The Zoom H6 is a stereo audio recorder ideal for recording interviews, lectures, rehearsals, meetings, and more. This hand-sized unit can record up to 6 channels of audio at greater-than-CD quality. It features onboard true X/Y stereo microphones to pick up clear, natural sound without phase shifting. The mics can be rotated to select a 90° or 120° recording pattern for terrific versatility. The X/Y mic capsule can be removed completely in favor of using the included mid-side stereo capsule, which offers two mic elements: a mid/unidirectional one that faces forward and a bi-directional side-address one positional perpendicularly to the first. The digitally-controlled preamp, combined with these high-quality microphones, allows you to capture Linear PCM audio at rates up to 24-bit/96kHz.

This recorder captures audio to SD cards with capacities up to 32GB (and SDXC up to 128GB). A small-capacity card is included. A 6-in/2-out USB port interface allows you to quickly transfer files to a Mac or PC or use the H6 as a live audio interface. For connecting your own microphones or instruments, the H6 features four XLR/TRS combo input jacks with phantom power and their own preamps with dedicated gain knobs. A 3.5mm line output and reference speaker are built-in for quickly reviewing your recordings.

The unit operates on four standard AA batteries (not included) and offers a backup-record option that tracks a duplicate of the left and right channels. Other useful features of the H6 include graphical VU meters, built-in effects, and onboard MS decoding. The full-color angled LCD screen and intuitive controls are easy to use, even for the recording novice.
