Unlimited SD card size
The PMD620 gives you the ability to use unlimited SD card sizes for incredible storage capability. Now your field recordings and live event documentation doesn't have to be a compromise between sound quality and program length.
Internal mic design
Marantz equipped the PMD620 with two ultra-high-quality internal condenser microphones that allow you to capture a 360-degree sound field. This feature is great for conferences and live performances, allowing you to get all the sonic information you need, as well as the "sound of the room" you want. The PMD620 offers up to 24-bit/48kHz recording capability, with three selectable sound quality options, so you can optimize it to your particular application.
Non-destructive "cut-and-paste" editing allows you to create sound files, then use the PMD620's USB 2.0 port to send them directly to your computer with drag-and-drop ease.
Transfer your setup to/from other units
Unit setup can be copied and transferred from one unit to another. When you have many recorders in the field and you want them to be set up with the same settings, this feature allows you to easily set up new recorders without going through each menu. The Marantz PMD620 includes a 512MB SD Card and adapter to mount to mic stand, tripod or belt clip.

by sjk from Grand Rapids, MII agree with the previous reviewer and would add that there is no onboard compressor to deal with sudden loudness like in the Handy Zoom. And the lack of 48v phantom power is definitely a oversight.

Good But not Great .
by Skids from Chicago, IL USAI bought this from Sweetwater when they first came out. I really do like the recorder for quick recording in impromptu situations. It is about the size of the first generation ipod but much lighter. S... read more [+]o light it feels very fragile bordering on chintzy. My main caveat with this machine is that it doen't have standard 48v phantom power. It only has 5v phantom power for small electret microphones. I had to purchase a sound devices MP1 pre amp to power my new Rode NTG3 . with this setup the PMD620 sounds great. Though this set-up isn't the best in portability. especially because of the 1/8 mini connector line and mic ins . If you want a good recorder, that can fit in your shirt pocket, for impromptu field recording than this is a good option. However, if you need better sound quality AND portability , there are better options, Albeit not on this price range. close [-]
