The three microphone system TRESMIC is built into this recorder. This system combines high-performance stereo microphones with a centre microphone that covers the low frequencies, enabling recording across a wide frequency range, with exceptionally good balance. The recording of natural, spacious stereo sound is made possible by placing the stereo microphones angled outward at 90 degrees.
TRESMIC featuring a total of three microphones has a centre microphone that covers the low frequency range in addition to two high-performance stereo microphones. A recording frequency range of 70Hz to 20,000Hz is achieved with two microphones, but employing the three-microphone system TRESMIC results in a recording frequency range of 20Hz to 20,000Hz. This enables recording with an excellent balance.
To get the most out of basic performance, frequency response and directional characteristics, an emphasis was placed on the size of the microphone casings and the shape of openings. The 90-degree outward-facing microphone units on the left and right achieve a stereo sound with a natural ambience.
The control system and audio system boards have been separated to reduce interference noise.
This recorder employs the latest version of the Wolfson sound engine (codec). Specifically developed for portable devices, it has a proven track record in the world of premium audio equipment. This latest technology has dramatically improved sound reproduction, enabling faithful recording and playback of sound, across a broad range of frequencies.
Different recording formats can be selected according to purpose. Support is included for the non-compression linear PCM format as well as the MP3 and WMA formats.
In addition to 4GB of internal memory, the recorder also has a microSD card slot. This allows you greater capacity to save, depending on the application.
The noise cancellation function removes background noise, making voice recordings easier to hear during playback.
You can play back voice files at different speeds without affecting the pitch or play back one section repeatedly.
The latest EUPHONY MOBILE surround system achieves more realistic sound, excelling at the creation of creating natural uncompressed sound. This is sound that is easy for listeners to absorb, preventing stress or strain whilst listening to inferior sound file formats. You can set EUPHONY to restore and expand sound that has been compressed and degraded for purposes such as downloading. You can enjoy sound close to the original because of the well balanced supplementation of high frequencies and the rich extending the low frequencies.
You can delete unnecessary parts from files and divide files.
If you add index marks to a file, you will be able to quickly find the places you want to hear with fast-forward and rewind or the file skip operation.
This convenient feature gives audio announcements of recorder operating conditions.

You can conveniently recharge the battery by connecting the recorder to the USB port of a PC.
You can use the dedicated remote control RS30W (sold separately) to start and stop recording remotely.
Recording settings that match the recording scene or conditions can be selected by holding down the menu button and then selecting from the Lecture, Conference, Business meetings, and Dictation templates. What's more, you can save up to three recording scenes customised according to purpose.
A filter cuts the low and high frequencies to clearly emphasise your target voice making it is easy to hear during playback. You are also able to adjust playback speed, enabling you to listen to recordings quickly or slowly if required.
