Make sophisticated PCM/MP3 recordings using one hand!

A robust and versatile professional handheld PCM / MP3 recorder, the PMD661 recorder from Marantz offers a streamlined form factor, a superior feature set, and the use of SD flash media. Major design innovations include a smaller footprint and an improved top facia layout with fewer buttons and more highly developed use of multi-functional operation. Measuring a mere 6.5" x 3.7" x 1.4" (165 x 93 x 36 mm), the PMD661's small footprint, combined with the improved control layout, ensures comprehensive single-handed operation.

The Marantz PMD661 features switchable balanced mic/line XLR inputs and a S/PDIF digital input, as well as unbalanced line-outs on RCA connectors and a secondary unbalanced line-in on 3.5 mm mini jack connector. Also included for the first time at this price point within the Marantz range is a high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz recording option (PCM).

The PMD661 portable recorder incorporates SD flash media, the most widely available and fastest developing flash memory format. Compatibility with SDHC media means that cards currently up to 32 GB in size can be used. High capacity media storage is matched by up to five-plus hours recording time from four AA Alkaline or NiMH batteries (not included). Drag and drop file transfer is supported via the USB 2.0 port. In a company first, Marantz Professional has bundled its Mark Editor software with the unit, free of charge. PMD Mark Editor allows the marker points made on the recorded file to be adjusted post-recording, creating a new file, so that basic audio editing can be carried out on a PC or MAC if desired.

  • MP3/WAV (BWF) recording, with files saved directly to SD/SDHC memory cards
  • 44.1/48/96kHz sample rate selections, in 16 or 24-bit quantization
  • Switchable balanced XLR Mic/Line inputs with +48V phantom power
  • S/PDIF Digital Input
  • Built-in stereo condenser microphones
  • Large, easy-view OLED (Organic LED) display
  • Large, easy-to-use multi-function interface with improved navigation

  • 1/4" headphone jack with independent level control
  • Built-in stereo speakers
  • Solid, field-worthy handheld design
  • Battery-powered operation via 4 AA Alkaline, providing over 5 hours of typical operation (unit also accepts off-the-shelf rechargeable NiMH batteries. Batteries not included)

  • Advanced editing features, including Timer Record/Playback, Copy segment, & File divide

Marantz PMD661-Quality!

By john lund

from Seattle

Comments about Marantz PMD661 Portable SD Recorder:

They are really easy to use, record in fantastic cd quality audio on SD cards, and are small enough to sneak in to concerts!
It can be fragile and does not come with a case, but this is the best field recorder I have ever used. My main reason is to record my band live. I use one mic on the PA main and the other in close to get the instruments. Later I run the signal through a board and mix in mono to CD. The quality can be sparkling and clean if you mic it right. Expensive, yes, but well worth the money. Really easy to use too. Highly recommended!! I love the XLR inputs and phantom power. With a 4gb SD card you get nearly 3 hours of extremely high quality audio.
They are a bit fragile. I am on my second unit in 3 years. This time I got an extended warr.....I think at this price a good case would match the quality audio as far as value.
Again, needs a case, please!!


I would buy this product again and again
