Hey Steve! How are ya man? How's the Christian rock going dude! It's
rocker from the old PC audio list. I'm still rocking away here in Canada.
My H-140 came with a microphone from the manufacture and I'm sure it has no
pre amp. got to tell you though, I never use it so can't really comment on
it's performance. There's a lot of knowledge on this list so your answer
will be forth coming soon. And knowing you, you will be a great source of
info yourself down the trail. Sorry I could not be of more help but alas,
I'm just a simple rockbox user and I sure don't like to post unless I know
what I'm talking about. I've already eaten enough crow on this list! LOL

Hello fellow Rock Box fans,

I just received my Iriver H120 this afternoon and promptly installed the
latest daily build of Rock Box onto the device. I am legally blind, and I
must say that the voice menus are an absolute godsend; though I have found
some serious startup problems on which I can elaborate later if necessary.
My ultimate goal is to replace my outdated Sony MZ-N707 recorder with the
H120. One thing I have found is that there appears to be no way to use an
external microphone with Rockbox running, be it mono or stereo. Are there
any plans for adding an external microphone option to the recording source
menu so an external preamp won't be needed? I plan on making many recordings
with stereo microphones, which the MZ-N did adequately. I do have an
external preamp on hand which I can use in the mean time, but I would love
to not have to carry the extra hardware around. I know that this is project
is based on nothing but volunteers, and I must say that despite the current
limitations in the Roc!
 kbox firmware I'm really impressed. Once I study the source code a bit, I
might have some idea how to add this feature myself, but until then I will
just sit back and hope for a solution.
