The Zoom device does just fine and is inexpensive relative to some others. Built-in ability to do 
4-channel surround recording, too.

What's not appropriate for music/singing are the dictation-oriented devices (I've seen these made by 
Sony, Olympus and others).

Lowest price range I've seen for music-quality WAV recording is the Zoom device, in the $200 range

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Looking for Digital Recorder

Good morning.

I'm looking for a small digital recorder that will a good job of capturing the singing voice.  Most 
I've seen are more suited to recording speech.  Any suggestions?  BTW, price *is* an object.

Thanks, Randye
