Accenteur's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Marantz Professional PMD660
I used two days.
I liked its small size, its key practices and key unique to the recording.
I currently use a mini-disc NH900 HI-MD and I wanted to try the Marantz to mount a step up the quality of my recordings.
Unfortunately, I t trsdu my first test with a micro RALIS Telinga parable of birdsong. The resulting sound is a sound that will remind boiled what is achieved with a cassette magnto 70s.
I rsultats much better with the mini-disc, the notes are much better and I can push dtach levels without the sound seems saturated.
I think the Marantz prampli microphone is involved and that the signal to noise ratio of 60 db indicated by the manufacturer is the main default of this recorder.
I returned the hardware to quickly get a refund and I will now wait before buying the hardware srieux.
Marantz MODEL and certainly on the PMD 670 and 671 made a big mistake and I think that with forums like this and that information travels fast on the Internet, they should learn to correct this weakness .

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- How long have you use it?</span>
The purchase is trsrcent.

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- What is the particular feature you like best and least?</span>

What I like most:
* The unit is compact without being a minidisc (which I just fled). Let's say he makes 4.
* XLR microphone inputs symtriques.
* The Phantom power supply.
* The guts.
* The clarity of the menu. You'll quickly get the camera in hand.

What I like least:
* The impossibility of recording the del 128 kb / s MP3 Stereo and 64 kb / s mono.
* The lack of digital input / output.
* Transferring files to the PC USB1 instead of USB2 standard. This is the current standard and the product was released in March 2005!
* The impossibility of making a transfer to PC without the power supply sector. Also, forget the combination laptop / PMD660 in the countryside.
* The appearance of the appliance ... ca falls, it is that cass sr.
* The strap comes with the device is really lgre.

No. Just different MDs and Varis.

- How do you report qualitprix?</span>
I am generally satisfied with the machine. I have tested with a micro LEM DO 21 (I use almost exclusively, as part of the job) and a B2Pro Berhinger. I like the resulats from everything I've experienced before with the mini-discs. I think the MD recorders have a hard time shooting the party really DO LEM 21 ... which probably need a good microphone preamplifier.
More prsence, more depth, clarity. It did not see anything.
Unlike the comment above, I must admit I've never boss with Hi-MD, but MD at all. And the PMD660 is doing much better story if I hold the prciser, I'm not in the absolute purity.
And if we talk about transfer and well even in USB1 it's better that the contents of a minidisc that transfer to the PC in real time.
But ... but the price is too lv me, especially as the MP3 compression limit 128Kb / s failure to register that fact that I PCM 44.1.
I use NiMH batteries with 1800 and I think he is greedy.

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...</span>
I wanted to invest in the PMD771 really offering him what I wanted on paper ... but hey, a little excessive in price.
Thus, the PMD should I use ...
For the report, the interview, it's still a great product ... Probably better than the Edirol R1 ...

Marantz Professional PMD660
Hello I just bought this product knowing that it is not the best of the best far from it actually has the sound recording is standard ..... but I had no choice because I work on mac and this station is not the MD.
+ are the ease of use recognition IMMEDIATE pieces by itunes (a rgale), its taken legeretles 2
xlr, phantom power supply to the formatsMP3 and wave, recording mono or stereo and it works immediately on my microdrive photo without reformatting. the less the size (too big) the fragilitne not drop it at all fairly cheap plastic) and even with a huge NOISE micro PRO but it size disadvantage for PRO is easily circumvented I use SoundSoap 99 Euros and the registration is synthesized nickel.Pour is a product of bizare taken for PRO microphones recording of a quality that is barely that of a registered holder of old tape but terribly practical ........ I do not regret having bought it even if a little competition on this sector is vital because it is much too expensive for what it is

Marantz Professional PMD660
- How long have you use it?
1 week!
- What is so special that you like most and least?

+ the simplicity and recording quality
the plastic-very "cheap"
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

oh yes ... DAT, Nagra, MD ...
- How would you rate the quality / price?

Compared to the price of a Nagra, there's no photo ... Now it is agreed, it is not an audiophile device, but hey, connected to a multitrack console, it can still make the sound rather very beautiful way.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes, even if the price is a little toujurs ... how to say .... a little high, I say, this type of device is the only of its kind in this price range, anyway.

So to have it tested in a situation, I say, this is an excellent choice, well ahead the MD who have only taken the mini-jack which switches low quality sometimes made me angry so often. Because what counts, it is not to have the ultimate quality is to have a clean, quality. To have a reliable.

There I found my happiness. I repeat: perfect for the story, some just for the sound of audiophile. But it will fill many services.
