Drawing on 40 years of experience, Olympus has put a feature-packed audio studio in one 5-ounce PCM recorder. The LS-11, with two high-sensitivity microphones and 8GB of internal memory, is the star of the show when it comes to capturing and playing back crystal clear audio, whether for personal enjoyment, hobbies, or even important business functions.
24bit / 96kHz Linear PCM Recording.
Every note played by the band, every word selected by the guest speaker, every bark and chirp heard in the local park, and every giggle from the kids in the backyard ? the digital recording capabilities of the LS-11 help capture it all in rich, better-than-CD quality sound.
8GB of Memory, 23 Hours of Battery Life.
When you combine its 8GB of memory with its ultra-long battery life (up to 23 hours), you immediately see how the LS-11 benefits those who demand hours upon hours of effortless, worry-free audio recording. An additional 32GB of memory can be added with an SD or SDHC card.
Multiple Formats and Features.
With the LS-11 you can do stereo or mono recording in WAV, MP3 or WMA formats, fine tune your recording with an LCD-displayed level meter, edit the audio files, or use an auto-record function that activates (and shuts off) the LS-11 at pre-set levels. Sounds good!
24 bit/ 96 kHz linear PCM recording
Sound that?s even better than what you hear on a compact disc. Every nuance of every note and syllable is captured and played back with a rich and resonant quality.
MP3, WMA and WAV Recording
Select from one of three standard recording formats: WAV, MP3 or WMA. The availability of three compatible formats increases the versatility of decisive, on-the-spot audio recording.
Responsive Pickup, Precision Design. Two precision condenser microphones capture all the sounds with both heightened sensitivity and reduced noise. Their 90-degree outward placement achieves a wider spectrum of sound capture. And the recorder?s rigid aluminum case minimizes vibration for even extra clarity.
8GB Internal Memory and 23 Hours of Battery Life
8 GB of internal memory, coupled with as much as 23 hours of battery life, provides many hours of uninterrupted recording. An AC adapter is also available.
SD and SDHC Card Compatibility
An extra 32 GB of memory is available with an SD or SDHC card. Move files easily between internal and external memory.
Lightweight and Portable
At just over five ounces, with an easy-to-operate interface and aesthetically pleasing design, it is a true anywhere-anytime portable digital recorder.
Built-in Stereo Speakers
Two built-in 16mm round dynamic stereo speakers give the small wonder a wonderfully full and vibrant playback. Earphones can also be used.
A voice synchronization function enables automatic recording when sounds are detected at a pre-set level. There?s auto stop, too.
Recording preferences can be fine-tuned with a Level function that?s clearly displayed, along with a PEAK indicator, on the recorder?s bright LCD.
Create Index marks during recording or playback in PCM mode to instantly locate specific portions of the recording that you want to hear.
With a new File Edit function, you can partially cut or divide your files.
