Excellent for it's price

Colm Rogers, 18.05.2018
The Zoom H6 is quite an impressive upgrade from it's previous generations (particularly the H4n and H4n Pro). It is a completely reinvented recorder/mixer and is definitely a go-to for small to mid range budget productions. Here's what I love about the H6:

Pros:
The level adjusting rotars are a very nice inclusion and feel great. It's very handy to be able to have very acurate and precise control over the gain. Furthermore, the inclusion of 4 XLR/Line inputs are a very nice touch! The H6 feels well made and is very well kitted out. The buttons are great quality and responsive. The menu screen is very well laid out and even has compression and EQ adjustments. The battery life is pretty good too - getting up to a decent 18-20 hours using 4 AA batteries. The H6's design is the most impressive feature, which is a great thing. You can really tell a lot of thought went into the design of this product. Nearly everything you could want on a recorder/mixer is on the H6. It's not too heavy, but feels solid and good quality. There is also a minimized chance of dropping the device, with its rubberized finish covering about 70% of the H6. This gives the device a very nice grip and also minimizes noise from handling it.

Cons:
All this said however, it's not perfect. The -20dB pads are not easy to get to, as they're way too close to the rotars. And the pre-amps (although amazing for a hand held recorder) are slightly harsh in my opinion. The compressor, accessible through the virtual menu, is also a little rough and not very easy to get to in a hurry.

Overall, the H6 is no doubt one of the best handheld recorders out there. It's amazing that this thing can handle up to six-track recording simultaneously, along with any kind of microphone from low to high quality dynamics or condensers. And the sound, although a tad bit edgy, is very impressive and is good quality. For short films, broadcast recording and documentaries, it is perfectly ideal and will not disappoint. The H6 is leagues ahead of its predecessors and most handheld recorder/mixers, and is honestly not too far away from the professional range of recorder/mixers. I still bring it on many projects and it's one of my favourite purchases. For it's price and quality, the H6 is terrific value. It comes highly recommended!

Super field recorder and more!

Ian1617, 26.02.2014
I've had my Zoom H6 for around 4 months now. It has been working flawlessly and beyond my expectations.
i use the Zoom H6 both as a field recorder and an I/O device in conjunction with my laptop.
My older equipment included an industry standard CF card recorder and a coveted, but no longer available Filmtek location mixer. My standard microphone is a Neumann RSM 191.
I have used the recorder with this microphone in very diverse situations.
Recording foley for sound tracks reveals how much effort has been put into the completely re-designed microphone pre-amplifiers. I really expected to need an external mixer to get the best out of my lovely microphone, but even in situations where I needed a large amount of gain from the H6 preamps they performed admirably.
Using the device as a sound-card is a doddle. I've engineered several recording sessions with the H6 connected to my laptop. The H6 monitor mixer performs well in this situation and the fact that there is a headphone output and a line output means that it is possible to perform reasonable monitoring functions with ease.
The color LCD display is well thought out and easy to read. The rear panel has a standard 1/2" mount which makes mounting the H6 on a camera rig very easy. Despite the fact that the H6 is a very sturdy device, it is light enough to be stable on a camera rig without adding too much extra weight. On my rig it is attached to a ball head. This way I can adjust the angle to get best view of the display, or I can swing the H6 forward on an arm and use the appropriate microphone to record as I film.
The included microphones are really not to be underrated. The stereo capsule is far more dynamic than I expected and has very acceptable self noise characteristics despite its ability to record very high sound levels with low distortion. It can also be configured at 90 or 120 degrees for a wider stereo image and has a stereo line input on 3.5mm jack.
The mid-side capsule is equally good. If a user is new to using mid-side recording techniques it might be worth pointing out that by virtue of design, even the best mid-side microphones can appear more susceptible to self noise. This is because the side capsule should be recorded at -3dB compared to the front capsule to maintain an accurate stereo image. In these circumstances the mid-side capsule holds up very well. If recording in MS RAW mode it is possible to record the output from the 'Side' element and 'Front' element without processing. This way it is possible to adjust the width of the image on mix-down to get the most appropriate mix. MS recordings are absolutely mono-compatible. This technique is much favored by broadcasters.

In conclusion I have to say that the Zoom H6 easily surpasses my expectations at this price point. It is carefully thought out and designed. It has a very sturdy feel. Operation is logical and straight forward. the included microphones sound great. The feature set is good. I think that this will be a modern classic in its field.
I've also bought the optional EXH-6 unit which provides for 2 more XLR or 1/4" Jack inputs. This is equally as sturdy.
It would be difficult to buy a pair of microphones with the quality of those provided, without spending as much as the entire cost of this product.
In my eyes this is clearly the best unit of it's type at even a much higher price point. Buy it!
