The door bell rang today as someone delivered the brand new Marantz PMD 620 from my friends at Marantz Professional. I’ll put it through the paces in the next few days, but I must admit, after about an hour of just playing around with it, my general thought is that is a great little unit and definitely a keeper. Stay tuned.
Earlier this week, Marantz Professional invited me out to their home office as part of a presentation they asked me to participate in. My host was Brian Gorman, Brand Manager for Marantz Professional. After having used their gear for so long it was great to meet all the people who work behind the scenes to make it all happen. They have quite an operation.
I also got the unique opportunity to participate in giving feedback on some upcoming products they are working on. Let’s just say some really cool devices are coming.
If you are curious I have uploaded a tour of their offices.
It has been a busy week for me speaking about what we are working on at GigaVox and podcasting in general. First I had the opportunity to go to the Chicago area Tuesday and Wednesday for a visit with Marantz Professional and to speak at an event at Northwestern University. After that it was back to Los Angeles for Thursday and Friday and a presentation at PR Online Convergence 07. At Friday’s lunch, Jason Calacanis gave the keynote. I always enjoy hearing Jason speak. Count me among the fans of his blunt approach; it has always resonated with me. Lots of good stuff plus a little hint about what he may be up to with Project X.
