The Zoom H6 is an advanced portable audio recorder. It’s not an update to the Zoom H4n, but rather an entirely different product. Key features include:
Interchangeable X/Y and mid-side stereo mics
Records up to six channels of audio to SD cards
WAV and MP3 file options at a variety of bit rates
Full-color LCD for easy navigation
Interchangeable Microphones. The Zoom H6’s modular approach to sound recording allows you to swap between four different “recording capsules.” This recorder includes both X/Y and the mid-side stereo microphones.
Recording Quality. The H6 records up to six channels of audio to SD cards at greater-than-CD quality (24-bit/96kHz). It also records an additional two safety channels at -12dB lower than set input gain.
Full-Color LCD. The H6 has the most useful display of any recorder we’ve used. The two-inch 320 × 240 screen makes leveling/menu navigation as fast and easy as it should be.
Additional Features. The Zoom operates on four AA batteries (not included), and offers MP3 and WAV recording at a wide variety of bit rates.
Batteries not included. Speaking of batteries:
