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?

I’m using a 64 gb card with no problems so far. The manual says “64 GB or more.”

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

it has no digital out.
i was in a rental car this weekend that played flac thru the dash nav when it was plugged into USB, so maybe its possible

Can anyone recommend some products I could use to make almost an "AC" charger for the PCM-A10?  Ideally, I'd like to plug the A10's USB into a female USB long wire, which terminates in a wall plug.  I could then charge by plugging it into the wall.  I see two parts that will do the trick, but I'm not sure how safe the USB to wall charger plugs are.  Would a typical iPhone square wall plug work ok, or do I need to worry about voltage/current for different plugs?

i picked a PCM-A10 up last week and ran it last night >:D. Running front row on the rail and only having to check my smart phone occasionally was very nice.

ran my normal MBHO ka200n > naiant ipa setup with great results. My PCM-M10 is going to be on only open taping duty. If Sony made it so you can control two A10's from the same app my m10 would be in the yard sale tomorrow


My only complaint about the app is the placement of the stop/pause/rec controls at least on an iphone and dealing with the home button

Using a10 line in with external preamp and mics will get me different results compared to an m10?

its a little quieter. may not be noticeable with a hot line-in signal

Did you mean the A10 is quieter?

Thanks, that’s great news because I never found the M10 particularly noisy.

That is pretty disconcerting news.  Were you able to get the A-10 to power back up?

hot licks > microphones > recorder



...ball of confusion, that's what the world is today, hey hey...

Nope, packed up and ready to return as soon as B & H is done
with Passover.
I’m getting another one, I like the size and the phone app. I hate the internal battery
and the internal memory. The USB A sucks and my latest Mac doesn’t recognize as a usb
when plugged in, I have to attach to an older macbook to get files off the internal memory.
