    Very good product ...

    Marantz Professional PMD620Published on 06/08/13 at 02:17
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    For 3 years I use the PMD620, I have had no problems, I use mostly live taken in line to record music from my Korg M50 and sometimes with the internal mics for the live, and never any problem, very easy to handle.
    The only problem I have is that the battery cover will not close, I had to put tape to hold the cover closed ...
    This is my first digital recorder after my recorders K7, but after all the information I could get before you buy, I made my choice on this model seemed rather professional and strong.
    I certainly would resume another Marantz recorder, following the evolution of the technique.

    - How long have you use it?

    3 days, but I've tested a lot of situations (making sounds of voices, moods and natural concerts, internal and external microphones).

    - What is so special that you like most and least?

    The pros: the ridiculous size and weight (a pack of smokes without right angles), the quality of internal microphones and pre-amp (its very accurate dynamic mics which can record both sources of very low rock concerts), metal shell, excellent turn-taking (literally and figuratively), extra-bright screen-super-readable design class more true than the pictures (that sometimes the reverse!), tripod adapter & port to the belt, the little built-in speaker ...

    - How long have you use it?

    3 days, but I've tested a lot of situations (making sounds of voices, moods and natural concerts, internal and external microphones).

    - What is so special that you like most and least?

    The pros: the ridiculous size and weight (a pack of smokes without right angles), the quality of internal microphones and pre-amp (its very accurate dynamic mics which can record both sources of very low rock concerts), metal shell, excellent turn-taking (literally and figuratively), extra-bright screen-super-readable design class more true than the pictures (that sometimes the reverse!), tripod adapter & port to the belt, the little built-in speaker ...

    The -: this blows over a fairly wide spectrum (low-medium) when recording a single sound with internal microphone (spoken voice), no simultaneous display of the level and duration of recording, no button to the low-cut filter, no windscreen wind (but I have a cut to fit the size of the Marantz and it works perfectly), no optional accessories for the moment (bag, bag protection ... But what do they do?).

    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?

    No, but I was able to listen and compare samples of http://www.wingfieldaudio.com/portable-recorder-sound-samples.html
    (Comprehensive information site on all the little portable recorders on the market)
    I also read reviews on specialized sites like www.bradlinder.net or www.transom.org.

    - How would you rate the quality / price?

    Excellent. For € 100 more than the Zoom H2 (with Playback), we have a tool that has better microphones, better preamps, which looks much more solid. The Olympus LS-10 has a lot of advantages on paper, but the sound of the internal microphones seem less linear (with a deficiency in the bass and a spike in media that make it more aggressive). However I would have liked to try the brand new Edirol R-09HR to compare with the sound of the Marantz.

    - With experience, you do again this choice? ...

    If it appears that the Edirol R-09HR has better internal microphones that Marantz620 (as specific but slightly less than breath, it would be the best!), I may have some scruples. But for now I'm already hooked on this pretty toy that has more than enough to establish itself as a classic. No unnecessary or redundant function, everything has been designed to go straight to the point: to record anywhere, anytime, in a timely, efficient and intuitive ... remaining very discreet (internal microphones seem small radio speakers! James Bond, when you hold us ...).

    I have been using today and I dj a lot with the test microphones Intgr.
    Ds that the fate of the paper shows that trs is small, trslger, but solid enough. The faade is aluminum and plastic is strong! Although sr, traps are traps ... So handle with his fingers, but it's the same everywhere, the devices are miniaturized but not my fingers!
    What I like most is the ergonomics: It's really easy to use trs, ds that has the batteries in 5 seconds it is ready to record.

To set the device there is a menu and everything is accessible directly trs clear. In addition, the instructions are printed book as a book in French. Note: there is an update of the firmware (the software that controls the bios of the device in a way) that still amliore prsentation menu. It just uses Defines three profiles with quality diffrent Different.
    There are no unnecessary gadgets like surround sound effects and etc. ... Rglages as basic, but everything is there (limitation of micro, rglage gain, low cut according to the wind)
    The sound is really clear and trs microphones pramplis me and the air quality but I have no other rcente exprience.
    The low-cut filter (low cut) is quite effective on the wind and handling noise but it would be a well liked Windscreen and maybe a little hairy ... accessory prvoir by Marantz.
    Teachers a little something else: the headphone jack is located between the two hair cell microphones, making the cable qe is ride the headphone between the two microphones at all times if you want to do the monitoring while taking sound, which seems to me essential if we want to do a good job given the quality of the microphones. Although sr, if you use an external microphone that remark has no place be. I also think that I will soon buy a small somy ECM DS70 I'm going to put at the end of a cable to have the largest LDC 620 in your pocket for example.
    Before this purchase I had to use as portable magntophones bands. Here we find as good a sound quality with a weight divided by 10 at least! The main positive point is the simplicity of use and versatility: it can either be used as a voice recorder recorder to make sounds in nature: the quality of the microphones can be Intgr TRS honntes made sounds. Madam high-quality MP3 is good and trs appropriate for interviews etc ...
    When autonomy is fabulous, may have taken several hours with a pair of rechargeable NiMH R6 (rglage do think the menu) with a 512 MB card book with it's 30 min max quality MP3 and 6 h in high-stro. In mono, it is double. So that with a 4GB card cheap now, you want hours and hours of recording with a 200 g appereil!
    The report quality price seems right given the trs hardware: it is not a toy!
    I think I do it again this choice for now but I do not have much exprience. I will give more information as I test ds more ...

    I use it for 8 months. This recorder is very convenient. It is very small, lightweight, You Started fast, stops fast, has a very good battery life, uses standard batteries, a few pre-mmorise rglages, and an intuitive interface. It records trs well without ncessaire to settle all the time. The pickups are Intgr prcis and sensitive. Registration is free breath. I use it from time to time with an external microphone connected to a prampli, but more often, I use it as is because that's how it is most convenient to use.

    Three points, however, could be amliors low cost: the loudspeaker should be more efficient, a windscreen and a small pocket of protection should be provided (at least optional…

    The report qualitprix seems very good. This is a purchase that I would do without hsiter.

    Purchased in November 2008, I was looking for a simple, no frills recorder, good quality and versatile recording rpt ', to live with or without table mix, confrence, and interview via external mic or not. I must say that the Marantz has done everything up to my expectancy at.

It can record directly to mp3 qualitpratique good for long rpt '), it also records 24-bit if necessary, it works with standard batteries and has a great autonomy, and so much other stuff that I 'forget (the menu with white letters on black background). In short, it is anything but a gimmick, I think it is extremely well thought out and RALIS for its use.

    The -: may be the lack of Stereo Image, I got too strait. A record mode mp3 320 kps t have a little more too. The headphone intgre between two microphones, one drle IDE! The loudspeaker is a bit limited but important ... RCA output level is just as clear and I find no trs.

    This is an excellent qualitprix, recording / studio pocket that works perfectly, easy to use as a player (record / stop / play) and the height of my expectancy at.
    I waited a year before buying this type of device, and having cum APRS forum, user reviews, and notices, is probably the best in its range.

    I bought this recorder for Pocket catch our live sound and repeated concert.s Before buying this recorder I could compare with the zoom H2 and H4 and listened to the comparative site Thomann.

    Frankly nothing wrong. This highlights the lot is the Marantz is an excellent bass response and ease of use.

    In negative points: the slow transfer of data on the computer and the USB cover seems very fragile. Taking phone in front of microphones is not the best choice. Otherwise, there is a slight hiss when you want to save but a rustling use rock is tip top. I would do this choice with your eyes closed.
