Hello Forum,
I see many reviewers using , what seems to be the same Portable Audio Recorder.
May I please ask,
What is the company and model number?

Also, what software program are they using?
What is the proper name of that software that displays the Frequency /Db graphs
and other features/functions?
Yes, I am ignorant.
I try to do searches, but, I am ignorant when it comes to the proper terms/names to type in..

    Hello Forum,
    That Portable Recorder is a Zoom H5

    I thought it was a TASCAM ..

    That photo is from seas- lyd's YOU TUBE video.
    I saw the name "Zoom" printed on the recorder in a video he just posted this morning.
    I enjoy seeing his new post of what he has next..

    Thanks for viewing.... :)

    I mean, the Nagras are nice, too -- but the really cool kids use Stellavoxes.

    Hello Guys.. :)

    Here is the screen shots of the first Pink Noise test results.
    I did not set the Volume, so, was a bit loud.
    UMIK-01 MiniDSP Microphone at 40 inch height ( Tweeter level) , where I sit.
    Room is 10 x 15.
    I sit about 4 feet from the back wall.
    Polk A9s about 4 feet from the back wall. 5 feet apart.
    I listen to a Jazz Trio ( Double Bass, Piano,Drums) and set the tone controls to the "Best" settings I heard.
    Then, I do the Pink Noise Test.

    DB is 87 ..
    I am not sure if this is good stats, but, seems level?
    Low frequency is loud, but, that is only those deep Double Bass notes.
    and the Highs are crisp and not "piercing".

    If not the volume level being loud. Seems good, but, is this good ?
    Thanks for viewing..
