Product Specifications

Sony's M-560V Pressman Microcassette Recorder takes the notes for you. Bring it to your meetings, interviews, and classes - the voice-operated recording activates the recorder only when audible sound is present, conserving tape and eliminating soundless passages. In addition, 1 cassette and 2 batteries are included for your convenience. Features include a record/battery indicator with a Voice Mirror, 30-hour battery life, the "Clear Voice Plus" Recording System, which provides greater clarity during recording and playback, and a 3-digit tape counter. Play and record operation is also made easy with one-touch recording. Get all the facts on tape with the M-560V.
