My line-in recordings are GREAT from the Archos mic - not studio quality -
but perfect for their use.
But dont forget that you are compressing - even a very HQ, you WILL lose
SOME data through MP3 compression. It all depends on how much of a
perfectionist you are. If you are comparing to a PC sound card, then you
will NOT be disappointed.

I have never noted these feint HDD noises in line-in recording, but I will
take a closer listen sometime and report back.
