Head's up in case anyone wants to know. The R-07 does not pass most metal detection.

Thanks for that. I've never tried to hide stuff though, just hold it in my hand along with my phone and pretend it's an mp3 player. The R-07 is going to be much easier to bluff with, as it looks a lot more like an mp3 player than the M10.

Having had a couple of hours to play with the R-07 I know I'm going to love the safety track. I was a bit concerned about the minimum level set to 42, but using a selection of CA mics using PIP and a battery box in front of my Hi-Fi speakers with the volume cranked up I had to push the levels up towards 80 to get it peaking, so it's not going to effect me at all.

If the sound quality is just as good as the M10, then this is going to be my go to recorder for stealth.

The only thing I'm missing so far is the green flashing dots on the M10.

it gets noisy above 50 on the levels. if youre running 80 try to get some more output from your source

I'm not going to be running it remotely near to 80. What I was trying to say is I was concerned that when running dual WAV to get a safety track, the R-07 sets the lowest level at 42 and this might be too high. On testing it in front of my speakers set to high volume, I don't think it's going to be a problem for me with a battery box since I'm going to be operating at levels between 42-60. It might be an issue for those that want to use a preamp in front of the R-07.

I haven't tested the R-07 in the real world yet, but I reckon it's now going to be my stealth unit CA mics > battery box > R-07.

If stealth is not such an issue I might go with CA mics > CA preamp > M10.

Used my R-07 at a nightclub last night for a No Doubt Tribute show featuring a bunch of local musicians. Tried out a board feed with the recorder.

This is 48.kHz, 24-bit,  limiter on, and input level at 1... That's right... ONE...

This is the wav file uploaded straight to Soundcloud after I got home...

I also recorded the opening band and had the levels set to around 10.

Another thing I can confirm and also really disappoints me... The Bluetooth SUUUUCCKS! I rested the recorder beside the soundboard and the board is surrounded by a wood structure in the middle of the nightclub. I paired the recorder with my phone to test and the once I walked away barely 8 feet, the connection dies. This was supposed to be a recorder I could monitor and hit record from the photo pit (I'm also a photographer).

thats a bummer with the bluetooth but its awesome to know it can take a board feed that hot and not brickwall the input

If you got away with a board feed to a R-07 without attenuators you were lucky  or getting the feed from RCA outs, etc.

Really thanks! To much noise in the R-07, no?

I would say so, especially for quieter scenes. That's why I have always loved my Sony units.

I expect the R-07 is going to be my go too unit for >:D recording concerts though.

I'd say the sound of the Sennheisers at the end blows the others away, if only in terms of the stereo image which is dramatically better than the small recorders.

That setup does cost 13 times more than the R-07 and M10 though. For me the step change in quality comes with the D100.
