Re: what to use for record rehearsals and gigs ?

I use the iRiver IFP-795, and I'm very happy with it. I notice that
the iRiver store has the ifp-780 for $59.95 now:
so it's not a big risk. (The iRiver IFP models are the only mp3
players that I'm aware of that will power a condesor microphone. The
best recording quality is mp3 320kps)
