I’m not trying to be an equipment review site here but I get asked often enough about types of equipment to use for production, especially audio. Here’s one I’m looking forward to adding to our tool kit. It’s a Marantz PMD620. I got to demo this one at the Podcast & New Media Expo. It’s supposed to be coming out some time in November.
Here at ZimmComm New Media we’ve got a Marantz PMD 660 which is the best you can buy right now but it’s still a large form factor. So you’ve been seeing me with an Edirol R-09 and Cindy with a Zoom H-2. Of course we still have our trusty Sony MZ-B100 too. Pricing should be comparable to the Edirol from what I understand.
You can read more about the new unit on Podcasting News.
