      "...and they are capable of recording in an extra-quality stereo SXQ
      mode that can record and play audio content up to 44.1kHz at 128Kbps."

      Another proprietary format. Joy!

      That sample rate does at least make it usable -- previous Olympus and
      other voice dictation units only went up to 11 kHz, making them
      wretched for podcasting purposes -- but it's still a lot more
      expensive than the old podcasters' favorite, the iRiver 79x/89x
      series, which records real MP3 files at up to 320 kbps.

      (Which, by the way, does have line in.) >8->
