Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOP MARKS TO ZOOM H6 The Zoom H6 so far has performed way beyond expectations - especially playing back on good headphones. I bought it mainly to record various character voices for an animated cartoon for which I wrote the script about 43 years ago. Don't let them tell you I'm not swift off the mark! Seriously, it's a joy to use, and I'll be a long time playing with all its possibilities and items on the menu. I also have a Rode NT USB which also performs exceedingly well. The Zoom's a little less compact in a room wanting of much space. John Straford.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable and great controls Very easy to use and clear labelling. Physical knobs/buttons for each channel is also a bonus and the layout is very intuitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't leave home without it! This thing is brilliant!
I use this for field recording at weddings - I'll usually record a mixer out feed, a couple wireless Lavaliers, and some ambient (with built in mic) all at the same time.
Each track is stored seperately with the option to pair tracks for stereo recording (so 3 stereo tracks or 1 stereo track with 4 mono tracks). It has backup recording on 2 tracks (L+R only) which records a simultanous track at -12dB just incase you clip the master. I wish it had the option to record backup tracks on all 6 channels but its only available on the L-Channel and R-Channel.
Amazing audio quality! Just make sure you use a high speed SD card.
This unit is the single best investment I ever made for production value, I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and service I'm a documentary filmmaker and this product is ideal for conveniently capturing good quality sound using DSLR cameras. My only criticism is that it would be easier to manage if it had a clip to strap it alongside the camera if only using one tripod. That said, not too difficult to coin a solution. Cheers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zoom H6 - As good as they say! Only had this a short while, but as we use our H2 and H4n to record concerts, I have to say the quality of the audio is excellent, with a very clean sound, and (as yet), no distortion.

Very pleased with my purchase, recommend this new Zoom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Indispensable with interchangeable mics Great for ensemble recordings using MS, where a good stereo image is required. I first put the MS through its paces at a wind symphony concert with really good results compared to the spaced omnis on the R09HR. Audio samples of this can be found on Soundcloud (lookup SWS Concert 2013-11-24).

The XY mic capsule is brilliant for field recordings for sound design use, where it's usually single sound sources that are being recorded and at reasonably close proximity.

Also, having the threaded tripod support in the back is a win over the R09HR, as it makes it easy to setup and avoid any handling noise. The included deadcat is great for eliminating wind noise in the field and it all comes packed in a tough handy case, with plenty of room for extra SD cards and a spare pack of batteries.
