Default Zen Stone Plus Recording

Has anyone used Zen Stone Plus for lecture recording? I have a few questions about its recording capability.

1. How's the recording quality?

2. What format is the recorded file? How big is the file for a minute of recording?

3. Is there a limit for each file?

I tried to find the info from the company's site. Unfortunately, the only manual I found doesn't say much about recording. Thanks.

Welcome y168.

From the Zen Stone Plus Review:

Quote:
The voice recorder of the old Stone Plus was very weak, and that is true also with that of the Stone Plus Speaker. That is particularly disappointing with the new version seeing that the speaker would make the voice recording feature more useful than on other players. After trying the recorder in a lecture however I found that there is no way it can be used with the speaker (or headphones for that matter) without first going through a volume boost, as the lecturer's voice was very low and difficult to hear even if he wasn't standing that far from the microphone.

See quote above.

Quote:
2. What format is the recorded file?
IMA ADPCM (WAV) format/sampling rate of 8 KHz/bitrate of 32 Kbit/s.

3. Is there a limit for each file?
I believe 10 hours is the max recording duration time.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for you input. I am getting a Sansa E250 instead. I heard that the recording is better on E250.
