Tom,

I reaalise that it is difficult to keep pace with the developments in 
technology but what we thought was fantastic technology 10 years ago is now 
very ordinary.

For Olympus digital audio recorders, take a look at the following web page:
https://www.olympus.com.au/Products/Digital-Audio-Recorders/Business.aspx

Under the heading "digital audio recorders" you will see the various categories 
of digital recorders.  For example, under the heading of "business" you will 
see the DM-720 which is the current equivalent of your old recorder.

What is not obvious is that all of these recorders have the same core 
technology and just have different user interfaces to make them more usable for 
different classes of people.

That is to say, user interfaces for the sound and field recorders (the LS 
series) is designed for people making high fidelity recordings.  The interfaces 
for notetaker devices or business devices are designed for dictation or 
recording meetings.

Therefore, a DM-720 business recorder will be good for dictation and meetings 
but, even though it has the digital technology to do so, it will not make it 
convenient to record live music.

By the way, if you take the time to look, the LS-100, LS-14, LS-12 and LS-P2 
are all shown as current models.

Bob and list:  So this kind of brings me to the question I should have asked: 
what is the actual replacement for the Olympus DS-40 or Olympus DS-50?  From 
what I've heard about the PS-2 (not sure I have that right) am sure it is a 
fine unit; it just might be a little more machine than I really need; hard to 
tell for sure at this point!

If you look around, you can still find an LS-14.  I purchased a brand new one 
as recently as 6 weeks ago.

However, you may find it cheaper and just as good, quality wise, to purchase an 
LS-P2.

The LS-P2  has the voice guidance for the menus and is, to all intents and 
purposes, the replacement for the LS-14.

It is, however, physically smaller than the LS-14 but it is particularly good 
for live recording.

The Ls 14 is gone?  Nuts! Isomeone sent me a Neal Ewers review of the ls 14, 
but I didn't know how old that was, as there was no date on it.  I need a 
digital recorder which will be accessible for a piano cd.  My old ptr2 
plextor machine just died.

Well, the 14 don't have a compressor as far as I no, or at least not
one you can adjust, only a limiter. But 100 have both limiter and
compressor.
