There are very few diffferences between the EH68 and the EH69 other than the phrase save feature. I'm shure that there are others, but I am unaware of them. If the differences lie in the tuner section, it's moot for those in the US because the PAL tuner won't work here.
Region-free players are available from W-I as stated above, and also from B&H and J&R [what's with the initials?]. I would seriously recommend you skip Amazon and go directly to one of these. I have never had a problem with W-I, and I have bought three recorders from them. B&H and J&R are top rated vendors. I would be confident buying from any of them.
If they have used (open box) items, you can usually get a perfect, or near perfect item at a substantially reduced price. These are frequently items that were returned after the owner decideed that they were too complicated to use. That is, there is nothing wrong with them. (J&R has an open box EH69, B&H has listed used an EH59, EH68, and an EH69.)
Evil is charming and beautiful. It makes you doubt yourself. It asks for one small compromise after another until it whittles you down, and it functions best when no one believes in it.-JOA
