24-bit/96kHz linear PCM recording
Every note played by the band, every word spoken by the guest speaker, every bark and chirp heard in the local park, and every giggle from the kids in the backyard—the digital recording capabilities of the LS-11 help capture it all in rich, better-than-CD quality sound.

When you combine the handheld recorder's 8GB of memory with its ultra-long battery life (up to 23 hours), you immediately see how the LS-11 benefits those who want hours effortless, worry-free audio recording. An additional 32GB of memory can be added with an SD or SDHC card (sold separately).

All 5's from me. Works like a charm for the singer/songwriter to catch ideas on the fly or to record demo's. I also use it to record band practices which can be pretty loud, but this thing catches it all. Great sound, even on the mp3 320kbs setting.Don't expect good sound out of the speaker though, it's only a reference speaker, to listen to your recordings it's best to upload the files.


Get it!

By sloppyjoe24

This nifty little piece of equipment is all I need for recording. I use this to record everything, acoustic guitar, piano, electric guitar (clean OR distorted), bass guitar, vocals, etc. The sound quality is outstanding. As a test, I held this mic up to a set of computer speakers to see if I would notice a difference in sound between the actual song and the recording of the song through my LS11. When I plugged it into my computer to import, the sound quality was the exact same. THE EXACT SAME! I couldn't tell it was a secondhand recording. I love this thing. It has sound quality that convinced my peers that I had made recordings in a professional studio. I am very thrilled to own this portable mic. I take it everywhere with me now.

If you're a bass player don't buy

By Doug-MaaA4

from Camden, Delaware

I purchased the LS-11 in May and no matter what mic settings I use or recording levels the playback is all but nothing. This is a real waste of money. Allot of nice features but with playback being so bad it's not worth it. Save your money and buy another product.Doug
