RE: Bargain prices for jbr fm 20 GB units?

If you don't want digital and you don't want easy to change batteries and
you don't want a _good_ radio receiver (as mentioned below), then maybe the
lack of remote will put you off.

If not then maybe a V2 is the baby for you :) It _is_ a bit smaller and
lighter :)
