Don't buy!! Cannot record long takes!

Carlos24F, 14.09.2018
I bought it because of it's nice set of features, but only after I discovered it cannot record tracks longer than a few minutes. If you try to record a longer track, you get a corrupt, unreadable file.
In some situations, the recorder is able to play the track, but it's not possible to transfer the file to the computer. In other situations, the file is simply corrupt and not even the recorder can play it.
Absolutely worthless!!

Very high audio quality and maximum mobility

FJF , 09.01.2018
I make concert recordings of big choirs with orchestras in churches as a stereo recording with a tuned microphone pair Rode NT5 and have so far carry plenty of equipment: laptop, audio interface Saffire Pro 14, 2x20m microphone cable, cable drum 220V, K & M Percussion table as a table. The times are over now. For comparison, the Marantz PMD-706's built-in microphone preamps perform brilliantly, with highly transparent natural sound and absolute low noise levels with the gain levels Mid (+47 dB) and High (+59 dB). I like it better than the very good Saffire Pro 14. Several gain levels (4 on the PMD-706, Hi plus level +64 dB) with continuously variable trim controls similar to the legendary Neumann V476 B preamps speak for themselves.

In comparison to Zoom F4, I see the following advantages:
1) The PMD-706 has a USB power supply and can therefore be powered with a USB power bank off-grid with 4 microphones with phantom power for many hours. Alternatively, 4 AA batteries are enough for 2 microphones for about 120 min. (The Zoom F4 requires 8 batteries or a power adapter).
2) Both devices can record a safety lane in parallel with lowered levels, with zoom level F4 set to -12 dB (which is far too much for reasonably good modulation), while the PMD-706 is stepless for each channel from -1 to -12 dB can be set (-5 dB are a good compromise).

An 8 GB SD card is included in the delivery and offers space for a recording in dual stereo mode (ie with safety lane) of about 4 hours. A reasonably priced SanDisk 32 GB SDHC card UHS-I with over 16 hours was easily recognized.

The PMD-706 can simply be attached to the bottom of a K & M 238 microphone support rail and with a reducing thread directly on the microphone tripod, so that 2 short microphone cables (2-3m) are sufficient.

Many useful settings such as permanent holding of the peak value, linking of the trim controls as well as phantom power, phase reversal and delay times adjustable for all 6 inputs uvam are available. That the recording format no MP3 conversion is available, for me is not a disadvantage, since I always make high-quality recordings as WAVE 24bit 44,1kHz.

Further advantages of the PMD-706 are the very clear, logical menu guidance, the well-readable display, the good workmanship with valuable feel and not least the interesting price.

In addition to the decisive very good recording quality, the Marantz PMD-706 is a device with the greatest possible mobility and outstanding handling.
