Its onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics are arranged with the right and left mics on the same axis. This design ensures that the mics are always an equal distance from the sound source for perfect localization without phase shifting. Frequency response remains uniform throughout your recording. The result is great stereo recording with natural depth and accurate imaging every time.

Sounds good to me
Great audio recorder12/10/2009
I'm quite impressed with this unit despite its relatively low cost. I'm also happy for the phantom power so that I can use my good Sennheiser microphones with it, although it does reduce battery life. Recommended if you need a good portable audio recorder!
