In short, a recording mp3 player with built in FM radio (that runs
Rockbox ofcourse) is quite scarce. The dual line outs is not an absolute
requirement, but could be nice. The gigabeats are not too badly priced
on fleabay. I'll check out one of them. The Ipods have a sleek design,
but lack functionality such as integrated FM or recording. (well so do
the gigabeats...) The IPods are also an option, although decent battery
life is also quite nice. Maybe, considering all, the H300 or X5(L) are
after all the only one meeting my requirements... What a pity... We'll
have to dig around for a X5L...
