User Comments: I had an Ondio but returned it. Yes, it had
very basic level meters but the build quality of the unit I had was
poor. Getting a miniplug to sit in the line-in jack properly was near
Optional Accessories: Archos sells a US$50 external microphone and preamp designed to connect to the unit's LINE input.
Specs: SNR: > 90dB, headphone amp: 100mW.
User Manual: Ondio
