The Marantz PMD680 portable flash audio recorder is the latest entry in the company's line up of field audio recorders.
The unit records 16-bit digital audio using PC Card media - flash memory cards. Audio files recorded on the system can be transferred to a computer for editing, archiving, or uploading to the Internet. The Type III PC Card slot accepts both compact flash cards (with adaptor) and ATA-sized PC Cards.
It records audio in MP2 format - the voice-optimized version of MP3 audio compression. Various compression settings are available to extend recording times on smaller-capacity PC Cards. It can also record uncompressed PCM digital audio as Wave (.wav) or Broadcast Wave (.bwf) files.
A built-in EDL system enables the user to place reference marks and create playback sequences. It can record through the built in microphone, an external microphone or telephone line.
The PMD680 has a suggested retail price of $1,499 and is now available from Marantz Professional authorized dealers.
