Zoom H6 Recorder

Hi.
Was wondering if anyone on list had a Zoom f6 recorder and if so what do you think?
I still have my Zoom F8N and H6 recorders and I have to admit there are in my opinion a few things that put the F8N and H6 recorders respectively above the Zoom F6, the main being layout of menus and controls.
I’m not at all knocking the F6 as its a beaut little compact recorder with heaps of punch but like everything else the F6 has its flaws so buy carefully if you’re looking at one of these recorders.

Hi Dain. On the RWP list there are like 3 or 4 guys including Neal Ewers and Jonathan Mozen that have 1. Do you have 1? What do you not like about the buttons and menus? I wanted 1 for the PCM 192 KHZ 32 bits floating point WAV. Also it’s an F recorder so I assume it’s got the epic quality sound of the F4 F8 and now before it the F8N. Also the fact it’s got 6 XLRs would make using 6 mics with it for 5.1 surround sound easier than with the H6. Because with the H6 1 would need the EX H6 for starters than a power box to spit phantom at those other 2 mics. If you do have 1 how have you found pairing channals on it? Is it harder than the H6?
