New Olympus Recorders
- Just saw this post
Looks like a sweet little recorder and the price is definitely nice. My only
question is if it has a Line-in or not. Since it says the microphone is
detatchable at the top I'm assuming so, but without a spec sheet who knows.
Anyone have any idea?

Another proprietary format. Joy!
That sample rate does at least make it usable -- previous Olympus and
other voice dictation units only went up to 11 kHz, making them
wretched for podcasting purposes -- but it's still a lot more
expensive than the old podcasters' favorite, the iRiver 79x/89x
series, which records real MP3 files at up to 320 kbps.
(Which, by the way, does have line in.) >8->
