Over at CDM, Peter has a good post about how it's a shame the new iPod still won't record properly, and the various alternatives - most notably the Gemini iKey and the M-Audio Microtrack. He got me thinking about all those other non-Apple MP3 players. Don't some of them have recorders built in? This piece from CNet reviews 5 flash/HD players with line-in, from $139-$299. I haven't used any of them, so I can't vouch for quality. They all record from 1/8th inch jack to MP3, so you'll need converters or external boxes to use a proper microphone. Here is a long review from a guy using an old iRiver iHP-120 (they now go for about £150), which has digital in+out, and can record uncompressed wav files (limited to max 795mb, for some reason). The desperately ugly $215 Nomad Jukebox 3 could do the same (possibly without the limit), and is reviewed here. Anyone using any of these?
