Portable, Ergonmic User Friendly Design

Measuring just 165 x 93 x 36 mm with a highly visible 128 x 64 dots matrix OLED (Organic LED) display, the PMD661 MKII ensures ease of use wherever recording, playback or setup may be taking place. With a high-resolution 24-bit / 96 kHz recording option means quality is never an issue when recording to the supplied SD flash card. This recorder is also compatible with SDHC media, meaning cards up to 32 GB in size can be used. The new built-in 'SD Card Check' makes it quick and easy to inset any SD card and check compatibility. The high capacity storage is combined with the ability to record for up to five hours from four AA Alkaline / Ni-MH batteries.

Password Protection and File Encryption

Marantz know that security is important, the PMD661 MKII includes a new Password protection and File encryption abilities that work hand in hand to keep recordings safe from unauthorized access. MP3 files can be encrypted to .MPS files and WAV files encrypted to .WAS files. Both .MPS and .WAV files utilize a 4 digit password protection feature so that only those with the 4 digit key can open and play the files. This can be done either on the player or in the new and updated PMD Marker Editor software, included in the box.
