Yes, I mean casette recorder, but I want to use a digital audio recorder instead of casette recorder.

On page 2 in the manual there are technical requirements listed, you can find here: http://casio.ledudu.com/images/pockets/casio/periphs/manuelFa1.pdf#page=2, is it a special ones or this is common for all recorders available on the market?

My other idea is to use my phone (Android) with a special cable to connect to the headset connector (if this kind cable is available - edit: maybe this one: https://www.amazon.com/Kingtop-Adapter-Tablet-Headsets-Version/dp/B01I3A47I4?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_2).

And yes, the fx-50x models works without REMOTE connector.

I use a Tandy Computer Cassette Recorder with my FA-3. It works quite well, and is in fact the only recorder I've been able to make work with it, out of a handful of cassette and digital recorders. I suspect it's got something to do with either the strong line-level output of this recorder, or mono vs. stereo jacks.

I used a similar recorder in the UK, the WH Smith CCR800 Computer Compatible Cassette Recorder. It had a switch for "normal" and "compute mode", which fiddled with the levels. However, I didn't get that until 1982 when bought a ZX Spectrum, so I must have been using the family's regular old cassette recorder before then. (It must have been around 1980 when I bought the FX-502P and FA-1.)

On one of the retro computer mailing lists (Tandy M100) I haunt they've had mixed success with digital recorders instead of a cassette machine, apparently due to the voice/music/human hearing optimized compression schemes they typically use (e.g. MP3) not working so well with the data tones.

Best practice seems to be to use an uncompressed format (e.g. WAV), but YMMV depending on the recorder / computer in question.
