Dear all:
I have been looking at portable digital recorder to replace my Tascam
DAT portable which has given many good years of service. I have looked
at the Marantz PMD670 and 660 and Edirol R1 and R4. These come close,
but all seem to lack digital inputs. Is there a device with similar
capabilities (solid state, good preamp, SLR connectors, phantom power,
digital audio in/out, USB2.0 or firewire) with digital input also?

Thanks very much,
Richard

Fostex FR2

But what's that RCA jack on the left side of the Edirol R4 that's marked
"Digital Input"?

The PMD 670 has digital I/O. And USB port. My experience
with it is quite positive.
