Description Specifications What's in the box
The eye-catching, metal-bodied DM-650 provides fully-fledged professional features for the breathtaking capture of voice and audio in numerous formats - including Linear PCM exceeding CD quality - while also delivering outstanding capabilities for the highest quality and convenient playback of music, audio books and even podcasts.

While the dual stereo microphone setup in the previous models DM-450 / DM-550 facilitated superb true stereo recordings, the incorporation of a third, central microphone takes quality audio capture to another level.

This combination of mics means that recordings - particularly those of the human voice - are even more balanced and life-like, covering a broader spectrum of sound, from low to high frequencies.

The recorder features 4GB Internal memory and a microSD card slot for additional External memory.

Complete with a treasure trove of additional functions like scene modes, low-cut filter or automatic recording all aimed at providing outstanding recording and playback potential for demanding professionals.

Not of of the box yet, but just wanted to say 5 star service received from start of enquiry to receipt of product.  Pleasure dealing with this company.  Hopefully the recorder will provide the same 5 star service.
