Re: OT Olympus LS-10 PCM stereo recorder

i asked since i found my core sound binaurals, that were great with my
old sony minidisc, result in quite noisy recordings due to the zoom H2
preamps ... dunno about the H4, but read similar comments over the net
too. instead, the onboard electret condensers, do a nice job, not
comparable to the cores, but good.
