Wow this looks nice, would be a great recorder to go with an NBOX. Wish it also had some sort of digital in, but for that price it looks hard to beat.

yeah its basically a poor man's SPDR, $1000 less

while the SPDR had (non-bit accurate) AES in, and slightly higher mic-power, it could barely power 4061s or CMRs (reduced spec on both), so youre really not missing out on much

but we havent heard it yet. hopefully >120 dB EIN and a half-decent gain stage

$249 is a very aggressive price point.
Looking forward to real world testing and reviews shows up.

PIP is 3.3 V so no good for DPA 406x.  It would be nice to see some specs on the audio side; it concerns me that none of the usual things are listed.

On the plus side, it has a 2800 mAh battery, and an analog limiter.

It is much more than a SPDR! As it has all that wireless capabilities as well.

Plus the SPDR can't be used as a TC box either in a pinch, the Deity can.

yes, much more, but not for 95% of people here who would be using it as a recorder only

yeah the SPDR was also rugged metal case

different market

you could say "our" market doesnt exist. any recorders we buy that are plastic are certainly a cost decision not a end-user design consideration
