Sound Devices 688 audio recorder

Sound Devices 688

(We'll match any "Free" bag offer - just ask)


If Sound Devices are the greatest rock and roll band in the world then this is their Exile on Main St. The 688 is a digital mixer/recorder that takes all the best features of the 633, the 664 and the 788 and rolls them all very neatly into a new and definitive package.

(The picture above shows the recorder with the optional SL-6 and CL-6)
