One more word about the storage capacity. Over the last year or two, industry-wide specification for higher-capacity SD flash memory has been agreed on, and now memory cards with 4 and 8 GB capacity are being released. The PMD620 will accept both SD memory cards and the SDHC Secure Digital High Capacity cards. Marantz has planned for future growth— the recorder itself is built to be able to write to memory cards of up to 2 Terabytes—2048 GB.

 :o

If memory cards and lossless codecs improve, you could put the entire GD and Phish catalog on this thing.
This is exactly what I want.   A nice handheld recorder that I can throw the entire GD memory card in, and record from some AT853's...
Things are going to get exciting for this hobby I hope...

In the "in-hand" photo, the cable sticking out of the left side of the PMD620 is from mains power.  The 1/8" input for mics and the 1/8" output for headphones are on the top of the recorder.

I'm sure sometime soon the reviews are going to start rolling in on this little unit.  Lets see if it turns out being a winner.

Then hopefully someone will open it up and hack the hell out of it (if needed).  >:D

OK, I couldn't resist.  Call it an early X-mas present to myself!  Martel promises delivery this week...

I won't have a real-world recording opportunity for a couple of weeks.  If anyone can suggest some tests to run, I'd be happy to give it a whirl when it shows up!

Did you look at the audio specs? If they're not on the conservative side we need hacks.

Unlike the Endirol R-09 you can't view record time remaining and record levels on one screen.  Also no lights out operation after a timeout period while recording.  But perhaps the pre-amps and/or internal mics are better, etc....?

Those could be fixed with a software update?

Did you check the specsheet?
