Digital connections work great here for me. I use a Sony MD recorder (I press record with no
MD inserted...) and really like the sound quality.

Assuming your connections are OK (which you can try out be ROLOing the Archos
firmware) you might want to check out if the file you play back is recorded in 44.1 kHz
sampling rate and that you have not changed the pitch. Once you change the pitch,
my MD recorder can't recognize the signal any longer...
