I-River MP3 Recorder

The IFP-590T is an MP3 recorder from the Korean company Iriver. This model looks interesting because it can accept inputs from an external source – which could be a microphone provided it is boosted to line-level. I like the fact that you can vary the quality of the recording between 8 and 324 kb/sec, so from telephone quality right up to serious hi-fi. In the UK the model is listed at around 134 pounds sterling. See Maycom listing below for the Mic-tube which would also work with this recorder. The English language manual for this recorder is here. I am not so keen on the more expensive models because the cameras are poor, compared to separate camera/mp3 combinations – 0.3 Megapixels is worthless for the journalist.  Posted by Hello
