Hmmm. Size is not 4GiB but maybe 4GB. (4.000.000.000 bytes)
Shutdown is not implying seamless continuation after 4GB.
The MT also had the 4GiB issue....

I personally will NEVER run into this "issue" as I´ll never tape a show that lasts 3h52min AND I never use 48kHz but 44.1kHz.
;)
SO this is not really a big issue for tapers IMHO.
It depends.
When a file can be 2^32 bytes, you want 2^32 and not less.
Also how, what, when and where you record could give you the need for more than 4 hours at 24/48.

Perhaps I am mistaken, but I thought the MT had it's file size issues at 2GB?

For me, the 4 GB limit is fine (and appears to be the WAV format limit anyway).  I will never tape something with sets longer than 3h 52m.  Starting a new file on the 620 can be done with one touch too (three if you count key lock off and key lock back on).

My Marantz PMD620 arrived 10 minutes ago  ;D.
Will run the 24/48 test with the 8GB card later as soon as the 620´s temperature changed from "frozen" to "room" ;).
test is running....


My dear Arni,

Looks great! I'll have mine next week in NY. I'm really looking forward to put my hands on this package.

Thanks for the tests.

regarding dimensions:
it´s 2-3mm shorter than the iriver h120 but a little thicker than a h120.

Can you define where the splits occur?

Could I always split at 2GB or 4GB?

Personally I would want to avoid files that go beyond the WAV spec -

Curious why Marantz would take that approach? - seems like they are just asking for support issues!

In this case I´d press the REC button in between 2 songs or whatever to start a new track as aaron said.

No you can´t define in the presets where to split.
Press REC and it will begin a new file.
BUT you can set the "auto track" funtion and start new files EVERY:
1,5,15 or 30minutes
OR
1,2,6,8,12, or 24 hours.

Has anyone tried to open a 6 GB file in something like CDWave? Will the software load such a file?

hey there is NO 6GB file ;) WAV has its limit at 4GB as mentioned above.

Got that - but  - if understand this thread correctly - the 620 will record files bigger than 4GB...so it does not obey the WAV spec...

So - you CAN have a 6GB Wav file...just wondering what Windows would think of a 6GB wav???

No, the 620 will NOT record files bigger than 4GB(WAV limit) ;), i just ran the test and at ~4GB it shut down.

test-update: my 620 at 24/48 using internal mics and LEDs OFF is at 7 hours recording-time now with 2 rechargeables 2600mAh.
all 3 segments of the battery-power-indicator are still at 100% ;).

49min recording time remaining until the 8GB card is filled with 2  ~4GB files(max. 7h48min on a 8GB sd-hc card at 24/48)

So the statement "The 620 can make very long uninterrupted recordings, restricted only by the size of the recording media. " is erroneous???

Arni - I think you also said something to this effect in an earlier post - hence my confusion...

Great job on the tests, Arni. Keep 'em coming. Here are the things that I'd like to know:

-What is the quality of the internal mics for recording music?
-How high SPL can the internal mics handle before distorting?
-How does the 620 do with external mics without a battery box (mics straight in) with high SPL?
-How does the sound quality compare to the Iriver H1xx?

Thanks!!!!

7h43min at 24/48 with internal mics and NOW the 8GB card is filled 100% AND the 3 segments are still at 100%  ;D.
Will format the card now and restart recording to check when the batteries will die.

after 8 hours recording the 1st segment of the 3 segments disappeared.
