Marantz PMD-706 Six Channel Recorder?

Marantz is teasing a six XLR input recorder on their homepage. The image shifts, but a static view is here. Interesting...

The more options available to us the better!  I hope that this turns out to be as reliable as the 661...

Damn- Lots of stuff there. Who did Marantz buy and or who bought them that they have expanded so much into the DSLR gear-mics and recorders.? or have I just not noticed these products before because I don't do video?

When you get confused, listen to the music play!

I'm interested to see more on this. I don't really need it (XLR) but it could be great and compete with the 70d.

On a crazy side note, it will be interesting to me to see the XLR setup. If in pictures it seems like the layout is "backward"

You see 3,2,1    4,5,6
If 3,2,1 is one side, I would think the other side would go 6,5,4 and if it is the back then you would assume they would go in order.
It just seems that the way the image is set up that 3 and 4 are not "together" the way you would think
Mics - AKG ck61/ck63 (c480b & Naiant actives), SP-BMC-2
XLR Cables - Silver Path w/Darktrain stubbies
Interconnect Cables - Dogstar (XLR), Darktrain (RCA > 1/8) (1/8 > 1/8), and Kind Kables (1/8f > 1/4)
Preamps - Naiant Littlebox & Tinybox
Recorders - PCM-M10 & DR-60D

To me it looks like the inputs are on the sides.  The picture on the right is actually the left side and the picture on the left is actually the right side.  The face of the unit is cut off on each picture.

So attached to a tripod it would go (looking strait down):

    face
4           1
5           2
6           3
   back

Inputs 1-3 are marked L
Inputs 4-6 are marked R

So stereo pairs would be 1&4, 2&5 and 3&6. Weird.

I've had 2 Marantz recorders - a PMD670 and a PMD620. I liked them both. Great metering and rock solid. Never let me down.

I'm real interested in this deck. I'm seriously considering a Zoom F8 since the pres sound good and it had the wireless control surface but if the pres on this deck sound good and it's not crazy expensive I may give it a go once we get a look at the rest of it.

The pres on the 670 were total junk but once I got it modded by Busman it sounded incredible. The stock pres on this thing may be just fine - surface mount technology has come a long way. Someone will have to be the guinea pig though.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this deck!!  I've thought about the F4 and F8, but I'd rather not buy a Zoom product.

i was hesitant to buy a zoom product, until the moment i got the F8 in my hands. It just feels way more solidly built then i ever imagined

that being said, its overkill for me. Also my Marantz 671 was the most solid deck ive ever owned. the level meters appear to be better on the f8 from afar, but imho they were far superior to the f8. i could dial my levels in spot on with my 671 and barely need to adjust in post sometimes not even have to do that

I would buy another Marantz deck in a heartbeat! If there was an Oade mod, absolutely sold!

has anyone spoke to Doug to inquire to the possibility of a mod?
