Has anyone found out yet whether the 3.5" E-IDE hard disk can be replaced in the Zoom MRS 1044 by one of a greater capacity?
The price of the Mk.I is bound to drop once the Mk.II hits the streets, and the only difference between the two is the hard disk capacity according to what Hertfordmusic have emailed me.
The MRS 1044 Mk.II is due out now, and Hertfordmusic are quoting a price of £599 pre-order. It would make sense to put the money saved by buying a Mk.I MRS 1044 towards replacing the 15Gb hard disk with a greater capacity hard disk, and putting the 15Gb to use in the computer.
Thanks for all your comments on the Zoom MRS 1044 - you have made my mind up about buying one. I had my eye on a Boss BR-8 until a chap at Turnkey told me they are now discontinued. And not one supplier has replied to my emails about the availability and cost of Zip disks, in spite of the fact that I indicated I would buy a BR-8 from them if the Zip disks were available.
So it's time to Zoom, I think.
