Adam, your posts seem to indicate that you think the LS-11 is better in terms of recording quality?

There is no 256kbit setting (which I would prefer) and there is no variable bit rate setting (which I consider ideal). So, if you don't want to blow tons on memory on LPCM (CD-quality) recording, you end up having to use 320kbit MP3, which has excellent quality, but consumes about 1/3 more memory than VBR MP3.

A lot of consumers would use this type of device for vocal recording.
I don't see VBR as giving you a huge advantage, to be honest, especially with 4+ GB of storage.
The variable speed control and automatic level control are awesome features.

for recording music i usually use pcm at highest bit rate.
256kbit would probably be a nice option

I love VBR because it reduces memory consumption without compromising quality. VBR turns out to be a max of 220kbit for most material because there simply isn't any additional information present in the source that would be audible. But, in quiet passages or monotonous passages, it can drop as low as 128kbit/sec without any loss in quality. So, depending on the material, effective bit rate can be well below 200kbit/sec, and it still sounds as good as 320kbit/sec constant bit rate.
