Sony PCM-D100 - Features:

Crystal-Clear Sound
Prepare to be knocked out by the frequency response and overall sound quality made possible by this little recorder's high-resolution audio. The PCM-D100's strengths all start with this superior sound capability.

Adjustable Mics
When you're close to the sound source, adjust the PCM-D100's larger stereo microphones to 90° for a natural stereo image with depth. For orchestras and other recordings in large venues, set the two mics at 120° for realistic rich sounds with a feeling of broad openness.

Anti-Distortion Design
This portable recorder's "digital limiter" prevents sounds distortion, even in cases of excessive input, by automatically adjusting to the optimal level within the buffer range of -12dB.

Minimal Internal Noise
Internal noise is almost eliminated during AD conversions because of the digital limiter mechanism. Noise is minimized for soft sounds while maintaining the same amplitude as the source sound—sometimes achieving a S/N ratio up to 100dB.

Built-In Editing Capability
Edit on your computer or on the spot. Download the audio file to your computer and edit with the Sound Forge Audio Studio LE software that comes with your recorder. Or use the Divide and Combine functions to edit as you record.

User-Friendly Operation
Set up menu access the way you need it, assigning frequently used features to the F1/F2 buttons. Home/Option buttons also simplify navigation.

Super Bit Mapping
Sony's unique technology provides 20 bit levels of audio performance when recording 16 bits.

Dual Recording
Record in both PCM and MP3 simultaneously. Then email the MP3 while retaining the larger PCM file on your computer.

Wireless IR Remote Control
With two sensors on the IR receiver unit receiving signals from a wide range, it's simple to use your remote to control recording from a distance. The easy-to-see LED lets you know when recording has stopped—especially useful in a dark room or concert hall.

Cross-Memory Recording
If the internal memory or remaining memory in the memory card runs out during recording, you're covered—the PCM-D100 can automatically switch to the other memory device to continue recording seamlessly.

Choose from a variety of playback modes including DSD, FLAC, LPCM, MP3, WMA, and AAC-LC. Utilize playback features such as Up Sampling (PCM), Effects (PCM+ MP3), Digital Pitch Control (PCM + MP3), and Key Control (PCM + MP3).
