We specifically selected this unit for its reliability and quality of recordings.
The Marantz PMD620 MKII is a high performance handheld digital recorder that records to SD/SDHC flashcard media in either PCM (.WAV) or MP3 audio formats.
Features include an built-in stereo condenser microphone array for ‘point and shoot recording,’ and an intuitive control surface for single handed operation, with thumb operated transport wheel and tactile, red illuminating, record button.
The use of SD cards, the most stable and commonly available type of flash media, includes support for SDHC (SD High Capacity) cards, with recording file size limited only by card capacity. Recording time with a 4 GB card extends from 3 hrs 44 mins for stereo PCM at 24-bit / 48 kHz, to 283 hrs 44 mins – almost 12 days – for mono MP3 at 32 kbps.
And for those users that record sensitive information, the PMD620MKII now features a passcode protect feature for the actual unit so unauthorized users cannot pick up the device and record or playback files of sensitive nature.
