If the size were no biggie, $579 Marantz PMD661 with 6.3-mm headphone output and RCA connectors for line output could be another avenue
This forum member as well as his spouse actually liked PMD661 more than HM-801 and others, LOL
Another thing about Nagra SD is really what they said before and obviously those copied+pasted answers originally in English should be opened for interpretation
Could you tell me whether the Nagra SD is designed by your compony and manufactured by Lotoo seperately or both designed and manufactured by Lotoo.
The Nagra SD is a product designed by Nagra and built in China. Every SD unit is individually tested and certified in our factory in Switzerland. The units come with a 2 year SWISS warranty and are supplied from Switzerland through our international distribution network.

Thanks for you explanation. I have another question, last time I saw the Nagra SD in one store, I found that there is not a sign, which show where it is made, for example "made in US" or "made in China", on the back of the recorder. Does it mean the product is a fake one or other reasons for it since most of my digital products have such signs?
No, it is not maked "made in..." As I told you, it is physically made in China for us, and some of our clients do not like products made in china so we have not written on it.
The back looked pretty clean and clear without stating where it was made in.
Sometimes I might wonder why putting the word China on a product would make such a huge difference while many of us are already buying tons of gadgets coming from that part of the world.
It is just nothing more than part of the "cut throat competition" reality when willing employees are paid to work (relatively ) long hours and employers are able to cut costs without hiring (costly) workers in other countries. Personally I am so grateful for our fellow Chinese workforce who somewhat "sacrificed" by leaving their families and contributed to the production of consumer electronics etc.
