Marantz PMD 620 Oade Mods
« on: September 12, 2019, 05:42:31 PM »
Doug still mods these, but which mod if any would work best with a V2 or are these mods mostly for those who plug mics directly into the unit. Seems like most of the mods are in the mic in section. I will only be using the line in.

The Mods work for Line/Mic. Make sure you confirm that before you spend the money, but I'm pretty sure that's right.
You want to start with a concert mod. best thing ever.
If you are running a specific mic that wants the warm mod, that might be an option, but the concert mod will take whatever you throw at it and make you happy.
this is definitely not normal

I have three warm modded 620s and love them. Unlike the 661 mods, he does also upgrade the line input.

The 661 is line and mic input, too, isn’t it?
I’m sure it is!

On the PMD661:
Mic/Line-In on the XLR's are MOD.
1/8" Line-In 2 is not.
I think.

Exactly!
The little 1/8 inch line in is the only thing not modified. I don't think I've ever used that!

I've never used the 1/8" either..  but if I remember correctly, that is D. Oade's preferred input.  Stock.
If it's not his preferred input, he thinks highly of it.
Kinda crazy.

Yeah he likes it, if I ever run line in again I’ll try it.
