The new Olympus LS-5 Audio Recorder clearly owes a debt of gratitude to the Zoom product range, while sporting some high quality features of its own. We’re talking 24 bit sampling, WMA, MP3 and WAV recording modes, 2GB internal memory and an SD slot for up to 32GB total. Priced at £199.99.
From interviews to the rich textures of nature, the Olympus LS-5 captures the whole range of sound in outstanding quality – thanks to 24bit / 96kHz sampling, high-end Linear PCM recording and a high-grade noise-reducing microphone. The Auto Recording feature can also be set to switch on automatically when noise levels exceed a given threshold and off again when the signal is weak.
