Thanks for the pointer Damien. I got another pointer from Terrence:
They all seem to be comparable products... ranging in around mid $400's all
the way up to $900's.
I'm surely going to stay on the bottom end... So, I guess the next step will
be to compare the Edirol to the Marantz PMD660. Let me know if you folks
have any thoughts on it.

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.
