By no means would I promote recording concerts, but the H4 Handy Digital Recorder is like a boot leggers’ dream come true.  The digital recorder captures audio at 24-bit/96 kHz or up to 320Kbps in MP3 format.  Additionally it features two studio-quality electret condenser microphones configured in an X/Y pattern for true stereo recording.  To increase memory capacity just slip in an SD card and you’ll nab 4 hours of Jimmy Buffet using just 2 AA batteries.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
