Except for only supporting line-level external sources AFAICT. The iriver with my AT Pro 24 battery-powered mic is the best rehearsal / jam recorder I've had. I'd rather not have to hassle with any more external gear for my needs. for example... not the best mp3 encoding but still good for a point-the-mic-at-the-band-and-forget-it solution that weighs about a pound total.
