This might suit. I havent used one myself, but...


Searching for the highest recording quality in a portable device? EDIROL 
handpicked the top analog and digital components for the R-1. The unit 
records and plays back at crystal-clear, 24-bit audio resolution without 
compression. Electrolytic capacitors provide stable, reliable power to 
the analog circuits, eliminating DC interference and offering a truly 
low-distortion sound. Maximum recording time is approximately 137 
minutes (MP3, 64 kbps mode) when using the included 64 MB memory card. 
The R-1 offers nine quality modes ranging from 64 kbps compression to 
24-bit linear WAV.

  - The downside is that it doesnt lat that long on a pair of AA batteries.
