I recently purchased a Spire.

Things I like:
-high quality preamps
-easy to just press record and go
-easy to overdub tracks quickly

Things I'm not wild about:
-you need a modern iPhone or iPad to do anything very useful
-exporting tracks to a desktop DAW is far more painful than it needs to be
-why didn't they include a USB port?
-software is clunky for 2019
-the level check feature does not seem to work well going direct

I see it as one big step up from a Zoom-type recorder in that you can do a modest amount of overdubs. For many of us, this feature is worth it.

I purchased it so I could capture ideas, and even multiple tracks, for moving into a DAW. For that it looks like it's a keeper.
