I've got a Zoom H2 as a fieldrecorder, but I don't like the noisy preamps and the interface. So I was looking into a new fieldrecorder and found some interesting ones. First I found the Sony PCM M10, which is supposed to be very quiet. It's small and portable, and has a nice interface. However, I have some doubts about using it with a phantom powered mic, and it also doesn't have XLR inputs.
Then I found the Olympus LS-100, which does have XLR inputs and phantom power, but is on the larger side. I won't always have an external mic with me, and am going to carry my fieldrecorder with me most of the time, so the mics and pre's need to be very good quality.
I'll be using the devices mainly to record foley, ambiances and soundeffects. Basicly, anything interesting I might come across. I would like to record very quiet sounds too, so I am also thinking I may need an external preamp, like the Sounddevices MP1.
Budget isn't that much of an issue. Which would you recommend?
