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. Also note that the 10S has a significant improvement over the well regarded model 10, the inclusion of a low cut filter on off switch.
Summary: Is expensive, but worth every penny! I am not a techie person, so you're not going to get that kind of review here! I loved the functions on this recorder and the fact that it had such amazing sound quality! Now in 2014, I still use it for medical conferences and download them right to my computer! I have yet to hear a digital recorder that has the sound quality that this one does!
Summary: Recommended to me by a field recording specialist. Sounds great, and is easy to navigate. Good memory options and battery life, as well. You'll want a tripod for it, as the handling noise is rather prominent when hand-held.
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 short period of time. I now bought a class 10 16GB SD card and have no problems.
Summary: I conduct interviews all over the world in various locations. This recorder has meet my needs perfectly. The sound quality is excellent and it is very easy to use. I do wish it had its own rechargeable battery, but quality batteries last a while before needing changed. Great recorder!
Summary: My husband purchased this for my birthday. OMG it is the best digital recorder I have ever owned. Granted we are not musicans but paranormal investigators. I hooked up a headset while out at Trans Alleghany and I was able to catch disembodied voices in real time, clear as day... Totally freaky when you hear it real time but amazing!!!! This is now our standard recorder and the others are back up only!!!!!
Summary: When I started shopping for digital recorders I really didn't know what I was looking for. I'm not a journalist so I wouldn't be doing a lot of transcription or interviews but I did want a recorder that would play voice back clearly so that I could use it to learn Korean. I am an amateaur musician but I still wanted a sound quality that wasn't sub-par.
