Anyone know if the 620 is compatible with OS X?

Has anyone compared the ADC of this to the Edirol R-09 (line in)?

Well since nobody answered I contact marantz pro tech support and here is the answer:

Thank you for your question as far as I am aware both functions are
available on the PMD620
 
Kind regards,

...but I'm not convinced since there is nothing in the manual and whats that " as far as I am aware".
Its a funny answer isn't it?

respect

I think this was asked in another thread, and I also found nothing but a cut and past to new file feature, but no manual mention of repeat.  Sold my modified (MOD-3) PMD-620, so no chance here to see if a 'repeat mode' is indeed buried somewhere.

There is a new firmware update for the PMD620 (http://www.d-mpro.com/users/folder.asp?FolderID=4313&Tab=Overview).  The only description I see is, "Enhances performance & accelerates processing."  Thanks for that expansive explanation!  I am at work, so I can't install it til tonight...Curious what it does! :)

For your first question you have a "skip back" button, but that's not exactly a looper, I don't think you have a loop function on the recorder.

Well, the upgrade went smoothly.  No problems and it worked on the first try.  But I can't see any difference in the menus or anything.  Except that it now says "2.03" instead of "1.00" under firmware version. :)

Maybe they did something to streamline the codec?  I sent a mail to D & M Tech Services asking where I could find out what the improvements are.  I'll let you know if they answer me!

My PMD620 died during the update showing status "complete" but didn´t restart automatically as supposed to.
Now I can´t turn on the unit anymore.
Glad I still have my Sony MZ-RH1 HI-MD recorder as 2nd substitute.

Can you get an exchange under warranty when upgrading the firmware?
