Summary: When my original Olympic LS 10 was stolen, I immediately went out and bought a replacement of the same model, without even considering alternatives. It's a perfect tool for podcasting, especially for those who like to record in the field. Solidly built, but still fits in a shirt pocket.
Summary: Fabulous little recorder. The interface is intuitive, mics are great and the audio quality is top tier. Records up to 24 bit, 96k allowing for post recording editing without digital decimation. Sound competitive to my Tascam R40, but much smaller and more intuitive.
Summary: BEWARE OF WHAT YOU ARE GETTING! I bought what was purported to be an "Olympus LS-10" off of the page that said "Olympus LS-10." I paid $325.44 with the shipping, to a company called "AudioBuys". What I got instead, was an Olympus LS-10S, which is a renamed LS-5, as sold in Europe.
Summary: I didn't expect it to work as well as it did. I'm traveling in Mexico and, before leaving, I made it a last minute purchase intending to record live music wherever I might find it. It's easier to use than I might have imagined but doesn't seem to have separate channel recording capability.
Summary: It's a great recorder, audio quality is amazing. The only thing people need to know before buying is that it needs a fast SD card, when I bought it I decided to buy it alongside th e sd card that amazon recommends but after a few recordings I noticed that they were stopping every 15 secs or so for a...
Pros: I purchased this recorder some time ago, and enjoy it very much. I like high quality items. This Olympus LS10 digital recorder does exactly what I want it to do. I record the audio of my church services in the mode of MP3 320kbs, that are held right each Sunday evening at 6 PM in Dallas, Texas at...
Cons: Absolutely none, except I do not need the PCM recording format at this time.
Summary: A wonderful product for those who like quality in sound recording. Functionally it is great product that I purchased from Amazon.com. My only comment is that as an older consumer I have trouble reading the menu screen because at a close range my eyes are not as good as people younger than me.
Summary: I know this is advertised as a voice recorder, but our band uses it to record rehearsals, and now shows. The resulting recording is well balanced (each instrument/vocal discernible), and there's NO overdriving or distortion.
Pros: Portability, record quality, capacity, simplicity
Pros: This thing is amazing for recording anything with pro audio quality and then the ability to dump it off as a WAV file. I couldn't find another device that could do this. Basically, it's a 2 track mastering machine that fits in the palm of your hand.
Cons: The details page mentions that it takes the Olympus D-7AC AC Adapter, but it doesn't saw that it's not included. For this kind of money, it should be included.
Summary: I was pleasantly surprised with the Olympus LS-10 recorder. First, the look and feel of the device is wonderful. The buttons are well labeled and it's incredibly sturdy, yet small enough to fit in a pocket. Setting up for a recording is very easy.
