More exciting, though, is that record button. Our scant press release seems to suggest that hitting that while listening to FM radio, DAB, CD or an Aux source, will send the audio back down the USB connection for recording. Presumably to do so you’ll need an encoding MP3 player with a line-in, but the whole idea is very intriguing. </p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/tv-and-hi-fi/stuff/teac-hi-fi-has-hi-tech-feature </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/teac/teac-hi-fi-has-hi-tech-feature/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/teac/teac-hi-fi-has-hi-tech-feature/news#comments CR-H255 TEAC Tue, 13 Sep 2005 05:00:00 +0000 admin 541 at http://www.stuff.tv
