The PMD660 is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but it has features that make more expensive, full-sized field recorders green with envy. It can run for hours on just four AA batteries. It records on Compact Flash media cards which you can find in any discount store, and will store more than 36 hours of mono on a single card. If audio quality is your key requirement, you get over an hour of pristine, uncompressed, 16-bit .wav files. Editing can be achieved right there in the field using either of two editing modes, or you can use your favorite audio editing application by transferring files to your PC-the PMD660 even has its own USB port. XLR inputs, phantom power, built-in mics and more-it's all there in the PMD660.

Comments about Marantz PMD660 Solid State Portable Recorder:
I was disappointed to have purchased this and find it completely unusable for my band's rehearsals. It distorts out pretty bad during loud sections. Even using an external mixer going into the line-in is very sensitive. If this is your purpose for this product I would definitely find something else with more robust mic-pres. It's NOT for louder sources. I do use it however for background sounds for radio drama and film applications. Combined with an external (or just using the internal mics), it performs quite well for capturing nature sounds or quieter SFX and foley. Overall it's just not that versatile for all sound applications. There are options that are cheaper that would probably do more for you in more situations.
