A robust and versatile professional handheld PCM/MP3 recorder, the PMD661 improves on the PMD660, offering a streamlined form factor, an expanded feature set and the use of SD Flash media. New design innovations include a smaller footprint and an improved top facia layout with fewer buttons and more highly developed use of multifunctional operation.

Measuring 6.5x3.7x1.4 inches, the 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 3.5mm mini-jack connector. Also included is a high-resolution 24-bit/96-kHz recording option (PCM).

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 port. 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 editing can be carried out on a PC or Mac if desired.
