FOSTEX FR-2 FR2 field digital audio recorder hirose & 4pin cables. Compact Flash card NOT INCLUDED. LEDs do not light up. I have two FR-2s for sale. This is the best of the two!Dont underestimate the value of powering via 4pin Hirose. The major annoyance FR-2 users have complained about is the default pole plug working itself loose when in the audio bag. The Hirose plug locks on and you never have to worry again about losing power during a shot! Fostex FR-2 2-track audio recorder. Pole plug to XLR cable. 4pin Hirose to D-tap cable. Can be powered by AA batteries, via. Records to Compact Flash cards (NOT INCLUDED). For one incredibly minor thing. The two LEDs which used to show CF or PCMIA activity are missing. Trust me, you NEVER look at these as the front panel display tells you what is going on with your media. They got knocked off when the technician was re-assembling the unit after installing the 4pin Hirose add-on. IMPORTANT: Do not send power into the unit via both power jacks at the same time!!
