The H2 gives you amazing versatility with its wide variety of recording formats. Choose 24bit/96kHz linear PCM (WAV files) format for the highest audio quality that surpasses CDs. Or record in MP3 format in an almost any bit rate when long recording capability and smaller file sizes are your goals. Even 4-channel, 360Â° recordings can be made in 24bit/48kHz format.In addition, the H2 uses an automated recording function which turns off the recorder if silence is detected. This increases battery life and reduces recording time. The Zoom H2 supports Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) which is the standard used for broadcasting for time and date stamp information along with cue points or markers for starting and stopping. And if that isn’t enough, the H2 connects via USB whereby the digital recorder turns into the perfect USB podcasting microphone. Priced at $199. Continue Reading
Tin Man didn’t make the IXOS Speaker System but he would appreciate it. With 1 inch speakers driving 2W of power the end cap speakers perform surprising well, according to Crave UK.
These sort of speakers often boast convenient size over quality of performance, but the IXOS worked surprisingly well, and live material sounded particularly good. There’s a fair amount of definition in the mids and highs, and although not bursting with power, the lows were clear and well pronounced.
The only gripe we have is the slightly disappointing silver finish of the speakers’ stand and iPod docking mount–it adds a look of cheapness that the system doesn’t deserve.
Run the IXOS iPod Speakers from four AAA batteries, from a USB cable or included AC adapter. Unfortunately the USB cable is for power only and provides no sync ability with the iPod. A line-in connection is available for none iPod folks and supports all the new models as well.
Sale price is about $55
