    It's not as complicated as it can seem. You just have to:
    • adjust the bias for a flat highs response (same as input)
    • adjust the rec level for each song, preferably while monitoring the result.

    Holy god! Prices went high indeed. I bought mines for less than 250 euros (though not mint nor new or boxed).

    Great article Helaba! and nice unit Boodokhan. The little brother to the 430 is the Marantz PMD 420, two heads instead of three. This unit is identical on the exterior and can still be bought for 1/3 of the price of the 430.
