I'm using Nagra LB for a quite while now.
+ preamps and converters are really really good, I have no problem using it instead or side by side with highend studio stuff, and it's in the rare non-sterile yet natural sounding category
+ very robust build
+ the imporatent stuff is all on knobs and switches
- it drains batteries even when it's in storage... not much, but if I don't use it for some time (months) and forgot to check and recharge the batteries it can even kill them
- menus are ok, though it's more-or-less a 90ties way of thinking about the interface
- secondary display and edit functions (only works with 16bit) seem pointless waste of money
- if the memorycard isn't right for the machine you'll get some clicks and drops in audio and it's hard to know what card will work 100%, there is also internal 2GB memory that is 100% reliable though
Overall I'm glad I bought it and it serves me extremely well. I have no experience with sound devices though. The only other portable recorder I have is Sony D50 which is surprisingly good for gathering FX at times even with the internal mics. Though full nagra/sennheiser mkh/schoeps rig has way more depth, smoothnes and detail to it. The difference is not really obvious for "on my laptops speakers" people and it won't make up for bad mic position, yet it doesn't fall apart in postproduction when you need to push things a bit.
Worth the money (esp. with nowadays exchange rate)? That depends just on you and your preferences.

change wav files for the same sound but with flac codec or for the same sound, but better quality.
No that is not possible.

Found and caught a Ralts! (It took 2 tries with a great ball at full health!)
I would like to solicit readings of a haiku I wrote:
They dug everything
out of the Earth, piled it
on top of itself.
I intend to create a composition by layering/slicing/effecting any recitations I can collect, loosely inspired by aoki takamasa's remix of War and Peace (but probably less dance-oriented).
If you decide to post a recording, please share the link in this thread.
My wife and I have already recorded many different recitations in this freesound pack.
Thanks in advance to anyone who participates!

Is it possible to change the audio file?
I mean for instance to change wav files for the same sound but with flac codec or for the same sound, but better quality.
I recently learned that flac is prefered to wav and I think it'll save about 400MB of space.
