So I bought a A10 and am now realizing that the Sound Organizer software is ONLY useable with Windows and is not compatible with Mac?  What other options exist for editing software?  Thanks.

Audacity is free and very nice.

Doug sent me the specs, after a mod they just blow away the M10 line and mic in. Sound so much better imo. I just don't get running thousands of dollars worh of mics into a cheap stock recorder.

After what mod?

He's referring to a mod the Oade Brothers can do to a Marantz PMD-620

They can do the same mod to the A10 and the PMD-620 but not to the M10?

No, he's talking about the Marantz. As far as I know, they don't mod Sony devices.

There are a few Oade preamp mod m10s out there, but he doesn't advertise it. Love what he does to a Marantz 620. Don't miss an external pre at all. Pick one up for $100 on eBay, send to Doug for $200, and for $300 you've got imo th best small portable you can buy.

I guess I was confused because the thread is about the A10 and I thought that's what was being compared to the M10. I don't doubt Marantz trumps Sony.

I believe that the Oade's have also said that there is no reason to modify the current Sony handhelds.  No room (or not enough to justify a mod) for improvement.

Oade flavor is a personal preference though..

in for an A-10. cant resist trying new gear. :yahoo:

speaking of doug i have been back and forth with him discussing ins and outs of new gear, it really seems like a lot of these components are finally using top-shelf chips in their consumer gear, he liked what he saw in the d:vice at least

The A10 seems to provide 3V plug-in power no matter what. This is actually the same behaviour as the M10. At least my M10 provides 3V even if I answer the Plug-in power question with "No".

About the babynbox, just ask Nick how it behaves when it is fed 3V plug-in power through its output. I have never seen a babynbox in person, but I would expect it to have output capacitors that block all DC voltage and only pass AC voltage (the audio signal). At least that's what I'd do.

just got mine

on mic in, i measure ~2.75V with mic in
if i switch to line in, there is initially voltage, but the resistance of my meter eats up the voltage. im assuming if you never turn on mic in you dont see this voltage

Ah, I probably did not measure it long enough for the voltage to drop. Must be quite the big capacitor, then. ;)

I love the fact that it works as an mp3 player which plays 24bit flac. I know there’s other handhelds that do that, but between its recording, playback, and mass storage features, in that size, it’s something I would always have in my pocket. Good sound and decent output level (at least with my etymotic 4Ps which as on the more sensitive side). Can it use over 32 gb media or are we constrained to sdhc?

Do you use a DAC when you us the A10 for PB?
