this thing is great, well pleased,
This review is from: Sony ICDUX534FB UX Series 8GB Voice Recorder (Office Product)
this is a super compact digital recorder with good microphones, they are not condenser but they are highly sensitive. I also have the zoom h2n which is better for super high quality CD recording for music but this is good and the one I always take with me now. You can plug a seperate mic in if needed, the only thing i would say its not very good is the record level indicator, its basic and the zoom h2n is miles ahead, but this is the size of a flash drive almost. Charges off usb which is a bonus. Its everything I need.
fm radio on the 534F also which is one of the reasons why I bought it.
As a follow up Ive been comparing some recordings done on this and my galaxy S4 with ASR recorder app, and the galaxy mic seem to have far greater sensitivity than the sony even on high sensitivity. The recording seem to be much louder with the galaxy, still the sony is a decent compact recorder. But once again if you want super quality get the zoom h2n !
