I can understand that - the D50 sure was easy to navigate and work with. I just figured paying for something you're not using (ie mics & applicable components) seems unnecessary, is there really no DAP out there that you'd be willing to use, or have you already been through the gamut?
I don't know much about the components in that recorder - I imagine it has a pretty bad-ass DAC if you're that interested...maybe I should go do some reading...
Well best of luck with the comparison - have you already picked up a D100, or is that a future endeavor?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it!
Oh, and I stand by my previous statement: record something :)
