Okay, I've been sniped out of lawd knows how many recording devices on evilbay, so I'm casting the net a bit wider. I want something compact & reliable really. Been looking at R-09's & Zoom H2N's as those seem to be sturdy looking & smallish, but open to suggestions. I don't care if it's got cosmetic damage, just that it works. Can anyone give me a few pointers please?
