Subject: Microphone Question
From: Add Subtract (AddSubtract_at_webtv.net)
Date: 2003-04-26


Hi,

I'm looking to buy a Microphone for my new Archos Jukebox FM Recorder.
The built in mic is terrible and I'm a dunce about technical stuff like
this.

I keep reading where the Archos needs some kind of special microphone.
I tried one junky lapel type (with a battery and on/off switch) at Radio
Shack but it only recorded to the left channel (mono?) If it would have
recorded on the left and right I would have bought it.

I just want a semi decent microphone to record family history and also
be able to use the mic with a cassette recorder also.

Can anyone tell me if this particular Sony microphone will work well
with the Archos?

If not, does anyone know of another model of microphone similar in size
and style to this Sony?

Sony ECMDS70P

Info:

Features:

Unidirectional Electret Condenser stereo mic with clip, plug-in power
operation
Uni-directional Stereo

Also:

If built-in microphones aren't cutting it, pick up Sony's ECM-DS70P.
This stereo microphone gives you increased audio quality when recording
onto digital media, such as MiniDisc, DAT, & NT. Also, it's small size
and light weight makes it easy to take with you.
Plug-In Power Operation that requires no batteries
Uni-directional Stereo
Direct Connection to Recorder
Reliable Electret Condenser Technology
Gold Plated Plug
Color: Gray
Includes: 3.3ft. microphone cord and clip
Weight: 3/8oz.

------------

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.
