Marantz Professional PMD-706 overview

  • 1Description

The Marantz Professional PMD-706 is a six-channel recorder designed for professionals working with DSLR cameras. Recording audio at sample rates and resolutions up to 96 kHz/24-bit, it’s designed to attach to a camera, a camera rig, or to double as a dedicated, unattached field recorder. The device accepts SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards, housing up to 128GB of recorded audio. Its battery lasts approximately 5.5 hours in the field (with phantom power off). 

Marantz Professional’s high-definition, discrete microphone preamps are provided, as are four combination XLR-1/4” input jacks that can handle mic- and line-level sources—with or without phantom power. Two 1/4" TRS jacks are also supplied, in addition to a 3.5mm TRS input that further expands its functionality.

A dual-recording function allows you to record two tracks, one at a hotter level, and the other at a reduced level; in this manner, you can safeguard against accidental clipping, such as when a person in the shot starts yelling without warning, or for no reason whatsoever. You can utilize this dual-recording feature to create a total of three safety tracks. Included with the PMD-706 are breakout cables for converting 1/4" to balanced female XLR connections; these can be used with the unit’s TRS jacks. 

Key Features at a Glance
  • 6-channel recording up to 96 kHz/24-bit
  • SD/SDHC/SDXC recording media
  • 4 x XLR/TRS combo jacks for mic- and line-level inputs
  • High-definition, discrete microphone preamps
  • 2 x 1/4" TRS jacks for line-level inputs

  • Low-cut filter (5 positions), limiting function, and M/S microphone decoding

    Marantz Professional PMD-706 reviews

    6-Channel DSLR Recorder with up to 96 kHz/24-Bit Resolution is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of features for the price - and a big glitch I use this machine for recording music in the field. First impressions - nice feature set, good in/out options, adequate build quality, easy to power, preamps sound good. Now for the bad news - if you lose power (in my case the USB connection for the external battery came loose and it drained the AAs I had in for a backup) the file in progress will vanish. No recoverable data on the card. No file with a 0byte incomplete header like just about every other recorder on the market. Nothing. I contacted Marantz Professional support after my incident in hopes to recover the 1h:20m of the concert I had been recording and was told quote - "that's the way it works - lose power lose files". Tested at home under same conditions and same results. No files. Hopefully this can be fixed with a firmware update. Otherwise make sure you have a good fit for the USB cable for your external battery (I was using the supplied cable but not anymore) and fresh AAs in addition to checking the battery icon (it will show which power source - USB disconnect automatically defaults to internal batteries) to ensure you have plenty of power.
