Kenwood's latest recorder.

A clone of the Sharp MD-MS701.

The DMC-J7R comes in two colours, the silver one pictured first and the very handsome all-black version. . The silver isn't by any means a crow, as The Master said, but black means it is more than a gadget: it is a Gadget.

The package contains: machine, headphones, LCD remote, soft bag, warranty (claims in Japan only) manual with NO English section, (use the photocopy of the MD-MS701 manual which we send you for free), rechargeable Li Ion battery, 100V AC to 5VDC transformer, dry cell battery case

The red Record button does not light up - it just looks as if it does.

Sampling Rate 44.1kHz. 24 bit (Sharp 5) ATRAC. Acoustic Range 20-20,000 Hz (+/- 3dB).

Wow and Flutter +/- 0.001%W

Out ports: headphone/remote control

Now, for those of you who have to have it black... I am sorry the photos do not do it justice.
