Hands down, this is the simplest portable meeting voice recorder we have ever made. The DM430 has all the same buttons as a standard meeting tape recorder but all the benefits of digital conference recording equipment. The meeting microphones don't need batteries.

If you have used a Marantz recorder or any other basic tape recorder, you can operate the DM430—no fancy menus or learning the commands. Don't end up with a digital meeting recorder for Windows, where you have to carry around a laptop.

The recordings end up on an SD memory card which is completely solid state and can record 100 hours of audio on each SD card. These cards are entirely reusable, so you never have to worry about buying cards or tapes again.

When choosing a recording device for meetings, it's very important to understand the "Pickup Range." Microphones are what get your portable meeting voice recorder that pickup distance. 2 Conference microphones are included, extending the pickup range to cover up to 60 feet (ca. 18 m) by 60 feet (ca. 18 m). Even the largest meeting or conference rooms are fully covered.

The LCD screen displays all the relevant information about the recording and the recorder's functions. It can swivel up or down for comfortable viewing. Also, the DM430 comes with an AC Power Cord and can run on AA batteries and a Carrying Case.


So if you need something easy to use and easy to set up, choose the best meeting recorder equipment package available.

Expert Tip:

When setting up your two meeting microphones, arrange them into a cross pattern. When you have a large table, say 18 feet (5.49 m), and conference people sitting all around the table, you will need to move the meeting microphones 3 feet (0.91 m) from the end of each table. The pickup range of the conference microphones is in a circular 360-degree pattern, with an up ratio of 6 feet (1.83 m) height. Ok, what does this mean to you? The microphones will pick up 18 feet (5.49 m) around them, so in the center of the conference table, they will overlap the voice impedance patterns to give you an entire surround sound or voice field. 

Definition: Voice field is a professional term for when meeting microphones cross-pick up each other, creating a stereo recording effect. Why do you want a stereo effect? The answer is simple, and it concerns how the brain works. When listening back to a meeting, or audio recording, the person listening/transcribing has two earphones, one in each ear. If you have set your meeting microphones to have a sound field or stereo effect, the brain of the person listening to the conference will be able to understand what is being said up to 51% better than if you recorded in a mono recording. 

This is a favorite recording system for HOA Homeowners associations.

    Conference meeting recorder replacement for our lanier tape recorder

    Posted by Stella on 29th Jun 2014

    We used to use a lanier tape recorder but now we use this simple meeting recorder with 2 microphones. The sound files are recorded to a sdhc memory card. We can store 200 hours of meetings on one card. The files are recorded in cd quality. Our conference never sounded so good.

    conference recorder and our city meetings

    Posted by Sophia on 7th May 2014

    We now have 3 of this conference recorders. we have a city planning, water department and recorder. We learned of this recording package by another city that was using this same stereo conference recorder kit. After the meeting I download the sd card to my pc and upload the audio files to my network. The two professional meeting microphones that came with the kit pick up the voice clearly even if the person is 30 feet away.
