MARANTZ PROFESSIONAL PMD660
AWARDED TOP HONORS AT NAB2005

Stuff” designation —
ITASCA, IL, May 10, 2005 — D&M Professional,
manufacturer of the renowned Marantz Professional PMD series of professional
recording products, announces that its PMD660 Compact Digital Recorder
earned great acclaim at this year’s NAB Convention. The Marantz
PMD660 unit was awarded top honors by two leading industry publications,
Radio magazine and Radio World newspaper.
The Radio magazine Pick Hits awards, which were instituted
in 1985 to honor major technological innovations, recognized the PMD660
as a hands-down winner. Pick Hits judges look for the best new products
introduced at the convention, and then gather to select the top 15.
The judges act independently and anonymously, and the Radio magazine
staff has no vote in the selection process.
The PMD660 won another prestigious technology honor, the
“Cool Stuff” Award, presented by the editorial staff of
Radio World newspaper. The Radio World “Cool Stuff” Award
means a product was selected by a panel of engineers and industry journalists
as notable for its design, features, cost efficiency and performance
in serving radio users.
The Marantz PMD660 Compact Digital Recorder is a rugged,
“hand-held” unit with easy one-touch digital recording using
cost-effective Compact Flash media cards. Featuring solid-state design,
the PMD660 has no moving parts, and is therefore more reliable than
cassette, DAT, or other tape/disc formats. The PMD660 has stereo built-in
condenser microphones with Automatic Level Control and is ideal for
field recording applications.
