Everything Zen

No, this isn’t about an enjoyable Bush single release from the nineties. Definitely a more interesting topic, but sadly no. Also, the only thing I remember about Bush is that the vocalist married Gwen Stefani. Onto more pressing matters… Radio Geek has taken delivery of a Creative Labs Zen recorder. A cable and adapter are required to connect the unit to the rear RCA sockets of a component tuner, such as the Sony XDR-F1HD.

These particular models are from Jaycar. If a Jaycar Electronics store isn’t nearby, Dick Smith would probably have an equivalent. It’s worth mentioning that Jaycar is an Australian-owned private company. Unfortunately, they also sponsor the Bulldogs in the National Rugby League competition, but no-one is perfect! 🙂

Next time, there will be photos of the Creative Labs Zen Neeon recorder connected to the Blaupunkt Casablanca CD51 posted on this blog. In the meantime, this entry is hopefully better than nothing.

To connect the recorder to the Tecsun portable radio (or any FM or DAB+ portable) via the headphone socket, this cable only is required.
