How could anyone possibly Gage the quality of a recording through small
speakers that aren't even designed to sound any good rather they just
appear to be put into a recorder as an afterthought.
Good recorders in the past have not necessarily had any speakers in them
at all and I can give perfect examples of this.
The Sony Wmd-6 professional cassette walkman.
The Sony MZR-900 Minidisc recorder.
The Sony PCM-D50 recorder.
The above machines sold not because of any internal speaker but because
they were good quality recorders.
Another point, do you expect to be able to judge how good a music file
sounds just through listening to the internal speaker of your phone?
The Victor Reader Stream may I remind you doesn't even come with a good
quality sound from its internal speaker.

Ah look at what Zoom calls the speaker. It's called a confidence
speaker. So for the sighted I guess it's just to see how the sound
came out. Though not in a real good way. For us the blind it helpes in
that you can hear something thus know the thing is even on. Now I
agree with ya that you should at least have some ear buds. But some
people and Neal apparently is 1 don't like doing that. Well Neal also
uses those in ear mikes Larry Scutchann did.

The speaker of a recorder to me at least isn't all that important as
I always carry around a pair of headphones and I often wonder why
manufacturers bother to build speakers into recorders in the first
place, after all I buy the recorder to record with.
One thing I do like with the LS-P4 is the ability to output sound
through a Bluetooth speaker or headset.
Some of the best speakers I've heard in recorders go to the Olympus
LS-100 and the Zoom H6.

Hi. I'm wondering how the speaker sounds on this model. I currently
own the dm720 and also had the lsp2 for a short time which I
returned. The one thing I really don't like on many of the Olympus
recorders is that they use really tiny and tinny sounding speakers
with little volume. I think they can and should do better. How would
you describe the sound characteristics of the builtin speaker of the
lsp4? Amazon currently has this model for $180 with free prime

Subject: [all-audio] Olympus LS-P4 Recorder
Neal's talking about the LS-P2 isn't he and not the P4? I've no idea
how similar or different these machines are.
I did think about purchasing the LS-P2 as Ferguson Enterprises had
it on sale.
I originally wanted to purchase a LS-14 but that model is now
discontinued as we all know.
A friend advised me of a local Olympus dealer who he thought had the
LS-14 in stock as it was listed on the web page.
Unfortunately that web page listing was out of date so the dealer
asked me if I'd like to purchase the LS-P4 which - according to
Olympus Australia - is the replacement model for the LS-14.
One can only hope that there are improvements at the very least with
LS-P4 over the LS-p2.
One thing I did notice which is interesting, if you have a Bluetooth
speaker connected to the LS-P4 and you have the recorder set to
record using FLAC then the recorder will change to PCM mode for
recording for whatever reason but no need to panic as the LS-P4 does
indeed warn you that the mode has changed when you go into "Record

Yeah and basically that's what Neal said it's good fore. It's supposed
to be good for music too by how it's sold but Neal dissagreed with

I’ve not heard Neal’s review on the P2 as yet so I’m none the wiser
I only plan to use this recorder for general use so for that it will
do just fine particularly given the size of the recorder and the fact
it takes 1 AAA type battery.

I just grabbed it. Hmmmm this has a bit of a bigger sound then the
P2. But then again you didn't shut the middle Omni off right? Neal
for what ever reason just hates that omni. It's kinda funny actually
how it gets under his skin. Meh maybe he's right. an omni between 2
cardioids may not be a good idea. I'd have to get an H5 at least 3
real seperate mikes, and try it for reals. Cause they are too little
even on the 14 and too near to each other to really see what having
that omni there actually does bad.

Here’s a link to the second recording I’ve made thus far with the
Olympus LS-p4 and that’s not bad going given I’ve only had the
recorder for half an hour and I stopped for a lunch break <smile>
I’d like to make it clear that there’s nothing special about this
recording and no precautions were taken.
The Olympus was in auto level mode and I didn’t fit a windscreen so
you’ll find that out for yourself I’m sure.
I explain what I’ve found out about the recorder thus far so enjoy
or not as the case may be.
