Up until now I have stayed away from audio recorders that bill themselves firstly as voice recorders and I have always focused on those intended for use in a music recording environment.  Well, having received more than a few requests and questions about the Olympus line of digital voice recorders I finally gave in and asked the company to send me their highest quality recorder to do a review on.  What they sent me was the Olympus LS-11, a stereo recorder with tons of storage space and decent sounding features.  So what did I find when I opened the box and took a look?  Read on to find out!
