Remember It All With Digital Voice Recorders
It's all in the details, and those can be hard to remember. For those easy-to-forget schedules, appointments, detailed requests or lengthy lectures, Sony Electronics is unveiling its latest selection of digital voice recorders.
"Our 2006 line of voice recorders offer a myriad of options for personal, professional or academic use," said Jim Calverley, product manager at Sony Electronics.
Voice Plus: From Memos to Music
The ICD-U50, U60 and U70 "Voice Plus" digital voice recorders all feature an advanced voice/MP3/storage all-in-one solution. The new models feature storage capacities of up to 1 GB and up to 502 hours of voice recording time in LP mode as well as the ability to play back MP3s.
The digital voice recorder models are all USB compatible for high-speed file transfer to a PC, and provide three separate recording modes. The three models are available this spring for about $100, $130 and $180, respectively.
Speak and Spell
Slim and light, the ICD-SX46 and SX46VTP models have up to 128 MB of storage providing up to 47 hours of recording time in LP mode and the capacity to store about 30 MP3s. With a stylish, ultra-slim aluminum body, these recorders can easily slip into a pocket or purse. Both models come with a USB port for high-speed file transfer to a PC.
Also on both models, digital voice operated recording software stops the recording during silent pauses and then -- without missing a syllable -- reactivates it when speaking resumes. The ICD-SX46 recorder is compatible with Nuance® Dragon NaturallySpeaking® voice-to-print software. The ICD-SX46VTP model is bundled with this industry-leading voice recognition application to turn fleeting thoughts into electronic memos in no time.
The ICD-SX46 and ICD-SX46VTP models will be available this month for about $150 and $200, respectively.
On the Record and on the Radio
The ICD-P330F and ICD-P320 voice recorders are compact, PC link voice recorders. Up to 64 MB of flash memory offer up to 32 hours of recording time in LP mode, and there is a USB port for easy file transfer to a PC. Both models are compatible with Dragon NaturallySpeaking voice-to-print software and the ICD-P330F recorder incorporates a built-in FM tuner with 25 presets.
The ICD-P320 and the ICD-P330F recorders will be available this month for about $60 and $70, respectively.
The ICD-B310F and ICD-B300 voice recorders are non-PC recorders with 64 MB of flash memory and up to 37 hours of recording time in LP mode. A large LCD, single function buttons on the front and 250mW speaker output offers comprehensive recording capabilities in any situation. The ICD-B310F recorder also incorporates a built-in FM tuner with 25 presets.
The ICD-B300 and the ICD-B310F come packaged with two "AAA" batteries and will be available this month for about $40 and $50, respectively.
