I just ordered a Marantz 660 (my old Minidisk broke) - they're about  
$499... you can find marginally cheaper ones (Edirol etc) but the  
spec is nowhere near as professional. The 660 is the little handheld  
one, but it's got full XLR input with phantom power and will record  
16bit WAV - should be adequate for my needs.
