After years of dealing either with those horrid mini tape recorders or small capacity digital audio recorders, it's nice to know about the MicroTrack 24/96 Professional 2-channel Mobile Digital Recorder. Looks like a regular MP3 player, but this heavy duty dealie records WAV and MP3 files, is battery-operated and uses CompactFlash or MicroDrives for storage. Ok, I'll admit, not the prettiest gal around, but can't say she's not sturdy. Sort of a frankenstein monster of a DAT and a digital recorder. All for $500.
