The Zoom H2n is an excellent all-round portable audio recorder that captures sound with clarity and definition. Even in the rehearsal room, each element is picked up clearly and you don't have to strain to hear things through distortion and cymbal wash. The five microphone capsules provide solutions for every application and make the H2n a great unit for recording all types of musical performance as well as radio interviews and podcasting. Unlike other portable recorders, the H2n has a large, flat base, so you can sit it on any flat surface without the need for an additional stand, although a tripod stand does come in the H2n accessory pack if the application requires the unit to be mounted and/or tilted towards a source.Enjoy the new standard Representing a new generation of portable recording, the H2n is Zoom's most innovative handheld recorder to date.
