Following a new problem with my DAT TCD-D8, I DCID to change recorder and I chose the Marantz PMD-671.
It's been a few weeks that I use, so I have a bit of Contents to make a review.
In short, the positives: many possible configurations for recording, easy to use protective flap to avoid false manipulations for the sound ... and above all, no more tapes that get stuck, that load poorly, refusing to s'jecter ... for a, is a pleasure (I must say that DAT has made me see all the colors).
Ngatifs points: microphone inputs are too low (S / N 65db) and the device consumes a lot of energy (especially if phantom power is used for microphones). I do not know they have t o look for 6 hours ... even in between line (using a pre-amp collection outdoor) do not count on more than three hours of battery life with 8 LR6. The Ni-nh are highly recommended ...
Another ngatif: the price of compact flash cards is fairly lev. It takes more than 180 euros for a 2GB card (2:50 check-in 16-bit 48khz, WAVE). On the other ct no need either to have 36 cards ... especially if one has a laptop to load. For now I turn with two 2GB cards.
The shell is hard plastic, but it should not be any evidence of robustness.
In conclusion, it is a recorder INTERESTED provided you have a pre-amp quality of collection outdoor (I myself use of the Aeta PSP3), especially if you want to make the decision- the wilderness (in my case) ... The line between (RCA connectors) has an S / N ratio of 95db.
It should also prvoir lot of rechargeable batteries!
