The Sony PCM-D50 is my new gold standard for portable audio recording with a price less than $500 (well, technically it retails for $600). If you're wondering what it does, and why on earth you would want it, then check out our full review and image gallery.

There's also an action-packed First Look video for the the Sony PCM-D50, featuring Elvis and farting kittens...really.

If you want to hear the PCM-D50 in action, then listen to the latest episode (#90) of the MP3 Insider podcast (recording samples are about halfway through).
