Philips DVT6500/00 overview

  • 1Description

The DVT6500 Voice Tracer with 3Mic Recording from Philips is a digital voice recorder that features a 3-microphone system with an integrated motion sensor that adjusts the microphones' sensitivity depending on the scenario. It is capable of recording MP3 or PCM files, and has 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded by 32GB via its MicroSD slot. The recorder features a built-in rechargeable battery, and it is plug and play compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux computers.

3Mic Recording
Several components are needed to record music as naturally as possible in CD-like audio quality: high signal-to-noise ratio, highly dynamic microphones to capture soft tones as well as loud drums, a high-quality microphone suspension to avoid pickup of grip noise, a strong left and right channel separation for human ear live-like effect
MP3 Recording
Capture your recordings in MP3. The popular file format allows you to play back your files virtually anywhere and simply share them with others
Internal Battery
The high-capacity lithium-ion polymer battery can be charged through a standard micro-USB jack. This guarantees extended battery life for recording
Motion Sensor
The built-in motion sensor detects the recorder when it is placed on a desk or held and selects the microphone sensitivity to suit the recording situation, preventing you from accidentally blocking the audio you want to record
Color Display
The large color display offers sharp images, allowing you to see and read everything at first glance. The user interface supports eight languages and is optimized for intuitive operation
Thanks to plug and play operation in Windows, Mac OS, and Linux, you can access your recordings without installing any additional software. The recorder is automatically displayed as a removable drive once connected to your computer via USB. It can also be used to store, back up, and share files
Pre-Recording Function
The pre-recording function allows you to record the last five seconds before you press the record key. The device switches into a standby mode and records a five-second loop without saving it. Press the record key to save the five-second loop. This feature allows you to spontaneously record important parts of a conversation
Wireless Remote Control
The included wireless remote control enables convenient placement of the recorder to best meet the needs of the audio environment while maintaining ease of operation. Start, pause, and stop recording, without having to reach over things
4 GB Internal Memory
Capture and store up to 44 days of continuous recording thanks to the 4GB of internal memory
MicroSD Memory Card Slot
Expanded recording and storage capacity thanks to a microSD memory card slot supporting up to 32GB of additional memory
Metal Design
Its lightweight design features a metal surface that creates a robust shell around the device. With the integrated fold-out stand you can position the recorder towards the sound source. Two ergonomically placed soft keys allow for convenient, quick and direct access to the most important functions
Line-In Jack
Connect the recorder with the included line-in cable to record from external sound sources

    Philips DVT6500/00 reviews

    DVT6500 Voice Tracer with 3Mic Recording is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still learning but am impressed I just received this device and am still learning how to use it. It seems pretty simple and rugged. Fits in your pocket. Seems to record well, though only from what I've heard on the internal speaker, the weakest part. Still, I recommend this for someone wanting portability and doesn't want to pay more for a Tascam or Zoom.
    Date published: 2015-01-23
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so great as I thought it would be. Somehow I thought it would pick up near and far (in a small room) audio, as in a circle discussion. Not so great. Microphone pickup is limited -- too soft or too loud (distortion). If I could exchange it, I would. Also, the Ruggard case that B&H recommends/suggests does not fit the recorder. I NEVER have anything bad to say about my dealings with B&H, but this is the exception.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK Seems to work well right out of the box, though some of the manual instructions are a bit obtuse. Wish it were a bit studier construction.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quilty recordings. Very sensitive. Very good for lecture recording. I like the feature that you can record from the radio station.
    Date published: 2017-01-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than most, but has a few flaws I also have Tascam DR-08, Olympus DM-620, and Olympus LS-7 recorders. I use these recorders mainly in the "timer record" mode to record radio programs. Most portable recorders do not have a "timer record" mode but the Philips does as do the other three I have. The Philips has some features not present in the other models. The Philips will play almost any MP3 file, including those not recorded at 44.1 or 48 kHz sampling rates. It has an FM radio. Timer recordings can be made from the FM radio. Its external microphone input can also be set for line level audio. It has an acceleration sensor used to "wake up" the display when you pick up the recorder. The display is color and looks much better than the other models I have. Now for the negatives. The Philips has an inaccessible, non-replaceable battery. I wish it used standard AAA NiMH cells instead. In my case, I use the recorder powered (via micro USB) most of the time. But still the battery is the most failure prone component in the recorder, and it can't be replaced by the user. There is also a limit of 999 music (MP3) files. That's not enough to hold my music library (about 1500 files). It does have a shuffle mode. Another negative is that recordings cannot be set to monophonic. For a 4 hour recording in WAV format, that means your audio files will be split in two because of WAV file size limitations. At first I could not get the unit to make timer recordings while powered from micro USB. Then I discovered that you first connect it to a power source, and then turn it on. So it can make 4 hour timer recordings with external power, which makes the nonreplaceable battery problem less offensive. The FM radio is not very sensitive. It's good for reception of local stations only. It uses the headphone wire as the antenna, so you must have headphones plugged in to use the radio or to record from it.
