Subject: Re: which player to buy?

Re: which player to buy?

Ok, thanks for the information. But does or will it have a peak meter and gain controls? I can't find it on their site and i wouldn't know if their hardware could support it with rockbox - guess it completely depends on what hardware they used. Without a gain control, it's quite useless...

I did find some USB recorder that stores to any usb storage device, the gemini iKey. It's as expensive as an MD recorder, big, heavy and still doesn't have a built in preamp...

So, i think there still isn't anything on the market that works as well for about the same price as the old archos or iriver products?... Apart from those m-audio and edirol products, which seem great, but also far too expensive for my purpose. I could buy a HI-MD recorder and a hd mp3 player for that money and then i wouldn't have to deal with very expensive flash memory..

  The x5 has a built-in micro, and a line-in. line-in,-out, power and usb need a small adapter that comes with the player, but is easy to use. or you go and fetch a docking station (i'd recommend that for any stationary recordings).

have to solder a connector yourself for it to work? Does anyone know if the
IAudio X5 has a connector bundled, cause it seems to need some dock
connector as well? The iaudio X5 seems quite expensive though and the
irivers are no longer for sale. I haven't found other devices that work with
an external mic with a peak meter and gain setting. Does anyone know if the
IAudio has this, or will support it in the future with rockbox?
    
Connector ?
The ipod have recording with external devices that are not yet supported.
The x5 is known to have a line-in, so I guess your small portable
preamp would go there simply.
