I just add a few dbs in the high to compensate the windscreens. It was outdoor.
Where was the DR05 setup (distance/mic orientation) relative to the band?

The band was in a 200degree circle around the Dr05. The recorder was on a tall, 3m high.
I was at the foot of the tall. The sound was marvellous and the DR05 doesn't give the great immersive listening I had. Because of the omni mics so close, the stereo image is very centred Then I don't know if it's because of the windscreens I adapted on the mics but there is a lot less richness in the sound than the reality and than when I record with my usual setup.

And where was the drummer relative to the DR05? The bass drum sounded close at hand.

I don't know the Yamaha PR7, but here's a recording I made with the DR-05 laid on a table
about 15 feet in front of the band.

It's always in my pocket just in case.

Just a heads-up that the DR-05 has new V2 firmware you'll probably want if you own one.

It allows overdubbing, auto-recording, auto-tone-burst, and some reverbs/rooms that are Bricasti quality. (Kidding re. Bricasti..hehe)

Here's the 05 for $74 (USA)- TASCAM DR-05 Solid State Recorder | Musician's Friend
I agree. I've letter-bombed Tascam and Zoom asking for this this in these handheld devices. TOSlink in them, or even a combo optical i/o in the 1/8" jack would be a golden godsend for me.

That Dr100mk3 looks like a happy little Swiss Army knife, but at that price I'll just start carrying my miniDisc rig again 😜

.05 % THD isn't very good for digital. Most good ADC chips do .001%. 92 db s/n ratio isn't even 16 bits of resolution. It's 15 bits plus noise.

I know you're quite keen of eye, Jim-- so you obviously see that my gushing, unsophisticated tribute to any THD spec that includes a digit with a zero is now 8 years old and counting...
