Given your biggest reason for the recorder, you are correct. My biggest reason
however is for note taking, and I hate wearing headphones so the sound of the
speaker for playback is important to me. I love the fact that Voice Guidance is
there for a lot of the Olympus recorders but I do wish they did a better job on
their internal speakers.

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.
