I say go back this weekend when they are busy and try someone else at GC or try a different store. Even though their 15% sale doesn't apply to Korg if they wanted to they could make it happen some how. If that doesn't work then consider the M50 if you want something similar. I haven't played with an M3 but I know Robert Rich has one so it can't be that bad. Also the MR-1 is very cool and is a great sounding recorder. I've wanted its big brother for a while now, hoping maybe next year I'll be able to pick one up.
