A quick bit of math indicates that this recorder, like all their newer ones,
only records at 64Kbps rather than the 128KBPS of the DS2.

Beth, for taking notes, this would be nice.  For doing podcasts, not so nice
in that it does not record in either MP3 or Wave.  I have used Olympus
recorders with voice activation and in a quiet room, they work quite well.
You can talk for a while and then stop to think of something.  If you are
very quiet when you are thinking, the recorder will stop recording until you
speak again.  So if you pause 15 seconds to collect your thoughts, the
actual pause you hear in the final recording may be only something like 1
second.  It's very nice in that regard. I just wish it was more podcast
ready, but as I said, if you want it for taking notes, it sounds nice.  I
don't have a way to compare it with other Olympus units since it is not out

I hope this helps.

Neal, I'm a neophyte:  What is the disadvantage of the new recorder, in your
view?  I like the voice activation choice, also the one AAA battery.  Beth
