You may have noticed this new acronym popping up on some of our products. RoHS stands for Restrictions on Hazardous Substances, and it's a directive that could have a huge impact on the production and disposal of consumer electronics. First adopted in Europe in 2006 (and later adopted in California in 2007), RoHS restricts the use of six dangerous substances in lots of common electronics. According to the official RoHS compliance Web site (www.rohs.eu), the RoHS symbol indicates that "new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain any of the six banned substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, poly-brominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), in quantities exceeding maximum concentration values."
While some military and medical equipment is exempt from RoHS compliance, the electronics governed by the standard are among the most common you'll find in your home, from radios to MP3 players to cell phones and (increasingly) computers. In practical terms, the standard protects factory workers at the production level, sharply reducing their exposure to hazardous substances. The standard also has a profound impact on the disposal and recycling of electronics, in that disposed substances will no longer have at least six of the most hazardous chemicals formerly found in electronics, and recycled electronics will not expose workers to toxics as they harvest components.
This is a digital recorder/player that works similar to a classic tape recorder. It has a nice LCD display screen that folds up or down for best viewing angle. The button layout is simple and to-the-point for quick recording and playback. The sound is good for playback of audio files but is more geared for talk radio fans. For music, it is also good but lacks much bass.
The DAR-101 will record from a radio, TV, computer, cassette player, telephone, phonograph, microphone, or just about any other audio device that you can think of. It will even record meetings, conferences, and lectures at ease with the built-in stereo microphones. The sensitivity of these microphones can be set to "low" for recording loud concerts or "high" for recording quiet board meetings.
Using a special cable, it is compatible with the CCRadio-2 and CCRadio 2E models for easy radio activated recordings. There is another cable included for recording important telephone calls from a landline.
Using a timer, the DAR-101 can be set to automatically turn on, record for a selected amount of time, and turn off when finished, every day of the week. All recordings are saved in MP3 format for easy transfer to a computer or portable device.
The recording level is adjustable for setting the loudness ahead of time. There is also a record balance for adjusting the audio between the right and left speaker channels.
Instead of tapes, it uses standard digital SD cards (not included) that can hold many hundreds of hours. With a 4-gigabyte SD card, you can record for over 120 hours at standard quality 64kbps (kilobits per second). For higher quality recordings, you can adjust the recording quality to 128kbps or 192kbps. Selecting a higher kilobit per second recording rate will increase the quality but will also use more memory space.
Since digital recorders tend to use batteries quickly, the DAR-101 has a built-in charging circuit and power adapter for using rechargeable NiMH AA batteries (not included).
Other features include a built-in clock, headphone jack, digital coaxial output jack, line-input jack, line-output jack, 1/4 inch MIC inputs for right and left channels, WMA file playback, USB port for playing flash drive files, voice activated recording, and automatic track creation after 30, 60, 120, or 240 minutes. There are also various repeat and playback options. Runs on 4 "AA" batteries (not included).

The recorder utilizes all 6 pins of a standard telephone jack. Most telephone extension cords we have found only come with 4 pins.
You will want to check your cables. The DAR 101 has the same standard color coding on its line in/out jacks as a typical radio and not those of a recorder.
If you are using color coded cables you will need to swap the colors (ex: red to green and green to red). The cables should be running from your radio’s Line-Out to the DAR 101 Line-In and if used, the cable from the DAR 101 Line-Out should be running to your radio’s Line-In.
