Hi John and Peter

Yes, that's the one I would like to go for, so have requested it.

Many thanks both for your input, most helpful. 


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Hi Jackie,

The DM5 is as  Peter says, superb, and it allows naming of files and folders
etc. It is small, about the size of a modern mobile and it is light and
fairly easy to use. A bit pricey, but I suppose you get what you pay for.

Cheers.

John.

Hi Clive and Peter

Many thanks for this really excellent info on your preferences.  I would
like to have a good, small recorder, but one which could also act as an MP3
player and thereby name songs and folders etc.  Someone suggested the LS11,
but I haven't heard of this.

Thanks, all comments welcome. 


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Hello Jackie,

I recently purchased the LS-3 which has some improved features over previous
models.  Although there is voice guidance through the menus, not all
functions are accessible, such as the clock, system information and reading
filenames. 
Olympus have taken a step backwards from the DM-5, which has text-to-speech,
and reintroduced prerecorded speech prompts as in earlier models.

Having said that, as a recorder, once set up for the recording you wish to
make, it is ideal to take out of your pocket or handbag and capture what you
wish to record.  Of course, you can also plug in external microphones.  With
this latest model there is now a music folder and the recorder folder with
folders A to E, so you only have one folder for storing media files such as
audio books, music and podcasts. You could put these in separate folders in
the music folder, but as there is no voice feedback on folders and files you
create you would have to memorise where they are.

for memory storage, you have 4GB internal memory and it will accept a 32GB
microSD card.

I hope the above info is helpful.

Best wishes,

Clive Pallett
