First, it is almost impossible to deny that this recorder is capable of making some of the best recordings that can be made with a portable audio recorder. I've owned a fair number of digital recorders from different companies over the years, and the PCM-D100 unquestionably stands apart from these in its ability to make incredibly accurate, noiseless, and distortion-free recordings. In fact, when I made my first tests of this unit well over a year ago, I "jumped" when I heard the quality of these initial recordings. Here's but one example: I had the unit recording in LPCM mode, sitting on my office desk. At about a distance of six feet, the unit accurately picked up THE MOVEMENT OF MY HAND IN MY SHIRT POCKET as I was looking for a pen. Without exaggeration, you could hear the friction between my hand and my shirt jumping out of a nearly silent background (i.e., a basically "noiseless" sound floor). I was simply astonished. I then made some short sample recordings of my wife and me talking to one another with no specific care taken for microphone placement, etc. Again, to my great surprise, the recordings sounded better than most studio recordings I've heard. These may sound like exaggerations, but they are not, and these describe only my first introduction to this incredible recording device before I even knew how to customize the settings for optimized output.
So, what makes this device's recordings sound so good? The (short) answer is the combination of:
1. Microphones with superb sound and sensitivity;
2. Quality pre-amps that fall within Sony's "High Resolution" specification;
3. The digital and analog circuitry, including the D/A converters, employed within the device; and
4. The implementation of LPCM (Linear Pulse Code Modulation) and DSD (Direct Stream Digital) codecs to losslessly save data
Any web search will yield the numerous tests done on this unit and confirm its unique status amongst portable recorders. I examined a number of these online professional reviews before my purchase, and these are still available via a simple Google search, but I still held a somewhat show-me-what-you've-got attitude until I tried the recorder myself, and was still startlingly impressed when I did my own field tests. There was--and is--no question that this is a TRULY impressive recording device.
Build quality is on par with the best of Sony's Japanese-made equipment. There is an imparted feeling like the device was carved out of a single block of aluminum, with no squeaks, or misfitted pieces, and that makes sense because the unit employs an aluminum-based frame. Buttons, knobs, and levers work reassuringly well and in a manner that we wish we saw in all our electronic devices. Moving parts, which include the two microphones, the sound level dials, and the protective metal hinge, etc., feel wonderful to use. And although this is an idiosyncratic observation, the device itself just looks gorgeous. It appears professional without being overwhelming, attractively designed without going overboard with overly-glitzy design elements. And yet, to most anyone, its gorgeous physical design and design elements will be immediately apparent. The front LCD panel is well laid out, with clear depictions of functions and settings (see the user manual for examples of how the screen looks), and can be backlit or not, depending on need.
The majority of features are accessed through a series of buttons on the front panel, although some controls are located on either side of the unit. The microphones are individually mounted on rotational pivot mounts at the top of the device, allowing positioning of the microphones for different types of recording. The microphones are placed under a cage of fixed metal bars which serve to help protect the microphones from being physically hit. Similarly, an aluminum pivoting ring on the right side of the device helps protect the left and right volume controls from being accidentally changed. An inset tripod screw mount is placed on the center-back of the unit, which is very useful because this device is so sensitive that you will likely not be recording much while holding it in your hand.
External microphones can be used with this unit, but they cannot be XLR-style. To use an external microphone, the microphone must have a standard stereo 3.5" plug style. The unit also allows for digital input and digital output via fiber optic cables, which means you can use the unit as a true digital recorder using optical binary transmission of data, really cool for a device like this. Most people who purchase this unit, however, are going to be typically using the device as a sound recorder with the built-in microphones, and these microphones perform so well that the need for any external microphone will be rendered essentially irrelevant. Given that there are no inputs for XLR-style microphones, the PCM-D100 is not a unit made for multi-microphone input and mixing (like the Zoom H6, for example, and which does so in an impressive manner), and you START with that understanding, you're in a good place for properly reviewing the unit for its intended audience.
The unit comes with a wireless remote control, which is not only a nice touch, but, in reality, an essential component, again because of the sensitivity of the microphones. You will not want to start and stop recordings with the onboard controls unless you are planning to later go back and edit out the sound caused by activating the buttons by finger presses: the remote allows you to do basic functions without touching the machine. A furry windscreen, which might look ludicrous if one does not have experience with devices like this, is very helpful for making outside recordings when a breeze or wind is present. Again, remember the incredible sensitivity of the unit can also work AGAINST you, so items like the remote and the furry windscreen are really helpful. If you are outside and even a slight breeze is present, without the furry windscreen, those highly sensitive microphones will generate lots of wind noise in your recording.
The device is powered by four AA (LR6) batteries which are loaded into a tray. The tray is then inserted into the bottom rear of the device after a hinged and lock-enabled door is opened. The battery tray clicks nicely into place before you close the door, so you know the batteries are not placing a strain on the door, nor is noise created by batteries bumping around inside the case. Nickle metal hydride rechargeable batteries are recommended in the manual. I use both Eneloop batteries and regular alkaline batteries without issue. Although the device can also be powered by a 6V 800mA A/C adaptor, that adaptor is not supplied, a *bizarre* move for such an expensive device. Nevertheless, such an adaptor can be purchased very inexpensively, if needed. The consensus is that the batteries will last about twelve hours when used in a continuous recording session.
If it matters, this unit comes presented (and believe me, no other word is more accurate) in an exquisite black cardboard box with a black felt-clad inner box in which the device sits, with accessories beneath it in their own dedicated sections. A colorful cardboard print encloses the entire package. If you purchase this device, you'll want to try to keep this packaging because it is so unusual and also distinguishes the product.
Here are some other cool items about the Sony PCM-D100 that I've selected as possibly pertinent for consideration:
1. This model is the successor to the PCM-D50, which was also highly revered, but was not a High-Resolution recorder as is the PCM-D100
2. 32 Gb of built-in memory is provided; an SDXC card slot provides additional storage to at least 96 Gb, and maybe more
3. The unit is capable of recording in "DSD" format (Google it), and up to 192kHz/24bit LPCM, which is true High Resolution specification
4. The unit records in various MP3 quality levels in addition to DSD and Linear Pulse Code Modulation; it also PLAYS additional formats
5. Super Bit Mapping (Google it) increases sound quality to 20 bits per word when recording at 16-bit levels
6. Using a 64Gb SDXC card and recording at 128 kpbs in MP3, you'll be able to record about 1,500 *HOURS*
7. Using a 64Gb SDXC card and recording at LPCM at 194kHz/24 bits, you'll be able to record over 20 hours (incredible!)
8. Sony's "Sound Forge LE" software is included if you do not have sound editing software (but "Audacity" is free and works impressively well)
9. A digital limiter trims off excessive input and automatically adjusts to within the buffer range of -12dB to prevent distortion
10. You can simultaneously record in both MP3 and LPCM; cool, if you want to send a reduced quality version to someone but don't want to have to first convert the huge LPCM file
11. Cross Memory Recording allows the unit to automatically switch from internal memory when the memory limit is reached to the SDXC card (nice touch!)
12. The inherent noise level from the machine itself is 19dDSPL(A) or below, which is incredible. You just have to hear it to believe it.
Without question, this is a Five-Star device. I've used a ton of Sony equipment over the years of all different types, and this device certainly is among the nicest consumer-grade Sony products I've run across. And, in fact, this device is actually used for professional uses, so labeling it as a "consumer" device is almost a misnomer. Let's just say that the Sony PCM-D100 resides at the very top of the consumer-grade offerings of this type of device across many brands.
There is another stark truth: this is an expensive piece of equipment. Although its price has come down somewhat from its first introduction in 2014, it still carries a price that stings. If you are looking for a single, self-contained recorder without using external mics connected with wires, microphone power supplies, etc., but that records at the pinnacle of the available devices today, this is unquestionably the product to beat. But you have to decide for yourself if getting this supreme performance is worth the price, considering that there are many very good devices available today for 1/3 the price. But as of mid-2018, it is, in my opinion, the best recorder on the market for its type. I believe that it is probably destined to become recognized as a Sony classic model at some point in the future.
Again, I rate this as a Five-Star item, and if you do some web searches to pull up some professional reviews, you'll find a slew of them from a wide variety of sources, and they will all attest to the recording quality of this device and its distinguished role amongst its peers. But you'll have to think long and hard about that price. My hope is that this short review may help you with that decision.
Part of me wants to say it's pricey but it's not. Nothing else in this price range delivers what Sony accomplished here. Try to snag it for $600ish if possible. (I see some people are selling it for close to 1000, don't buy unless desperate)
The recording on this unit is phenomenal too. I bought this to record nature sounds behind my home in the the brushwood and it picks up little details even the rustling of leaves.
Screen display is clear and crisp.
The original box that came with the recorder is huge and wish it was more compact for storage.
