Hi Klas,

No, the lowest noise floor can be obtained at the "SENSE HIGH" setting (-12=
2dBu(A)). The LS-5/10/11 however also provide a very low noise floor at the=
 LOW setting as long as the 24 bit mode is activated.

I'm not sure. Maybe there is no significant difference. I must admit that I=
 have used the Olympus recorders only a few times so far. I instead use the=
 Sony PCM-M10 that provides (for my taste) nice results also with its inbui=
lt mics.
