Based on the innovative design of our hugely popular PMD660, the rugged and robust Marantz PMD661 incorporates a wide range of technical advances and convenience features that help it excel in virtually any application. Big enough to accommodate dual XLR microphones and light enough for handheld use, the PMD661 offers exceptional recording quality in literally any location.
For critical field applications like electronic news gathering, sound capture on location and music recording, the PMD661 provides the audio precision of 24-bit, 96 kHz digital recording. Its exceptional resolution and file-based architecture makes it perfect for critical stereo recording of music and sound effects in the field, while true mono recording and lower bit rates make it equally appropriate for meetings, conferences, legal proceedings and podcasts. The ergonomic control panel, one-touch transport system and large, bright OLED display make it easy for both seasoned pros and first-tine users to record with confidence. This portable solid-state recorder uses readily available SD or SDHC media cards, and gets over five hours of operation from four AA alkalines.
From inputs to output, for recording, editing and playback, the Marantz PMD661 packs a wealth of functionality in a compact, ergonomic package. With full support for professional microphones, comprehensive record, playback and editing capabilities at a very reasonable price, the PMD661 puts the future of field recording in the palm of your hand.
