Hi JM--
In terms of noise performance, the AT-822's "self-noise" [~24dB(A)] 
is likely to be appreciably louder and "mask" much or all of the mic 
preamps' noise associated with all of these recorders unless the 
PMD620 is much noisier than its predecessors (unlikely). The same 
would probably be true for many, older MD recorders. Based on some 
tests with Hi-MD mic pres, one could begin to hear some preamp noise 
performance differences when the mics' self noise is lowered into the 
realm of 12dB(A). Rob D.
