<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- How long have you use it?</span>
The purchase is trsrcent.

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- What is the particular feature you like best and least?</span>

What I like most:
* The unit is compact without being a minidisc (which I just fled). Let's say he makes 4.
* XLR microphone inputs symtriques.
* The Phantom power supply.
* The guts.
* The clarity of the menu. You'll quickly get the camera in hand.

What I like least:
* The impossibility of recording the del 128 kb / s MP3 Stereo and 64 kb / s mono.
* The lack of digital input / output.
* Transferring files to the PC USB1 instead of USB2 standard. This is the current standard and the product was released in March 2005!
* The impossibility of making a transfer to PC without the power supply sector. Also, forget the combination laptop / PMD660 in the countryside.
* The appearance of the appliance ... ca falls, it is that cass sr.
* The strap comes with the device is really lgre.

No. Just different MDs and Varis.

- How do you report qualitprix?</span>
I am generally satisfied with the machine. I have tested with a micro LEM DO 21 (I use almost exclusively, as part of the job) and a B2Pro Berhinger. I like the resulats from everything I've experienced before with the mini-discs. I think the MD recorders have a hard time shooting the party really DO LEM 21 ... which probably need a good microphone preamplifier.
More prsence, more depth, clarity. It did not see anything.
Unlike the comment above, I must admit I've never boss with Hi-MD, but MD at all. And the PMD660 is doing much better story if I hold the prciser, I'm not in the absolute purity.
And if we talk about transfer and well even in USB1 it's better that the contents of a minidisc that transfer to the PC in real time.
But ... but the price is too lv me, especially as the MP3 compression limit 128Kb / s failure to register that fact that I PCM 44.1.
I use NiMH batteries with 1800 and I think he is greedy.

I wanted to invest in the PMD771 really offering him what I wanted on paper ... but hey, a little excessive in price.
Thus, the PMD should I use ...
For the report, the interview, it's still a great product ... Probably better than the Edirol R1 ...
