Digital MP3 Recorder-Player with Built-In AM/FM Radio

One of the best MP3 digital recorders with onboard AM/FM radio just got better! The CC Witness Plus includes several new features like stereo microphones, CD quality (WAV) recording, and a Mini USB jack, making it a "Plus". You can listen to rich, full audio using earphones or the built-in stereo speakers.

Recording with the Plus

Whether it's from a radio, computer or home stereo, the CC Witness Plus will record high-quality audio from your device. Just plug in the 1/8" input cable and press the record button. Recording your own music files is simple and saves money compared to buying individual songs. You can even detect song breaks and create individual recording tracks like a CD. You can then skip to the next song when you playback your music files.

The CC Witness Plus now has One-Touch Recording. Simply press and hold the record button to get 1, 2, 3 or 4 hours of instant recording. You can record using the built-in microphones or from the line-in using the included 1/8" stereo line-in cable.

If you are a talk radio fan, then you may love the 20 independent recording timers. Timers allow you to record all your favorite shows so you can listen at a more convenient time. You can also use the timers to eliminate the commercials normally found at the top and bottom of the hour.

With the built-in stereo microphones, you can record meetings, memos or even a live concert. The CC Witness Plus can accept an external mono or stereo microphone for even better voice recording quality.

Radio on the Go

For mobile use, most new cars have an 1/8" auxiliary MP3 jack or mini-USB jack. You can plug the patch cord directly from your MP3 jack or mini-USB into the Witness and then use the Witness to listen to an almost unlimited audio library you create.

The CC Witness Plus is an excellent portable travel companion because of its small size and capabilities. AM and FM radio reception is very good for a pocket radio and there are 10 easy presets per band to access your stations quickly. For better AM reception, there is an option for disabling the display screen reducing any possible interference. For best FM reception, the CC Witness Plus uses your headphones or an included wire as an external antenna. FM mono can also be enabled to improve weak FM stations and reduce automatic stereo switching sound.

Saving space

You can maximize your recording time for voice by adjusting the audio quality to a lower speed of 32 kbps (kilobits per second). When great audio quality is necessary, you can set it to record at up to CD Quality at 1411 kbps. There are six selectable levels of audio quality. The CC Witness Plus comes with 2GB of onboard memory which stores up to 2000 audio files or up to 140 hours of recordings at 32 kbps.

Using an optional SD memory card will give you more recording time and is a great way to collect hard copies of your favorite programs. An SD card can store more content than a CD or cassette tape. We recommend, as a maximum size, the 8GB Sandisk brand SD card for stability of operation. Larger cards may work with proper formatting. If you have success with a brand of larger size SD card please let us know.

Edit makes perfect

Copy, chop, erase, or rename your files with the powerful editing features of the CC Witness Plus. File names and folder structure can be changed and edited through your computer also.

From Witness to Computer and Back

Transfer your files from the CC Witness Plus to a Computer using a USB cable. With a computer you can listen, store, or upload your files over the internet. If you already have a collection of MP3, WAV, or WMA files on your computer, then transfer them to the Witness Plus for your playback enjoyment. Please see the FAQs for important information regarding file transfers.

Get the most from your CC Witness Plus

To get the most out of your CC Witness Plus be sure to pick up the CC Witness Plus Accessory Kit for only $39.95. The kit includes a charging cradle for the Witness Plus, an AC adapter, a clear carry case with belt clip and also an armband carry case. The carry cases are great for hands-free listening. If you want to save a little money you can purchase the CC Witness Plus and Accessory Kit together.

Please note that neither the CC Witness Plus accessory kit nor CC Witness Plus firmware are compatible with the original CC Witness.

I rated this in 2013 now it is 5-20-15 can only like it better I record about 4 to 5 hours of timed recording per day (do you know how many cassette tapes that would be or reel to reel or 8 track? plus you would need to be close by to change tapes)on an 8gb card and can get about 2.5 to 3 days before recharging not playing back after recording and more than a month of recorded programs. And this is set at the fm setting on bit rate.we still don't have am much out here so have not got to try on am but have used line in works very well mic works but haven't used much. about the only two things would be if it worked like a dvr while you were listening on the radio and could buffer the first 10 sec or so to get the whole song, and last but not lest when you set timers you could put set timer in a stated file folder . but it is very very nice over all..!! and very open and user friendly... yes the edit stuff works very well, rename files all the time copy is fast for a little guy . I hav

"I originally purchased a CC Witness because I was looking for an mp3 player that had both AM and FM capabilities. After looking at all the usual suspects I heard about the Witness on the radio and said to myself ""self, give it a try."" I was not disappointed. It took literally three years of constant abuse everyday for it to finally wear out and need replacement. I listened to it on my drive to and from work, as I rode my bicycle across four states and it was my constant companion during the hundreds of miles of training and daily walks with my dog.This new Witness Plus has the same easy to use features as the original as well as the upgrades talked about on the website. The two changes that stand out for me are the interface plug used for charging and hooking up to a computer is no longer a proprietary plug, it is a standard USB available at any electronics store and the battery life is SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER! On my original I would have to recharge after about 10 to 12 hours of
