Well, I'm a very satisfy user of the Edirol. There's some drawbacks but for
the price I'm indulgent. 1. There's no xlr inputs only 1/8 inch. 2. The
metering is very very poor (latency and not a lot of precision). 3. It's
plastic made and very light which can be good but a bit fragile.

But mainly the cool thing for me and good advantage over the Marantz is that
it's 24 bits. That's worth it, especially for Soundscapes! But For some
odd reasons it doesn't goes at 48khz.. Only 44.1k.

Au plaisir
