I have used the recording to get into the middle room, and picked up an ankh and used it on the panel in the room on the right, and a force field has gone down. I then picked up a big gold key which crumbled to duct, and a smaller key.
I still can't see where the map room is with the picture of the Sphynx and the drawing I need for the Sphynx leg in Cairo though.
