3-Element Microphone
The 3-element microphone array features adjustable sensitivity and zoom functionality
Dual AD Convertors
The dual analog to digital converters work in tandem to deliver wider dynamic range with minimized distortion. They are capable of resolutions up to 24-bit/96kHz. The result is recordings that capture everything from the quietest whisper to the loudest noise in the room and all things in between
S-MASTER Digital Amplification
S-Master digital amplification faithfully reproduces your recordings, including 192kHz/24-bit resolution files
Memory Card Expansion Slot
A built-in Memory Card Expansion Slot (microSD/M2) allows for additional recording time via removable flash memory. It can also be used to transfer recordings to a computer. Thanks to the cross-memory recording feature, the recorder can automatically extend a recording from the built-in flash memory to the micro SD card to avoid interruption
Automatic/Manual Record Level
The recorder can be configured to automatically adjust recording levels for optimum results, or when necessary allow for manual control. In manual mode, a Limiter Function prevents recording distortion from loud sounds
Pre-Record Mode
Pre-Record mode, when activated, buffers sound for five seconds prior to the moment when the Record key is depressed so you never miss a word or note
Built-In Lithium-Ion Battery
A built-in rechargeable battery delivers up to 19 hours of recording time

      Comments about Sony ICD-SX1000 Digital Flash Voice Recorder:

      Great recorder, easy to navigate menu, high quality audio settings. Sadly, it has a built in battery. For event work, it's a no go for me, but I do love the device.
