SANYO, a leading company in providing eco-friendly energy, environment and lifestyle applications, has announced the Middle East launch of its latest sound recorder, the Xacti ICR-XPS01MF—the world’s slimmest and lightest audio recording device. The new audio device features a Linear PCM recording mode that allows users to produce excellent sound recordings comparable to high-quality audio CDs. The Xacti ICR XPS01MF reflects SANYO’s long years of experience in the audio recording and playback segment and reinforces the company’s commitment to synergize its core technologies to create solutions towards a sustainable earth.
Bundled with a cradle active speaker and a 2GB micro SD card, the Xacti ICR XPS01MF is powered by a slim large-capacity lithium-ion battery and also features an easy-to-use touch sensor display for smooth operation. At just 46 grams and 9.4 millimetres thick, the ICR XPS01MF weighs about five per cent less and is 28 per cent less thick than other previous SANYO recording models. The unit also features three microphone settings: meetings/lecture, dictation, and music mode, while recorded audio can be stored directly to the attached microSD card.
A special noise reduction filter allows users to block out unwanted ambient noise like the wind or sound of an air-conditioner. Aside from recording in Linear PCM mode, the ICR XPS01MF can also record in MP3 format. An additional manual recording mode and an auto recording mode has also been added to give users more flexibility in trying to capture real-life audio.
Takeshi Hirao, Vice President of SANYO Electric Co. Japan and Chairman, SANYO Gulf, said, “Consumers in the Middle East have been seeking audio recording devices that can deliver high-quality sound recordings and is lightweight and convenient to carry as well. SANYO is catering to this demand with the release of the Xacti ICR XPS01MF, the world’s slimmest and lightest sound recorder. Music professionals and enthusiasts or those who need a high-quality recorder for events like lectures and conferences will be impressed with the features packed into this compact and stylish unit.”
Recordings from the Xacti ICR XPS01MF's internal memory or microSD card can easily be transferred to a PC without affecting sound quality. The unit also includes other features like a song information display for quick and easy searching of files, clear voice function and an automatic recording separation function. The ICR XPS01MF has a built-in FM tuner and is compatible with MP3 and WMA files, allowing users to enjoy the unit as a personal audio device.
