Uh, looks like it takes CF cards??! and 80 MB is only like 6 minutes of music at PCM rates.

(*1) Compact FlashTM is a registered trademark of SanDisk.
The above table is valid as of February, 2000. Some cards may no longer be produced or sold.
Recording time
Note
• The DN-F20R accesses (reads and writes) large amounts of audio data on the IC memory card in real time.
In order to process this data, the IC memory card itself must offer sufficiently high access speed.
If cards other than Denon IC memory cards or the recommended Compact Flash cards are used, it may happen that the IC memory card’s access speed is too slow, in which case recordings may randomly stop or normal recording may not be possible. Also, the set may not be able to properly identify cards other than the recommended Compact Flash cards.


It is OLD. Amazon says it was first available there in 2014, but I see a review of this deck online from 2002!

"There is no built-in microphone or phantom power on the mic connectors."

This is a 16bit wav recorder that uses CF cards and has 2 slots, one can follow the other or both same time for double backup. I had one of these for a couple months in 2006, and it was terrible about brickwalling the inputs. Even with attenuation and super low gain, transients would "pop" and distort, with levels seemingly fine. I ended up switching to a Marantz PMD-670 after several disappointing attempts with the Denon. It looked cool though......

Brad, the Denon reminds me of a cheaper version of the Marantz 670/671, so its funny you went from one to the other!

I had personally never heard of this deck before today, which is weird, because I keep up on recorders, and have the last 20 years lol!

Yeh, I was bummed that the Denon turned out to be fine for a court reporter, and almost useless for concert recording. The PMD-670 is bigger in every dimension, but it has one big advantage, spdif ins and outs. I went back to using my SBM-1 between the recorder and preamps. My main goal was to move away from DAT to file based recording, and it did the job for 3 years until the PMD-661 came out.
