Excerpt: You'd be much better served with a Sony PCM-M10 at 65~70% the cost or the Sony PCM-D100, even though it's 2~3 times the cost, it's 10~100 times better.The LS-100 has a lackluster build quality, it's bulky, loaded with gimmicks, and has a screen not much bigger than a postage stamp.
Summary: I like the product recording but dislike the menu system. I wish Olympus implement dial and button function rather than users have to go through the menu setting every time. It should have buttons for input, record level and rotating dial. The menu system is very cumbersome.
Summary: Great multi-track recorder that supports up to 8 tracks overdub on a single project file. Perfect for musicians as a pocket recording studio. Allows you to lay down guitars, keys, drums, vocals, backups/harmonies as separate tracks within a project and overdub each while monitoring.

Summary: This little device has some astoundingly clean preamps, playing well with a wide variety of external microphones (thanks to its XLR inputs with phantom power). Its signal:noise ratio is very high overall, and the internal microphones are not to be overlooked either, as they also produce very clear,...
Summary: Unless I'm missing something during a fair amount of field use, the XLRs on this unit are mic level *only* and do not accept line level signals without overload. Line In is handled by a crummy little mini jack on the side of the unit that also doubles as an unbalanced mic jack.
