First portable recorder xlr (Roland R26 vs Zoom H4n/Tascam DR-40)
Hi guys! Want to buy my first recorder to attach a good shotgun mic in the future. I used to work with a H4n wich I like but at teh same time don't (don't like the flatness of his quality and the signal/noise ratio).
The thing is, I have an offer for a used R26 with accesories for 200 euros, and in usedmarket Tascam Dr-40 and Zoom H4n are always very expensive (almost new price) Consider I live in Spain, so that's what I can grab here used.
Do you think the Roland R26 is a steal? Should I just grab a H4n or DR40 for 160 euro? I just want the best preamps>noise/db gain ratio> onboard mics. Tascam DR60 discarded because has no xy mics (unless someone tells something interesting about it)
Greetings and thank you!
