Hi Aditya,

If you're handy with a soldering iron: yes. What I did is take the
microphone out, wire it internally to the tip pin of the digital in/out
conector (not sure if it's in or out - never use it), and connect the
microphone to a 3.5mm connector. Works fine this way, same quality, but no
hd noise. Be sure to scratch the connections on the pcb to the digital i/o
connector though, and be sure to choose the tip pin to avoid potential
short-circuit, etc.
Note, this is for Recorder V1; Recorder V2's don't have digital I/O so
you'd need another solution here.
