Not that I condone recording shows or would EVER do it myself, but if you're looking for a decent digital recorder at a decent price for taping shows I just saw this one from B&H for under $70. Faninor would know more about these bad boys than I would but I think something like this would definitely get the job done.

That actually looks pretty similar to the one Josh has. But I think his is a DR-05. I've used the Microtrack and Microtrack II for the last 4 years, and have been happy with them. Edirol's R-09 is also a very popular recorder. The catch with those two are that they will run above $200, but you can sometimes find them on eBay or Craigslist for less.

The other thing to look for is a good set of microphones. The best on a budget mics are probably made by Church Audio. Core Sound makes some great mid price range mics, and DPA, Schoeps, and Sennheiser are on the higher end.

I have a few couple recorders:

Tascam DR-07

Tascam DR-03 + Tascam PR-10.

The smaller models that run off of AAA batteries (DR-03, PR-10, and the DR-08 you linked to) aren't quite as good as the larger models that run off AA batteries (DR-07, DR-07mkII, DR-05). The inputs overload easy -- not ideal for recording concerts but it's possible, and there's a bit more noise in the recordings due to all the electronics being shrunken down and shoved into an even smaller space.

If someone does want to pick up a recorder I'd probably recommend the DR-05 or DR-07mkII as a good choice. B&H has some deals for them too. Oh, and I recommend B&H too, I've bought from them several times. ... gital.html ... Audio.html
