No, I could not find any more of those, and I should have ordered on Friday
night, instead I waited until Sunday.
I did not understand the name on the section listing the re-seller, but it
appears that Amazon may have been posting a personal sale of a new JBR 20,
because a person sent me an e-mail stating "Thank You for your purchase, and
that's about all they wrote in the message.
I noticed that Amazon sells products for other companies, but I did not
think it was done for individuals.
Maybe it's just a person with a small business who had some jukeboxes.
I am hoping it is in a totally sealed plastic box, so I can be sure it is
really new.

Was that the one with the $50 rebate? If so, it is the V2 or SE as Amazon
calls it. Enjoy...rocker

Hi Glen,

Yours is the V2 recorder. The one below is the V1. Reputed to be a better
design with headphone jack on the side. More reliable then the V2. And of
course, replaceable AA batteries. Archos no longer manufactures the V1 or
the FMR. The V2 uses the old FMR box with no FM radio. Unless you were
lucky or, unlucky as some would say to get a special V2 with a surprise FM
radio.

HTH...rocker

I just bought a JBR 20 for 165$s new from Amazon.
No FM, but I don't use that feature much on my current unit.
But I might if the voice menus could work with it.

I have found a place here in the U.S. that is selling brand new factory
sealed Recorder 20's (version1) for $249.20, Archos part #500277
http://store.yahoo.com/softbyweb/arjump3re20.html. Their website says
they also have Recorder 10's for $225. I called them because I didn't
believe that it was a, version1, I made the guy make sure it was a
#500277, he said they have about twenty more. I just received mine
today I order it on 4-30. I haven't tried it yet but it has blue
bumpers, hopefully it is flashable the one have had for a year isn't.
The only problem I see is this from their website:
/*All defective/opened merchandise must be returned/replaced with the
manufacturer. There is no store warranty on any product(s), unless &
otherwise specified on our website.*/
Will Archos refund (for an discontinued product) if the unit is defective?

He who hesitates....

Randy
