Zoom H4 specifications

Post by carlmart » Tue Oct 17, 2006 11:54 am

The H4 is already in stock at B&H and I still can't find any specs for it.

That means noise, distortion, dynamic range, etc.

I am really interested in real specs, tested by someone. It's unlikely any of us will have the instruments to get this data.

Will I have to wait until some magazine do such tests. Is that so?

Has anyone actually seen any spec tests?

Check out the H4 info on the Zoom-Japan Product page:

http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/products/h4/index.php

The link next to the "True stereo Imaging" paragraph shows a frequency response graph for the built in mics over a range of 30 to 20KHz. Not the noise & distortion specs you are looking for, but it's something.

Thanks, Davarn and Zoe. Something is something.

We'll have to wait for real numbers to tell the story. Hopefully they won't take long to come by.

But I am also in a hurry to get a portable deck.

Perhaps I should cool down and use my Sony Hi-MD for now, at least until the "H4's dust" settles down and we know what we are getting ins this unit.
