Has the audio quality of the TZ-7 ever been matched/surpassed?

The TZ-7 feels like it came out eons ago now but I still use mine from time to time, although I must say I find the Sony HX5V more flexible (low light modes are great with their multiple shot combination) and I take quite a lot of 3D with the Panasonic 3D1.

One quality that either of these cameras doesn't have though is the audio which is absolutely stunning on the TZ-7, good stereo, depth, warmth, no clipping (event at loud concerts), little wind noise, etc...Has that ever been matched/surpassed by a compact camera? My TZ-7 being the European version is also has that 15 minute clip limit...too bad it couldn't be removed somehow...it would almost be worth it to try to convert it to an pure audio recorder for concerts.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5
