Philips LFH0388 Overview

The Classic 388 Mini-Cassette Recorder from Philips is designed for obtaining superior audio quality through an automatic gain control which adjusts for the optimal recording level. You can professionally edit a recording by using the slide switch, and a turbo wind option allows fast access to any part of the tape. An end-of-letter index tone indicates the start of each document and number of recordings and an LED light visually indicates the record status and battery level.

The Mini-Cassette Recorder features audible end-of-tape and low battery warning tones for safe recording. There is a voice activation function for hands-free recording and a transport lock for avoiding unintentional operation. It can also internally recharge batteries for environmental friendly use.
