Olympus DP-211 Digital Voice Recorder


Aimed at analogue tape users yet to make the switch to digital recording and coming some 40 years after Olympus launched the first ever microcassette in 1969, the affordable DP-211 is designed for simple stand-alone computer-free operation. Offering a familiar design without complicated external file downloads or fiddly extra memory, it delivers superior sound that won’t deteriorate over the years and sufficient storage space for countless recordings. Useful for everything from recording a child’s recital to notes to self, lovers of classic tape recorders will further appreciate the full-sized speaker for audio playback, basic functions controlled via three big buttons, plus easy to read display and excellent battery life. Users only need to glance down to tell how much recording capacity and power they have left. Plus the digital DP-211 is naturally much smaller, lighter and less trouble to transport and put to use than its analogue equivalent at dimensions of 95x50x18.2mm. Easy to navigate Calendar Search system A convenient feature of the DP-211 that makes finding sound files just as intuitive as with analogue tape. Instead of navigating endless folders as one would on a computer, users can store files by date and retrieve them in three short steps using Calendar Search. Simply push the ‘Date’ button on the side of the device, pick out the date on the big LCD screen and select the file listed for that date. Digital sound recording Olympus brings its knowledge of superior sound to the fore, ensuring sound quality in excess of a typical analogue device. Menu languages include English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Polish. Large operational buttons Instead of the five or six button arrangement of a standard digital recorder, the DP-211’s front panel brilliantly takes things back to basics in featuring the same three large buttons that will be immediately familiar to analogue lovers: ‘play’, ‘stop’ and ‘record’. Easy to read screen The DP-211’s full dot 1.78-inch LCD makes arching and picking out files a simple process. The big display allows space for extra large font size, big icons and clear status bars – a quick glance at the screen is all that’s required when your attention is otherwise elsewhere. Practical, time saving controls Unlike on many digital recorders, where users have to scroll through multiple menu layers via the LCD to access key features such as ‘Play Speed’ and ‘Erase’, with the DP-211 these are controlled quickly and easily via side-mounted switches. Extra-large speaker Enjoy the warmth and expansive natural sound that comes from an extra-large 36mm speaker when playing back sound files. The tone remains consistent no matter which playback speed is chosen, which obviously wouldn’t be possible with an analogue recorder. Uncomplicated recording settings There is a simple choice of recording settings with the DP-211: noise cancellation on/off, microphone sensitivity high or low, and high or standard quality audio (HQ or SP). Whichever option is chosen the result is crystal clear sound, whether recording the school play or a chat over the kitchen table. 80 hours battery life, 2GB of memory Another advantage over analogue predecessors: the DP-211 boasts 80 hours of recording time from common use 2x AAA alkaline batteries and a generous 2GB of memory which holds up to 202 hours of recordings in standard quality.
