    Hi All,
    I'm about to purchase a multitrack recorder. I'm leaning towards the Zoom 1608. One other consderation is the Korg 1600, but the Zoom seems to be more in line with the features I will need/want.

    Unfortunately, I have no stores around here where I can touch/look/listen to various machines.
    From what I can gather the Zoom 1608 is suppose to be a more semi-pro piece than their lesser stuff. I heard the sound quality lives up to the other Korg,etc
    I'm not expecting top pro stuff in this price range, but all things considered, I'm trying to do the best I can.

    So my question is:
    How is Zoom equiptment, the 1608 multitrack in particular. Do you think the quality is about par to Korg 1600?
    If I had a Zoom, Korg, Boss, etc machines side by side in a store to pick up and inspect, would I/You (someone who's been around music equiptment, can recognize a good guitar/amp) notice any much difference in quality, would I be saying..."Gee this one looks cheap". or... maybe "yea they all look like they'd hold up ok"

    Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated, thanks johnyy
