can't wait to see what this unit is all about. I'm going to email Doug right now to see what he knows about this unit.

Could be a dud though, guess we'll have to wait and find out.

^ Well, I'll be damned!  Only ~ 8 months after the original post...

I am very curious to hear if Doug has any information about this.  Still nothing popping up in a web search (except this thread).

$299 street.  If that is real, it is pretty inexpensive in the context of multichannel recorders.

Yeah, $299 street seems to be too inexpensive when the two channel, PMD661 series is selling for around $500 street...  I do like having multiple options though.

Not going to hang my hat on that price B&H lists being final, but the price point sits squarely in the R26, DR70, and Zoom H6 camp. DSLR users that are  mostly hobbyists are more likely to go that way than the Mixpre 6.I agree it's odd that the PMD661 sells for $600, but that's the direction the whole line seems to be heading in,  the 561 and new 661mkIII being lower priced than the decks being replaced by them. I'll be keeping in touch with Doug as the summer goes along and find out what this 6 channel unit is about. Cool to have options besides the ones I listed at that same price point. The Mixpre, like everything else SD makes, is in a league of it's own.

Yes, Doug is going to let me know his thoughts soon as he gets one from Marantz to test out. Expecting this will happen in August but as soon as I hear from him, I'll pass along whatever update info he gives.

^ Interesting.  Thanks for posting that.  It looks completely different than the initial teaser photos, which showed six XLR inputs, three per side, on a considerably thinner chassis.

^^^ it won't matter....trump just signed an executive order effectively banning free trade of the marantz 706 across the Mexican border only.  Language was vague but it clearly seemed to be aimed at preventing ex-pats from obtaining quality gear at low American prices.  You can always come stay with me, buy one and then smuggle it back.
