Give your audio a real boost in quality with this portable four-channel unit worth £258/$279

Audio quality can make the difference between a great film and something that just misses the mark. And getting it right can be a tricky technical challenge that many struggle to get right – especially users of DSLR or mirrorless cameras which lack professional audio capabilities.
That’s where the Tascam DR-70D handheld recorder really comes into its own, offering a huge array of pro-level recording options that transform the audio options of any camera.
Four balanced XLR mic inputs with phantom power meet the requirements of production sound, from professional users to indie DSLR shooters.
The compact unit can be mounted above or below a camera, and a pair of built-in mics can capture sound on set. The interface is designed for quick adjustment, with additional features to keep recording levels under control.
The High Definition Discrete Architecture Mic Preamps include 64dB of gain for quiet performances, and all four inputs have individual gain controls. Each input has a limiter and low cut filter available for controlling volume. And there’s Dual Recording mode, which records a safety copy of your audio at a lower level to prevent distorted takes. Tracks are captured to SD card, SDHC or SDXC media.

Question: How many built-in mics does the DR-70D have?
