Pro-level Recorder with Powerful Security Features

The Marantz PMD661 MKII handheld recorder brings you high-quality, pro-level portable recording in a convenient handheld design. You'll find the PMD661 MKII is fully capable at nearly any recording task, and support for high-capacity SDHC media lets you record at up to 24-bit/96kHz audio quality for hours. As far as inputs, you get both analog and digital - plus built-in stereo condenser microphones. But aside from versatility and audio performance, you'll find some very beneficial extra features that set the Marantz PMD661 MKII recorder apart from the rest.

Marantz PMD661 MKII Handheld Recorder at a Glance:
  • Linear-style "Retake" function makes it easy to record over mistakes
  • Advanced encryption keeps your files secure from unauthorized playback
  • Free PMD Mark Editor software makes it easy to edit your marker points after recording
Linear-style "Retake" function makes it easy to record over mistakes

Let's say you're using your Marantz PMD661 MKII handheld recorder for dictation, or interviews perhaps. The Retake function lets you "rewind" and record over any mistakes or disruptions, without creating a new audio file. Later, when you're managing all of your recorded audio, you'll be extremely pleased that you did not create a lot of unnecessary files. You'll also be spared the hassle of piecing together multiple files created during the same recording session.

Advanced encryption keeps your files secure from unauthorized playback

If your audio recordings are of a sensitive nature, you need to be sure they can't be accessed without authorization. The PMD661 MKII lets you protect your files right from the start, encrypting your MP3 files to MPS files and your WAV files to WAS files. Both types of files require a four-digit password authorization to play back. Even better, password authorization will also be required to play back the files in the included PMD Mark Editor software, so your recordings will be secure there too.

Free PMD Mark Editor software makes it easy to edit your marker points after recording

In addition to the PMD661 MKII's easily navigable user interface, flexible input options, and excellent sound quality, Marantz bundled its Mark Editor software for free for the first time. This software lets you adjust marker points you make on recorded files after you've recorded, so you can perform basic editing functions on any PC or laptop without needing any extra software.

Marantz PMD661 MKII Handheld Recorder Features:
  • Handheld recorder ideal for dictation, journalism, broadcast, music, education, and professional use
  • Use the built-in stereo condenser mics, or your own mics via XLR inputs with +48v phantom power
  • Retake function lets you record over mistakes or disruptions, without creating new files
  • Powerful file encryption keeps your audio safe with four-digit password authorization for playback
  • Records MP3/WAV(BWF) files to SD/SDHC memory cards for hours of high-quality recording
