The Zoom H2n

The Zoom H2n

I have the original H2, and it's reliable, easy to navigate (unless you're not tech-savvy). Price is right. One mic can point toward you and one to the person across the table from you. CD-quality sound. Very nice. Plus, with the H2n, people are reporting very long battery life. Even so, I'd change batteries before each interview, or until you get a feel for how long it goes on a set. These are designed for musicians, so they're a giant step up from recorders designed for taking notes. I'm from the old Marantz, Superscope days, when reporters used them almost exclusively, and those were cassettes. We've come a long way, and the prices have plummeted.
