I have the recorder in my hand so I'll take a look now.

The recorder offers 3 encoding modes for MP3, 64K mono, and 128K or 320K stereo.

The 64K mono makes a lot of sense if you're just going to be recording speech say at a lecture and you're not worried about a stereo effect but you do want decent quality speech, 64K mono equals the sound of 128K as the same bandwidth is used for the mono signal that's used for stereo thus a higher quality sound.

320K is fine but I have to admit that I'd be tempted to use FLAC rather than 320K. FLAC is a little bigger yes but offers Lossless quality.

Anyway whatever your preferecne the LS-P4 is flexible enough to accommodate.

I was wondering if Dane would be kind enough to list for us the various mp3 bit rates this device offers in that menu? I've looked on the Olympus site and even in its manual and can't seem to find one short of buying one and exploring for myself.  I'd think it'd mirror those found on the ls-p2 but hate to assume these days. Thanks bunches in advance.

Just external microphone and headphones though you could probably set the recorder to use the microphone jack as a line-out so will try that in a few minutes to see what actually needs to be done.

It seems not to expensive either.
What input jacks do you have on that beast?

I've been playing about with the recorder since then and have made quite a few more recordings.

I really love the way the "Auto" mode works and it should be good enough for most situations people are likely to come across.

The recorder sets the level and if the level is quieter the recorder will adjust the level again however the recorder takes a quarter of a second or so before it starts adjusting and the range of level adjustment is huge! the recorder can adjust from an extremely low level input to extremely high where the quietest sounds are picked up.

To illustrate what I'm talking about, I was recording the radio when my mobile phone rang so I decided to call the party back at the other end of the house.

In the meantime I'd turned the radio off thus everything was quiet so the Olympus LS-P4 took full advantage of that whilst recording in "Auto" mode.

The recorder turned the level all the way up to max and I could be heard talking on the phone from the other end of the house.

Nothing startling perhaps but just an observation.
