Olympus LS-10/11 versus Sony PCM-M10

Recently, I’ve become a fan of the theatre of noise blog published by Robin Parmar.  While Robin covers a variety of topics on his blog, one of the things I really enjoy is his reviews of voice recording gear. His reviews are quite thorough while remaining fair and balanced. Through various social spaces I often see requests for side-by-side reviews of our LS series of recorders versus competitive products. Well, yesterday I came across what I believe is one of the finest reviews of the LS-10/11 versus the Sony PCM-M10. If you’re seriously looking into purchasing either of these recorders this review is a must-see. Many thanks to Robin for the review.
