the Marantz Professional PMD661 MKII, the long awaited successor
to the popular PMD661 professional compact digital audio recorder,
now offering many improved recording and security features.
The PMD661 MKII
sports a refined professional feature set that builds upon the legacy
of the original PMD661 by maintaining the ergonomic top facia layout
focused around highly developed multi-functional controls, ensuring
comprehensive single handed operation.
The hardware feature set includes an integrated high-quality stereo
condenser microphone array for point and shoot operation,
switchable balanced mic/XLR line inputs, as well as unbalanced line
outputs on RCA connectors and a secondary unbalanced line input
on 3.5 mm mini jack connector.
Measuring just 165 x 93 x 36 mm (6.5 x 3.7 x 1.4)
with a highly visible 128 x 64 dots matrix OLED (organic LED) display
ensures ease of use wherever recording, playback or setup may be
taking place. A high-resolution 24-bit / 96 kHz recording option
means quality is never an issue when recording to the supplied SD
flash card. Compatibility with SDHC media means cards up to 32 GB
in size can be used. In addition, the new built in SD Card
Check makes it easy and convenient to insert any SD card and
check compatibility. High capacity media storage is matched by five
hours recording time from four AA Alkaline / Ni-MH batteries. Drag
and drop file transfer is supported via the USB port.
The new Retake feature allows a simple button press
to take you back though the previously recorded audio and create
a drop-in point to overdub. This enables easy re-recording part
way through unwanted takes ideal for dictation and electronic note
New security features have also been added into the MKII with Password
Protection and File encryption ability that work hand in hand to
keep recordings safe form unauthorized access. MP3 files can be
encrypted to .MPS files and WAV files encrypted to .WAS files. Both
MPS and WAS files utilize a 4 digit password protection feature
so that only those with the 4 digit key can open and play the files
either on the player, or in the new updated PMD Marker Editor software,
included in the box.
New PMD Marker Editor: Marantz Professional has once again bundled
its Marker Editor software free in the box. PMD Mark Editor
allows the marker points made on the recorded .le to be adjusted
post-recording, and a new file created, meaning basic editing can
be carried out on any handy PC or laptop, and .les posted for immediate
distribution - plus the new 4 digit password security update.
