Marantz's mid-priced workhorse recorder

Marantz's robust and rugged PMD661MKII (Mark 2) recorder is still the Industry Standard for broadcasters around the world. It is built like a tank and can take all the knocks. It remains their premium portable recorder.

However, for those who don't require quite such a battleship but still need good performance - and at lower cost - here's Marantz's medium duty offering, the PMD561. 

A compact handheld audio recorder that records directly onto SD/SDHC flash media, the PMD561 is about the same size as the PMD661MKII, if a little longer, and yet it delivers excellent audio recording quality thanks to its sensitive stereo microphone arrangement and superior solid-state recording process. The PMD561 is intended for reporters, safety personnel, researchers, anyone who needs accurate, detailed, reliable in-field recordings. It’s ideal for situations where no-compromise recordings are required, but bulky equipment and separate microphones are not possible or appropriate.

Its 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 phono connectors and a secondary unbalanced line input on 3.5 mm mini jack connector.

Measuring just 6.7” x 4.1” x 1.6” (170 x 105 x 40mm) 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, its 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 seven hours recording time from four AA Alkaline / Ni-MH batteries. Drag-and-drop file transfer is supported via the USB port.

The PMD561's ‘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 gathering applications.

Applications include broadcast, electronic news gathering/journalism, DSLR video, sound effects capture, law enforcement*, municipal and court recording*, government and surveillance*, musicians, dictation for law*, medical, education, and meeting recording.

 

*Please note that these applications often require recorded audio to be encrypted for security purposes. The PMD561 does not provide password protected audio encryption or passcode protection for the device itself. If you require these features please go to our Marantz PMD661MKII page here or our Marantz PMD620MKII page here.
