Using MP3 will (obviously?) not improve the sound, but I suggest that if
you want a purer recording, the way ahead would be to move away from the
Archos unit, as it is not a professional or 'purists' device.

May I ask what benefits you see to pcm recording? Not that I doubt you
have them, just that I can't think of any and would like your insights here
:) ...wav playback, yes. wav recording, no!?
