oh yes it can record in stereo from either the two built in mics or from an external microphone. on the fly you can do the following. Track insertion and deletion, precise audio editing, and set the recording mode or length of recording time up to 5 hours and 20 minutes. , You can also advance through a recording either track by track, minute by minute, or with a scan search. You can get up to 5 hours and 20 minutes of recording time and the list goes on. I know you can get the machine from irti.net, Sales - 800-322-4784 minidisco.com 1-877-6376268 or from etronics.com. I love this machine. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Neal Ewers" <neal.ewers@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <blindcooltech@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Thursday, March 09, 2006 9:07 AM Subject: [bct] Re: Sony MZB100 review Don, is this unit still available? If so, from where. Someone did a podcast on this earlier and I thought someone said just the other day that it did not record in stereo. Perhaps what they said is that the microphone didn't record in stereo. Can this be done?

We all love pod casting devices but this recorder has many uses for the blind. It is the only adequate replacement for the APH recorder in my opinion. In this review I will look at this recorder in terms of accessibility for the high-tech as well as the low-tech person. I will compare the MZB100 to a cassette recorder and show how easy it is to use. When I am through I hope you will want this recorder for it's many benefits including Nature recording, note taking, and recordings of reminders and meetings. I have even recorded music sessions with it. The fact that you can buy the storage media for a dollar a disc is also nice. I will try to make this review fun with some of the many recordings I have made with it over the past several years.
