Radio or any other technical info : the browser will answer you !

I don't use a mike (no field recording). Maybe somebody else ?

The big problem with standard mikes is they will require power and there isn't much coming out of the MD.

1. The Sony "typical" ECM-DS70P - $30 if you look on Amazon. No power required.

2. ECMMS907 - A step up but takes an AA battery inside it (weight!)

3. Binaural BMC-SP2 or their equivalent. Great for concerts where they look a lot like earphones. No power.

4. Build yourself a battery box and use any mic that it will work with, and LINE IN. This is a trick for MD units with no microphone socket but you may find it helpful depending on your application.

You probably don't want to exercise the option of putting it straight in the MD, the retail version should come with a short cable (3.5mm F->M extension). I don't need to tell you how careful you have to be with the choice of cable:

1. Light and flexible enough so that it's difficult to jerk the jack strongly, thereby breaking it

2. Perfect conductivity - ie gold plated connectors.

Time to put this in another thread.

No.

Not particularly the RH1, it's the last in a long line of MDs. You might want to see if you can find a USB cable with a very flat profile that will allow you to connect it to USB and still be flat on the table. They exist but are hard to find.

Batteries are a problem. Learn the best strategy for caring for your Li-Ion battery. Try to order a spare one soon; and keep it charged (about 60% is the recommendation).
