There is another page which does tell which functions the players offer:

Is the Twiki table easily blind accessible? I have been long curious
about that.

Simply put what you are asking for does not exist. So I will try to
offer you some compromises.
1 - If you remove the requirement for recording via Line-in or Mic-in,
the Sandisk Sansa E200 and C200 series are the only currently
supported players which meet your requirements.
2 - If you remove the requirement for a memory card slot the iRiver
H100 is everything you want, including the optical inputs and outputs.
