Subject: summary: recording equipment

I had sent a query to LINGUIST re recommendable recording and
transcribing equipment for natural conversation. The following people
responded:

Henry Rogers (Toronto)
Margaret Luebs
David Graddol (UK)
Janet Holmes (Wellington, NZ)
Bert Peeters (Hobart, Tasmania)
Celso Alvarez-Caccamo

Most people strongly recommended SONY Professional Walkman WM-DC6 (with
lapel microphone SONY ECM 144, which, however, may not be used for
transcribing).
One person recommended a stereo portable recorder with Dolby
and dbx, namely MARANTZ PMD430 (which seems to be called CP 430 in
Germany, about 1300,- DM). In addition to this recorder, one can use a
Headset microphone TOA HY3 (for constant distance of mouth to microphone).
ANCHOR AN1000X was recommended as an independently powered loudspeaker for
transcription.
One person recommended a query to a different list (LLTI),
which I have not tried yet.

Thank you very much to all who offered their advice. If anyone else wants
to help, please direct your information to the e-mail address given below.
(we have not yet decided what to buy...)
