Marantz Professional PMD-561 overview

  • 1Description

The PMD561 from Marantz Professional is a portable audio recorder designed for professional uses such as recording in the field, conducting interviews, or digitizing material played through a stereo receiver. Recording directly to SD and SDHC cards, the unit sports two combination XLR / 1/4" inputs for microphone and line-level signals, offering you 48V phantom power for the microphone inputs should you choose to use condenser microphones.

A stereo 3.5mm line input, used in conjunction with the included 3.5mm to RCA adapter cable, provides you the opportunity to input audio from a receiver or an amplifier. Should you wish to connect digital audio, the PMD561 boasts an RCA S/PDIF input.

Playback options abound as well, with a 1/4" input for pro-audio headphones and dual RCA outputs to route signal to receiver equipment. Transferring your audio to computers can be accomplished via USB and while utilizing the included USB cable. This unit can record in MP3 formats up to 320 kbps, and in WAV formats up to 24-bit/96 kHz. With four AA batteries, the recorder lasts up to seven hours.
