Thanks. I've edited your text slightly and added it as a new question.
  My old Player, which I no longer have so can't verify for certain,
also had a line-in jack which I've added. I assume this was present on
the recorder version 1 too.

As you as you release something, you realise there's about a zillion
mistakes in it. This was one I'd caught and fixed in the time between
sending my mail and receiving yours. *smile*

Thanks for pointing that out. Changed.

And I chose '*' because I realised it would misread 'x' as the letter
instead of 'times'. Fixed.

Thanks very much for the feedback. It's very helpful.
