Oh, there's the archos gmini 402 and the 500. I tried my brother's 400, and it records very well :) And someone already found out how to run software on it, so if i happen to suddenly have loads of time an attempt to porting rockbox is definately possible too...

Ok, thanks for the information. But does or will it have a peak meter and gain controls? I can't find it on their site and i wouldn't know if their hardware could support it with rockbox - guess it completely depends on what hardware they used. Without a gain control, it's quite useless...
I did find some USB recorder that stores to any usb storage device, the gemini iKey. It's as expensive as an MD recorder, big, heavy and still doesn't have a built in preamp...
So, i think there still isn't anything on the market that works as well for about the same price as the old archos or iriver products?... Apart from those m-audio and edirol products, which seem great, but also far too expensive for my purpose. I could buy a HI-MD recorder and a hd mp3 player for that money and then i wouldn't have to deal with very expensive flash memory..

The x5 has a built-in micro, and a line-in. line-in,-out, power and usb need a small adapter that comes with the player, but is easy to use. or you go and fetch a docking station (i'd recommend that for any stationary recordings).

The second hand one might be an option, but i prefer a HD recorder, if
possible. That site lists the ipods as an option, though apparently you'll
have to solder a connector yourself for it to work? Does anyone know if the
IAudio X5 has a connector bundled, cause it seems to need some dock
connector as well? The iaudio X5 seems quite expensive though and the
irivers are no longer for sale. I haven't found other devices that work with
an external mic with a peak meter and gain setting. Does anyone know if the
IAudio has this, or will support it in the future with rockbox?
The ipod have recording with external devices that are not yet supported.
The x5 is known to have a line-in, so I guess your small portable
preamp would go there simply.
