Used Court Reporting equipment
I have been a court reporter in the Los Angeles area for about 16 years. I have used in the past for many years my internal mic within my computer(s), they are okay, but don't pick up from afar. They just recently my mic jack went out and my computer guy told me to buy an external mic, which was a joke! I had to re-set it about four times to get it to work. So now "I'm movin' on up to the top" and buying the best. My girlfriend, colleague has the same digital recorder with the foot pedal and other things that come with it and just LOVES it. She says that she has to even turn the volume down when she listens to it to use it for transcribing. That's what I want! I've ordered from you guys years ago and, I think it was a desk top cassette recorder and the regular record that played the 120 minutes tapes, but I'm way over that. I don't want to mess with the tapes nor the batteries. And you can only use the tapes about four times and then they stretch and sometimes snap!!! No good. But for the most part it worked fine for years. I'm going for less equipment and trying to streamline my equipment. I can't wait to get my new digital recorder and try it. Thanks so, so much!

Almost too easy
I've been a court reporter for 38 years. Several years back I bought a Marantz cassette recorder from Martel. I plug in a headset to monitor the tape and also improve the hearing. since I'd had that for about 10 years, I looked into new technology, because cassettes are getting rare, and so are transcribers. So I bought this new digital recorder ... and it is blowing me away. the clarity of the sound is unbelievable, and the capacity of the flash memory frees you from worrying about having to watch for the end of the tape to turn it over. If you haven't upgraded in the last 5 years or so ... you really need to look into this recorder. You'll be amazed how it changes your reporting confidence. And it's so easy to use I sometimes wonder what I'm not doing that I should be.
