MARANTZ PMD 620 Solid State Digital Recorder - Information

The Marantz PMD620 is a high performance handheld digital recorder that records to SD flashcard media in either PCM (.WAV) or MP3 audio formats. The light weight compact form (just 62 x 102 x 25 mm), ergonomic design and ease of operation recommend the PMD620 to a wide range of users, including journalists, reporters, programme makers, podcasters, musicians and sound recordists everywhere.

Features include an inbuilt stereo condenser microphone array for 'point and shoot recording', and an intuitive control surface for single handed operation, with thumb operated transport wheel and tactile, red illuminating, record button. A high contrast, low power draw organic LED (OLED) screen provides vivid display of menus which guide the user through the optimum set up and operation for their application.

Recording settings are selectable between those for high quality music recording to extended voice recording. The use of SD cards, the most stable and commonly available type of flash media, includes support for SDHC (SD High Capacity) cards, with recording file size limited only by card capacity. Recording time with a 4 GB card extends from 3 hrs 44 mins for stereo PCM at 24-bit / 48 kHz, to 283 hrs 44 mins - almost 12 days - for mono MP3 at 32 kbps.

Journalists and podcasters will appreciate the PMD620's non-destructive onboard editing, with non-destructive cut-and-paste 'Copy Segment' editing to create new sound files. Transcription is simple with the Skip Back function, and file transfers to any computer are drag-and-drop via the USB 2.0 connectivity.
