The Marantz PMD 661MKII Super MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using very high speed, very low noise and super low distortion op amps that dramatically improve low level detail and clarity. Super low THD+N op amps allow for a very wide SFDR even with signal levels down 50dB. This preserves the signal quality of the highest grade microphones when recording soft signals, like voice, un amplified music, nature sounds and FX. The Super MOD is the 661 upgrade of choice for filmmakers as it's audio qualities allow for more post production while maintaining the clarity and detail needed for optimal playback on typical audio systems used for video.
The Marantz PMD 661MKII FET MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using very high speed, very low noise and low distortion FET op amps that dramatically improve low level detail and clarity. Very low THD+N op amps allow for a very wide SFDR even with signal levels down 50dB. The warmth of the FET microphone preamp allows for a more natural vocal tone when using highly directional mics, like a shotgun mic. The very low noise is perfect when recording soft signals, like voice, un amplified music, nature sounds and FX. Our first choice for use with dynamic interview microphones. The FET upgrade has an impressive 3D stereo image, ideal for stereo nature recording !

The Marantz PMD 661MKII Concert MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using high speed, low noise and very low distortion op amps that dramatically improve fine detail and clarity. The result is a very detailed, open 3D soundstage. Components are selected by ear to optimize detail and imaging for recording all types of music where transparency is needed.
The Marantz PMD 661MKII Warm MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using high speed, low noise and very low distortion FET op amps that dramatically improve fine detail and clarity. the Warm MODs preamp chips use FETs so they sound very much like a tube preamp with the warm sound that offers a fat rounded bass tone, a sweet silky high end and the expansive soundstage found in high end tube circuits. Components are selected by ear to optimize detail and imaging for recording all types of music when a warm tone is needed.

Superscope PMR61 Recorder
Excellent sound quality and easy to use !
Audio recording of meeting and conferences, and events such as music performances, has been a constant in the professional world for decades. Regardless of the purpose of these recordings, everyone benefits from a reliable, accurate, clear recording that is easily referenced, distributed, and transcribed.
Enter the Superscope PMR61 Professional Meeting Recorder. A brand synonymous with professional audio recording, Superscope has created professional audio devices for more than five decades. The PMR61 is the next generation, and possibly the world's smartest digital audio recorder.
Simple Design and Operation
The PMR61 is clearly a different type of recorder. Its uncluttered, non-technical design is comfortable in any meeting, interview or conference room, while still compact enough to fit in a briefcase or backpack. However, easy operation is the key to the PMR61 design. Users will immediately recognize the lack of buttons and switches that often introduce risk into the recording process.
With a simple top panel layout consisting of only four buttons, the user has little opportunity for error. All critical setup functions are included in the touch screen menu, which not only gives immediate status during recording, but also allows for easy setup, navigation, and operation.
