Marantz has raised the bar, exponentially. The PMD671 can record 24-bit, 96 kHz audio for the highest sound quality available in the field or even in the studio. The ability to read-after-write offers completely new levels of functionality never before available in a field recorder. Even the mic preamps have been dramatically improved. Then add programmable presets, and changing formats on the fly is as easy as pressing a button. Serious professionals need serious tools. If your application requires uncompromising audio, unflinching reliability, and unprecedented functionality, you owe it to yourself to take a very serious look at the PMD671.

    •  24-bit, 96 kHz PCM capable for unrivaled fidelity •  "Virtual Third Head" for confidence monitoring •  Read-after-write capability for random access playback while recording •  No moving parts-no maintenance •  Built-in USB 2.0 port for ultra-fast, easy file transfer to PC •  Records uncompressed 16 and 24 bit PCM .wav files at 44.1, 48, 88.2 or 96 kHz •  Records mono .mp3 files at 64 kbps •  Records stereo .mp3 files at 128 kbps •  Uses inexpensive, widely available Compact Flash media (CF) •  A 1 GB CF card can hold almost 30 minutes of uncompressed stereo (24 bit, 96 kHz) •  A 1 GB CF card can hold almost 90 minutes of uncompressed stereo (16 bit, 44.1kHz) •  A 1 GB CF card can hold over 17 hours (stereo) or 36 hours (mono) .mp3 •  4 to 6 hour battery life with standard AA alkaline batteries •  Two XLR mic connections with +48v phantom power •  Dramatically upgraded microphone preamps •  RCA line I/O •  Built-in monitor speaker •  Optional RC600 wired remote control with peak indicator •  Future timecode upgrade planned.

Unparalleled 24/96 Audio
Recording PCM audio at 24-bit resolution and 96 kHz sampling frequency is the absolute state of the art for digital audio applications.  It offers 256 times the amplitude resolution, and more than twice the frequency resolution of compact discs. New microphone preamps have even been designed to take advantage of this quantum leap in fidelity.

RAW (VTH-Virtual Third Head)
Professional analog recorders had a dedicated "third head" to monitor recorded signals after they were printed to tape. It was called, "confidence monitoring", because it allowed engineers to be 100% confident about what they had recorded as it was happening. The PMD671 is unique in offering the 21st century version of this same functionality, by playing back the recorded data simultaneously, rather than simply monitoring the input source.

Time Shift (Time-Shift Playback)
The same technology that allows the virtual third head also allows time-shift playback capability. This means that as you continue to record an event, you can back up and listen to various parts, and then return to listening to the event in real-time.  Court reporting and technical investigation may never be the same.

Professional I/O
Let's face it: plugging professional-grade microphones into an 1/8" jack is asking for trouble. The PMD671 offers two balanced XLR mic inputs with +48v phantom power, and all new audiophile quality microphone preamps. Caught in a pinch? The PMD671 includes a condenser mic built right in. Of course, RCA stereo line I/O's and digital I/O's are also provided.

Long Battery Life
Tired of lugging around six extra D-Cells just so you can interrupt your recording to change batteries half-way through an event?  The PMD671 will run for four to six hours on regular alkaline AA batteries. Also available as optional accessories, the rechargeable NiCd battery (RB1100) will power the PMD671 for 4-5 hours while the NiMH battery (RB1651) will power the unit for 6-7 hours.  And both batteries can be charged in the unit eliminating the need for carrying bulky battery chargers into the field.
