In fact, the unit supposedly boasts 280 hours of recording time in LP mode. Unfortunately, the ICD-BX700 lacks many wanted features, including PC connectivity, a correction mode, and digital pitch control. For greater versatility, the ICD-BM1B is recommended. However, the Sony ICD-BX700 is an optimal choice for professionals seeking a quick and inexpensive solution for keeping track of thoughts, notes, and ideas.
