Excerpt: Plenty of gadgets claim to be tough without actually being tough. (You know the type; loud as a motorbike, but wouldn’t bust a grape in a food fight.) But the Olympus LS-10 digital recorder actually walks the walk.
Pros: Can double as a high quality main input mic. Internal low-cut filter cuts out low frequency sounds and clarifies human voices accurately. Dual 16mm round dynamic speakers boosts recordings for a quick listen.
Cons: Lacks XLR inputs. Back speaker audio fidelity is imprecise and a bit echoey. Monochrome display on a 0 device? What is this 1998?
