You know, we ought to have some Wiki pages for somewhat-technical
player-specific information that may be of interest to end-users. For
example, it's interesting to know that the iAudio has half the RAM; only has
two gain settings; and that the line in can record from so-and-so decibals
to so-and-so decibals, etc.. This might be a nice addition to the Wiki.

Anyone know of reasonably priced preamps, or have one you could send me for
free as a Christmas gift (only kidding)?
