||Review: Olympus DS-2 Stereo Voice Recorder|
Response to: Meeting Room
I read your DS-2 review. Sounds like my DS-2 (bought Dec '06) is a lemon. (1)Batteries would drain just from sitting 1-2 days--Olympus said that's normal--so had to take batteries out between uses.
(2)I tried using the DS-2 to digitize audio tapes via a Radio Shack connecting cord, but the recordings drag. Didn't notice it right away but when I timed it, I found they were several seconds per minute slower than the recorded source. I ruled out all other possible causes - cord vs air, usb connection, listening on computer vs ds-2, & using different tape decks. (3) Could never use stereo settings with cord because the sound was incredibly harsh with extra noise no matter what the volume. (4) When I did attempt stereo settings, my understanding was it would still be recorded in mono.
