A few quick questions -

Deviating just a little -

The mics on the Zooms are XY but the Tascams are spaced a couple of inches apart and face out 180 degrees. There are others that are in-between and I believe the mics on some recorders are adjustable too.

Any comments on how stereo files recorded on these recorders hold up when collapsed to mono? Any phase anomalies?

Are some recorders more susceptible to handling-noise? Any particular models to shy away from?

Do you guys bypass the stock mics and use external mics instead? If so, any recommendations?

Should I shoot for the model with the most internal ram or does it even matter when using external SD cards?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
