Performance (hopefully) of the PCM-D50, but without the big built in mics? I'm in.

Pretty sweet!

Looks like it lacks the digi-in.

Being smaller a D50 and having a MicroSD slot I think it will give the R-9hr a run for the money!

I wonder how many AA batteries it will take and how long it will run for.

At this webpage,

http://www.mingo-hmw.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=87561

there is a size comparison with the D50:

I wonder why Sony hasn't included the option to record to DSD format in the D50 and new PCM-M10?  Sony themselves developed the DSD audio format, so you'd think they'd support the format in their own portable field recorders.  My Sony PS3 supports playback of DSD audio discs and the VAIO notebook I bought two summers ago includes apps for recording and playback of DSD discs, so it's not like Sony gave up on the format.   I currently use the Korg MR-1 and have been waiting for Korg to come out with a new model with improved battery life and replaces the internal hard drive with flash memory.  If the new Sony PCM-M10 supported DSD format I'd be all over it.

Info with video from NAMM:  http://www.bradlinder.net/2009/07/sony-introduces-pcm-m10-handheld-pro.html

I think I'll hold on to my D50.  This looks like a budget model for the poor musician.

From the link above:

"I'm going to go out on a limb and assume the primary difference between the PCM-D10 and PCM-D50 is that the new model features cheaper mics, preamps, and other components, although it is still made of metal, which makes this recorder more durable than some of the others on the market. The plastic mic jack doesn't look nearly as sturdy on this model as the metal one on the PCM-D50 though."

I'm definitely gonna hold onto my D50 as well.  But I think I'll add one of these to the line-up.  I CAN'T imagine that Sony would skimp on their internal preamp on this model.  I agree the built-in mics probably won't be as good as the D50.  Edit:  It appears to be nearly the exact size of the R-09HR, nice.

While still quite a bit away from shipping (late October?) I think we can count on Sony doing this right with quiet mic input lacking digital noise and fully reliable build.  No info on full features as owners manual is still in-process.  Not looking to be as small as newer R-09HR, but maybe a bit thinner like Olympus LS-10/11.

Like many here I live to know about, bench test, and eventually test drive the newest flash decks coming out.  Especially look forward to this model as Sony rarely disappoints in shipping a fully tested and well engineered deck.

Perhaps this is in essence the "RH-2" - if the preamp is as good as the RH-1, it should be a good replacement for those wanting to come out of MiniDisc but stay with Sony (despite everything...).

This looks pretty good  :)
I see there's a remote input there... I wish they would come up with a remote like the one that was available for pcm-m1, I've missed that!

Dreaming of things, what if one of these companies (sony, edirol, olympus) came up with a really good recorder without mics and just line input, that would be great ;-)

They are designing these things with musicians in mind, not tapers, thus the inclusion of those internal mics.

At least this one doesn't have a roll cage on it.  :yack:

if the pre's are comprable to the d50 and battery life is the same or at least close, i'll add this to the arsenal, and maybe get rid of the d50, which imo is nearly perfect for open taping.

would be perfect with a balanced line in... I need a small deck that can take pro levels.

I hate setting the sax under 20 DB gain to get loud rock shows
