looks like i'm gonna bite the bullet on Monday and buy an ACM 671.  Payday is Friday, but they are closed.  That will give me 3 weeks to get a couple CF cards.

Yeah, you're right... the first thread had a different name... not Marantz... in the field... should I change it?

We'll be running the same rig... unless you're keeping the w-mod.
My only gripe so far... I wish Doug disabled the on board speaker.

edit: for spelling.

I'm gonna keep the UA5 and run it occasionally.  For the most part though i'll be running AKG 480 (ck61/ck63) > ACM PMD-671.

Me too  ;)
I'm actually entertaining the idea of getting some C-4's again. I see they will be selling hyper-cardioid caps soon. I really liked them when I owned them... and they are so inexpensive.

dunno but the speaker does not bother me... i don't use it at all... but if memory serves, you can remove the cover on the left top (4 screws) and i think you can unplug the speaker that way. i took mine apart when i first got it... that was a while ago, if i get time i will pop the cover and post tomorrow. just unplug the speaker lead and use a small piece of GOOD double stick to glue it somewhere out of the way. and in retrospect, maybe doug should make that an option when he works on them.

that's so you can listen to the show back at the hotel ! 

On the 660 I usually listen to the show on the walk back to the hotel. Then I grab a few beers & head to the car, pull out the old mini to tape cassette converter and listen to it on the car stereo!
A six pack a day, that's all we ask.

For me, I listen on headphones, so esteyes suggestion may work for me.

Well, my transcend 120X 4gb card does not work. I formatted it and all was well. I tried to transfer a dat and it seemed to be fine. When I tried to playback, I got E7. It works fine with the 64 mb card they included. One Kingston 45X comeing right up. Dammit! another week until I can use the thing.
