6?

This looks even worse for the X8:

Weird transient things, no hint what makes them come or go away.

I'm looking to return mine, unless somebody wants to buy mine. Disappointing to say the least. Gonna take that money and buy yet another IEM receiver.

Gulp.  That review kind of skewers it... and the reviewer really did seem to be unhappy that he was having to do so.
