Looking at getting something to do some recording. Must be portable, so PC-based solutions would probably not work. Looking for something fairly intuitive that will record at least 8 tracks simultaneously, would like it to have at least 8 XLR inputs so I don't have to fiddle with impedance transformers (I would have to do that if we've got all low z mikes, but the recorder had mostly 1/4" inputs like lots of these units seem to). I'd also like to keep it under $1200. Don't really need a built in drum machine, but a built in CD writer/burner would be great. So far, the Yamaha AW1600 seems to come pretty close. Any others? Anyone have any comments on the Yamaha?
