Really to make a new deck like the D10 they covered the important parts, they just failed at other stuff.

Actually, no, they failed at the most important part: the recording quality.

Is that regarding specs or actual sound quality?
Internal mikes??..  Line-in??..  XLR mikes??
Thanks.

According to a reviewer named George Vlad, the preamps are noisier than the D100 and the M10.

"The Sony PCM D10 is rather noisier than the M10 or D100 and has a small bump around 7kHz."

On Gearslutz, he comments on the internal mics and thought they were not as good as the D100.

"the D100 sounds decidedly better and cleaner even if you don't take self-noise into account. If you'll be mainly using the on-board mics, the obvious choice is the D100."

He didn't test the line-in as far as I can see.

But adrianb actually owns one and said: "Bought one, tried it, back in the box. Will be up for sale at some point."

Wow. I didn't know it was that bad. I'll have to read some threads. Biggest problem with the D1 is that it's priced out into obsolescence within 2 years. Memory card is my biggest complaint.


I think he is referring to the D10 not the D1

Yes, I was referring to the D10. Sorry for any confusion.

Did anyone ever have any luck using a larger memory stick than 4GB in the D1? Did it ever work with an 8GB stick?

Since it was Sony, I thought I’d wait for a micro usb adapter but one never materialized.
this is definitely not normal

Ha ha. Years later. No. None of those are right.
As far as I can tell, Sony sticks of 16gb read as if they are 4.
They literally made a recorder that would record huge files and crippled it with a 4gb limitation.
this is definitely not normal
