Archos Ondio 128 & Ondio FM Recorder Driver
After updating the firmware to 1. Archos Ondio 128 & Ondio FM Recorder things I want - one is to set default volume -- seems to be stuck on 17 and nowhere to change it - can change all base, treble, loudness, etc but not default volume every time you switch on -- back to Second thing, resume playback from power off -- doesn't happen - turn it off and when you turn back on, comes up with menu - always, then you select Browse, and start playback from scratch again -- bit of a pain, I say.
The dictaphone capability does seem good quality, and I tested in a few meetings this week and good feature is you can download the voice recordings to your PC so you could archive your meeting dialogue -- if allowed I guess.
Archos Ondio review: Archos Ondio - CNET
Yes, could do with recharge capability, backlight, better radio, etc, but for the money and if you use the features it has, worth the bucks. Once the cable is connected, navigate to the Ondio's Recorder section and double-click the power button to start recording.
When the tune is over, double-click the Mode button to stop; your MP3 will appear in the Ondio's file tree. Significantly, this device lets you adjust the gain of the incoming audio so that you can record a strong, clean signal without worrying about running out of headroom or adding harsh digital distortion to your recordings. Next time you connect the Archos Ondio 128 & Ondio FM Recorder to your PC, you can upload the recorded MP3s for archiving or distribution.
But the Ondio improves on iRiver's design by including a Retro Record feature, which can be activated in the Settings menu. When Retro Record is on, the Ondio adds to the recording the 30 seconds of FM radio that played before you double-clicked the power button to commence recording. What's so cool about this?
Well, if you miss recording the beginning of a song by less than 30 seconds, Retro Record solves the problem--quite impressive. You can also trim away any unwanted audio at the beginning or end of your new MP3 from within the device--again, no computer required. However, the editing process is somewhat tricky, and you'll need a few practice runs in order to perfect it.
Aside from its robust recording capability, the Ondio also does a fine job playing MP3s and playlists, though it does not support the WMA format.
A healthy number of playback customization options are available, so you can individually tweak levels for bass, treble, loudness, and bass boost on a scale of 1 to You'll also find the usual random and repeat modes, a hold feature, and a power-save mode that shuts down the Ondio after one minute of pause. The Ondio allows you to delete or rename files on the go and choose among six languages English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Dutch.
Like certain other portable playersthis Archos stores data files, so you can port documents from one computer to another. The screen is too small for lengthy texts, but the feature is fine for checking a grocery list or an address.
Archos supplies the rather short USB cable. Otherwise, getting music on the device is a breeze; since the player shows up as a drive in Windows Explorer, you can simply drag and drop files to the Ondio.
As Archos Ondio 128 & Ondio FM Recorder mentioned before, the Ondio gives you a great deal of control over sound quality; all audio files that we heard including those that we recorded ourselves sounded excellent, although we'd recommend swapping in a better set of headphones. Unlike some players that don't play loudly enough, the Ondio drove our test headphones at near-concussive volumes without distortion.
Unfortunately, Archos doesn't include a rechargeable battery, but three AAA batteries provide 7.
