Subject: RE: Field Recording... Yourself
Anybody familiar with the Marantz PMD660?   I know a couple of people who have them and claim they're excellent.

The PMD660 records on flashcards, like a digital camera and can be downloaded to computer with a USB connection. It has two XLR mic inputs and phantom power, and they say that with a couple of halfway decent mics rather than the inbuilt ones, you're getting pretty darn close to studio quality, all set to feed through your editing software. They are a bit pricy compared to some. They run about $500.

I'm thinkin'. . . .
