Marantz Updates

The Marantz Professional PMD661 MKII is the new successor to the PMD661 digital audio recorder. The hardware features an integrated stereo condenser mic array, balanced mic and balanced line XLR inputs, as well as unbalanced line outputs on RCA connectors and a secondary unbalanced line input on 3.5 mm mini jack connector.

The unit can use SDHC media, matched by five hours’ recording time from four AA batteries, and drag and drop file transfer is supported via the USB port. The ‘Retake’ feature takes you back though the previously recorded audio and creates a drop-in point to overdub. Also new is the PMD620 MKII.
