Features

SUPERB STEREO QUALITY WITH TRUE STEREO MIC

With two directional microphones positioned in a 90 degree layout, expect a high quality recording for an authentic stereo experience. The directional microphones differentiate the position and the distance of the speakers in meetings and conferences. The quality of the recording allows you to feel as if you are actually in the recording scene.

VOICE BALANCER IMPROVES AUDIO PLAYBACK QUALITY

The Voice Balancer makes smaller voices louder when there are multiple speakers. This ensures that louder voices stay within a given level, allowing all voices to be heard. This comes in handy when recording sound sources from multiple positions. When the lower and higher frequencies are eliminated, the voice of the speakers are even more enhanced.

INTELLIGENT AUTO MODE AUTOMATICALLY ADJUSTS MICROPHONE SENSITIVITY

Previous models required users to adjust the microphone sensitivity to adapt to the recording environment. The new Intelligent Auto Mode function automatically adjusts the microphone sensitivity according to the volume of the speaker. Select Auto for the recording level from the menu to set this feature..

SIMPLE MODE, PERFECT FOR BEGINNERS

With two built-in display modes this recorder supports various user levels. The Simple Mode allows beginners to easily use the device by having the recorder display only the necessary information in large font. It limits the functions to those which are frequently used. For advanced users, full functionality is recommended in the Normal mode.

USB DIRECT CONNECTION – CABLE FREE.

Transfer data conveniently with the built-in USB connector. The USB connects to your PC or Mac to transfer recordings from the device to an external drive. The recorder has rechargeable batteries and is designed to charge the battery cells safely and efficiently.
