Sony Digital Voice Recorder ICD-UX543F

Sony recently opened its largest flagship store in Southeast Asia [1] at 313@Somerset [2] #02-28 to 37 (directly opposite Starbucks). It occupies 9,902 square feet (920sqm) of floor area and its opening hours are from 10am to 10pm daily.

As a Sony member [3], we are given S$50 to spend at that store and surprisingly when I went there, there is nothing interesting for me to buy. Instead it is my mom who used the voucher and bought the Sony Digital Voice Recorder – ICD-UX543F [4] for S$189 so that she can record meeting minutes.

She chose the Blue because the Black is out of stock. It comes with a 4GB internal memory and you can expand the memory with a MicroSD card. It records stereo audio by default in 192kbps or 128kbps MP3. If you want higher quality, you can record in LPCM [5]. It comes with a built-in USB so that you can charge the recorder and transfer the recorded audio to your computer without the need of any USB cable.

It comes with a built-in microphone (duh!) and supports external microphone though it’s Mic-In Jack.
