A couple of negatives about the FM Recorder versus the Recorder.

I understand that SPDIF out works on the recorder, but not the FM
Recorder. Also, the FM batteries are not user replaceable. The custom
LiOn cells used are not even *available* except from Archos, and they
demand you ship the unit back for replacement.

Since I'm portable and listening to music far more than I am stationary, I
swap batteries a lot. Therefore I will NEVER own an FM Recorder.

Drooling over the Recorder, though...

Michael
