Sony’s TCM-200DV is a cassette tape voice recorder that's full of handy features for recording and playback. It's perfect dictation, taking notes or recording thoughts and offers fantastic value for money.
Audio can be recorded using either the built-in microphone or by connecting an external one. You can choose to record on to a standard cassette at either normal speed or at half the normal speed - ideal for dictation sessions.
The recorder features a Clear Voice recording system that enhances the quality of audio both during recording and playback to ensure greater clarity. In addition Sony-Matic Automatic recording level control keeps sound levels correct so that audio stays consistent and audible.
A handy voice operated recording mode starts recording whenever audio is detected and there is also one touch record that lets you record at any point during playback.
You can playback recordings either via the large built-in speaker or by connecting headphones. The Cue and review function plays audio as you fast forward and rewind, making it easier to find a specific point in your recordings. You can also control playback speed and increase it by up to +30% or decrease it by up to -15%.
Power comes from 2 AA batteries and these provide around 25 hours of battery life. There is also a handy LED battery life indicator and DC input for power using an adaptor and mains power.
The 200DV's Automatic Shut-Off at End of Tape lets you know when you have reached the end of the tape and so helps reduce mechanical wear and battery consumption.
