The Olympus flagship recorder

24.02.2017
As far as sound quality, the Olympus LS-100 has cleaner preamps and better-sounding built-in microphones than some of their other recorders I have used, like the LS-5, the LS-14, and the LS-P2. The LS-100's microphones are not as sensitive as those on the LS-5, but the sound is much cleaner with little noticable background hiss. When used with a dynamic microphone via the XLR inputs, the LS-100 provides plenty of gain, so the ensuing recording becomes crystal clear and clean.

The device boots up quickly, and I have had no difficulty navigating the menus for simple 1- or 2-track recordings. Every time the device is turned on, you must choose the recording function and what folder to record into, but this only takes a few seconds and no major drawback for me.

Actually, this is a 2-track recorder in the sense that you can only record up to 2 tracks at first. "Multi-track" recording is only possible in the sense that several tracks can be combined into one project. In this regard, the LS-100 is inferior to Zoom H4n, Zoom H4n Pro, Zoom H5, and Zoom H6.

I will use the recorder for vocals, sometimes with the optional remote control.

Convincing recording quality, uncomplicated operation

Andreas67, 15.07.2017
I have the device for a few weeks in use for chamber music recordings (strings, piano) and am very satisfied with the recording quality of the integrated microphone. The sound quality can be further enhanced by the use of external microphones. The operation is simple and clear, very practical is that you can save the recordings on the device in different folders.
Conclusion: I can recommend the Olympus LS-100 standard without restriction.
