The LS-P1 has two 90° outward-facing microphone units on the left and right to achieve a stereo sound with a natural ambiance. With this microphone design, the phase difference from the time delay between when sound reaching a person's left or right ear is faithfully reproduced, to give a true feel for the direction and spread of sound.
To get the most out of essential specifications like frequency response and directional characteristics, design focus was placed on microphone casing size and the shape of openings. The 90° outward-facing microphone units on the left and right achieve a stereo sound with a natural ambiance.
The LS-P1 supports linear PCM recording at bit rates up to 24 bits and sampling frequencies as high as 96 kHz – far surpassing the 44.1kHz/ 16 bits of CD-quality audio. By selecting this bit rate and sampling frequency, users can make CDs of their own recordings.
The Manual Recording Level setting let you fine-tune the recording level to match the volume of your sound source, maximising the dynamic range for high quality audio recording. This is a particularly important function when recording music. The Limiter function is effective for keeping volume below a specific level when using the Manual setting. By checking the recording level meter on the LCD display and PEAK display indicator, you can fine-tune your recording levels. Otherwise, Intelligent Auto Mode is convenient for when you want to record conversation immediately without adjusting levels.
