The PMD661 from Marantz is a professional-quality stereo field audio recorder that packs a wealth of recording, playback, and editing features into a compact and ergonomic package. Based on the popular PMD660, the PMD661 incorporates a wide variety of high-tech features and advancements.

The recorder uses high-quality internal preamps to record pristine sound to SD or SDHC flash memory cards. You can use the on-board microphones or the dual XLR inputs to connect external mics. The jacks will supply +48V phantom power, allowing you to use condenser microphones. You can also use the S/PDIF digital or 3.5mm mini line input to connect other audio sources. Audio files can be recorded as WAV or MP3 at rates up to 24-bit/96kHz.

On the output side, you can choose to review your material from the on-board stereo speakers or the 1/4" headphone jack with its own volume control. You can also use the stereo RCA line outputs to connect to a mixer or speakers. A USB 2.0 port allows you to connect to a computer to transfer your files for editing and sharing.

The PMD661 provides an intuitive interface with easy-to-use controls and a bright, clear OLED screen. A 10-segment LED meter makes it easy to monitor audio levels at a glance. Designed for a life of mobility, the PMD661 is constructed from durable ABS plastic, and can operate for up to 5 hours on 4 standard AA batteries.
