Does the Zoom H4 make higher-quality recordings than the new Zoom H2? Help!

The newer H2 does some nice recordings but I would stick with the higher priced, older H4 simply because of the on board XLR inputs.

If the XLR jacks are not important for you go with the H2 at a lower price as it works just fine.

I have not tried both in person but I'm sure they both record very well for the price.

I wound up sending back two H2s ... now I have an H4 on order, hoping for better luck.

My H2 doesn't have any problem.

If you want to record your piano only with built-in microphones, then H2 is a better choice.
