Here we have another device that want to compete with the Zoom H2, the Marantz PMD620 or the Edirol R-09. The Olympus LS-10 is a portable recorder with a very good internal memory expansion slot card that will be very useful for those who need to record on the spot with a great audio quality.
The Olympus LS-10 Portable Recorder features 24-bit audio resolution and 96 kHz sampling rate, WAV, WMA and MP3 support, up to 12 hours of recording, built-in 2 GB memory, SD/SDHC slot, 2 cardioid mics for stereo recording, high-quality built-in mic amplifier, built-in stereo speakers, line and mic inputs, headphones output and USB connection (to connect it to your PC or Mac).
This portable recorder is powered by 2 AA batteries and comes bundled with Cubase LE 4. The Olympus LS-10 Portable Recorder will be available this month and its approximate price will be $400.
