I am thinking of buying a nice portable recorder for building up my found sound library. i am wondering though with units such as this and the offerings from yamaha and zoom are these tiny mics that are built in as good as the mics built into larger units like the zoom h4n? do you guys think that will make a large difference in the sound?
