[access-uk] Re: Olympus DS-50 Voice Recorder / MP3 player

Hi Carol,

I am using an SP-R09 mic which is especially made for the Edirol from Sound
Professionals, http://www.soundprofessionals.com.  I only got it last week,
but it is excellent.  I will be airing it on my next Podcast next week.  I
won't be reviewing it then, but I will be using it.  The nice thing about
that mic, is that it plugs in with no cable, direct to the Edirol, and is so
made that it looks like part of the machine when it is plugged in.

All the best
