Old New

I was glad to see the mail courier today. No bills this time, but a new toy.

Well, that’s not really true. Old toy? New old toy? Or even an old new one. It’s definitely a used one. Bought it last week on an internet auction site.

I’ve been searching for a recording device last weeks. Creative’s Zen and MuVo popped up, as well as the iRiver family. Always the same story: great mp3 device, but poor recording capabilities.

Luc referred to this review on Cnet. Interestingly enough (the product is obsolete) all other sources I checked also pointed to this NOMAD Jukebox 3 as the best voice recorder.

Using the analog-in or digital-in connections, you can record straight to the unit’s hard drive from a variety of sources, including a powered mike. You can choose to record files as uncompressed WAVs or as MP3s compressed at bit rates of 128Kbps to 320Kbps. (Cnet review)

The nice thing is the extra 20 GB storage device I get, but that didn’t play a role in my decision to go for this player.

My next buy this week will be a portable digital microphone. And then I’m ready for my kick off as local podstar. Hehe.
