Interesting news that the 661 is headed for a third iteration.  The 661 is a great recorder!  I have an original 661 and a 661MKII.  Rather than investing in a 661 MKIII, I am still holding out hope for a PMD-706 Six Channel Recorder...

Am I missing something...this looks exactly like the PMD561? AH I see it now "S/PDIF Digital Input for connection to other audio equipment" and one hour longer on a set of batteries..


I'm with you dactylus...bring on the PMD-706

In the stated information, I didn't see any mention of a digital input on the 661mkIII.

I looked at both manuals the PMD 561, and the PMD 661 MKIII, and while I only skimmed it, it appears the only difference is that the PMD 661 MKIII has the encrypted recording capacity. A few pages were arranged differently, but that was all I saw that differentiated the 2 models. They both have the same S/PDIF bit bucket ability.

Pity they're not following Zoom's lead and making something like the F4/F8
