H6 Portable Digital Recorder description:

The Zoom H6 Portable Digital Recorder really takes things to the next level by providing multiple inputs and expansion capabilities that allow it to be a versatile tool for portable recording in many applications and settings.

The first notable feature of the Zoom H6 is the capacity to house interchangeable input capsules that provide great solutions for certain situations. With the H6 is included two attachable input capsules, namely the XYH-6 X/Y capsule and the MSH-6 MS capsule. The XYH-6 X/Y capsule provides two high quality unidirectional microphones to ensure great sounding live stereo recordings and the MSH-6 MS (Mid-Side) capsule which allows for the adjustment of the stereo width of recordings, producing superb results which are very useful for film, video and television.

There are also two optional capsules, namely the SGH-6 riding shotgun microphone which provides high grade hyper-directional recording and the EXH-6 Dual XLR/TRS Combo capsule which provides for an additional two inputs. Users will be pleased to know that with the EXH-6 capsule, six tracks can be recorded simultaneously on the H6.

The H6 records 16 – 24-bit / 44.1 – 96 kHz WAV or MP3 formats directly to SD, SDHC and SDXC cards up to 128GB. The useful large LCD display will provide all necessary information, built-in effects like compression and limiting will also prove useful, while other functions like auto-record, pre-record and backup record, amongst others, make this a fully fledged portable digital recorder with expansion capabilities that will ensure its longevity.

Customer Reviews


I've just upgraded from my incredibly overworked H4 recorder, and decided to skip over the H4n for this and my first impressions are that it's much more robust and capable of so much more. The handling noise is still an issue but when you're recording with external microphones that its neither here nor there. The modular capsules feel snug and sturdy. The SD card slot is in such a more convenient place. It feels like a much more capable piece of kit. Was able to get it up and recording within 10 minutes of opening the box. Really pleased with my purchase!

Beautifully built, well featured and easy to use. Really stunned by the audio quality. Comes in useful hard case with batteries, as well as cubase and wave lab! Very pleased I spent a bit of extra money to get something that will be well-used.

Absolutely amazing recording in both mono and stereo.
Mixed output balances like a rack mount mixer costing much much more.
small.light and menu system could be used by a new comer

Great unit, SNR is good for capsules and XLR pre-amps too.

Pretty good build quality so should stand up to a reasonable amount of wear.
