There's been more than a few times I wished my Zoom H4n had more than just two XLR inputs. The new Zoom H6 portable digital audio recorder solves this problem and also brings a new modular Microphone design, or the ability to add another dual XLR/TRS input through the top of the recorder.
I'm really hoping this new H6 has better gain than the H4n as well. The H4n was a great recorder, but couldn't provide enough gain on some of my more expensive microphones. The new Zoom H6 was announced a few months ago, but is finally in stock today at (B&H) Click here.

Thanks for the follow up!
@bumpthekoala - Sorry, I don't even have an H6 to test, and the shotgun adapter for the H6 is not yet available.
In your opinion would you go with H6 or a Marantz PMD661 if you were going to use a shotgun mic.
Early whispers from a trusted source suggest it might be prudent to await a serious tech review. H6 might -- repeat Might -- turn out to be a big disappointment.
Woohoo! When are we going to see a review, Emm?
I've gone blue holding my breath for the reviews on this one -- it shouldn't be long now. If the pre-amps live up to billing on this one, it will be a Huge help to low-budget production quality.
