compact flash audio recorders

Playback

First make sure there are batteries is in the recorder, a compact flash card with your recorded audio is inserted into the recorder, headphones are plugged into the recorder and the recorder is turned on (see the set-up instructions).

During playback if you're near a power outlet, you also might use an AC adapter to conserve battery power.

On the Marantz PMD660 recorder, the AC adapter plugs into the right side of the recorder in the DV IN 5V jack.

Then press the play button and the recorder will begin playing the recorded audio. The number of the track the recorder plays will be shown in a display window. When a track has been played to the end, the recorder then will start playing the next track you recorded.

You also will be able to use arrow keys to move from one track to another or to fast forward or fast reverse within a particular track.

On the Marantz PMD660 recorder, to start playback press the Play/Pause button on the top of the recorder. You'll know you're in playback because an arrow will appear in the display window.

When you first press playback, by default it will begin playing the last track you recorded.

To select a different track, press and release one of the double arrow buttons during playback. Repeat the process until you've selected the desired track. That track then will begin playing.

To fast forward or fast reverse within a track, press and hold down one of the double arrow buttons during playback.

To pause the playback, press the Play/Pause button. Two small vertical bars will appear in the display window while you're pausing the playback.

While in pause, you also can use the double arrow buttons to move to other tracks or to fast forward or fast reverse within a track (forward/reverse will be much faster when you've pause the playback, that when you're in playback).

To stop the playback, press the STOP button.

While stopped, you can still use the double arrow buttons to move to other tracks or to fast forward or fast reverse within a track.

Note: If you accidentally press the wrong button and find yourself unable to playback audio, simply press the STOP/CANCEL button. That will return you to the recorder's standard stop mode, without changing any of the recorder settings.

Adjusting Volume During Playback

During playback you can adjust the volume level of the headphones.

On the Marantz PMD660 recorder, you adjust the headphones volume level with the dial on the left side of the recorder labeled HP/SPK VOL. This dial adjusts the volume of the internal speakers if no headphones are plugged into the recorder.

Turning Off the Recorder and

Removing the Compact Flash Card

When you've stopped playback, turn off the recorder and remove the compact flash card.

On the Marantz PMD660 recorder, you turn off the recorder with the POWER switch that's on the right side of the recorder.

To remove the compact flash card, open the door to the compact flash card compartment on the front of the recorder (be sure not to open the door too far). Push the tiny eject button to the right of the card slot and the button should pop out. Then push in the eject button again, grab the card, slide it out of the slot and close the compartment door (if it won't close, check to make sure the eject button is pushed in).
