Product Specifications

Sony Corporation is proud to introduce its TCM-50DV Pressman Auto Reverse Portable Cassette Recorder. Auto Reverse provides uninterrupted recording and playback of both cassette sides, with no need to turn tape over. Double Recording Time gives you the option of recording on a standard cassette at either normal speed or half the normal speed, for extended recording or dictation sessions. Clear Voice sound system enhances voice quality during recording and playback for greater clarity. Flat Microphone provides convenient recording versatility in various situations. Voice Operated Recording (VOR) activates the recorder only when audible sound is present, conserving tape and eliminating soundless passages. Playback Speed Control lets you adjust playback speed faster or slower than normal, for easier review and editing of recorded information. 3 LED Battery Level Warning System confirms battery level and alerts the user of low battery power with a flashing amber LED. 3-Digit Tape Counter makes it easy to find a specific location on the tape for rapid access and editing. Metal Lid provides added durability. Carrying Strap is a secure, convenient way to transport the unit. Microphone Jack allows connection of an external microphone.
