The Zoom H4n Handy Recorder is a palm-sized 4-channel audio recorder with better than CD quality. The H4n features onboard true X/Y stereo microphones to pick up clear, natural sound without phase shifting. The mics can be rotated to select a 90° or 120° recording pattern for terrific versatility. The digitally-controlled preamp, combined with the high-quality microphones, enables capture of Linear PCM audio at rates up to 24-bit/96kHz. The recorder captures audio to SD, or SDHC cards with capacities up to 32GB. A USB 2.0 port allows for quick file transfers to a Mac or PC, or it can be used as a live audio interface.
For connecting microphones or instruments, the H4n features XLR/TRS combo input jacks with phantom capability. A 3.5mm line output is provided, and a reference speaker is built-in for quickly review of recordings. The unit operates on a pair of standard AA batteries, and features a Stamina mode to provide up to 11 hours of continuous recording at 16-bit/44.1kHz.
