Pogo Radio YourWay LX

Pogo has entered the controversial realm of digital radio recording with the Radio YourWay LX, a tuner designed expressly to capture radio for those who frequently miss favorite shows. The Pogo device converts live programming into MP3 or WMA format and can be set in advance to record as many as ten separate events. Recording is also possible for line-in sources and through a built-in microphone. All of this is controlled through a unified iPod-like control wheel.

Because of the relatively low bitrate of radio, the recorder demands little memory for long sessions: the 128MB of built-in flash lasts for as much as 8.5 hours, Pogo says. Removable SD media extends this time to 70 hours on a 1GB card, and the quality is adjustable to up to 256Kbps for clearer sources. Playback itself is measured at 15 hours on a single charge. Online retailer C.Crane ships the Radio YourWay LX today for $200. [via Orbitcast]
