    hey,
    i have been recording with a tascam 424 mkII, and im moving up to some digital stuff.
    i was wondering if anyone has any opinions on the fostex MR-8. i have plenty of experience with digital recording, so simplicity is not really an issue, although i've read it is extremely easy to use.
    i have found several decent priced mr-8's on ebay andim considering it but theres just one issue; i read that the mr-8 doesnt have any equalizer. this is pretty surprising to me.

    any comments?
    thanks

    One advantage to it is that its battery powered and uses Flash memory, so it's suitable for remote and/or full motion applications like recording gigs, interviews, random sound effects, etc. This guy sums it up quite well in the end:

    FWIW depending on what you're recording, you can possibly add a small EQ (battery powered also) for like $50-ish and then you have a portable EQ also. :)
