Best audio recorder - anything close to Sound Devices 702?
I'm a novice filmmaker (one full-length feature, soon to start on next), and I am looking for a very good audio recorder. I currently have the Tascam HD-P2, but it is very insensitive with the mics I use (Schoeps hyper and subcardioids, Sony and Sennheiser shotguns, Shure SM81s). I suppose I could add some preamps, but thinking that an all-in-one good, sturdy recorder would be better. Is there anything out there that's even close to the reported quality of the SD 702? I would also use this for the occasional classical concert.
