Simply put, the Zoom H6 is the best, most versatile portable recorder you can buy. Sure, it has won a huge pile of awards from a broad array of industries, and those accolades can't be ignored. But just look at this thing—it has 6 built-in inputs (4 of them are hybrid XLR/TRS), the construction is rock-solid and field-ready, and the various recording options are more than most of us will ever use. Whether you're an audio professional or just a band looking to make great live recordings, you cannot do better than the H6.
