When recording for extended periods, or using this unit in a studio environment, we recommend using the AC adaptor.
to AC outlet
Rechargeable NiCd Battery Pack (optional)
The PMD650 can also use an optional NiCd rechargeable battery pack (RB1100). Be sure the battery pack is fully charged before use. Refer to the following illustration to install the battery pack.
To charge the battery pack
Notes If the voltage of the power supply exceeds the specified value, HIGH DC IN blinks in the display for 3 seconds, and the unit turns off. This adaptor is also used to recharge the (optional) NiCd battery pack. See Rechargeable NiCd Battery Pack (optional) for details.
1 Make sure the NiCd battery pack is loaded into the PMD650 (as shown above). 2 Connect the PMD650 to a wall outlet using the AC Adaptor (see AC Adaptor). 3 Set the PMD650 to off (standby).
The CHARGE indicator located next to the DC IN 13V jack blinks while the pack is charging and lights steadily when it is fully charged. A full charge takes approximately 3 hours. Note
The PMD650 takes 8 standard AA-type alkaline batteries. Refer to the following illustration to load the batteries.
The CHARGE indicator will not light if the power is on. In this case, the PMD650 operates using the AC power from the wall outlet. Due to the characteristics of the NiCd battery, its useable battery time when charged may be substantially decreased during the course of repeated charging and discharging of the battery. In this case unplug the AC adapter and, without removing the NiCd battery, leave as is for 2 to 3 days. After this period, recharge the battery again.
Notes Use only AA batteries for replacement. Be sure to insert the batteries with correct polarity (as illustrated on the battery compartment). Remove the batteries if the unit will not be used for an extended period of time. If batteries leak, dispose of them immediately. Avoid touching the leaking material or letting it come into contact with clothing, etc. Clean the battery compartment thoroughly before installing new batteries. Do not use new batteries together with batteries that have been previously used. It is possible to insert (AA-type) NiCd batteries into the battery holder, but they cannot be recharged.
The battery icon in the display shows battery strength in three steps: : Battery life is low. : Alkaline batteries : Batteries are exhausted. Replace the batteries. NiCd battery : Battery is exhausted. Recharge the battery or replace it with a fully charged battery. : LOW BATT and the REC indicator (REC mode only) blink in the display (REC blinks two times faster than during recpause mode), an alarm sounds from the headphones or internal speaker, and the unit shuts down automatically after 3 minutes. After the unit shuts down, sliding the POWER to the right sometimes turns the power on. However, the unit shuts down immediately or within 3 minutes.
Notes If the battery failure occurs during recording, the UTOC is updated before shutting down. During recording, the alarm sounds from the headphones only. The alarm can be turned off. See Adjusting the System Presets for details.
Track increment (TR_INC) (in LSR mode)
This preset determines whether or not new track numbers will be automatically assigned to new tracks. See LSR.
Pre recording time (PR_REC)
When the unit is set to rec-pause mode, it can monitor the source signal and maintain a memory cache which eliminates any time lag in the recording operation (and can even allow you to start recording slightly beforehand). This preset determines the length of the memory cache.
Time system (Time)
This preset lets you choose either a 12 hour (AM/PM) or 24 hour (military) time system.
Date form (DATE)
This preset lets you choose the order of the date (day, month, year) information.
Battery type (BATT)
For the most accurate indication of the battery life, set this preset to the type of battery you are using.
Continued on next page
Battery type Alkaline batteries Optional NiCd battery Recording about 3.5 hours about 2.5 hours Playback about 4.0 hours about 3.0 hours
Notes When recording, to avoid loss of battery power, it is recommended to always use new alkaline batteries, or a fully charged battery pack. Battery life may vary depending on the conditions under which the unit is operated (environmental temperature, humidity, speaker usage, DIGITAL OUT ON/OFF, etc.). This unit will maintain a backup of date and time for approximately one month, even with the batteries removed.
Sampling rate converter (SRC)
This preset lets you use this unit as a Sampling Rate Converter (SRC). When set to On, digital signals input to the DIGITAL IN jack are routed through the SRC, converted, and then simultaneously output from the DIGITAL OUT jack and recorded to the MD. When set to Off, digital signals input to the DIGITAL IN jack are output from the DIGITAL OUT jack as is. If the input signals are 32 kHz or 48 kHz, they are converted by the SRC before being recorded to the MD. If the input signals are 44.1 kHz, they are recorded directly to the MD without going though the SRC.
Setting the Date and Time
Before operating the PMD650, perform the following operations to set the current date and time. The current date and time are recorded automatically at the beginning of each track. Ex.: When the date form is in type D.M.Y.

The recording system in this MD recorder is radically different from those used in cassette and DAT decks and is characterized by the limitations described below. Note, however, that these limitations are inherent to the MD recording system and are not a result of mechanical trouble. Disc Full is displayed before reaching the maximum recording time (60 or 74 minutes) Once 255 tracks have been recorded on one MD, Disc Full is displayed regardless of the total recorded time. More than 255 tracks cannot be recorded on one MD. To continue recording, erase all tracks, or use another recordable MD. The remaining recording time does not increase even after erasing numerous short tracks Tracks under 4 seconds in length are not counted. Therefore erasing them may not lead to increase the recording time. Reading is displayed continuously The Reading display lasts longer than normal when a brand new (blank) disc is inserted. The total recorded time and the remaining time on the MD do not total to the maximum recording time Recording is done in minimum units of 2 seconds each, no matter how short the material. The contents recorded may thus be shorter than the maximum recording capacity. Disc space may also be further reduced by scratches. Tracks created through editing may exhibit sound dropout during search operations. Track numbers are not recorded correctly Depending on the recorded content of the CD, short tracks may be created when making a digital recording from CD. EVENT REMAIN PMD650 has limitation in number of tracks and divide (255 Maximum). If remained number is decreased to less than 51, "EV_REM=XXX" (XXX: 000 - 050) appears on display for about 2 seconds after UTOC reading or writing is completed. If "EV_REM=000" or Remain time is "0:00", Recording and Divide are not possible. We recommend you to use new disks if EV_REM=XXX appears on display.
Note This unit incorporates a high quality microprocessor. If, however, it happens to malfunction because of static electricity (etc.), unplug the AC adaptor (or remove the batteries), wait 30 seconds, reconnect the AC adaptor (or reload the batteries), then press the reset button on the rear panel. Pressing the reset button will clear the contents of the memory (UTOC).
About recording Do not shake the unit or subject it to any sudden shock or bump during recording. This may cause the recording to skip or to stop completely. Also be careful not to shock or bump the unit after recording, when Writing appears in the display and the unit is writing the recorded information to the disc. Sound from the internal (or external) microphone is conveyed via analog circuitry before being converted to a digital signal and recorded. Therefore some analog noise may be present in the recorded signal. Also, when recording with the internal microphone in an extremely quiet environment, there is a possibility of recording the sound of this unit operating. This is not a malfunction. About condensation If this unit is brought directly from a cold location to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may form on the lenses inside the deck. This is called condensation. In this state, not only is the normal operation impossible, operation may cause damage to the MD or the unit itself. Be sure to eject the MD when not using this unit. If condensation occurs, leave the unit turned on for about an hour until the moisture evaporates (do not perform any operations during this time). After an hour, turn the unit off, then turn it back on and operate as normal. If the unit cannot be operated normally no matter how long you wait, please contact a service center. To clean the cabinet Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild detergent solution. Care of MDs Do not expose the MD to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car parked in direct sunlight as there can be a considerable rise in temperature inside the car. Periodically remove dust and debris from the cartridge surface by wiping it with a dry cloth. As the MD itself is housed in a cartridge, you can handle it normally without being concerned about dirt or fingerprints. However, malfunctioning may result if the cartridge itself is dirty or warped. Do not open the shutter on the MD cartridge Trying to force the shutter open will damage the shutter.
PMD650 Portable MiniDisc Recorder
The first in a new generation of portable digital recorders, Marantz Professional is proud to present the PMD650 Portable MiniDisc Recorder. The MiniDisc format has received considerable attention in many professional applications and the PMD650 fills the need as the first truly professional and affordable portable MiniDisc recorder. The basic philosophy was simple - offer the same basic features as our legendary portable cassette recorders and establish a new benchmark of features and functions for the digital age. One of the most important aspects of these new features centers around the safety of the recordings. Always a primary concern with digital recorders, the PMD650 secures all recordings by writing a backup of the Table of Contents (TOC) at the beginning of the track (Pre-UTOC). Even if a recording is interrupted by a power failure, all recorded information can be retreived. Protection for late recording starts are protected by the Pre-Record Audio Cache that will store up to 2 seconds of audio while in the record-pause mode and then add that to the beginning of the track once recording is started. To automate recording and save disc space, the PMD650 includes a sophisticated Level Sync Recording (LSR) system. The LSR system is programmed via the Preset menu and, when activated, controls the recording of the PMD650 based on the input sound levels. The parameters of the LSR system include sound threshold level (-10dB to -60dB), time below threshold level (2 to 10 seconds), and automatic or manual track increment. For maximum versatility, the PMD650 provides various ways to record onto the disc. Either one or two mic/line sources can be recorded onto 1 (LP) or 2 (SP) tracks. When recording from one mic/line source onto 2 tracks, the PMD650 incorporates a dual mono mode that sets the level of the 2nd track 15dB lower than the first, so as to make sure that a backup track is available in the event of a problem or digital overload. Groundbreaking new features and the design and quality Marantz is famous for, make the PMD650 the only choice for professional portable MiniDisc.

A full complement of professional inputs and outputs allow total integration with professional broadcast studio and field equipment. The versatility to record either 1 or 2 tracks with any microphone combination allows customization for each individual requirement. All of the safety features built into the PMD650 ensure that an important interview or sound recording is always safe in any environment. An optional Reporter Bag (CLC600) provides storage and protection for the PMD650 and all the needed field recording accessories like microphones, cable, and batteries. Recording Studios: The exceptional sound quality, cut and paste editing capability, and enhanced safety features of the PMD650 enables it to replace cassette and DAT recorders for location recording purposes. Back at the studio, professional inputs and outputs allow total integration with other professional equipment. Sound Production: The PMD650 provides a high quality method of recording sound in the field. The built-in editing system allows tracks to be trimmed and combined in order to create custom sound files. Government: Each MiniDisc can hold up to 148 minutes of audio from either one or two, microphone or line level sources. Every track recorded on the PMD650 is marked with the exact time and date of recording start, providing a reliable reference for archiving.
