DMi D&M Installation has announced that it only recommends the use of Kingston Technology Compact Flash memory cards in its Marantz Professional range of solidstate recorders. The recommendation is the result of a compatibility assurance scheme developed in partnership with Kingston Technology.

Under the cooperative scheme, Kingston Technology’s R&D department has rigorously tested its range of CF cards with all Marantz Professional’s PMD products, and has provided a list of all compatible memory cards on its website –

Selection of ‘Marantz’ on the Kingston Technology website’s Memory Search facility, provides a list of all memory cards compatible with all Marantz recorders. Marantz and Kingston Technology assure that Marantz PMD recorders are configured for use with the listed Kingston Technology cards, and in the event of any failure in the lifetime of a specified card, Kingston Technology will replace the card FOC.

With many CF cards on the market designed only to meet the performance tolerances required for use with digital cameras and other CE products, issues of reliability resulting from the more critical component quality and operating speeds required for audio recording applications, are a concern for Marantz Professional customers. The joint assurance scheme with Kingston Technology has been undertaken in response to these concerns.

Mark Perrins, General Manager, DMi D&M Installation, commented: “The volume and varying quality of CF cards in today’s market can be at the least confusing for the customer, and at worst incompatible with the recorder. This agreement between Marantz Professional and Kingston gives peace of mind to existing and future users of Marantz Professional products. In our aim to provide benchmark customer support, this will prove a hugely useful tool, reducing the time and cost incurred, both by our customers and by us, in ensuring complete compatibility between product and media.”

Commenting for Kingston Technology, Ann Keefe, UK Sales Director stated: “When D&M Installation needed a digital memory partner that would provide their customers the same high quality in their digital memory as they do in their recording equipment, they naturally approached Kingston Technology. We have a very strong reputation in the digital market, we were able to show that the quality of our products and flexibility of our service would meet and exceed the level of expectation D&M customers experience and expect. We are very pleased to be working with DMi D&M Installation on our compatibility assurance scheme.”

Compatible memory cards can also be purchased on the Kingston Technology website –
