I've already listened to the olympus recorders on the archives and this year's podcasts. It'd be great, except I notice an underlying hiss or some kind of sound under the recordings made by the SW and DS models. I really like the IRiver. Anyone know about how much it is, and if it's as easy to use as the DS-2?
Thanks for referring me. Believe me, I've been looking hard, and I'm still confused because there is so much out there, and it's hard to ask your questions to a podcast. lol
I think my favorite tests of the recorders is when people go outside or do more than just talk into the mics. It helps me get a feel for how they record more than just voice.
The only recording with the DS-2 that I especially liked was jamie Pauls' recording of the hail storm in late April this year. that by far is the best sound I've heard out of it, in my oppinion. It's not bad, just ... something i can't place.

Enough rambling from me. And thanks again.

There are plenty of us podcasters who are using Olympus products, and you can get them for $200 or less. There are reviews on the BCT web site of the Olympus DS2 and the Olympus WS320 and WS200 machines in particular, and I am sure other people are using other brands--I recall some people who use IRiver in particular; and some people use minidisk recorders. There are lots of choices. You probably would do well to listen to the reviews on the blind cool tech web site, and don't forget to search the archive link on the BCT web site. The archive link contains all podcasts that were done in 2005.
