About this product

We have one Ex-demo model available at a discounted price, it is not in its original packaging.

The Marantz Professional PMD661 MKII Handheld Recorder is a professional stereo field recorder that offers recording, playback, editing and security features in a compact and rugged unit. Like its predecessors the PMD660 and the PMD661, the PMD661 MKII provides affordable high quality 24-bit/96kHz recording on to SDHC cards (up to 32GB) whilst incorporating a host of new features and advancements.

The PMD661 MKII offers the full gamut of legacy features including ‘point and shoot’ on-board directional microphones, dual balanced XLR inputs to connect external mics and 48V phantom power for 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 and files can be transferred to your computer via the USB 2.0 port. PMD Mark Editor software is included for file editing. There are built-in stereo speakers and a 1/4” headphone jack so that you can listen to recordings in the field, and a stereo unbalanced RCA line output to connect to a mixer or speakers. The on-board editing functions allow you to copy, segment and divide files without the use of a computer.  The Marantz Professional PMD661 MKII Handheld Recorder can run for up to 6 hours of continuous recording using 4 x AA batteries and comes with an AC adapter to enable you to charge rechargeable batteries.

New security features have been added to the MKII to help keep your device and your recordings safe from unauthorized access. Menu locking and passcode protection keeps recorder usage restricted and file encryption allows you to lock specific .WAV or .MP3 files and passcode protect them. Another new feature is the linear retake record function, which allows you to append an existing recording and add comments or further sound samples. There is also an SD card check feature which allows you to easily check the compatibility of a particular SD card type.
