 I've talked with Marantz about this device. It does exist and is not just in
 beta-test.  It is actually in production now and the first units should
 start shipping in March.  A few other features that the 671 has over the 670
 are: larger sample rate selection (down to lower frequencies than 670),
 "virtual 3-head" so you can monitor while you record, ability to play back
 previously recorded section while still recording, and I believe that it has
 editing capabilities onboard.  It will cost more than the PMD670

 This device is a good low-cost option for high-resolution recordings since
 it samples at 24-bits. It records to compact flash cards.  Unfortunately, it
 will only record in stereo, so half the memory is thrown away when recording
 with a single microphone/hydrophone.

 This device actually records to an internal 40GB hard drive. Therefore,
 recording times are can be very long. It has EQ and editing capability

 The FR-2 also records to PCMCIA flash disks, which have a higher memory
 capacity than the compact flash cards.
 Happy recording!
