[linux-audio-user] Portable USB disk recorder?

How about the MiniDisc recorders. They are very good quality (some claim
99.9% of the CD quality), and very affordable (i.e. $200 range).

Also, consider PocketPC running Linux or Windoze (iPaq with the
coresound's addition), although this might get messy (in terms of
transferring large files onto the main computer via USB 1.0 protocol)
and possibly rather expensive.
