Portable, Ergonomic User Friendly Design

This handheld recorder includes a built-in stereo condenser microphone array for 'point and shoot recording', and intuitive control surface for single handed operation. This innovative design includes a thumb operated transport wheel and a tactile, red illuminating record button. A high-contrast, low power draw organic LED (OLED) screen provides a vivid display of menus, guiding you to ensure optimum setup and operation for your application of this recorder.

Multiple Recording Possibilities

This Marantz digital recorder comes with multiple record settings, selectable between those for high-quality music recording to extended voice recording. Both SD and SDHC (SD High Capacity) cards are supported, the most stable and commonly available type of flash media. The amount you can record is only limited by the card capacity and nothing else, recording time with a 4 GB card extends from 3 hours 44 mins for stereo PCM at 24-bit at 48 kHz, to 283 hours 44 mins (Almost 12 days!) for mono MP3 at 32 kbps. This recorder also includes a 'SD Card Check' feature meaning you can ensure any SD card compatibility.

Password Protection and File Encryption

Marantz know that security is important, the PMD620 MKII includes new Password protection and File encryption abilities that work hand in hand to keep recordings safe from unauthorized access. MP3 files can be encrypted to .MPS files and WAV files encrypted to .WAS files. Both .MPS and .WAV files utilize a 4 digit password protection feature so that only those with the 4 digit key can open and play the files. This can be done either on the player or in the new and updated PMD Marker Editor software, included in the box.
