I am looking for a stand-alone digital recorder that will: (1) handle 24+ continuous hours of stereo recording, from a pair of RCA jacks; (2) cost no more than $350, hopefully a lot less; (3) create 44KHz, 16-bit WAV files that I can edit with Audacity (i.e. - some way to get them into my computer) (4) broadcast quality audio, which lets out most MP3 players, as the last one I tested had only about 40dB Signal to Noise ratio. Other nice to haves: (1) at least one XLR input (2) digital optical input (3) not require four hours to transfer 6 hours of stereo to another partition accessible via USB for transfer to my computer I bought a TASCAM DP01 about 3 years ago, only to learn it could not record more than 12.7 hours continuously. No one at TASCAM could ever tell me why. But I figured it out on my own when Audacity created an 8 hour stereo WAV file with an incorrect File Length Header. Both the Audacity and DP01 problems are caused by the 4GB limit on standard WAV files. The DP01 displays a Memory Poor error message. And Audacity writes out the entire file, but simply creates a File Length Header of the true file size's remainder after dividing by 4GB. I cannot tell if the DP02CF has fixed the 12.7 hour limitation, based on reading the manual and all other material provided on TASCAM's site. I'd be interested in any suggestions. And also recorders you know won't work. For example, used Korg D1200's are affordable, but the manual documents a 12 hour limit. I've also had some trouble determining how large SD or CF cards can be used in some models. Some models that might work, but I cannot find enough info on to be sure are the TASCAM DR-07, DR-1 and DP-004. I wasn't sure what kind of audio quality would be possible with the the V2GO GO-600. I'm even willing to try an MP3 player that can record WAV if the audio quality is good enough.
