End of Life (“EOL”) Support for Hardware Model DS-4000


Please allow this document to serve as Notification for End of Life Hardware support from the Olympus Corporation on the DS-4000 Professional Digital Recorder Series. The DS-4000 was released in 2004 and has since been discontinued in 2008. Repair parts for the DS-4000 series recorders, which also include the DS-3300, are no longer available.


A large thank you to our Pro Audio Distributors that made a commitment long ago to purchase a large inventory of repair parts for these models. Their inventories are now exhausted and end of life is in effect. Our loyal Pro Audio Partners know that Olympus has always been the industry leader in providing a trailing supply of repair parts for a significant time period after a model is discontinued.


If there are any questions concerning the EOL for DS-4000 parts, please contact your distributor. Our Professional Series DS-7000 and DS-3500 Recorders are outstanding replacements for these older models, and offer many valuable new features
