Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent this is my second digital voice recorder, my first was a Sony, bought a week ago, i wasn't impressed, but this Olympus superseded all my expectations and it blew away the Sony on performance , and its stereo as well what a bonus, couldn't wish for better and what a great price from maplins.
