Digital MP3 Recorder-Player with Built-In AM/FM Radio
The CC Witness Plus is one of the best, most versatile and compact digital personal recorder/players made. Built to record your favorite radio shows. It can record for hours. Great as a travel radio and for listening to all kinds of audio. If you like to exercise to music, the CC Witness Plus can record your favorite music from the internet. A special feature can create individual recording tracks so you can skip to the next song or delete songs you don't like. You can listen to rich, full audio using the included earphones, the built-in stereo speakers or a patch cord to your favorite radio.
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. 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 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.
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. If you ride a motorcycle - check out our blog post about how Sue uses the CC Witness Plus on her rides.
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 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.
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.
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.
When you order this kit you receive all the items needed for recording your favorite radio shows, transferring files to and from your computer, charging the CC Witness and hands-free listening. This "Enthusiast" kit includes the CC Witness Plus and the Accessory Kit. The accessory kit includes earbuds, a charging cradle, AC adapter, clear carry case with belt clip and a sports sleeve/armband carry case.

Excellent unit - well made, instinctive to use (aka didnt need the manual much). Its just the big honking charger and base are not transportable. For those of us who live on the road, this needs to be fixed in the -2 version.

"This is a review of a ccwitness plus on firmware ver 1.1_107There are 51 radio stations that maybe within distant listening range of 45159 (New Vienna, Ohio). (39° 19' 55"" N, 83° 41' 17"" W) my location according to http://radio-locator.com/ I can put my new ccwitness plus on scan and it will stop at nothing on the AM or FM band! The nearest FM station is WKLN which is just 4.3 miles away and I should be within their ""local"" range. WKRC 550 AM is 46.2 miles away and has 5,000 watts of daytime power, yet is unlistenable. WLW 700 AM has 50,000 watts of power and at 34 miles is barely listenable if I'm standing in just the right spot. If I'd like to walk around, the only thing listenable are the files I've loaded onto the ccwitness. Certainly not the radio. On a more positive note, for those of you living in a major city, the ccwitness plus does recognize a 32 GB Sandisk ultra SDHC card. SDSDH-032G-AW11, and I have recorded files to it. It reports the card as a SD card with 29.7
