Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Query:   Dear Phoneticians,

Has anyone used the Edirol R-1 solid state recorder for phonetic work? How
does it fare compared to the new Marantz PMD-670 and PMD-671? Since the
Edirol is much smaller (and cheaper), I am wondering what the trade-off is.

Two practical questions not addressed on the edirol webpage:
1) Can you change the Compact Flash memory card?
2) How easy is it to change the recording settings?

I would appreciate if you could share any fieldwork experiences with these
recorders. If you know of other similar models, I am also interested in
knowing about them.

Edirol R1
Marantz PMD-671

Thanks in advance,
