PMD-661MKIII 349.00 with free shipping in the 48 states !

Marantz PMD-661MKII/MKIII memory card Recorders

The Marantz PMD-661MKII's ergonomics are perfect for operating with a shoulder strap. With the record level control, headphone jack and LED meter placed on the top edge for easy access when worn over the shoulder, using the recorder could not be easier. The XLR connectors on the bottom allow the cables to exit in line with the user's body which both stabilizes the recorder and presents a slim profile smaller than the side of the user's body. The PMD-661MKII's design and history of reliability makes it the machine of choice for recording on the go !

All PMD-661MKII upgrades only 599.00 with ground shipping in the 48 states !

The Marantz PMD 661MKII Super MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using very high speed, very low noise and super low distortion op amps that dramatically improve low level detail and clarity. Super low THD+N op amps allow for a very wide SFDR even with signal levels down 50dB. This preserves the signal quality of the highest grade microphones when recording soft signals, like voice, un amplified music, nature sounds and FX. The Super MOD is the 661 upgrade of choice for filmmakers as it's audio qualities allow for more post production while maintaining the clarity and detail needed for optimal playback on typical audio systems used for video.

The Marantz PMD 661MKII FET MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using very high speed, very low noise and low distortion FET op amps that dramatically improve low level detail and clarity. Very low THD+N op amps allow for a very wide SFDR even with signal levels down 50dB. The warmth of the FET microphone preamp allows for a more natural vocal tone when using highly directional mics, like a shotgun mic. The very low noise is perfect when recording soft signals, like voice, un amplified music, nature sounds and FX. Our first choice for use with dynamic interview microphones. The FET upgrade has an impressive 3D stereo image, ideal for stereo nature recording !

The Marantz PMD 661MKII Concert MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using high speed, low noise and very low distortion op amps that dramatically improve fine detail and clarity. The result is a very detailed, open 3D soundstage. Components are selected by ear to optimize detail and imaging for recording all types of music where transparency is needed.

The Marantz PMD 661MKII Warm MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using high speed, low noise and very low distortion FET op amps that dramatically improve fine detail and clarity. the Warm MODs preamp chips use FETs so they sound very much like a tube preamp with the warm sound that offers a fat rounded bass tone, a sweet silky high end and the expansive soundstage found in high end tube circuits. Components are selected by ear to optimize detail and imaging for recording all types of music when a warm tone is needed.
