It looks pretty nice! 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.  I have better recordings from later rehearsals but haven't
uploaded them anywhere...
