NEW Olympus ls-p1 and ls-p2 recorders

http://www.olympus.com.ru/site/ru/a/audio_systems/audio_recording/sound_music_recorders/ls_p2/index.html

I need your opinions about this devices....can ls-p1 and ls-p2 be better that ls-11? we know that ls-14 was awfull...because of the middle mic with 9000 level of noise))....

ls-11 has best preamps...and best sound of all olympus recorders...

what about ls-p1 and ls-p2?...

^  Those things are tiny.  From the images I could find, it looks like only a mic input?  Maybe it's switchable from mic to line via a menu choice?  Kind of cool how you can directly plug it into a USB.  Olympus is claiming some M10-like record times on a single AAA battery, too...

Looks like these models attempt to scale "music recorders" into the size of their "dictation/speech" recorders that have been impressively small for years.  Until I lost it, I had an Olympus speech recorder that would run for days on AAAs and picked up speech amazingly well. 

As with anything new, the proof is in how they actually perform.

Just browsed through the manual and found out that the units can only record at the following formats:

Quote
[96.0 kHz/24 Bit]
[88.2 kHz/24 Bit]
[48.0 kHz/16 Bit]
[44.1 kHz/16 Bit]
[44.1 kHz mono]

That means that for 24 bit recordings, the sample rate must be set to either 88.2 kHz or 96 kHz. I find this a bit strange.

I was looking at these and could not find an owners manual.

From the Olympus EU site: http://download.aws.olympus.eu/consumer/manuals/audio/LS-P1_LS-P2_MANUAL_EN.pdf...

I can't find any line input menu setting, so I guess no line input... That means I can't use it, but I do think this little machine looks nice and has some nice functions. The usb built-in with recharging battery internally and bluetooth output seem pretty nice. I hope Sony will come with a followup to the M10 soon :-)

I finally borrowed one of these. It really is tiny. And as already stated, it does not have a separate line-in. However, the level controls seem to be able to bring the mic-in down to line levels. I'll try it out at the next show that has an opening band I'm not interested in...

Oh, and here's a size comparison.
