iRiver F700 Recording

iRiver on Tuesday respun one of its long-time players into a new version for those who like to capture audio as well as listen to it. The F700 Recording Edition now has a line-in jack for directly encoding audio from a CD player, a microphone, or another outside source; it can also record FM radio directly from its built-in tuner. Equally important, however, is said to be its storage. The F700 is unusual in its size for carrying 4GB of flash that gives it either 72 hours of full stereo music recording or 288 hours of voice. Playback of MP3, OGG, or WMA tracks lasts for 40 hours on a disposable battery.

The Japanese branch of iRiver is selling the Recording Edition of the player today in black or silver for $191. A North American release is a possibility given company history but hasn't been discussed. [via MobileWhack]

    That looks familiar

    That looks almost exactly like the discontinued iRiver IFP-780/790 series. They also had mic/line input capabilities, although the mic-input always picked up some distortion on the two models I had. The line input, on the other hand works great.
