Recently a co-worker was searching for an audio recorder to purchase for our new campus. He came across this, and I am very intrigued. Here’s a little bit from the iKey Website:
The RM3 has two 1/4” line inputs on the front to record any vocals or electronic instruments, as well as a combo XLR/1/4″ stereo jack and a stereo RCA input on the rear. It has 2 BALANCED XLR OUTPUTS on the rear panel, and a stereo RCA output for pass-through ability. You can also monitor your media thru the 1/4” phono/line output provided on the front of the RM3, with its own dedicated volume adjustment.
The deck will record on a standard SD card (up to 4 GB) or up to 32 GB with an SDHC card. It will also record on a USB flash drive, which inserts on the front panel next to the SD card.
What gets my attention is this device sells for $199.
