I would just like to start with saying how impressed I am with Charles and his helpful and lenghty notes of the Edirol R-1....

I am doing a project recording spaces and rooms at night, and am looking for a portable digital solution - so the R-1 looks pretty ideal [still big]

Does anyone have any experience with what the quality of hiss is like, or the lack of it hopefully by recording with the inbuilt mics and with an outboard mic/line in option....

how much noise does the unit make when it records silence, empty space....

I saw and listened to the useful recordings made using MP3 192khz compression, but what is it like at 16Bit 44.1Khz?

could anyone post a short recording of nothing somehow....

many thanks
