Re: [podcasters] Digital Voice Recorders
- I sit corrected, and XLR to 1/8" adapter cables can be found, you just won't
be able to power any mics that require phantom power, which the H4 does do.
I use a Shure PG58 with my H4 and have gotten excellent sound out of the
combination, which should work with the proper cable and the H2. I tend to

a mic that's very proximity sensitive is important to me. The built in mics
on the H4 pick up way too much background noise for my usage.

and it's a great solution for portable recording, especially if you
just need something to throw in your laptop bag "just in case." I
didn't need XLR inputs on the recorder (I've got a mixing board, USB
interface, etc. for that) and just wanted something portable with good
The H2 is also a good option if you want to capture a backup recording
off a mixing board. I use mine as a backup device when I'm recording
into my Mac. I just patch the H2 into an output from the mixing board,
and if something happens to the file on the computer I've got a high
