Noisy preamp

Comments about Sony ICD-SX733 Digital Flash Voice Recorder:

The sony ICD-SX733 came together with headphones and a soft protection bag.

Pro: very well-build, small size fits easily in a pocket, integrated retractable male USB plug
Contra: Noisy pre-amp (hiss)

The item is perfect to record and transcribe a lecture but the preamp has, with integrated and external microphones, too much hiss for a direct use in quality voice over and "you tube" productions. The poor quality of the preamp makes the advertisement of "CD quality" misleading for an item that is dedicated to microphone recording.
However, hiss can be reduced to acceptable levels using the integrated noise reducing filter and post production treatment. I am using the sx733 with an Azden EX-503 lav microphone and post production treatment (audacity).
